The Sweater Story
Once upon a time, Paula from Fashion over Fifty bought a sweater at Marshall's. She thought it would be perfect for the summer--a short sleeved, linen, neutral cardigan for $19.99. There was just one problem: it was 2 sizes too big. Paula thought it was no big deal--it would be roomy.
It seemed that no matter how she styled this sweater for work, it always looked sloppy.Too bad she didn't listen to her own buying guidelines--the Four Fits. (you can see the guidelines here) She would not have made this mistake.
How was she able to remedy this problem? Paula decided to relegate this sweater to her more casual wear and whala! It seems to work now!
The moral of the story? BUY THINGS THAT FIT, PAULA!
