In this season of the tax return, I asked my husband for some money to go on a "shopping spree" to buy some new clothes that fit me properly. (How much do you have to have for it to be termed a "spree?") He gave me the go-ahead. I'm excited to find some new shirts that are trendy and casual and that fit me properly.
So in the style of TLC's What Not to Wear, I'm asking you, my loyal readers, to be my Clinton and Stacy--guide me in the ways of fashion, and make me over! Let me give you the short and sweet of this fashion victim:
Please, educate me. Tell me what to wear and where to shop. Tell me how to look nice even when I stay home all day. What are the staples I need in order to update my wardrobe? What hair and cosmetic products do I need in order to look nice and feel good with minimal time investment?
"Our latest cry for help is a new mother of two--her wardrobe consists of oversized maternity clothes that didn't quite make it to storage, and too-small t-shirts that don't fit her now womanly frame. Compliment Jenny's wrong-sized shirts with frumpy sweat pants and shapeless jeans. Since full-time motherhood, she's practically abandoned the use of cosmetics, wears a pony-tail 6 days out of 7, and only wears tennis shoes. Let's teach her what NOT to wear!"
Give me your fashion tips. I'm going shopping in about two weeks--whoever gives me the fashion tip I find the most useful will receive a set of 10 hand-stamped cards with your choice of theme or greeting. Let the intervention begin!
