Why Do We Second Guess Ourselves? Should I Buy This?

I shop online all of the time. Ok, let me clarify, I look at different online shops all of time. I add things to my wish lists, but I rarely buy. Why you ask? I wish I could tell you that its my budget will power keeping me in check, but really its just not being able to make a decision.

These are the questions that pop up and hold me back.

  1.  Will I find something better on another site? 
  2. What does this size chart even mean? 
  3. How long is it going to take to get to my house? 

This is what I am going through right now. I need to find a swimsuit. I've looked through pinterest, the regular go to sites and I landed on this DKNY suit from Garnet Hill.

I love it, I want it, but I just can't seem to press buy.Why am I second guessing myself and letting the questions above keep me from making this suit mine?

I think this is a problem we all face when shopping alone. I'm so used to having company when I shop that my shopping partners validation helps me buy. When you online shop you don't have a friend supporting you.

So what do you think? Should I push these questions aside and just buy?

I relate completely. I spend a lot more time browsing online shops than purchasing anything, and it has to do with the fact that I don't have feedback on my decisions. I did however purchase a pair of shoes 2 days ago, I hope I'm still happy with them when they arrive.

Alix - totally understand and go through the same things. One thing that will always make me lean closer to pushing the purchase button is if the return options make it easy if I don't like the item. Free return shipping with a return label included is a no-brainer. BTW I love this suit - it seems like you can't go wrong with it!
