Dress For Shopping Success - Here are few tips and tricks that can help make your next shopping trip more successful.

  • Wear clothes that are easy to take on and off.
  • Avoid shirts with a lot of buttons. This will save you time and frustration. Your shirts should have a loose neckline. This will keep your hair from getting messy and keep your makeup from getting on your collar.
  • If you plan a big shopping day, don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes. Flats that are easy to slip on and off are a good choice.
  • If you are planning on dress shopping, you might want to bring your favorite black heels.
  • Wear a cross body purse to keep your hands free.
  • Don't wear jewelry. It can get snagged on clothing when you try on clothes. If you do need a few accessories, try stud earrings and a scarf.

Before your next shopping trip, I want you to think about the last time you wore something that really looked good on you. I mean, this outfit fit perfectly and was just your style. You felt more confident and maybe even a little sexy.

When you go shopping, I want you to remember how that felt and remember that it is better to have a few items that make you look your best then a whole closet full of clothes that are only so-so. This is the time to find clothes that you LOVE.

  • Bring a true friend. Pick someone who will tell you when you look fabulous or if those jean make your butt look big.
  • Don't go shopping when you are feeling depressed, hungry or in a rush. You especially don't want to go shopping when you are feeling bloated.
