The Most Important Lesson When Buying Clothes!

"If one buys a piece because of the label or a particular store, and it is not becoming, that item is worth nothing.  It can be the most wonderful dress in the world (and marked down to the best price), but if it doesn't fit, it might as well become a mop-up cloth."
- Betty Halbreich, personal shopper for Bergdorf Goodman for over 40 years

Today on MIDLIFE BOULEVARD we are discussing the importance of FIT, perhaps the primary consideration when purchasing clothing.   I have given you eight considerations when making "fit" decisions.  So, join me today in 

Come back on Thursday to learn more about Betty Halbreich.

Have a happy Tuesday!

Note:  I featured Kathy Moses in today's pictures because in the past year and a half, I have only seen her in gorgeous garments which fit perfectly!  She represents the miracle working IOMA-PARIS SKINCARE!


  1. I just laid out some outfit ideas for our next trip and that's how I did it. One idea first.

  2. Great tip there ... looking forward to more info!

  3. So true - I used to be guilty of buying things just because I liked them. I've got much more conscious of fit as I've gotten older - it's so important!

  4. Great article, Pam. I like a loose fit, but not a sloppy one : >

  5. Fit is indeed important. In the past few years, I've engaged the services of a tailor where needed. No more too loose or too long for me! T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com
