Elaine’s Tips on How to Dress Your Best for Less
Finances are tight, and we are all thinking about ways to cut back on spending and make what we have last longer. Clothing is no exception. Purchasing all of the latest trends may not be an option for us this year. Instead, we must begin to focus on maximizing our current closet.
I was recently cleaning out a closet for one of my wonderful clients who had told me that she was not planning on shopping this spring. She just wanted help with using the clothing that she already had. We spent three hours making outfits out of her existing wardrobe, and we ended up creating over 35 outfits that were both cute and current (and it was not a huge closet)! We had so much fun putting together pieces of clothing that she had never thought to wear together. She felt like she had gone shopping in her own closet.
Every outfit was perfectly coordinated with accessories, handbags, shoes, and undergarments. After taking pictures of her new outfits, I made a wardrobe book for her so that she does not even have to think about what to wear in the morning. All she has to do is pick out a picture! I also made her a small and optional Spring/Summer shopping list with items that could be purchased for around $200.
“I have never felt better about my closet. The stress of getting dressed in the morning is gone, and I never worry about what to wear anymore. It was worth every penny!” – AK
