What’s in your closet? Outdated, dull, frumpy, fifteen-year-old frocks? You still have pants with pleats? And those shoes, come on! You know you need some new pieces for fall and winter, just to spruce up the old wardrobe. You want to look current, but still stay within your means. You want to get the best deals that will be good quality to reflect your brand, your style, and last for more than a few months.
But you’re not sure exactly what styles, shapes, and colors are best on you. Unless you know some simple guidelines for shopping, you will keep making the same mistakes over and over. How much longer are you going to do that?
What if you discovered, through a few fun and easy steps, what styles you love, what shapes flatter your figure, what colors and textures look terrific, and how much contrast is right for you to look and feel fantastic every time you go out? Would you feel more in control?
What if someone could do the difficult part of shopping for you, and everything was hanging in the dressing room, ready for you to try on? That would save you time, money and stress. You could have the most successful fall shopping trip ever. That’s what I do. I’ve been saving men and women time, money, and stress doing that, for over eight years.
Before you buy one more piece of clothing:
- Know what styles you like. Find pictures in magazines, catalogs, and advertisements, of outfits and looks that you love. Cut the pictures out and put them up on a bulletin board in or near your closet so you see them every day. Use those photos to inspire you to buy what you love and put together outfits that you love.
- Choose colors that flatter you. Do not even pull clothes off the rack that are in drab colors that do nothing for you.
- Versatility equals value. You should be able to wear each piece of clothing with at least three other pieces of clothing in your wardrobe.
- When you see someone in something that you just love, ask that person where they got it. Certain stores carry certain styles. Are you more of an Anthropologie type, or an Eddie Bauer type? See what styles those stores carry. Shop at stores that carry styles you love.
- Do not rely on salespeople to tell you if something looks good on you or not. Most of them are on commission. They just want you to buy. They don’t care what you look like. I do.
- Don’t buy sale items just because they are on sale. How much money have you wasted like that?
You can go it alone again, like you’ve been doing. But how frustrating is having a closet full of clothes that you don’t even like? I want you to only buy things that fit you, flatter you, focus your brand, and fulfill your unique personal style. Together we can shop at whatever stores have what you need, what’s right for you, and what you love. Don’t waste one more dollar on dreary duds that are just okay. Get the head-to-toe look that you deserve, that communicates to the world who you are, how terrific you’re doing, and where you’re going.
