shopping tips
Shopping tip 101 Shopping tip One of the best ways to stay focused while shopping is to take a picture with you out of one of your favorite magazines. If you take an image with you, not only will it help you and a sales staff to pull together the look you want, but it will also help you stay focused on what you came to the store for in the first place as well as save money.
Source your magazines-meaning pull out the information that inspires you, put it in a binder and recycle the rest. I started doing this when I was in college and it has been a lot of fun. It also saves time and space.


t-shirt bra
I love womens shoes. I have no idea why I love them as much as I do. It is a true obsession.

All the girls in my family seemed to be afflicted with it, thought some have it more then others.

I thought for the longest it was some weird little oddity that only my family had.

Party Dresses Buying Tips

What to Wear to a Party

Picking out a dress for a party can really be really fun.

I really hope you get to play a bit and find a dress that you can have some fun in. Looking for clothing to celebrate in brings back those same feelings for me.

When I want to celebrate, I think of a night out on the town,

out with friends; eating great food; catching an entertaining play; perhaps listening to a live band; dancing and eating....I love to eat.

How do you pick out the perfect dress???

Well, it depends on what you're going to do, and, how many times you want to wear it. Do you go to a lot of parties?

Buying Tips

Can you afford to buy a stand-alone party dress, or does this special event dress have to serve other purposes?

Will it be work-related parties where you have to be a little more conservative then you would perhaps among family and friends?

As always, we will look at your body type and the different style dresses that will work best for your shape, and accentuate your style.

No matter your shape or style, there are party dresses out there with your name on them.

A quick note - don't limit yourself to whether or not the dress you're in love with has sleeves. Many coctail dresses are sleeveless. So commit early on to a shrug or wrap of some kind.
