REGRETS – keep them out of your life!

Regrets, regrets – who doesn’t have any? Maybe some people don’t. I call them  the lucky ones, but most of us do regret this or that. The worst kind of course is the self-made kin…

TIP OF THE DAY NO. 75 – TAILORS ARE NOT A LUXURY

TIP NO. 75 – TAILORS ARE NOT A LUXURY

There was a time no woman would have been without a dressmaker, and men had their personal tailors. And even today it is not a luxury to have a tailor. No, they don’t make our clothes anymore, but they are still necessary to shorten, lengthen, take in the waist, and adjust a garment to fit our figure.

Especially when a woman is not the same size on the top and on the bottom, a little help from a good dressmaker can make the difference.

How do you know if somebody is a good tailor or seamstress? You don’t until you try it out. Most Dry Cleaners do alterations – but to find out how good they are give them a hem to do and if it is done well, give them more complicated things to do. However, one word of warning, when an alteration comes close to remarking a garment I recommend against it because it will affect the style and never look right.

So when you are shopping and you see a bargain, or something you really like and the skirt or the sleeves are too long, or it is a little  loose somewhere, remember there are still tailors out there to help you.

See you tomorrow

TIP OF THE DAY NO. 74 – COMMIT TO YOUR BEST FRIENDS

TIP NO. 74 – COMMIT TO YOUR BEST FRIENDS

The other day when I was putting on my favourite black pants, and one of four sweaters I wear all the time, finishing it with a duffel coat I have worn all winter, it occurred to me that I wear these items all the time – why – because I feel very comfortable in them . They are like old faithful friends, I can always rely on to feel good.

Do you have friends like this in your wardrobe? I am sure you do – find out who they are and the next time they need replacing – BUY THE  BEST QUALITY  you can afford. You will never regret it, being of good quality they will be your best friends even longer.

See you tomorrow

TIP OF THE DAY NO. 73 – PUT AWAY WINTER AND WELCOME SUMMER

TIP NO. 74 – PUT AWAY WINTER AND WELCOME SUMMER

Please forgive me if I repeat myself. I know I have said it before, but since sometimes we need a reminder I will say it again.

It is time to put your winter clothes away and bring out your spring and summer wardrobe.

If you don’t do it now, you will be standing in front of your closet one morning, looking at warm sweaters and pants, wondering what to wear today when the temperature is going up to 70 degrees.

Other rewards for doing this are:

– you will see what you have in your wardrobe

– you will be surprised to find  things you had forgotten about

– you will see what you need for the coming season

– you will be able to eliminate what you don’t like anymore and will never wear again

– you will be able to make a shopping list that compliments, and coordinates with what you have in your wardrobe.

Don’t be caught unprepared – do it now – and enjoy the sunshine of spring.

Happy Sunny Days    P & R 021

See you tomorrow
