TIP OF THE DAY – 21 LOOKING GOOD AND DRESSING WELL

TIP NO. 21 – FINDING A MATCH

You might have items in your wardrobe which don’t have a mate.  Like that wonderful skirt you bought in a sale, but you don’t  have anything that really matches –  so it is hanging in your closet not serving its purpose — and when you try to find something that can go with it, it will be hard to remember the exact tone of beige, or without having the skirt, to know how a top you are looking at is the right shape  —- not too long, not too loose——not the right color!

The only way to get it right is to take the item you want to match  to the store, find what goes with it and try it on together. I know it is a bit of a nuisance, but the effort will reward you with a new outfit.

TIP OF THE DAY – NO. 19 LOOKING GOOD AND DRESSING WELL

TIP NO. 19 – Trust Your Own Judgement

Many women say: “But I don’t know what suits me.” I can tell you from experience that most women know what they like and that is usually what suits them best. Just ask yourself: Do I like it? Does it make me look good?”

I am certain that you know the answer if you take the time to look carefully at – and think  about  – what you are buying.

TIP OF THE DAY – NO.17 – LOOKING GOOD AND DRESSING WELL

TIP NO. 17 – Look At Your Whole Silhouette

When trying on a dress, don’t look just at the garment — look at yourself. Does it do something for you? Does the color suit your complexion? Or is that beautiful print overpowering?

I recently watched a lady try on a dress that was very colorful. She loved it, but she looked only at the dress, never at her face. I asked her is she felt that the dress was flattering. Before answering she looked more carefully, and saw that the bright colors washed out her pale complexion.

You don’t buy a dress, or any other garment, because it is beautiful  but because it becomes you – BECAUSE IT MAKES YOU LOOK BETTER.

TIP OF THE DAY – NO.12 LOOKING GOOD AND DRESSING WELL

TIP NO. 12  Make a list of what you need.

Yesterday we spoke about looking at your wardrobe, ‘cheking up, tidying up’ and while you are at it I suggest you find out what you need to buy and write it down – e.g. a white sweater, a nice scarf, a new black skirt and so on. No, I don’t think you can’t remember, but with everything else that occupies our mind, and maybe not having the time to go shopping soon, it can slip your mind.  And  please put that list in your handbag so that the next time you are in a store you can look at it and you won’t be tempted by a dress, instead of  getting that sweater you really need to go with your suit.

See you tomorrow

LOOKING YOUR BEST………

Hello Everybody

Today I want to share with you what I read in WWD (Women’s Wear Daily) this morning

I am sure you know the Italian Designer Donatella Versace, who took over the house of VERSACE when her brother was killed a few years ago in Miami, Fl. She was asked during an interview what she thinks is important in a Broken Economy?

Here is her answer: quote “I believe that in tough times it is still important – more important than ever,  actually – to look your best. It is a way of boosting your confidence and the confidence others have in you.”

You see I am not the only who thinks that it is worthwhile to

                                   LOOK YOUR BEST
