Maybe I’m in a state of denial but I refuse to think the economy is so bad that woman has to wear a dress that looks two sizes too big or a skirt that is not the right length for her. And maybe because I’d stay in rather than face either of the above scenarios doesn’t help either. There is a solution my fashion-seeking friends! And a relatively inexpensive one.
Alterations! If you think everyone else out there is wearing perfectly fitted clothing straight off the rack, you’re so sadly mislead. I will say that designer clothing is often better fitted than a Superstore $16 item, but still…it’s not a large percentage of the population, so don’t feel bad. Find a fabulous alterations shop and go crazy.
Those jeans that gape open in the back and give us an unsolicited peek….have them taken in. Not only cures the gap, but a tiny extra tightening pulls in the lower abdomen a bit. It’s like a girdle in your denim! Tops that look shaped more like an A than an hourglass? Find out if the waist can be brought in just a smidge. You might find a figure lurking under there!
Two of my faves…
Well Tailor near 143rd & Metcalf in Overland Park, KS. Closest to me and also raved about by my friends at Two Chic Blvd Boutique.
Blu Jeanius in Westwood, KS. A denim boutique with alterations store attached. Free alterations on purchases there!
