Party Rocking at Your Best

Women%20S%20Party%20Dresses

It’s happened to us all before. You have an important party or event to attend and you simply don’t feel like going because you don’t feel you look your best. This usually is an issue when you’re meeting with people that haven’t seen you in some time or meeting someone where landing a good first impression is crucial. The experience itself can make any one selfconcious but add a bad haircut, an extra five pounds, or a lack of a stylish ensemble, and you have a recipe for a party pooper.

But there’s no need to avoid the party all together. We’ve come up with some great tips to turn around any to-be sour party moments.

1. Draw attention to your best features.

While you may be completely focused on your “bad” haircut, make others notice your beautiful statement earrings or smoky eye make up. Pin up shorter layers to help those features steal the show.

2. Wear comfortable clothes that fit your shape.

Yes, ideally we would  have lost those extra five pounds by the party date, but unfortunately it’s not always possible. Instead of squeezing into a tight dress that might make others realize you’ve put on a little weight and make you feel self conscious all night, wear something that fits to the point where you feel comfortable and able to breathe. Usually comfort can turn in to confidence and confidence translates to beauty in others’ eyes.

3. Accesorize, accesorize, accesorize!

Didn’t have time to run to the store for this season’s latest trend? Don’t stress. Run to your closet and find a classic look for the event your attending (something that you can’t pinpoint to a certain year). Now think of accesories that will help make the ensemble look more modern. If you don’t currently own any, run to favorite jewelry store already dressed and ask for a store associate to help you find something that will “pop”. As we all know, it’s much easier and quicker to shop for accesories than it is for a new outfit and being already dressed will help you see the “whole” picture.

We hope this blog has you soon feeling like a million bucks. Put these suggestions in to play and you’ll be ready to party in no time!

For the Shorties

Vintage Vogue is officially accepting kid’s apparel! Exciting? We think so!

Our mini me’s need to be a great or even better reflection of us so they deserve the best. But the best doesn’t always have to cost like the best.

After all, the way kids grow nowadays..they’ll wear those brand name sneakers three, maybe four times? We also pride ourselves in great parenting, showing them morals and values that will make them capable adults. Why not show them to love the earth and recycle? There’s also a great lesson in being frugal and not viewing gently worn clothing as the plague that should be avoided at all costs.

There’s no doubt about it.. the art of consigning and shopping consignment is a useful habit that will stay with your children for years to come! Come by to Vintage Vogue today and bring your little one too to start teaching them just one more of your many valuable life lessons.

Don’t just shop…shop resale/consignment..

Who is not trying to tighthen their belts? Financially that is…well maybe in your middriff too, wouldn’t hurt (but that’s another post).  Like many others, my hubby and I are watching our cash flow. One way to do this and I have done so for many years is shopping resale recommended by many financial experts. Well that’s why I decided to open a resale/consignment boutique, there were none that I enjoyed in the area (again thats a story for another post).  Early this week we had the bad news that clothing prices were going way up. That hurts! So now is the time to learn how to buy resale/consignment. Now why do I say “learn” how to buy resale/consignment? Well it’s because it’s a whole other way of shopping…you don’t just go in and find a particular shoe and ask the clerk the size you want and maybe the color you want, nope you can’t do that here. Here are some savvy tips that will help you like:

  1. Map out a route of the resale shops you want to visit.
  2. Shop frequently. The more often you visit, the better buys you’ll find.
  3. Look for the unlikely.
  4. Canvass every corner, poke through all sizes, explore all departments.
  5. When you see something that calls out to you, grab it! Chances are it won’t be there the next time you visit.

Now I don’t want all of you to start shopping resale/consignment all… but all the time…we still need for some of you to buy retail, so that we can purchase your clothes.  Here is a link on some other ways to save money on your clothes from MSN: http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Farticles.moneycentral.msn.com%2FInvesting%2FDispatch%2Fvideo.aspx%3Fcp-documentid%3D4213ec44-b6f4-4d57-8d93-6b241bf0c7e9%26from%3Dcp%255Eiv2_en-us_money_blogs-ss-MoneyTalks%26fg%3DMSNmoney-blogs&h=9489c
