How to Dress for Any Occasion

You have a first date on Friday with someone you have been crushing on for years.  Yikes!  “What am I going to wear?” You ask yourself.  Or maybe you have an interview next week for your ideal job. Yay! “But what should I wear?” You ponder again.  It can be difficult to figure out what to wear without doing a little research ahead of time.  Putting a little thought into it will make for a successful meeting and outcome.  So whether you are going on a date or heading to an interview, we suggest you ask these 4 important questions below.

1.  Who are you meeting with?  Try to figure out as many details as possible about the person you are meeting, as it pertains to the situation.  What do they do for work? What’s their position?  What do they like to do for fun?  How old are they? (Google is your friend.  Just try to refrain from being labeled as a “Google Stalker.”)

2.  What do you want your first impression to be?          You have 3 seconds to make an impression that is locked in. What do you want someone to know about you?  That you’re funny?  Confident?  Life of the party?  Sincere?

3.  Where are you meeting?  At a local coffee shop? The office?  A Mexican restaurant?

4.  What’s your intention?  What do you want to happen during and after your meeting?   Do you want to land the job?  Go on another date?

Now that you have all of these questions answered,  go into your closet and pick out that perfect outfit!

How to Make Your Bum Look Better in Jeans

A perky and perfectly round derriere.  Sound like something you would like to see in your jeans?  Yes?  We thought so. The size and pocket placement is the KEY to a great looking bum.  We’ll tell you what we mean below.

Pockets placed...

Towards the outside: makes you look hippy and bum wider,

Too low: makes your bum look saggy (or could be referred to as the “Grandma bum.”)

Pocket size is…

Too big: makes your bum look large and in charge. (Those pockets are not covering up anything.)

Too small: also makes your bum look large (tiny pockets do not equal tiny looking cheeks.)

**Our Secret Tip**

Make sure your pockets are medium in size and placed in the dead center of your bum cheeks.  If you still aren’t sure how your behind looks, pull a Kim Kardashian and take a picture!
