Whenever you go shopping, you should always keep in mind that the sales people have a job based on their ability to sell to you. However, if they have passion in what they are doing and truly want the best for their clients, they will do their best to sell you on their service and only sell you pieces that fit who you are and who you want to be.
Most people think that if they had just a little bit more money, their life would be so much better because it's so much easier to live the life you want when you have money. Although money can't buy happiness, everyday we make life choices based on money. Deciding on a career, what to eat, where to live and even who we will marry.
Many people who have fashion sense tend to focus on the latest trends and believe they have to adopt these pieces in order to be fashionable and stylish. A trend is simply what experts and hierarchies in the fashion world decide is popular each season. While every trend can work for most people when styled appropriately, a trend is generally not for everyone.
Women love to shop because its therapy in a way. Most of us get excited about finding new pieces that we fall in love with, which is a great thing.

What do you think of when you hear the word cheap? We often associate it with the price of an item but it should really be about the quality of the product.

When investing in your style, the first thing you should consider is a pair of shoes. If you think about it, your shoes really should be the most important item when it comes to your look. I don't mean your shoes should always be the focal point, I mean they should determine if you need to adjust your look.
There is a major misconception that fashion and style are one in the same when they are vastly different. Fashion is about wearing the latest trends while style is about wearing what identifies you. Fashion is what the world wants you to wear at any given time. Style is about who you are as an individual and what you want to accomplish in life. It involves everything from your color choices all the way to the brands you select.
Most people believe they possess "good taste" but what is good taste exactly? You would think that someone who has good taste has a sense of style; however, that is not necessarily the case. Someone who has style may not have good taste and someone who has good taste may not have a sense of style.
I believe everyone can wear any color they select, we just have to wear the right shade and if we do not go with the right shade, we simply have to style our look in a way that works. This is where a stylist is very helpful to have.
