Exactly. I shop at Lane Bryant, but in the past, I've gone with my daughter. She's nineteen, and has an awesome fashion sense. Unfortunately, she's moved to Hawaii, so she won't be able to join me for such shopping trips. Shortly, I'll be just another person living alone. I have answers for most of the situations I'll face, but since I have such a terrible fashion sense, I'm trying to plan for that upcoming eventuality. I do prefer pants outfits to dresses, so that does simplify some things, but I want to make certain I put together an outfit that's professional and appealing. -----Original Message----- From: bksvol-discuss-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:bksvol-discuss-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Elizabeth and Burton Sent: Sunday, December 03, 2006 8:55 PM To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: OT: Women's Fashion The thing about going the Ann Taylor loft or buying Liz Clayborne stuff the price is a bit high so you try for sales. The quality is great and those brands usually make clothes which are stylish for years. So you can buy a few things and really change your wardrobe. An easy way to add color and accent to a wardrobe is to wear jewelry. I have a few very nice pieces I wear for special occasions and several pieces which look nice but are far less valuable which I wear everyday. Literally, I wear necklaces most of the time when I go out and it adds lots of interest to my outfits. Buying silk teeshirts (short sleeved blouses) in a variety of bright colors to wear with black pants and under otherwise more neutral suits works well. If you have a suit of a particular color, find great color combinations for a blouse or two to go with it and buy those hangers you can hang a skirt, blouse and suit jacket on and then keep them all together. Look out for Nordstrum's catalogs and Macies in January when sales hit.
