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.

See you tomorrow

MONEY- DO YOUR CLOTHES EARN THEIR KEEP?

Hello Everyone

I hope that you have started the New Year with a lot of fun and some New Year’s resolutions.

One of them should be  —  make sure that the clothes you buy are earning their keep. What do I mean? Well sometimes we spend a lot of money on an item and hardly ever wear it – that item is not earning its keep. And on the other hand we have things in our wardrobe, which might have been less expensive, but we could not imagine life without.

I once bought a pair of black pants on sale which I did not really need – but you know how it goes –  they were on sale. Well, it so happened that none of the other black pants I have, perform as well. as these. These fit, keep their crease and are washable – that is real dividend.

If you are wondering about the performance of your clothes, take some time to go through you wardrobe. Put the items you love and wear a lot to one side and those you rarely wear, for whatever reason, on the other. And looking at the clothes you hardly wear, you will be surprised how much you have invested in things that bring no return.

So this year’s New Year’s resolution: – buy only clothes which have a lot of mileage, which allow you to wear them frequently. In order to focus on this while you are shopping remember:

– don’t fall in love with that cute top

– decide if you need it

– will it fit into my lifestyle

– do I have anything to wear it with

– do I really feel comfortable in it

By answering these questions you will avoid the items we refer to as “I don’t know why I ever bought this, I hardly wear it. ” It will save you money, and your clothes will earn their keep!

Until the next time

                        STAY WELL AND LOOK YOUR BEST
