Be a BETTER SHOPPER

Why is shopping so darn frustrating?
Take a look at a few tips I found for you.
Learn to like shopping and how to make it fun,by saving time and money.

Shopping is a skill that anyone can learn.

  • Write it down.  Take inventory, What do you have that works?  What needs replacing? What colors do you need? Don’t rely on memory, write it down.
  • Prioritize your goals.  Decide on what few pieces you need most.  Write these down also.
  • Set a budget.  Not for each piece, but for the day.  And if charging is “out of sight out of mind” then take cash and leave the cards at home.
  • Plan the route.  Decide on specific locations. What stores you do want to shop it?
  • Bring it with you. If you are looking for something to go with something else, bring the piece  with you.  Or a least snap a photo.
  • Dress for shopping.  Look presentable but comfortable.  Wear easy to slip on and off tops and pants or skirts.  Defiantly wear flats.
  • Undergarments are your best friend.  Well-fitting undergarments such as nude seamless bras, thongs, will make your clothing choices look fantastic.
  • Give yourself plenty of time.  Leave the day open for shopping.

  • Go solo.  You can shop at your own pace.  Deciding what to purchase with out other peoples impression will help you “hone in on what you like.
  • Size doesn’t matter. Go for the fit of the garment.  If you don’t like the size, cut it out.  You aren’t wearing the tag you are wearing the dress.
  • Step out of your comfort zone. Try on things the might not be “you”.  Also, some clothes do not have hanger appeal.
  • Check yourself out in a three-way mirror.  Look at yourself from all angles. Know how you will look to the rest of the world.  
  • Find a good tailor.  One huge key in looking great in you garments is the right fit.
