Undecided about new clothes, so do you keep the tag on?


I have a bad habit of wearing new clothes around the house (and occasionally out and about) but leaving the tags on if I'm not 100% sure about keeping them.  Normally I don't even buy them in the first place if I'm uncertain, but every so often I do this.  It's only ever for a few hours - I don't walk around like this for weeks.  Do you guys do this too?

I pretty much make up my mind before I buy anything. If I get it home and find something wrong then I return it, but I can't say that I have walked around in something for a few hours and then returned it. I use to know this girl that would buy say a fancy dress for some occasion she was going to. She’d would wear it all night and then return it the next day. I'd never have the guts to do that, but she always did. Oh and years ago for my brothers wedding we picked out a dress for the bridesmaids, bought one dress and my mom took in apart. She made a pattern from it and put it back together and took it back to the store. She then just made all the dress's her self from the pattern. LOL I'll never forget her doing that even though it was 30 years ago. LOL They never even looked in the bag when she took it back. She could have brought it back in peaces and got the money and they wouldn’t have known until it was too late.

I leave the tags on them until after I put my outfit together and try it on, if I don't like it I simply take it off and return it. If of course it's still within the return date.

deciding at home right after shopping

as soon i come home i try everything on again(mix and match with stuff i already have), then i decide. if i really like it the tag comes off right away and what i didn't like stays on and comes with receipt back in the bag and i will return it as soon i come back to the store.

No, for me if I buy it I keep it. Unless its something I bought online and it doesn't fit properly.

Totally do this!

I always do this, but it's more of a commitment phobia type of thing for me. I usually won't be returning it but I just like to have the 'option' to return it for a while before I settle and decide that I really love it. I don't think it's a good thing to return worn clothes though and for the most part, I know right away if I really have buyer's remorse and I won't wear it.

Take a picture

If I'm iffy on something I'll snap a quick photo of me wearing it. I find that pictures don't lie. If it doesn't look good, it gets immediately returned.

Never outside.

I definitely never take the tags off of clothing that I'm unsure about. I will definitely wear it around the house, and check myself out a million times - but never outside. I used to work in a clothing store, and we had people do this a lot. They would wear clothing out for a night, and then try to return it later.. I find it to be really horrible, for people who do it like that! But if you're truly unsure, I totally agree with you wearing it around the house to see!
