WHERE TO SHOP
Confused about where to shop for your back-to-school & fall wardrobe? Look carefully around your town, and you’ll notice that every apparel store is distinctive, that each specializes, in varying degrees, in fashions that reflect a particular mood or feeling. Therefore, you should get to know each and every department, retail store & specialty shop in your community. In this way, you will narrow down your places to shop to those stores and departments that come closest to matching your individual fashion personality. Of course, if you’re feeling daring, go explore new shops. Also, get to know the latest style of the present season and you’ll see that most shops have started displaying their “seasonal catches” and putting the last season’s styles in the back of the store. Depending on how trendy the store is, this can be a great place to find some classic pieces on sales. Remember to keep your styles ages appropriate.

ACCESSORIES GUIDE
You can’t be a wardrobe “fashionista” without the accessories to go with it. Here are some tips to help you look put it all together from tips to toes:

o Don’t wear jeans with pumps.
o Experiment with a variety of belts.
o Keep the focus on YOU, not your accessories. A little goes a long way.
o Start your accessories wardrobe with the basics: A nice handbag, a few necklaces, several rings and bracelets, a watch, and some sunglasses. To build your collection, add pieces that fit your personality and the trends.
o Use small handbags for evenings or other social gatherings. You don’t need to lug all of your stuff around.
o Your shoes and handbag should coordinate, but they don’t have to be a perfect match.
o Stay true to the style you want to achieve. Black leather cuffs will ruin an otherwise preppy look, for example.
o If you don’t love, don’t wear it. Better yet, don’t buy it in the first place!

ALL ABOUT MASCARA
Many models have been quoted as saying if they could only use one makeup item, mascara would be it! Proper mascara application brightens the eyes and gives them a lift. This gives the eyes their expressiveness.

QUICK TIP
It is very important to find a few minutes every day to be alone and not distracted by your cell phone or TV. Find a quiet space, close your eyes, and relax your mind for at least 10-15 minutes.
