Dear Fashion Feline, I love new clothes, but they often sit in my closet for ages. How can I get them in circulation right away? --Dierdre
It can take a little work to figure out what shoe, tight, jewelry, scarf will go with a new dress or what bottom works best with a new top. Two suggestions:
1) don't try to wear two new items together right away--instead, pair the new item with something tried and true.
2) try wearing the item first for a low-stakes excursion like casual Friday or weekend trips to the pet food store--purrr. Try out your jewelry options, different shoes, a cardigan--find out what works. You'll feel ready to wear the item for main events after this trial period. -- >^..^< Meow
