7 Shopping Tips All Women Should Know

You love to shop. I love to shop. They love to shop. Shopping is good. It is therapeutic, but are you shopping the right way? Your shopping experiences will change after reading this post. I promise.

  1. The biggest mistake women make when shopping is buying an outfit that does not flatter her frame. Don't just buy something because it is on sale or because your shopping buddy likes it. If it does not look good on you it is not for you.
  2. Never shop without a list: that will save you time and money. We tend to spend too much time and money in the mall when we don't know exactly what we are looking for. In addition to a list, you will need snacks and water, that will prevent you from starving yourself. Sometimes we spend so much time looking for what we want that we forget to eat, and we end up being bloated.
  3. Shop your weight and height: One of my biggest fashion turnoffs is women wearing clothes  that are too small for them. Capri pants are for tall and skinny women. If you are 5'3", stay away from them. They will only make you look shorter.
  4. Bring your own shoes: If you are shopping for an evening dress,  you shouldn't try it on with your flats on. If you already have the shoes you will wear with the dress, take them to the store with you.
  5. shop blowout sales early: When Macy's announces  they will have a HUGE sale on Wednesday, that means the sale already started on Tuesday. My sister gave me that tip. Don't wait until the end of the sale day to go shopping.
  6. Buy great shoes: Believe it or not, shoes can make or break your outfit. A great pair of shoes can even make a jumpsuit look good. 
  7. Buy quality clothes: By quality I mean great fabrics, hemlines, zippers, pockets. A great pair of jeans does not have to be expensive if the pockets are not buckled, the zippers don't get stuck and the hems are well sewn.
