By now each of us has been effected in some way by the economic times. No matter what the Wall Street predicts dressing nice and looking good never takes the back seat. We just have to be smarter in what we buy and utilize what we already have in our closet. One of the things that I love most about owning Deborah Stilettos in New Hope, Pa is that we strive to make fashion affordable to everyone. Our store is modeled after the same hues that Channel made so famous in the to die for suit…cream and black. We want our clients to experience the luxury of the shopping experience without emptying their wallets doing so.
Ok…so about that closet. Have you been through it lately? If you are still holding onto sizes that you haven’t seen since high school than it is time to make some money on these relics. Take them out, clean them, press them and take some nice quality pictures and them list them on auction sites such as Ebay or sell them outright on Craig’s list. Once you have made yourself some money you will be able to invest it in some new finds. But first, we need to come to some conclusion as to what items you actually need.
The must haves of every woman’s closet is a black skirt and dress, black slacks and perhaps tan ones as well, a white blouse, a pair of jeans, a nice belt, and one go to piece for when you are feeling a little under your game. If you are lucky to have all of those items, it is time to add to the wardrobe. Maybe a red skirt, cream-colored sweater or leggings would be a nice addition. I would start off with basic colors and add color as finances allow.
The real trick of the success of any outfit is the accessories and the shoes. If you are in the beginning stages of closet building, find shoes that are comfortable and can be paired easily with other outfits. A pair of black pumps are a staple and the new shoe jewelry can easily be clipped on and off creating a different look with the same pair of heels. Again, as your bank account allows, add shoes that can go with many different looks but have a pair that are real dazzlers. Everyone needs one pair of Cinderella shoes in their closet. Just make sure you have an outfit to wear them with otherwise they will serve no purpose.
Jewelry is another outfit maker. Go from plain to perfectly coiffed by adding a pair of pearl stud earrings, a simple bracelet of charms perhaps or pearls, and a simple strand of pearls for your neck. Pearls are a great beginning point because they can be worn casually or dressy and really look wonderful on all body types.
So don’t procrastinate any further and tackle that closet. There’s a fabulous diva just waiting to come out.
