Well, I’m still at it! Trying to sort through, and to update, my closet! I can’t believe it is so hard! I guess if it’s this hard for me, it’s hard for you too!?

I think maybe the biggest issue that I have is that I’m wanting to wear different kinds of clothes this year than last…but I’m not exactly sure of WHAT?? So I have been shopping in different places….and I have to admit it’s not as easy as it sounds….and I have made some mistakes! I guess my new motto will be “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!”

Try hard to experiment with some new looks….but try to shop earlier in the season….not so much at the end of the season when everything is on SALE!

The first thing I learned…I suppose I’m entitled to make some mistakes! It seems simple enough…but not always as easy as it sounds. Because I’m shopping at different places I have had some trouble finding the right size…vanity sizing!!! Yikes! So I need to order a couple of sizes and then return what doesn’t work. It’s kind of a hassle….but that’s what I am having to do at the moment. I figure it’s better to be safe than sorry.

And then the looks themselves….probably a bit more casual than I am used to. So because of that, I have been looking for new sources of different looks. I haven’t found the perfect thing just yet…but of course I will share when I can!

Don’t underestimate the power of a great dress!

It’s easier to get dressed when you wear a dress! I like to wear a dress sometimes, even if I’m not going out and about. As long as it is comfortable enough to wear all day long!!

Probably the most important thing to remember is to buy the WHOLE LOOK at once! It’s so important, because ultimately it’s what completes your desired look. Your new clothes should be comfortable, and/or FIT right now! Make yourself resist the sticker shock….and buy the whole look! Not just the pants….or the blouse…..but the whole thing! You don’t always have to wear them together….but everything will be better if you have the complete look in your closet!

Don’t these women look great!?

I am finding that there is a big difference between Fall Looks in September, when even in Wisconsin it can be really WARM! And by November (Can you believe it is almost Thanksgiving?) I want my sweaters to be warmer, and I really need to have a jacket or a coat on most days. We even have some snow!

What’s a girl to do??? Go Shopping and have some things, a few things, in your closet that will take you to the places you go to!
