Make Your List and Check it Twice!

Last week, Big Daddy and I celebrated our 4th Anniversary.  It was a busy week, but we carved out time for dinner at Angus Barn, one of our faves.  As I frantically got dressed, I realized that I needed to spend some time on my very own wardrobe.  The shirt I wanted to wear was too long for the skirt I had picked out.  Uh-oh.  Then another shirt I wanted to wear was in the laundry.  Ugh! Ever had this happen?

This is when it’s time for THE LIST!

Chances are you’re in the throes of holiday gift-giving, checking off your shopping lists and testing your limits.  But there’s one list you probably haven’t spent much time, if any, on, and that’s you’re own personal wardrobe list.  With social occasions popping up left and right, it’s not too late to plan for your wardrobe to be all you want it to be.  It just takes a little planning!
1/ Take Stock of the Basics
Yesterday we had a client come into the boutique to purchase a fabulous pair of black leggings.  They’re a simple wardrobe building block that she’ll use for hundreds of outfits.  But she knew the ones she had were worn out and she didn’t want any surprises when she went to get dressed for a party.  Now she has the perfect pair for many outfits to come!

2/ Add Ons
What do you need to add to your wardrobe to take it to the next level?  A client was delighted to see how a fluffy vest made her red tunic more festive.  What can you add in to create a new look and add a little holiday sparkle? It could be a necklace, earrings, bracelet, a scarf, a vest, jacket, etc.  Think outside the box.

3/ Master Planner
I want to encourage you to take pictures of your outfits for different events.  You may want to overlap some outfits, but if you’re going to be with the same group of people that may not work without a few tweaks.  When you schedule your outfits for events, you can rest easily knowing that you’ll show up looking fabulous and feeling relaxed!

After going through these steps, what you need should be clear.  So make your list, check it twice to complete your wardrobe and dress to impress!
