Fashion Hysteria and Controlling the Urge to Splurge

About six times a year I turn into a crazy person. I become possessed by
a desperate urge to frantically tear through the shops and spend money
I don't have on clothes I don't need.
I spend hours trailing through less-than-ethical websites imagining
the outer limits of my fabulocity in all the gorgeously cheap clothes
available at a click of a button ("if only I had that dress my wardrobe
would be complete". Sound familiar?). There was a time when I would
allow myself to satiate the cravings created by cunning teams of
marketers but those times are no more. So, how do I keep the urge to
splurge on fast fashion under wraps?

Read my 5 tips on how I avoid spending on fast fashion here on my ethical lifestyle blog The Conscience Collective and let me know what you think in the comments!

That is what young ladies love to do. I will have crazy shopping 3 times per year. As a matter of fact 4% of my income has been spent on fashion items like handbag, dressing, jewelry. And i know it is not a good habit. but i just find it diffcult to keep myself away from some newest fashion items.
