Me(Rayne Hagstrom), doing some PRE-FALL shopping at one of my favorite boutiques, DNA Clothing in West Hollywood. I just love sales!

It’s Labor Day! Sales are HAPPENING all over town. Prior to shopping, you want to clean-out your closet or audit it and make a list of items you need for fall: perfect fitting jeans, “fall colored” sweater and light-weight tops, and comfortable boots..along with FALL 2013 trends. Layering is still “in” so pick up tanks and tees that can be carried into your fall wardrobe.

3 Shopping Tips:

1. Find a designer/brand that you love:  Do you want to update your favorite pair of jeans? Find out the designer and look for that section in the department store. They may not have the same exact cut/style but will have similar choices.

2. Leave the tags on until you wear it: That way if it sits in your closet or you happen to find a similar item that tickles your fancy even more, you can still return it.

3. Choose simple pieces: For basics, like suits, slacks, and pencil skirts, choose classic clean pieces with minimal extras, such as buttons, ruffles, pleats, patterns, etc. in fall colors.
