Why Did I Buy That?

Musings, style tips and thoughts on being a woman from Australia's leading fashion insider, internationally-bestselling author and former editor of Vogue, Kirstie Clements - all delivered with a good dose of wit, common sense and chutzpah.

'Like chatting to a - hilarious - best friend, who happens to be an A-list fashion insider.'
Maggie Alderson

'It's possible to both love fashion and see through it at the same time . . . Kirstie Clements is a very wise woman.'
Laura Brown, Editor-in-Chief, InStyle

As a true fashion insider, Kirstie Clements has seen trends come and go, from the sublime to the ridiculous, but she knows real style when she sees it - like a classic loafer that makes you feel comfortable in your own skin or a beautiful winter coat to take you through more than one season. In Why Did I Buy That?, Kirstie shares personal stories, musings on fashion trends and thoughts on everything from how to successfully edit your wardrobe to how to spend your money more wisely. Oh, and how to kick ass in your career with a well-chosen blazer.

Including loads of clever style tips and a foreword by Brooke Boney, Why Did I Buy That? is for those who want to know what to wear, what to buy and how to age stylishly in these changing times. Seasonal updates allowed.
