First, the author of "You Are What You Wear" says, leave your wallet at home but bring your phone.

Snap pictures of the things you like and decide later if there's a place in your life and your budget.

Secondly, audition expensive items.

Before you buy an investment piece, style it with things you already have.

George Brescia, the author of 'Change Your Clothes, Change Your Life' says if you can't make five great looks, than it's not worth it.

Also try making a 'DO NOT buy list.'

Brescia says make note of the silhouettes and brands you never wear. This way you won't end up with more things you won't wear.
