Like any other kind of shopping, a checklist will help to keep you on target.
Have you seen the movie “The Blind Side”? It’s the story of Leigh Anne Tuohy, a wealthy woman who becomes a legal guardian to a young man from the projects who goes by the moniker ‘Big Mike’. It’s based on a true story and if you haven’t seen it, it’s worth a viewing. There is a scene in the movie where Leigh Anne takes Mike to a shop to find some new clothes—a Big and Tall store because Mike is… well, big and tall. She says to him: “Well, one thing I know about shopping is that if you don’t absolutely love it in the store, you won’t wear it. The store is, where you like it best. So before you choose something, think of yourself wearing it and say to yourself: Is this me?” Good advice.
When you’re going clothes shopping, it’s best if you go with a goal in mind. Why? Because otherwise, the distractions are many and the rabbit holes are everywhere. If you’re out shopping for a new dress for a special event, stay focused. Don’t go into the Apple store to have a ‘quick peek’ at the new rose gold phone. Don’t run into the Coach store, to see ‘what’s new’.

Here’s reasons why black works so well:
A wrap dress is one of the most iconic fashion styles of all time. Although well-embedded into the American designer sportswear tradition, the design has become synonymous with Diane Von Furstenburg. Her choice in elastic, synthetic fabrics distinguished her clothing line from other wrap dresses from previous decades.
The first iteration of the wrap dress was the “taxi dress” by Charles James in the 1930s. However, it was Furstenburg’s design that dominated the fashion scene in the 1970s and continues to be a staple in women’s wardrobes today. Her wrap dress traditionally consists of long sleeves, a V neckline, and a knee-length skirt. It’s a classic piece that has crossed over from being a trend to becoming a necessity.
