In order to be well dressed at a reasonable cost, you must carefully plan your whole wardrobe before purchasing any garment so that the whole outfit will be complete, appropriate, and harmonious. When you decide what you need, but carefully and slowly. Take your time to pick out what you want to that you will get your money value. Too many persons buy on the spur of the moment. They attend the bargain counter and squander their money on things they do not need. Nevertheless, in many cases extraordinary good values may be found at pre-inventory or end-of-end sales, because the shopkeeper does not wish to carry over the stock. After the wardrobe is complete, constant care is necessary to keep the garments looking well. It is said that he Americans are recognized abroad by their run down heels. To be well dressed one must always be neat and clean.
