Something’s Happening…Did You Feel That
No, Listen! I’ll wait for you.
Yup, I felt it…I bet you did to! It’s that time of year, fall is coming and we need to start thinking what are we going to wear!
You see, something happens after July 4th. While we are enjoying Summer barbecues, beaches and HOT Summer days, retailers are putting their summer season clothes on sale.
It starts innocently enough, a few transitional pieces start showing up in stores and online. I’m sure your getting emails from your favorite stores that strategically show a brands inventory. By August 1st, it’s official! We are in full swing Back to School mode, or in my case, time to build your work wardrobe for a new season. Last week, I visited the Eileen Fisher Lab Store in Irvington. If you follow my features, you may have read my previous story on Eileen Fisher and you know that Irvington is the headquarters of the Eileen Fisher brand.
Dear Reader, Something is happening in my life and it’s effecting my my closet. Maybe it’s my age, maybe it’s the times we are living in, Maybe it’s HOW the world is changing. Maybe I am changing. Whatever it is…take heed…once you learn to LET THINGS GO…Change is Good! Um… Sometimes.
Take some advice. Start looking through your own closet. Take time to take some stock of what you own, what looks great on you and what doesn’t. A new season gives us the opportunity to do this.
If your looking to update your look or fill in pieces this is the time to get organized and really be honest with yourself.
Go ahead…go to your closet and try on EVERYTHING…create some new looks and outfits. You know that sweater you love from a few years back? It may not look that great anymore. Or, on the other hand, you may find something that needs to be replaced or matched up with something new.
Make sure you have the basics. This means a basic black dress, white shirts, skirts that are the right length and look flattering for your age and figure and tops and sweaters to get you into Indian Summer and cooler days.
I updated my closet with a NEW black suit that is modern and I can’t wait to wear it for work and events. Eileen Fisher offers modern polished looks that are classic.
