The Four Fits
Well, I'm back from fishing. Didn't catch any big ones, but it was sure relaxing! Hope all of you are enjoying the summer; it's so short here in NE--we must take advantage of it every second~
This post is in answer to Pam, over at over50feeling40. She asked her readers what our shopping guidelines were, and with some thought I came up with mine. I call them the "Four Fits":
1. The item must FIT in my closet. And I mean fit as in fill in a gap, or fill a need. I constantly shop my closet to determine how I might freshen my old clothes, or how I might incorporate something new into it. Any new item replaces and old--and out it goes. I try anyway.
2. The new item must FIT me physically. The dresses above are good examples of a good fit. This empire waist or fitted waist works so well for me, I usually always buy this style. It helps to know what fits YOU the best.
3. It must FIT my style and my personality. Course, that may change like the wind. And who knows; I may feel like being someone else for a day. I have a wide berth here!
4. It must FIT my budget. I use $50.00 as a gauge; under I am golden--over? Better think about it.
Is there a style that always works for you and it is a sure BUY?
