Shopping Tip #2
The biggest complaint I hear when I go shopping with a Client is that they like separate pieces, but don't know how to put them together to make a look. My Shopping Tip #1 was to notice that stores usually put coordinating pieces all on the same rack. The pants that you like will most likely have a top that goes perfectly right near it. Don't over think it. The stores are trying to help you.
My #2 shopping tip is to look at what the store has on display. Take the mannequins displayed at Bon Ton, for example. Like the blue sweater with leggings and boots look? I know I do. Luckily, directly behind the display, you will find all the pieces to complete this look. Just remember to always try everything on. It's much more time consuming to go back to the Mall a second time because you didn't try things on and they don't fit.
If you can't find what you're looking for or just have questions about the look, don't hesitate to ask an associate for help. I rarely meet someone that works in retail that doesn't have a passion for it. These people are working long nights and weekends on their feet so they can make you look fabulous. Or, if you still are feeling a bit overwhelmed by the process of shopping, call me. It's what I do.
