It’s Winter?!

Its Winter!

It’s Winter? What???  Where did 2016 go?? December 2016, The Hallmark Channel is already airing the Christmas specials and I am barely out of my summer wardrobe! I know I am repeating myself, but it is time to closet edit, make sure you have what you need to get you through winter AND, lets plan spring!

I hear many complain that the stores are already displaying spring and the winter items are tossed around like yesterdays news, they can not find a thing. I told you so!  Didn’t I tell you in August to have winter ready? Good News/Bad News.

As for the bad news, I will not rub it in for those who did not heed my advice to shop early. Good news. If you have not planned for winter there are some fabulous sales. For example, at Hu’s in Georgetown, in the lower level everything is 40% off!!!!  The other piece of good news is you do not have to make the same mistake for spring!  Looks Speak will start posting SPRING MUST HAVES very soon.  In the meantime for all of you “Deansters”(as in my son Dean who doesn’t always follow my advice!), here is an abridged winter checklist. If you still need any of the following and can not find it or need advice on where too find it (on sale), give me a call, email, text, stop by, or whatever your favorite form of communication might be.

WINTER/CHECK

  1. Warm, warm boots. Winterized.

    Warm Boots

  2. Warm, attractive, in excellent condition winter coat(s), preferably two, one for running around and the other for work, special occasions.

    Casual Coat

  3. At least one very cozy, warm, sweater. (Come to the Looks Speak Holiday Sip & Shop)
  4. Winter boots (less bulky than the aforementioned warm, warm boots). An attractive over the knee or just below the knee or bootie.  All three if you are feeling a shopping spree, if not, no worry. There are amazing sales right now, you can pick something up anywhere from $30-$400 plus. Something for everyone!
  5. Opaque Tights.  Make sure yours are in good condition. TIP: If you are wearing tights with booties the tights tend to get pilled by the zipper, reserve those pilled tights for booties only and when your entire leg exposed have a separate pair. holiday-sip-shop-popup
