Betsy Johnson said: “Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves and, of course, each other. If girls dressed for boys they’d just walk around naked at all times.”
I may agree with Ms Johnson, but with the LDW Prom happening next weekend, finding the perfect dress should be #1 on your list, regardless of who you are dressing for. This is the one event, that isn’t clothing optional!
Perfect Planning Produces Perfect Results
It’s that time of year when it seems that every time you turn around, there’s another party, event or wedding you are asked to attend. For most events, the savvy lady can just pop into her closet and find something beautiful to wear. A few changes of accessories, and last year’s dress will do just fine. Then there are those invitations that are extraordinary, that only a new frock will do.
When The Party is Black Tie
To find the perfect dress for any special occasion, there are some details you should consider and plan for before you step foot into the mall. I don’t know about you gurls, but I get pretty excited when the invitation says Formal Attire, because I adore trying on gowns, just like any other gal.
Shopping without taking the time to look your best, is wasted time for me. Even the finest couture will look like a rag in bright florescent lights, if you don’t plan ahead.
Before You Head Out to Shop
Wearing a good foundation and stockings will give you a truer picture of how you will look in a particular piece of clothing.
Making sure you have your lipstick and tissues in your purse means you are a considerate shopper, and will make sure that your painted lips won’t sully what you try on. Shoes are another important choice for me, it’s comfortable flats for walking the departments and heels in a bag to be sure of the length, before I plunk my money down.
