Before I reveal the number one mistake I see women make when shopping, I wanted to invite you to a fun little event next Wednesday! Wit & Whimsy will be celebrating the birthday of one of my all time favorite fashion icons…Audrey Hepburn! So mark your calendar for Wednesday, May 4th to stop by between 10 & 6--more details to come!
So what’s the number one mistake I see women make when shopping?
Most women only try on 1 to 3 things. If this is you, don't worry, you are not alone. Probably 95% of our clients do the exact same thing.
So if you hate shopping because you don’t have much success, I’m going to teach you how to shop like a stylist.
Last weekend I had a private styling appointment. And having done this before, I knew to take at least five times as much as I thought she might like. Why? Because even if she loved 100% of her options, it’s not all going to fit, or hit at the most flattering points, or be the right shade on her, and the list goes on and on.
So what can you take from this to set yourself up for success?
Stack the odds in your favor!
Take every single item you think you might possibly desire and try it on!
If something doesn’t pan out, it’s not as disappointing because you didn’t put all your eggs in one basket.
Plus, every shopping trip is a chance to see what you like and why, and every castoff is an opportunity to see what you don’t.
So next time you’re out shopping make it your mission to try on at least 5 pieces!
