Hello and welcome to the Weekend Update!
And don’t forget to grab the SUMMER STYLE SYSTEM…. And speaking for myself – I designed the program and create all the outfit prompts – and even I rely on it each day to #justgetdressed – in 5 minutes flat. It keeps me from wearing the same thing every day, or staying in my “workout” clothes all day long.
1. Tipsy Tuesday – Common Sense Sales Shopping Pep Talk/Lecture;)
The summer sales are out in full force, so this is a great time to talk about sales shopping…and shopping in general.
This week I talked about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (still going on and open to cardholders now, and to the public TOMORROW, 7/17. Have you shopped it? Did you have any luck? I’m waiting for my order to arrive and will try everything critically and decide what to keep. I am trying to keep up with sell outs and new additions, but trust me, it ain’t easy.
To help you navigate this somewhat overwhelming annual sale, I created a catalog with my personal picks.
Find it here, and bookmark it to refer back. Items do sometimes come back in stock due to returns or re-stocks – (especially Nordstrom house brands).
This sale creates A LOT of internet hype because it’s on hot, NEW, FALL items…..But, keep your wits about you and be prepared for items to sell out – and remember, that’s NOT the end of the world;)
Focus on quality items that you need or really, really want and have several ways/places to wear them.
Just because it’s popular or “hot” doesn’t mean we need it -right??
My advice is to spend some time in your closet before the sale starts and look for glaring “holes” in your wardrobe basics…
Make a list of key pieces that are worn out, dated, and need replacing or refreshing.
My favorite categories include white tees, undies, bras, denim, boots, jackets/outerwear, and sneakers. Boring? Yes. Important? Indeed.
Use the wishlist feature now to combat impulsive, willy-nilly shopping when your date comes around.
Thanks for being here today, and have a great week ahead….
Get some stuff done, do something fun, and #justgetdressed.
