Probably not. I've been through my clothes several times, whittling down the excess. (Thank you, Marie Kondo). I would only buy something if it "sparked joy", went with things already in my closet, and was on sale/ within my budget-- all the things a previous poster mentioned when talking about her skirt. Bonus points if it's a perfect replacement for something I've kept and been wearing, not because I truly like it but because it fits and "it'll do".
I try to avoid impulse buying when it comes to clothes.

If I am at Burlington or Ross Dress for Less. And something is just too adorable. I will buy it. I was at Burlington a few weeks ago and found this swishy royal blue skirt. Royal blue is my favorite color. It will go with several of the blouses already in my closet. Did I mention it was $10.
Yes I bought it. I would have regretted it otherwise.
Uhmm, yea, maybe I would. Only if it's *extremely* cute, though, and high quality. I mean... *technically* you only need a few pair of jeans and a few tops to survive, right? So it's kinda hard to define how many clothes are enough... fashion is definitely more about wants than needs. I don't usually buy clothes on impulse... I'm a big fan of "capsule wardrobes" so I like to keep things simple but the way we dress affect our attitude and confidence so... I don't know, I think it's important to invest thought, time, energy, and money into your wardrobe
I'm guilty of buying clothes on a whim...But I have to add, that I did most my shopping sprees when I had the money to spend. Now on a smaller budget, I use a lot more restraint buying unnecessary things. Impulse buying is dangerous
I buy clothing that fits and can wear immediately. I will not buy a pair of pants or dress in a smaller size (no matter how cute or fashionable) in hopes that I can lose weight to wear them later. That is a waste of money and a waste of the clothing.
As I lost weight, I bought clothing as needed. Clothes that I no longer fit because they are too big are donated to charity. Clothes that are too small are also donated.
I would, if I liked it better than everything else in my closet. IF I bought it, I have to get rid of something I already have. My husband and I are a one-in-one-out couple. If something comes into the house (not just clothes either!), something has to go out.

Nope. I shop only when I have a need. I have to be careful with my money as I have some big bills including a mortgage payment, student loans, and a car payment. Plus, the upkeep for those items and myself. I need to eat and such.

No - I NEVER buy clothes unless I NEED them. I am on a very limited income and so as long as I have clothes to wear, including some 'good' (as opposed to fancy/flash) ones, I don't buy them. Most of my "new' clothes I bought when I went to Canada 3 years ago. A lot of the clothes I wear are a lot older, as in A LOT older.
I would encourage you to learn to enjoy looking at cuteness but leaving it at that.
