Preparing for Special Events

Here are some tips for preparing for special events that you can share with the younger Ladies in your family.

Please don't wait until the day of the event to put together an outfit. Start a week or more in advance and design/build/create an outfit that is a true reflection of who you are as a person. Try on EVERYTHING to make sure it all works together including shoes and jewelry. Make sure your clothes are clean and pressed. Check your shoes for dirt or scuff marks. Choose a smaller handbag with a shoulder strap or chain instead of lugging your large "my whole life is in this bag" handbag.  Pack a few things from your large handbag in a tote bag to stash in your trunk.  If you plan to wear a dress or skirt and you don't want to wear hose, start using a self tanning product made just for legs at least a week in advance.  Follow the instructions to the letter and wash your hands afterward.  Tuck a tissue under each arm to catch deodorant residue that often rubs off on your clothes. Google the location of the event and check out their website. If it's outdoors don't wear stiletto heels that will sink into the ground. If it's indoors take a wrap for the air conditioning.  Get your hair colored and cut a week before the event.  Do your mani/pedi in advance too.  Try out new make up a few days in advance to make sure you aren't allergic and to insure that the colors are right for you. Give yourself twice as much time to get ready as you normally do. That extra time is precious if you have to edit or change something about your outfit. Try not to run yourself ragged the day of the event.  If the day turns out to be hectic at least your outfit and accessories will be put together.   Relax, smile and have a great time!
