You bought that gorgeous dress that was calling your name and took it home. Now you realize you don’t have the right shoes or topper. Please don’t beat yourself up because we have all done it.

  • Stock your closet with classic, timeless pieces. If you aren’t sure what qualfies as classic, consider talking to a personal stylist.
  • Ask yourself what purpose does this piece serve in my closet. If you can’t answer the question easily you probably dont need it.
  • Scout your closet for the number of ways you can pair this with other items in your closet. If you can’t find any return it.
  • Incorporate trends cautiously because they come, go and sometimes never return!
  • Take a friend with your or a personal shopper to check your choices.
  • Before you buy do you have all the shoes, accessories and sweater or jacket?

Clothes that Move between Seasons are Versatile

I love adaptable clothes that can be worn in multiple seasons. Because I live in California, I find this is pretty easy to do with dresses and skirts. In many cases, I swap bare legs for opaque stockings. I trade boots, booties, or tennies for open-toe sandals and scarves for summer necklaces. I layer up with tees, blouses, pull-over sweaters, and jackets. Swap out lightweight summer sweaters for warmer sweaters.
