As I pin items to my "Style I'd Love to Emulate" board, I do a mental inventory of what pieces I have to help create the look and what I need to keep my eyes peeled for. Sometimes it can take months of searching to find the piece I'm looking for at the price I am willing to pay for it. I am a picky shopper. Again, patience pays off in the end. I will survive if I am not the first person wearing the latest trend...in fact because I am conscious of how quickly trends change, I tend to lean towards items that seem more timeless.
This is a great way to keep track of the "holes" you find in your wardrobe when you are organizing your wardrobe and wardrobe planning...you could even print the list or pictures to remind you when you are out shopping!
