Today I will start giving you ONE TIP a day – to help you look your best, and to make your life easier by having the perfect wardrobe.
The first serie of tips will be on how to buy your clothes because that is where it all starts — and that is where the mistakes are made.
TIP NO I – Beware of Sales – especially at this time of the year when all stores are advertising big reductions, sometimes up to 70%. I have to admit I have never seen anything reduced by 70% but it made me come in the store. So if you go in, hang on to your purse, make sure you need what you buy.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,400 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 4 years to get that many views.
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.
