Confessions of a Shopaholic Patricia Field Explains Shopping in Moderation

Shopaholic Designer Patricia Field Explains Shopping in Moderation

If the movie ticket price prevented you from seeing Confessions of a Shopaholic in the theaters, you may be excited to know the fun film came out on DVD today — an entertaining night doesn't get much cheaper than a $5 movie and homemade popcorn. In light of the movie making its way to more of the masses, the film's costume designer Patricia Field talked to Shape magazine about her tips for shopping with a budget. Anyone with an appreciation or affliction for shopping, take note.

When asked if she thinks certain items are worth a splurge, the accomplished designer replied:

It depends on what makes you happy. If you see something and you love it, but maybe it's a little more than you want to spend, then buy it. Just don't spend as much on the next item. It's all about balancing. You should splurge on what's really special. Really you're the most important thing, not the clothes.

And there you have it, a simple lesson on shopping in moderation from fashion phenom Patricia Field. Have you found a balance when it comes to shopping?
