One of my favorite TV shows to watch while I am working out is
"What Not To Wear"
I LOVE that show! I love watching Stacy and Clinton show women how to bring color, figure fitting, not looking like a bumb look to women and men all over the world. I don't have cable at my house, so this little show is like eye candy to me.
Sometimes I would day dream that they would come and raid my closet. Chuck my old stuff in the garbage can and throw me into the 360 degree mirror and ask "what were you thinking?"
Humbly I would tell them that do to my beliefs in not having debt or using a credit card, my shopping sprees are very limited. Alas, they would hand over their VISA with $5000. 00 and tell me that I had some shopping to do.
In all honesty, the new clothes would be nice. HOWEVER, the greatest value to me would be the advice they would give on what colors, styles, cuts that I need for my body type. You know the saying "give a man a fish, he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish, he will eat for a lifetime."
This is how I feel about clothing. "Find a cute article of clothing, look good for a day, teach a girl how to shop - nicely dressed for a life time."
I just want the ADVICE here!
One day, while browsing CJanes blogsite, I noticed her talking about her friend that made her a book on telling her what to wear, her best colors and cuts, etc etc.
Instantly, I knew that I found my small hope that maybe someone could help me on a price that I could afford. So, I got on the girls website, bought the book and filled out a questionnaire about me, my body shape and my lifestyle.
Yesterday, after a gloomy rainy day, a ray of sunshine hit me as I opened my mail box to see that my personalized fashion book had arrived!
Inside are explanations of my body type and what things to wear and what things not to wear. How to find balance with my pear shaped body and what colors would look best in me. She completely nailed that I am very traditional and respected my frugal ways by encouraging me to buy classic pieces. There is a list of what items I need in my closet and what styles to look for.
THIS BOOK IS GLORIOUS!! I love it and it is my own Stacy and Clinton in my purse. It is small enough to take with you when you shop because it is accordian style.
I am happy as a lark over here!! Now I just need to start a new budget of "Suzanne's wardrobe"and get Brian on board. Oy Vey! This could take a while!
