SHOP TALK, CONTINUED...HOW I DO IT:
Another challenge I often hear about shopping on-line from clients is, "sure, I'll do it, but only from places where I already know my size." Ok fine, I get that, but if you want to do it right and without knowing before hand when it comes to fit/sizing (let's be honest, it changes all the time, plus, there's an entire chapter dedicated to this in my 30 Day Ultimate Closet Guide), it's simple. It's all timing.
What does she mean by 'timing?' I'll tell you.
When I shop on-line, I have a curated list waiting for me so I can click from my hit list of sites that won't charge me shipping either way (I'll give you my list so you don't have to create your own, contact me here and sign up for the mailing list).
I buy, they ship, I make my apartment in San Francisco my fitting room, I pack up what I don't love and schedule (complimentary; told you, I have a hit list of great sites) a courier service to pick up the no-go's and haul them back to the virtual shelves of the store, and boom, I'm done.
It's actually ridiculously simple. I think it's a mind game as in, it feels like a mountain when in fact, it's a mole hill, nay, an ant hill of effort needed. Ok, maybe in-between an ant and a mole. Whatever.
From there, I take the 'keepers' and find at least ten new ways to wear them using what I already own. Versatility is a key deciding factor (read: non-negotiable unless I'm getting married in it or accepting an Oscar in it) on whether I keep a product or return it.
There you have it boys (gentlemen). That's how I do it for myself and my clients.
