Resale Value

A non-lolita acquaintance brought up the matter of resale value in lolita fashion today, and it got me thinking- how much of a role does resale value play when you are making a lolita purchasing decision, and why? Is it a deciding factor when you're trying to choose between two pieces? Has items' resale value shaped your wardrobe in any way? Has the prospect of a high resale value led you to purchase pieces that you were otherwise lukewarm towards, knowing you could later sell the item if you didn't like it? Has the knowledge that a piece will have a low resale value turned you away from a dress you fell in love with?

Please bear in mind- I'm not talking about a case where you are buying an item with the sole intention of reselling it for profit, because it's pretty obvious what role the resale value of an item plays in that kind of situation! I'm referring to cases where you are looking to add an item to your wardrobe, and wondering how- or if- items' resale value may affect the pieces you ultimately purchase.
