Fashion shopping is certainly an addiction of almost every woman. But sadly it can be one of the biggest loss businesses in the world. Just take an example a high fashion collection arrives in store September 9th! You can buy all the great pieces full price until January 2nd afterwards there is a 30 – 50% price reduction! In less than quarter a year you lost half of the value! Thats more than in cars or tech! On the other hand a classic bag from the same brand has nearly tripled in value over the last decade! While I really love the emotional and inspirational component of shopping I hold the strong believe that its much wiser to plan it strategically! And that’s exactly what this section is about!

A great shoe can spice up an otherwise boring look in the same way an unflattering shoe ruins a great outfit! And surely it doesn’t hurt that much to purchase a shoe as it does to invest in a great handbag. That said let’s sum up what to keep in mind while shoe shopping this fall season!
