Women almost always want to look good to boost their self confidence. As such, many don’t mind spending their hard-earned money to buy expensive skincare products, clothes and accessories that will make them look years younger than their actual age.
But if there’s one piece of clothing that every woman should own, the secret is in the jeans. The jeans today are not just meant for the young ones but even for the older Women.
So if you’re in your 40’s, 50’s or older, don’t just stick with the slacks and other loose pants but be bold enough to wear the jeans. You’ll be surprised at the attention you’ll get when you’re out.
Women just couldn’t get enough of shopping. Most consider it a therapeutic activity that can relieve their stress and depression or boredom.
When it comes to shopping for clothes, however, many still commit the same mistakes. The result? A too tight or loose fit. When this happens, the clothing ends up not being used at all or not being bought in the first place.
So how do you find the top or bottom that fits just right for you?
Have you ever gone to your closet to put together a trendy outfit, only to find that it was so jam packed you couldn’t locate a single thing? Somewhere between the formal you wore to your sorority outing and the pair of jeans you haven’t been able to squeeze into for years are outfits that scream fashionista, but you cannot find them. That happened to me this week, and it has pushed me into purge mode! As I prepare to purge, here are some tips I am going to use.
How to Decide What to Lose
The hardest part about this project is going to be choosing what to keep and what to purge. After all, trendy girls clothing and outfits can often be created with old pieces if you know what you are doing, so it’s not always obvious which pieces should be purged. So, I have set up some basic ground rules. First, if I haven’t worn it in a year, it gets tossed. Also, if it is too small or too big, I am purging it. Finally, if it is damaged beyond a simple button, it goes.
How to Decide What to Keep
Now, what will I keep? I am looking for pieces that have character or are obviously trendy. Unique fabrics, basic solids for layering and slacks and skirts that fit well have to stay. Since bold colors are in this year, bright pieces will be keepers. Also, sweaters and jackets will stay, unless they are way too outdated, because these can dress up a simple outfit quickly. Finally, I plan to keep a few dresses, preferably those in the hot maxi or above-the-knee lengths. Once I am done, I will make a list of the pieces of girls clothing I need to buy to complete my trendy wardrobe.
What to Do with the Purged Items
Next, I need a plan for my purged items. Instead of just tossing them, I’m going to donate them. I know you can just dump a bag at the local Salvation Army, but I want to go above and beyond. After all, it feels good to have the opportunity to help people who are in need. To make this happen, I plan to talk to some friends who are also purging, or who need a little push to purge, and organize a clothing drive. We will partner with a local charity organization that needs the clothes and uses them to help local families directly, so we can be certain our items are getting the most use. We will collect items from our friends and offer one big donation to the charity organization of our choice.
I am looking forward to being able to open my closet and clearly see the outfits available to wear, without having to dig through my old college sweatshirt and the t-shirt from my high school senior trip. This plan is exciting to me because not only will I have an easier time picking a trendy outfit, but I am also going to be able to help the community at the same time. This has turned a boring chore into something I am actually looking forward to doing.

The winter season is slowly creeping in and it’s time to take out your boots once again. For those planning to buy a pair of boots for the first time, it’s best to know kind to buy. You need to choose carefully because it’s very important that you’re comfortable wearing them and they can be worn with almost any of your outfit.
Many people think that a snow boot is the same as a winter boot. They are both referred to as boots and have the same goal of protecting your feet from the cold but each has different uses.
A snow boot is water-resistant, has a high side extending above the ankle and has a rubber sole. This is meant for use in snow hence should be sturdy enough to protect your feet. You can use this whether in just an inch of snow or even in deeper wet snow or mud.
