SHOPPING FOR YOUR SPRING WARDROBE

LOOK BEFORE YOU SHOP

It is Springtime and we are ready for some new clothes. But before you rush out and put your credit card on the counter look at what is in your wardrobe  – put the sweaters aside and take out what you wore last spring and summer, including shoes and handbags.

Do as I say and not as I do – I just bought a bright turquoise bag, because I thought I needed a new summer bag, only to find out that I have a very nice multi-color one I bought at the end of last summer. No, there is nothing wrong in having two bags, but maybe you want to spend you money on something you need more?

Don’t forget to try on what you have – we often remember a blouse looking very nice, only to find out that we don’t like it anymore.Or that something does not fit anymore – so weed out your wardrobe by trying on what you have, and eliminate what you don’t feel comfortable in -yes, even if you have not worn it much – don’t accommodate your clothes, they have to work for you by making you feel comfortable and confident.

Now to what you buy, keep in mind that everything is bright this season – really bright.  But since you can’t and won’t even want an all bright wardrobe, add a bright blazer to wear with your jeans

And look at the shoes in this picture – wedge-platform shoes are the latest look. And they are more comfortable than you might think. I just found a pair that feel like slippers – the wedge allows you to have a higher heel which is offset by the sole.

Another way to add color are prints – the choice we have is pretty and very varied – really for every taste. A pretty patterned top will bring a business suit up-to-date.

I know it is a little work and you will need an afternoon to do what I am suggesting, but knowing what you have in your wardrobe, and what goes with what will save you time and money in the season to come.

Until the next time – I want to wish you

     A HAPPY EASTER WITH LOTS OF COLORED EASTER EGGS

                                                AND

                                     HAPPY PASSOVER

        STAY WELL AND LOOK YOUR BEST

  1. Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks

  2. I’m happy I came across your site on aol. Thanks for the sensible critique. My wife and me were being just preparing to do some research with this. I will be thrilled to see these wonderful information getting shared freely out there.
