Does this fit?

2 Feb


Have you ever had those moments where you’re out shopping, you find something that will look fantastic, you go to try it on and it has potential but just doesn’t fit right?

Well don’t even think to put that blouse, pant, or dress back on that rack! It’s amazing what a simple alteration can do for YOU!


Embarassingly enough, I’ve only really starting realizing now that this is THE secret to clothing! One thing that makes that pleated skirt, that too wide coat, and so on to make it look amazing on you is to alter it! I mean seriously if I had known this sooner my wardrobe would have been a lot more full than it is now. It’s actually quite unfortunate that no celebrity stylist expresses this key point to making an outfit look great on you! I was lucky enough to realize this from working as a personal shopping assistant, where literally all our clients alter everything to make it work for them!

I mean look at celebrities when they take something from the catwalk and alter it to their liking and it looks stunning on them at that special award show? Always wondered why it looked different from the runway? Well that’s why! To tailor a clothing piece is probably the easiest and best way to make an outfit look great for your body proportions.

So do not EVER get frustrated with something not looking the way you want it to because now you know an alteration may be the perfect solution for you!

I currently have a lace skirt that is in need of an alteration and once that’s done you’ll be seeing my post! Stay tuned 🙂

    Great tip! I’ve been thinking about it while shopping but then I end being to lazy haha so I just skip it, but the thing is, it is actually not expensive at all to have things altered. 🙂
