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.

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.

Dress for Success

To dress for success is often one of those phrases you hear or read  so often its become a cliché. Truth is Dressing for Business is an important part of getting ahead in your career.
Marketing experts, advertising execs, graphic designers, movies stars, authors and politicians are all very aware of the power of visual communication and the impact it has on our lives.

It can and does shape how we react to each other. It can also determine how we feel about ourselves.

So it would stand to reason that dressing the part is particularly important at work. The challenge is... Sometimes it's difficult to know exactly how to dress.

Get some clarity

Probably the first thing I would suggest to you is... get clear on what you want.  I think clarity is always an essential component to achieve success whatever that looks like.  In our ever-changing society it is difficult (particularly for women) to know what to wear.

The place to look is at the top of the food chain. What are those people wearing? Then find a way to incorporate your personal style with what you're seeing. Keep in mind you certainly don't want to overdress or under dress.

Power dressing can often mean wearing some form of suiting. I particularly love the newer cut suits for women. They really show off a woman’s best features, and the variety is never-ending. Purchase the very best you can afford and be sure it fits you well.

Most clothes are really not “ready to wear”. A suit is one of them. Don't wait until the last minute to find a suit. Plan ahead and be prepared to pay for alterations.

Tee shirts are one of the most versatile tops of all. Their simple lines lend themselves to a wide variety of styles.

 They come In a variety of colors. Choose a better quality tee if you are going to wear it with you suit. He lesser expensive ones are usually not professional looking and often the fabric is too transparent.

Dresses are also great for wearing under jackets.
