This Not That: 7 Vogue Editors On their Shopping Fashion Rules

We all have fashion purchases we regret making. There’s likely an ill-fitting pair of jeans or an outdated blouse currently hanging in all of our closets, untouched from the day they left the store. It’s OK—we all fall victim to overzealous shopping sprees we like to call retail therapy.
