shopping 101: before hitting the mall

so you’ve decided to buy some new gear for work, you’ve got your list, and your budget (and hopefully, you’ve received your emails about deals to be had).  

Here are a few other things to consider before embarking on your shopping mission:  

  • start on a full stomach – eat a good breakfast beforehand
  • start early to avoid the afternoon crowds (except for shoe shopping, which is best done later in the day or if you don’t mind crowds)
  • stay hydrated – bring a bottle of water
  • wear comfy footwear – (no, not running shoes – opt for ballet flats)
  • light easy-to-pull-on-off clothing (you want to be able to try things without hassle. plus all that shopping will make you sweaty)
  • be patient – Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither will your wardrobe be. so relax, take your time, and when in doubt or frustrated, ask for help.
