What Not To Wear From Weddings To Work

Wedding Dress, Worn Once By Mistake



I was recently at a party and told the story of the best for sale ad I have ever read. For Sale: Wedding Dress Worn Once By Mistake. Recalling this creative, funny and telling advertisement, gave me the idea to ask if you ever wore something by mistake too?

I must admit, that I also once wore a wedding dress by mistake a few decades ago, but enough about me.

Sandy Weiner of Last first Date, forwarded me a great blog post titled What Not To Wear by Arielle Ford on her blog, The Soulmate Secret.

Ms. Ford shared that she received a great life lesson years ago about choosing to always look her best by only wearing clothes that made her look and feel great. She was once asked if she has A, B, and C clothes, with A being her favorite and what she looked and felt great in. Her advisor suggested she should only wear A clothes, so as to not just look good, but feel good.

What you choose to wear totally effects how you and others see yourself, let alone the major boost to ones’s self-esteem. My clients,  Stop Stressing About Dressing workshop and speaking presentation attendees, know that I always stress to be dressed in flattering and confidence boosting clothes, so they are prepared for any opportunity anywhere and at anytime.

You can meet your next best client, employer, friend, true love, you name it, when you least expect it. So why not look and feel as fantastic as possible?

About 6 years ago, I attended a women’s business luncheon because Jane Pollak was the speaker. I had heard her speak on  a tele-seminar for professional image consultants, and I just had to hear more of her business advice for entrepreneurs and hopefully get to meet her as well.

I found Jane before she was to speak, and introduced myself to her and naturally bought her book,  Soul Proprietor: 101 Lessons from a Lifestyle Entrepreneur.

Jane hired me about one month later as she loved what I was wearing, and I cannot even count the number of clients she has referred to me since our first wardrobe styling and shopping days.

Here is the jacket I wore, that to this day Jane still remembers. This was a photo shoot for my first website, back in 2006 when I was only providing makeup application services..

Please share below, what you may have worn by mistake, or better yet: what you wore when you met a person that changed your life for the better.

Dump The Heels and Wear Flats To Parties

Heels aren’t the only way to make your outfit look great.

flats to parties  flats to partiesHate or can’t wear heels? Then wear flats to parties and weddings.

According to an article in the New York Times Style section, flats with a touch of festive, make great alternatives.

Not that I want to pick a fight with the New York Times, but some women have to wear flats to parties. For many, they are the ONLY alternative to wearing heels that cause pain and imbalance.

What about having a stylish looking pair to slip into after having worn the heels that might have looked great when you walked in, but have now caused you to experience pain and discomfort that reminds one of childbirth or dental surgery. Sometimes both.

If heels are out of the question, get a pair of flats with some color or embellishment so you can dance the night away in.

Another tip would be to wear a dress or pants that are long enough to just be about an inch off the ground so that you seemingly float into the room as you will be so light on your feet being pain-free! Just do a Whoopi!

Whoopi Goldberg wore a ballgown to The Oscars with comfy combat boots, not torturous heels. I like her thinking.

Pssst…Overheard In The Dressing Room

“I spent a delicious half day shopping – in my own closet! – with Scarlet DeBease. She is a magician, transforming my well-known but not always well-worn clothes into amazing new outfits. She’s delightful to work with, clever, and practical. I highly recommend the therapeutic experience! It will give you a new ” look” on life.

So, I love thumbing through my outfits. Just so much fun thinking about what I’m going to wear that day. Have worn lots of them, and used your playful attitude to mix and match as well. The jacket I have that has leather trim has become a new favorite, after seeing how great it looks on me, with your additions to it.”  Liz VizzaExecutive Director Friends of the Public Garden
