TIP OF THE DAY NO. 59 – TRYING ON CLOTHES

TIP NO. 59 – TRYING ON CLOTHES

When it is cold and you are all bundled up with sweaters, coats, and scarves, etc., or in the summer when you feel hot and sweaty, you probably don’t feel like getting undressed to try on a new blouse – or anything else.

So you  might buy it without trying it on, hoping it will fit (and suit you) or, what I have seen many women do, they try it on over what they are wearing – HELP – there is no garment – except a jacket or coat – that will look well when pulled over one you are wearing. “It will give me an idea if I like it”‘ a lady told me recently, while she was pulling one turtleneck over another – how can you like it when the shoulder seams are not in the right place and the sleeves are pulling in all directions?  

If you don’t want to get undressed – don’t buy it or take the risk that you have to exchange it – but putting on a blouse over another one won’t give it a fair chance.

TIP OF THE DAY NO. 53 – THE ONE IN ONE OUT RULE

TIP NO. 52 – THE ONE IN ONE OUT RULE

In order to prevent your wardrobe from bulging, from having too many clothes, from not knowing that you have in your closet, you have to apply the One In One OUT Rule  meaning that when you buy a new item, you have to eliminate one.

But it is not tick for tack – if you have bought a new top you don’t have to get rid of  a top, instead you can take out the skirt you never wear – once you get used to doing this, it will be easy to manage your wardrobe, and you will have a better idea of what you have.

See you tomorrow
