20 STEPS HOW TO AVOID MISTAKES IN YOUR WARDROBE # 12 AND #13

            Hello Everyone

            Has the heat kept you out of the stores the last few weeks? I know the worst thing to do , when we are all hot and sweaty is to try on a pair of pants, or anything else. But while you might be waiting for the cooler weather to take advantage of the sales, we can learn a little more on how to avoid a mistake.

            # 12 BUY OUTFITS OR SEPARATES THAT GO TOGETHER.

            Do not buy only a skirt or only a top. (Exception: if you are buying a piece to match something you already have.) Often a top and bottom are designed to be worn together. But when you buy only one piece you might never find a match. If you cannot afford a whole outfit or two matching pieces, discipline yourself to wait and save until you have money to buy what goes together.

          #13. TAKE TO THE STORE WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO FIND A MATCH FOR.

          When you want to find a blouse for your new gray suit, wear it to the store and try the blouse with it. Or if you need a skirt to wear with your cream-colored shirt, take the shirt and put it on when trying the skirt you’re consider buying. This way you can avoid coming home with a blouse that doesn’t fit the style of your jacket, or a skirt that looks wrong with the cream-colored blouse.

           No, don’t be hard on yourself by thinking you should know. After all, it is difficult to remember colors exactly or to see what styles go together unless you see them in front of you. I remember a customer of mine, who each time we went through her wardrobe, brought out a skirt she had fallen in love some years back. Whenever I hinted that it was time to let it go, since she had not found a match in last 4 years, she answered: “Don’t worry, one day I will.” and so we hang it back. But eventually, I don’t remember if it was year five or six, she greeted me by saying, “This skirt is really starting to frustrate me, let’s just get rid of it.”

            So, don’t let a skirt frustrate you, just make sure he has a mate when you buy it.

Until next time

          STAY WELL AND LOOK YOUR BEST
