Nicole Richie spends wisely on clothes

Los Angeles, May 24 (IANS) Actress and designer Nicole Richie, who has seen and worn it all, doesn't like to waste money on clothes.

"I've gone through every phase - a "Punky Brewster" phase, where I wore a red sock and a green sock with a black shoe and a white shoe, and a grunge Nirvana phase in the early 1990s," usmagazine.com quoted the 31-year-old as saying.

After experimenting a lot, she now buys clothes that have a longer shelf life.

"I personally tend to go with clothing I can wear season after season and get a lot of wear out of as opposed to something that's trendy that I have to throw out later on. I feel like it's a waste," she said.
