“We got so much done in 2 hours, way more than I could

have done on my own!” – LP


We picked up novelty shirts and jackets, cozy sweaters for fall, belts, and accessories!  Would show you some things, but I’ve found that most of Uniquely Savvy’s clients like to keep their look unique….hope you can understand!



Uniquely Savvy Shopping Tips:


As always, my best recommendation is that you maximize your shopping efforts by  knowing what looks good on you in terms of colors and silhouettes BEFORE you ever step foot into a store…This way you’re educated and can make stronger buying decisions rather than picking up things you really don’t love – or look or feel fabulous in!  Looking for a few other quick tips, read below…


1.  Create a shopping strategy ahead of time:

What’s missing in your wardrobe?  What are the few pieces that if you had them in your closet, you would save a lot of time, energy, and frustration when getting dressed. Determine which categories of clothing are your priorities, create a prioritized shopping list, and stay focused.   Shop for your #1 priorities first!


2.  Predetermine a Budget:

How much will you spend?   Determining this ahead a time will give you the freedom to say “No, thanks” when pieces are shown to you outside of your budget.  You will also guard yourself against overspending; therefore have a more positive shopping experience to build on. Remember, to keep cost down, invest in quality classic pieces you’ll wear for years to come and choose more “cheap ‘n cheery” pieces to add flavorful splash…..cheap meaning inexpensive that is!


3.  Shop during slower retail times of the day or week

Maximize the sales associate help you may be looking for.  I’ve found that typically Mondays and Thursdays are the slowest days of the week.  The weekends will eat up your time waiting for dressing rooms and may slow down the overall efficiency of your hunting & gathering process!
