It's no secret that Heart Evangelista often goes on shopping sprees at high-end boutiques in or out of the country.
But in a vlog on YouTube dated August 25, 2022, Heart revealed she's been slowing down on her shopping forays.
It turned out that this major "change of heart" was her biggest realization after attending the Autumn/Winter Haute Couture Week in Paris, France, in July 2022.
The fashionista talked in the video about her resolve to invest only in items that would last a lifetime.
Heart said, "I used to shop a lot. But I have a change of heart recently. I would really just spend on stuff that would sing to me 'til I'm old and gray.
"I feel like, you know, I love having luxury items for... just because I know it's going to last me a lifetime or over a lifetime, whoever's gonna get it afterwards."
The Kapuso actress added, "I'm also about sustainability lately. So that's why I wanna buy stuff that I know I can use for a really long time.
"And eventually, if it doesn't sing to me anymore, somebody else can use them.
"So yeah, that's what I've been, you know, going through and learning, unlearning stuff as well."
Heart pointed to her "extremely excessive" closet that groaned with luxury items that she once thought would make her happy but ended up only occupying space.
She said, "I mean I do... you look at my closet and it's excessive, extremely excessive.
"I guess I was going through a stage when I thought buying all of these would make you happy. But, really, it's just taking photos, enjoying life."
Toward the end of the video, she reminded the viewers of her vlog, "If you do where to invest on something, it should be something that you would love forever."
Heart also encouraged her YouTube subscribers to stick to the basics, when packing clothes for travels.
"So yun, so that's why when I pack sometimes, I just bring the basics.
"If you have so much stuff, you just bring so many clothes."
