1. Just because everybody's doing it, doesn't mean I should.
Style in an individual "thing"....our bodies, as well as, our comfort levels are different. So, what looks super cute on someone else may not necessarily work for me. Case in point, J Crew's minnies. Oh, how I want to like them on me. (I've tried them literally three or four times) But, everytime its the same result in the mirror...a big 'ole "I don't think so!"
Lesson learned: It's better to make a choice that works for me, rather than one that works for a friend.
2. Trust your instincts
Generally, I know immediately if I feel cuteness radiating from a particular outfit.
Lesson learned: If I have to question a look, it's probably not working.
3. It's best to stick with the classics
I can go back to J Crew looks from 2005 and they're still relevant today.
Lesson learned: It's best to stick with classic pieces, so twenty years later I'm not looking back saying, "Holey Moley, What was I thinking?"
Hopefully, the next time I walk down memory lane, I'll have more hits than misses!
