1-Size: Purchase the size that fits. The key is for it to fit you well. No one knows what that tag says but you. A good fit is a greater victory.
2-Discounts: Always ask if there are any additional discounts on your items. There are some that you won’t get unless you ask. Don’t leave the cashier without inquiring. Save!
3-Special Occasions: If you find a dress for a special occassion while casually shopping or browsing….buy it. You’ll be happy you did when that special event unexpectedly comes around.
4-Assess: Shop and style your closet before going on a shopping excursion. Know what you have and need, first.
5-Swimwear: For swimwear, size up. You can try your size but definitely at least try 1-2 sizes up as well, to be sure it fits the curves as it should.
6-Recycle: Wear a quality piece often. Style it differently with accessories for several looks and occasions.
7-Blazers: Polish any look with a tailored blazer. This is a good idea for your casual attire as well. A tailored blazer can pull the look together with minimal effort.
8-Colors: It doesn’t have to match, it just has to go. Don’t play the matchy-matchy game. Be sure pieces work well together. They do not have to match.
9-Strategy: Shop alone sometimes. It helps you focus and gives you more time to try things on. Sometimes shopping should be viewed as a project to enhance your wardrobe, not just fun & games.
10-Time: Shop early. Get to your favorite stores or mall right at opening time. You’ll feel more relaxed and will most likely get better customer service and attention.
11-Shoes: For shoes, be honest with yourself about whether you can comfortably walk in them or not. If uncomfortable to take a few steps in, don’t buy them.
12-Jewelry: Organize your jewelry. Color coding is always good. You want to make your jewelry accessible for easy styling.
13-Quantity: Less is more. Do not overload colors and accessories.
14-Bras: Get re-fitted every 6 months. Our sizes change as we work out, diet, gain weight, lose weight, or build muscle.
15-Wallets: Invest in a quality wallet. They last longer and always look chic while you shop and socialize.
Happy Styling! Happy Shopping!
