Shopping Tips

I hear from my Personal Styling clients all the time about how frustrating shopping is, and I am always being asked for my best shopping tips. Today, I am letting you in on a few of them...

1) Just like they say you shouldn't go to the grocery store when you are hungry or without a list - never shop without a plan or when you are desperate. Shop with intention. When you know what you are looking for and stick to that, you buy pieces that will work for your wardrobe. Sure, it may be disappointing if you don't find what you are looking for on that specific day, but it's far less disappointing than making a purchase that ends up hanging in your wardrobe for eternity because you have nothing to go with it - what a waste!

2) Shop for your body shape. Not only will it ensure you always look fabulous in whatever you wear, it will save you unnecessary meltdowns in the change room when you're trying to fit into something your body just isn't suited for. If you aren't sure of your exact shape and how to best dress it, you may want to look into a Style & Body consult with a Personal Stylist/Image Consultant.

3) When it comes to saving money, shop off season. This is especially beneficial when it comes to pricier items and classic pieces that won't go out of style. For example, hit the shops now for a new swimsuit or strappy sandals. Shop for a new winter coat and boots in March/April.
