fashion advice

I found these pages from a style tips page-a-day calendar I had a few years ago (it’s amazing the things you find during a move). I wish I could remember the name of it to give proper credit, but I haven’t been able to find it online. So, thanks to the unknown style advice writers. I think these are good reminders:

  • Special things need to be used, and now is a wonderful time to do it. What in your closet have you been saving that you could be enjoying right now?
  • We all need practical items, but the key is to make sure to select great-looking and flattering ones. If you wouldn’t want to run into an ex-lover or that terrible girl from your Russian Literature class while wearing a particular something, that’s a sure sign you could do better.
  • Buying well-made clothes means that you will have them longer. Can you imagine how many twelve-dollar T-shirts end up in a landfill every year? [I personally don’t spend more than $12 on a T-shirt, but I appreciate the sentiment.]
  • The feeling of having nothing to wear arises from a discrepancy between your perceptions of the image your clothing projects and the idealized image you’d like to project in a given situation. The goal then, is to maximize the correspondence between what you feel conveys the proper image and the items you actually own.
  • Where you spend your money matters. Do you feel comfortable with the business practices of the companies you patronize? Just a thought.
  • Now is the time to break out the pearls if you have them. There is something about winter light that makes them glow soft and warm on all skin tones.
  • Remember that fashionable body types come and go.
  • As the year draws to a close, ask yourself if there are pieces that you haven’t worn this season. If the answer is yes, why not give them away now and enjoy some newly found closet space?
