I think of the white tee shirt as the most versatile and timeless piece. I just love to dress it up or down depending on my mood or the moment. 

From going to work to run errands during the weekend,  below are 4 different ways I styled the white tee. I hope you like it and will get inspired!

San Francisco is very casual , even for work. A white tee shirt is a good alternative to the button down shirt.

I love to dress up a white tee shirt to go out. Not so casual with a metal skirt and high heels!

Week end outfit… Cool and confortable.

When you want to look stylish but not so much. Accessorize your tee shirt and jeans with a fun bag and nice booties.

Since the CAMILLE Belts have launched, we have received many inquiries regarding belt sizes as people are wondering “How do I know my belt size?”.
First, the most important thing to know before answering this question is “On which part of your body do you tend to wear your belt?”
In fact, there are three easy ways to know your belt size :

1- Measure the size of your waist or hips depending on where you usually wear your belt. Some people wear it around the hips, some others around the waist. The size of your waist (or hips) is two inches smaller than your belt size.
In other words, we will add two inches to your number to calculate your Belt size!
                                                             OR
2 – Know your pants size? We will add two inches to your number to calculate your Belt size!
                                                              OR
3 – Measure the size of a belt you currently wear from the end of the buckle to the hole you are using. This measurement corresponds to your waist or hip size depending on where you wear your belt. Once again, we do the math and we’ll add 2 inches to that number!
It’s that easy. You don’t even have to know your belt size!
Oh, I almost forgot to mention… There is a big chance that you will change size before your CAMILLE Belt wears out ūüėČ

Have you ever bought a piece of clothing that you never really wore and regret your purchase? I often hear this complaint and ¬†when I am with a client I only¬†recommend purchasing¬†clothing that you truly love. Just liking it won’t cut it! Every piece has to have a purpose in your wardrobe.

Here are my tips to make sure you are making the right choices:

As noted above, most important question: Do you love it?

Secondary questions:

– Do you feel comfortable in it?

– Does it fit right? If not and you love it, have alterations made right away in the store if possible ¬† so you don’t have to bother later.

– Is it easy to take care of it and if not will you take care of it the proper way?

– Do you have other clothes to wear it with?

– Are you buying just because it is a brand you usually like or because it is on sale? If yes, keep the money in your wallet!

Shopping in a store, particularly in a department one, can be overwhelming and not always a smooth experience.

Trying on merchandise can be the trickiest part since the fitting room is not always the ideal place to see how you really look. Lighting, getting hot, small space… I am sure you know what I mean.

So, how to make the most of this sometimes uncomfortable experience?

-First, make yourself pretty. Not kidding. If you look at yourself in the mirror and you think you don’t look your best, your mood will suffer and you will not particularly be open to the clothes you are trying on. The lighting is often bad in fitting rooms, so I can’t emphasize enough what a little bit of make up will do for your overall outlook.

– No empty stomach. Who can really think straight when hungry? And water. I always bring some snacks and water at my appointments with my client. It is a nice touch and I want them to be as comfortable as possible.

– Wear the right shoes! Ask the sale associate to bring the appropriate pair of shoes for you to try with your new clothes. I personally always have a pair of pumps and/or flats for my clients in the fitting room. If you are trying a dress on, you really want to have a clear idea of the whole outfit. Thanks to the shoes you will really see the potential of your pieces.

– If possible, go to the store as early as possible. Mornings are often the best because the sale associates are more available and the store is still pretty tidy so you will browse more efficiently.

Voila!
