Let’s face it, shopping for luxury items, whether designer sheets or bags, requires a skill set all its own. Bloomingdale’s and Neiman Marcus can only stock so many pairs of Manolos and Tory Burch dresses. Despite the potential hazards, turning your shopping expedition into a pleasant experience is still quite possible. Merchandise can come to you sans brutal bargains or short scuffles. It can be smooth sailing, if you follow these steps.
2. Compare the price points. You do not want to pay too much for an item you can grab at a lower price.
3. Take your time. Finding the right item does not just happen. Pace yourself.
4. Do not poach clothes from fellow shoppers. Politely ask where they found them and take a look.
5. Inspect items for rips or stains. Nobody wants to take a flawed garment home.
6. Arrive early. It is true that the early bird has its pick of reently stocked items.
7. Sacrifice purchasing a luxury item is not going to hurt you. You deserve it.
8. Do not fret when you cannot find anything you like. There is always tomorrow.
9. Make sure you eat a balanced meal beforehand. Never shop on an empty stomach.
10. Be respectful to salespeople. Respect can be the difference between paying the full-price or getting a nice discount.
