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.

White Shirt

The white shirts is versatile. In fact is is one of the most versitile pieces of clothing you can own and I consider them a must for any women's wardrobe no matter her size or body type.

Like our beloved little black dress, you can dress them way up with a wonderful strand of pearls or an outrageous necklace from John Galliano. Hugo Boss, Theory, or Donna Karen.

I love a crisp shirt, particularly one that stays looking that way the whole day.

A basic shirt by Foxcroft is an excellent choice. They are well made and you don't have to iron them.

Just wash, dry and hang them up. Since I hate to iron, Foxcroft is really a great alternative. One thing to keep in mind is that some white shirts are too see-thru, so find one that isn’t and have darts put in it.

Too much fabric around the middle can make you look heavy. If you have a few extra pounds on you, like I do sometimes, or if you are average to slim, too much fabric can make you look like you have a pin head. Either is unattractive.

Shirts are an excellent choice for their versatility. They can be worn alone or over a camisole, tank or t-shirt. They can also be worn as a light jacket in warm weather.

How to find the Perfect Fit

When I fit my clients in shirts there are three areas that I look for.

I look at the fit at the bust line, the shoulders, and in sleeve length.

Women who are large busted often have to go up a size or more just to get the bust area to fit, particularly if it's a fitted shirt.

Shoulder seams need to land at the edge or pivot spot of your shoulder.

Long sleeves should be long enough to reach the first knuckle of your thumb or just above it. ¾ sleeves should land just past the elbows or a little more.

The body of the shirt should land at the top of your hipbone where you can leave it on the outside. At the same time, it should be long enough that you can tuck it in if you choose.

My idea of the perfect year-round shirt is a pre-washed, natural fiber (cotton) with 1-5% Lycra in it. That little bit of Lycra gives it some stretch, making it more comfortable.

Also choose a heavy enough fabric that’s not see through, so you don't have to wear a camisole,but light enough so it's cool in warmer weather.
