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.

The Indispensable Little Black Dress

by Charyee , Port Townsend, Wa.

Remember the opening scene of "Breakfast at Tiffany's" when Audrey Hepburn steps out of the cab with her coffee and stands in front of the Fifth Avenue storefront?

Audrey Hepburn was a fashion icon, and arguably her most powerful weapon was the little black dress (specifically Givenchy's). If you have ever longed for just a little bit of that early 1960s glamour, the LBD should be your starting place.

A LBD with a simple, classic line is a wardrobe piece you will be guaranteed to wear for years to come. You can add a dyed silk scarf and hat for a more Mediterranean feel, or keep it classic and conservative with pearls. Be daring with a bright necklace and a bold belt, or leave it bare and pair it with some fabulous shoes.

Just changing the accessories can make the same dress into a new outfit each time you wear it, which makes it especially handy to travel with. It can also be used to go from workplace-chic during the day to date night sexy by removing a jacket and adding a jazzy necklace.

A sleeveless version like Audrey's can be worn for different occasions in all seasons, while those fonder of change can opt for sleeves in winter and keep the sleeveless version for summer.

Basic Fashion Tips

  1. Never skimp on the time or money it takes to find the perfect LBD It will be in and out of your closet a lot so it needs to be able to hold up.
  2. If you find two that are perfect and that are distinctly different get them both.
  3. The sheath or a-line silhouettes are probably the two classic style dresses that can go from day to evening and casual to dressing the easiest. 
  4. Consider a vintage dress. Some of the absolute coolest dresses I’ve ever owned I purchased from a second-hand shop or an antique store. The fabrics used were wonderful and the designs were very flattering. Just be sure to look closely to make sure your potential new dress is in good shape
