Shopping smart


First of all, thanks to those of you who support my fashion challenge.

Here are the details: I am taking a photo of my outfit every day for 365 days. I am not allowed to look exactly the same twice. Whether I am wearing my hair differently, or wearing different accessories. It is so hard.... and I am only on day 50! 

My biggest thing is shopping for cheap layering pieces and accessories. Buying different colored camisoles and scarves really helps me be creative. I spent a little more on the basics. I bought black dress pants, a white jacket. The cool thing is blazers are really popular right now so it makes it easier to dress for work and look professional without looking too stuffy or losing my sense of style. 

It is really interesting looking through the photos and seeing all the different outfits with what I have in my closet. 

Anyone can do this.  You just have to remember my instructions on how to organize your closet before you go shopping. Keep notes of what you might need in your wardrobe. Do you need a splash of color? Do you have a lack of dresses? Putting your clothes in like sections (pants together, shirts, etc) makes it much easier to get dressed in the morning. I am not as crazy as some people by color coordinating my closet, but if it works for you, more power to you! 

Invite one of your (honest) girlfriends over and make a girls' night out of it. FASHION SHOW TIME! Does this color work with these pants? Should I get rid of my prom dress? LOL Everyone is friends with someone like me who lives for this! 

Summer is great for shopping to add to your wardrobe. You have the 80% the sweaters from the winter, tanks and dresses that are really cheap, and the future items for fall coming in. Feel free to load up on pieces that you can layer in the fall. Tights, scarves, and blazers will be your friends when it gets cooler. 

I am so glad to be back! 
Let me know what fashion dilemma do you have so I can help!
