I have worn these pants twice before on the blog, check here(Office Inspired) and here(Casual Look). However today, I’m styling them with a little bit of ratchetness with my deep v plunge bodysuit. I love these Rebecca Minkoff pants so much, I got them 3 years ago, when I got them I didn’t intend to wear them as much as I do. I think I’ve over done it. So how does Cost Per Wear Apply to this?
Cost Per Wear is a life changing formula that helps you know the worth of an item you’re buying. It’s very easy to understand, nothing like the Pythagorean Theorem…so chill. Let’s get into those numbers!
Cost Per Wear (CPW)= Total Cost Of Item / Number of Days you’ll wear it
Here’s an example, you buy this amazing dress for kes 3,500 and you wear it once per year, the CPW is kes 3,500. Here’s another example, you buy a pair of simple denims for kes 5000 and you wear them twice a week, the CPW is kes 48. You’re getting more out of your denims than the one dress that you bought.
In all honestly I don’t use this formula when shopping, as much as I hate shopping, it is supposed to be fun not a math class. However this formula has helped me avoid unnecessary purchases. For those who have been around this blog from back in the day know I used to sell second hand clothes. What happens is, every cute thing you see, you want to buy. Even though it’s not your style or doesn’t fit. When clothes are cheaper we tend to over spend on unnecessary things. It’s okay to accumulate clothes, accessories and shoes that you use but don’t waste space on stuff that you don’t even use in a period of 1 year.
What I do is, every 6 months I clear my closet, any item I did not wear for 6 months needs to go. I either sell them or give them away to charity. You need to save your coins!!
