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
TIP NO. 7 – When you buy a pant suit and a skirt is available, spend the extra money and buy it. It might be more expensive at the moment, but the price of the third piece saves you buying another suit. You will get twice the wear out of the suit, because jackets don’t wear out as fast as a skirt or pants – besides it gives you an option for a different look.
See you tomorrow
I know it is not Monday, when I usually write to you, but this is too important not to share with you right away.
This morning when I picked up my copy of the Women’s Wear Daily and looked at the front page, my heart made a little jump. The model, who always shows the latest fashion, was wearing a skirt covering her knees by 2″ to 3″ – what bliss – was my reaction.
Bliss for whom you might ask? For all the women who are not 20 any more – for all the women who don’t have long, perfect legs – for all the women who did not want to be seen with half their dress missing – and for all the women who did not know how to sit down in a micro-mini skirt.
It looks like common sense has returned – hems are getting lower. For those of us who were not part of the short, shorter, shortest – craze, the new length – over the knee – will makes us feel very fashionable, and comfortable again.
In case you are not yet aware of the new trend, it won’t be long before you will see in stores and magazines.
Until next time
STAY WELL AND LOOK YOUR BEST (in a longer skirt)
