How To Shop Right..

Shopping is usually is a welcomed idea, but when you are on a Budget you begin to rethink. Here are a few tips on how to shop when you are on a Budget.


-Make A List: This is not a day of compulsive buying, no matter how tempting it is Try To Follow The List.

-Prices & Bargains: Its ok to Compare prices and there’s no shame in bargaining, you might just get lucky, High price doesn’t always mean quality, most times its your Bargaining Power.

-Prioritize: Know what you need most & get them first.
– If you are buying clothes, buy only what you’ll wear, don’t buy what you’ll decorate your closet with.

– Take only the amount of cash you are willing to spend no extras, so you don’t spend more than your budget.
-NOTE : When Buying Clothes, Buy More Classic Pieces Than Trendy Pieces.

The 1st Rule To Stay Winning.

We All Like To Win.. And To Stay Winning We Have To Master Certain Acts To Fit Into The Role We Play Daily.
Paying Attention To Details Is Very Important, Knowing That Our Appearance Can Either Make Or Mar Us.
You Need To Understand Your Body, Its Proportions & Love It.


“There Is Nothing More Rare, Nor More Beautiful, Than A Woman Being Unapologetically Herself; Comfortable In Her Perfect Imperfection. To Me, That Is The True Essence Of Beauty.”
―   Steve Maraboli

I totally agree with Steve, in as much as you think your breasts are small or your legs look funny and you have no bum, nothing beats a confident woman….. A woman who knows how to accentuate her best features and tone down or tune out the rest .

The first thing you have to understand is your body and you have to Love it with all its flaws, you also have to know that darker colors minimize. To highlight, use shiny or lighter colors. If you have a thick waist you’ll use a darker shade of belt.

So If you’re The TOP HEAVY BODY TYPE you cant wear Bright colored or sequin tops. Tops with: ruffles or pastel shades, thin spaghetti straps, delicate or complicated necklines and high necks are a NO NO. .
Strategic gathers under the breast to direct all eyes to your waist. Skirts should be fitted at the top and flaring at the hemline  to balance the top and the bottom, a cute tulip skirt works here. Avoid anything high waisted , not so skinny trousers balance out the breasts so you look less top heavy..

If You Have NO CURVES OR YOU HAVE AN ATHLETIC BODY SHAPE Draping dresses with patterns will create curves in all the right places, find a fitting size. Wear the right padded bra always. Never go bra-less under flimsy fabrics, no matter how small the breast are, it’s not classy.
A feminine chiffon dress will soften the shape. Halter tops create soft curves. Gathering and pleating on a shirt at the sleeves and waist creates curves. Skinny jeans will hug the skinny shapeless hips, giving them more definition. Choose delicate heels to highlight slim ankles. Accessorize, to keep you looking very stylish and feminine. Invest in some cute waist-defining belts to wear over shirts, cardigans, coats, etc.

And If You Are BOTTOM HEAVY, NO Clingy skirts fuller leg trousers and flared skirts hide bulges. Wear any vertical pattern on the bottom half to appear slim . Darker colors recede, so go dark on the bottom half of the body no shiny fabrics and wear lighter colors on top. To broaden shoulders and bring the attention up to the top half, wear big lapels, color and embellishment on the neckline, even a small shoulder pad will bring balance to a wider bottom.

Avoid side pockets, Super-slim jeans and pencil skirts are not a good choice.
A defined waist, full skirt and strapless cut dress will bring all the focus to the smaller upper half. High-waisted, belted skirts draw attention to a slimmer waist . Avoid Empire waist dresses that hide the waistline, an A-line skirt or wrap dress to accentuate the upper half. Get a full, pleated Knee-length skirt to conceal a wide hip. Full, wide-leg gauchos drape without clinging and are a fashionable choice. Try a boot-cut pant and jeans to create a straight, lean line. Pleats are dangerous and so are too-high waist lines.

Hence we all come indifferent shapes and sizes, we should learn to create balance, Don’t go with the crowd, Take time out to find out what suits you.
