C'mon ladies, we've all done it: Walked into a store and emerged with something totally impractical, unaffordable, or just plain meh. Whether it's a $2,500 Céline bag that you absolutely needed but now can't make rent, or a $12 H&M top that didn't blow your budget but you know you'll never wear, these purchases still cause feelings of buyer's remorse, in one form or another.

Let's get one thing straight, we love shopping as much as the next gal, and the last thing we're going to tell you is to stop doing it if it makes you as happy as it does most fashion lovers.

However, we can offer up a few solutions to help you shop smarter and spend your hard-earned money-whether it's $10 or $1,000-on things you really like and you'll use, as opposed to buying just for the sake of, well, buying. Read on for a complete guide to avoiding buyer's remorse!
