A Few Pointers

I came across this today on Pinterest and thought I would share. I can’t count the number of times I walk into a store take one look at the mannequin and say, “Yes! I am buying the whole look. The only thing that outfit is missing is me wearing it.”

The funky way the mannequin tied her scarf, or the way she layered three button downs and a jacket without looking like she is suffocating is when I start to become envious of her great taste and style. After putting capitalism to work, I am back home in front of the mirror trying to figure out what went wrong between the store and home. The lack of an in-store stylist, apparently.

Marina Dobreva, a former J.Crew stylist, gives some helpful tips for upping the style quotient. I will be making particularly good use out of her sleeve roll tip. Mannequin, schmannequin.

    These tips are fantastic! I only just discovered how to wear scarves in many different ways last year, and then this year I’ve been trying to work the ‘rolled up’ jeans with heels. I feel like I’ve been missing out on half my life.

    PS. Cracked up at your ‘putting capitalism to work’. Respect.
