Have you ever been shopping and find a particular blouse or jacket that you just love and have to have it? Then you get it home and see that you really have nothing to wear with it and so it becomes another dust collector! So, my impulse friend get a garbage bag and lay your troublesome items on your bed, we are going to do some reality clothing therapy! Put on your first item and stand in front of a mirror. What do you see you like, if anything and what do you see you hate? Now, this is a great lesson because you are creating your own personal sense of style, you know what you are beginning to like and dislike! For the things you like, hold on to them and for the things you detest throw them puppies in the Goodwill bag! If it has been over a year since you ever put that item on, it needs to go bah bye! Girlfriend, you are ready to start fresh and begin building your personal wardrobe!
These are the questions you need to ask yourself each time you go shopping and are standing in front of the mirror!
What do I like about this item?
How does this item look on me, does it flatter my figure or pinpoint my every flaw?
Does this color look good on me or does it make me look pale and pasty?
Lastly and most important question of all, What do I have to wear with this and does it fit in with the rest of my wardrobe?
Note: You need to think of at least two items in your closet that you can wear with your new purchase!!!
A good thing to note here is being truthful with yourself and knowing what you will wear and what you won’t! It is absolutely great to try new things, but a good rule of thumb is if you are not crazy about an item, put it back!
