Shopping is fun, but it can sometimes be a frustrating experience, even for the most seasoned shoppers. Use these tips for stress-free shopping!
When you are shopping with the intention of buying, the first thing you need to do is focus on your task.
- Set aside time to shop like you would for any other task.
- Fill up the dressing room before you go in. Only get undressed once. It’s a numbers game – the more you try on, the more success you’ll have.
- Because there is no standardized sizing in ladies’ fashions, try on smaller and larger sizes than you normally wear. And, be sure to shop at stores like ours, where the sales clerks know their brands. We can tell you when you need to size up or down.
- Remember, it doesn’t cost anything to try things on! Don’t be afraid to try on a range of sizes and styles.
- Enlist the help of a sales clerk and give clear directions of what you are looking for. Don’t be afraid to be specific. Are you going to a wedding? Are you going on a cruise? Do you hate shorts? Tell us what you are looking for and we can help.
If you’re still struggling finding the right clothes, dive deeper:
- Are you shopping at the right stores?
- Does the shop have age appropriate fashions and clothes fit for your lifestyle? Just because your friends shop somewhere or it’s the trendy place to go, doesn’t mean it’s serving you. Take a moment to ask yourself if it’s really the right place for you to shop. Be honest!
- Are you being closed-minded? Be flexible. Open yourself up to try things that look interesting or catch your eye, even if it’s a departure from what you would normally wear. Step outside your comfort zone and prepare to be rewarded – you never know what you’ll fall in love with until you try it!
