What to Wear on Your Next Shopping Trip That’ll Save you Time and Money

Approach Your Next Shopping Trip Like a Pro.

We are shopping pros. When we go on a shopping trip (with a client or with friends) we shop with purpose and we don’t like to waste time. We’re not like the Whirling Dervish or anything like that, but we’re on a mission when we go on a shopping trip.  We know where to go, and have in mind what to get.  We try to know every clean bathroom in every shopping spot between here and Timbuktu and we’ve even mastered eating and shopping at the same time.  Like we said, we’re pros.  We have to be efficient to make the most out of our time with our clients.  So, since time is of the essence here,  we’ll cut right to the chase. When you shop you have to wear an outfit that’ll SAVE YOU TIME and won’t slow you down.

Wear the Right Shopping Outfit.

You might think, who cares? Why does it even matter? But, it does. Remember the last time you went shopping and wore something that was a pain in the butt to take off? That day you spent half your time buttoning and unbuttoning and lacing up boots, or shoes to just say, the heck with it. I’ll just buy it now, and try it on at home to then realize you’ve wasted the time schlepping it back to the store because it didn’t fit. Or instead, you totally wasted the money because you were too lazy to take it back, and now it’s sitting in your closet with the tags on it.  And all of this because you were wearing an outfit that was a headache to shop in. Next time, try a stylist approved outfit, one that’s comfortable, easy on, and easy off. But that looks put together, but not sloppy. It’s a tall order but it’s do-able. And, in the end, it’ll save you both time and money.

What to wear on your next shopping trip:

Have you heard that saying “shopping is my cardio”? Well, the same way there’s a right and wrong way to be dressed to get the maximum benefit from your yoga or spin class, there’s also a right way to dress for maximum efficiency in a shopping trip.

All outfits have key elements and a shopping outfit is no different. We’re breaking it down (right down to the skivvies actually) as to what you need to wear the next time you’re out for a day of retail therapy…

The ONE Jean That Looks Good ON Everyone

The Jean You Need This Year
Every once in awhile we find something that we are completely obsessing over that ends up not just in our closets, but in many of our clients closets too. That means that the item is so good that it falls under the category of fitting into everyone’s style statement, whether classic, boho, funky, rocker, artsy, you name it. One of those things that is just SO GOOD that we have to share it with you. So ready for it…The Madewell Cali Jean. You guys, THEY. ARE. SO. GOOD and we’ll tell you why.

We don’t really like jean shopping for ourselves.  It’s not as bad as bathing suit shopping, but it’s a close second. We hate when they are too tight, or too loose.  If the rise is too low you get muffin top,  and if the rise is too high you can’t breath.  If the pocket placement isn’t just right the tush can end up looking like a hippo’s rear end, or flat as a pancake. Say good bye to all of these things with the Cali. 

The Best Jean Ever
This sounds like an advertisement, but we swear on our life, it isn’t. In fact, we are pretty sure Madewell has no idea who we are… We’re sharing because that’s what we do. We’re match makers – between clothes and people – and this pair of jeans, so far, has fit EVERYONE!! 

Big/ little, young/ old, tall/short – this jean is working for all…
