Do you ever walk into clothes shops and come out empty-handed?
Well, I hope that you do!
This means that you don't go in and buy clothes indiscriminately.
There is one thing that chic French women do before shopping.
When you know the French as I do, you will know that buying indiscriminately is not in the chic French women's psyche. So they make a list before shopping. They know that if they don't, the chances are that they will lose focus on the pieces they need. They may buy something that doesn't fit their requirements.
Being chic is knowing exactly what you need, what you want and what you love.
You don't buy anything less.
So, today, my tip for you is to make a list of what you need.
This way, you won't get swayed into buying items you will not need or that you will wear only once, or even never.
On this list for each item that you need and want, write the following:
- A description of the item
- Its style, design and cut
- Its colour
- All the elements that this item needs to have, in order to make it work for your body shape, height and size.
- Add anything else that you think is relevant and important
Once in your favourite boutiques, look for this particular item.
My advice for you now is:
If you cannot find the piece you need, want or love: simply walk away.
The mistake that many people make is to buy:
- Something that is less than what they wanted
- Something that is not quite right
When they do this, do you know what happens next?
They don't wear this item
They wear it but it makes them feel not quite right all day long.
They won't feel that excitement or joy that wearing the right clothes bring.
When you try something on in clothes shops, that piece should make you say:
WOW! I love this! I look gorgeous in this! Look at me!
On the other hand, if it gives you only a 'well, that will do, I suppose' feeling, put it back on the rail.
Simply walk away.
And this is my advice to you today.
