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.

Wool is incredibly durable. It is processed in quite a few ways. Along with cotton, it is the most used of the natural fibers today.

A cashmere wrap, a marino sweater, a gabardine suit and a camel hair coat all come from different animals and processed differently.

So when you're out shopping there are five Fashion  Tips to keep in mind.
  1. What is the fabric composition. Look at the label and make sure it is clearly marked and you understand it. 
  2. Does it look well made. Top stitching should be even. lining shouldn't have any puckering, no loose threads, Etc...
  3. Does it drape or hang well? Do you like the weight of the fabric,does it flow nicely on you when you move?
  4. Does it have a nice hand? It should feel good against your body. It should'nt feel itchy. Cashmere and Vicuna make are some of the softest fabrics known to man.
  5. Will it travel well?

Thomas Burberry invented Gabardine. It is a tightly woven tough twill fabric. Traditionally made of worsted wool, gabardine is smooth on one side and has a diagonal pattern on the other.  Gabardine is an excellent fabric for structured clothing such as suiting, slacks, jackets and coats.
