Tip #117: DSW Discount + Discount + Free Shipping + 7% Cash Back

I had a $20 off $49 purchase offer from DSW in my In Box.... apparently they "missed me".  I like being "missed"... it equals savings :)  So, I went shopping....

Of course, I went to first to get my 7% cash back and see what OTHER coupons were available because STACKS coupon codes!!

Look at how I got 2 pair of boots for $52.37 + 7% cash back ($2.75) or 2 pair of boots for less than $50 by stacking 3 coupon codes and a certificate.

Tip #116: Neon is BACK

Growing up in the 80's, I wore neon.  Yes, I admit it.  Looking back at pictures, I swore I would never wear it again....

Yet - here it is...  thankfully, neon as 'a pop of color' is in... NOT neon from head-to-toe :)  (thanks to the Mom at MOPS in Ashburn for pointing out this new trend!!)

Pair neon accessories with colorful print dresses in saturated colors (sunny yellow, bright blue, for example).  These shades compliment, but don't compete with, neons.  Or brighten up a white shirt with a neon pink clutch.

BEWARE... a little bright goes a long way!!! Don't wear more than 2 (MAX) neon colors together.  More than 2 and you should go back to the 80's.

Tip #115: Defining the term 'Body Type'

If you like your body shape, congratulations - you are in the minority :) 
Whether you like your body or not, if you understand what your current shape and proportions are and know a few style guidelines for your shape you are well on your way to looking your best.
So, what does 'Body Type' mean?  It is a combination of many factors...
  • Your Vertical Body Shape
  • Your Horizontal Body Shape
  • Your Face Shape
  • Your Weight
  • Your Height
  • Your Bone structure
  • Your shoulder size and angle
  • Your neck length and circumference
  • Your Age
  • Any figure flaws such as a large bottom, a large stomach, or saddle bags
I know... sounds complicated.  God made everyone wonderfully unique. Remember - there are no 2 snowflakes the same, but each one is beautiful.
P.S. If you live in the Northern Virginia area, my services include Style Assessments (Body Typing + Color Analysis) for $30.  You take away a personal Color Book and a personal What to Wear (and Not) List.
