Day 38

I have an obsession with Mad Men. Not only is the show excellent, but the costuming outstanding.  The show would not come to life like it does, without the wardrobe styling true to the late 50s, early 60s. I find the silhouettes of the women's clothing to be incredibly inspiring. So many women these days hide behind their clothes, in either an attempt to hide their body or follow some crazy fashion trend. You can never go wrong with clothing that fits you correctly. While I understand bold patterns are not for everyone, the silhouette on the dress I'm wearing in the picture below is a universally flattering style. 

Fashion Tip of the Day: Women need to stop expecting clothing to fit perfectly when they walk into a store. If it happens, great, but most likely it will be too tight or too lose in certain areas of the garment. A tailor is a gal's best friend. Whether it is taking in the waist of an otherwise great fitting pair of pants or shortening the hem on a dress to update it, tailoring clothing to fit your body correctly will make all the difference in how you feel while wearing the garment. Go through your closet and pull out anything that you have been avoiding wearing because it doesn't fit properly. If it is something that is too small, get rid of it. If it is something that seems out-dated assess if it can be tailored to update the look. Tailoring is a relatively inexpensive way to lengthen the life of your clothing.

  1. Nice to see you back! Really enjoy the pictures and would love to see more. How's the "no shopping" going? Painful yet?
