It’s that time of year when you start going into the blahhs. It’s the perfect time to take stock of your wardrobe and plot your style for 2013. One of my talented web gurus, Denny, recommended to me that I start pinning on Pinterest. At first I was reluctant but then I made a board for a private client and saw that it’s really the best way to create a fashion/mood board for my clients. I can show them pieces and outfits that I think would work for their new style, and we can both add comments and see how it all fits together. So obviously I’m hooked and I think you too should make a Pinterest board for the new year. The easy part is that almost anything you see online is “pinnable” – and it’s so easy to do.
Step 1: brainstorm words you want to embody your style.
Step 2: Take stock in your closet and make a list of missing items
Step 3: Start with inspiring items like flowers, or colors and then
Step 4: Search specifically on big stores for items you need. For example teal peplum dress, a line brown skirt, bronze pumps. Check out Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Zappos and Saks, and also pepper in smaller boutique online shops.
(If you have a birthday or holiday coming up you can easily send your board to loved one to make a hint at what they can buy for you)
