RULE 1. Look in the mirror and say to yourself every day “I love you”. Please don’t let yourself become cocky. It’s good to be reminded of our strengths and weaknesses on a daily basis. It’s proactive to remind ourselves what needs work in our lives.
RULE 2. Surround yourself with a great group of friends. That is right! Get rid of the people in your life who aren’t good for you. We all grow up and realize that some people are there for no reason whatsoever. It might be hard to rid yourself of them, but in the long run, it’s worth it.
RULE 3. Edit your closet each season. It is always good to donate the clothing that can be reused and rid yourself of items that are falling apart. It helps refresh your wardrobe and makes you aware of the key pieces you need to purchase for that season.
RULE 4. Say please and thank you, hold the door for the person behind you and don’t forget to hand write a thank you note when it’s appropriate. Why do all of these things? Because having good manners never goes out of style.
RULE 5. Find a good tailor in your area and utilize them. I don’t care what you pay for an article of clothing. It isn’t going to look great if it isn’t tailored for your body. Usually alterations run from $5.00 to $20.00. It’s money well spent when you realize how different you look.
RULE 6. When shopping, purchase classic pieces first. This way you have a good basis for your wardrobe. These pieces should fit you well and become staples to base outfits off of. Trendy pieces should be kept to a minimum each season. Buy only a few that you really love. Not only will this keep your closet from getting crowded it will help save money.
RULE 7. Remember that even on a budget you can look good. These days you can buy clothes everywhere from Target to Dolce and Gabbana. Shop in your price range and know what looks good on your body. Take the time to really learn what is going to look best on you.
RULE 8. Dress your age. I have said this before and will say it many times again. 50-year-old women do not need to be wearing a halter-top and mini skirt. Likewise, 20-year-old women do not need to be showing their mid-drift and ass cleavage. Part of dressing your age and being sexy is showing just a hint of skin. Trust me when I say it’s much more appealing then seeing all of your supposed assets.
RULE 9. It is always better to be overdressed; it is much better than showing up at an event and being the only person in jeans. If you walk into a room in a great dress and terrific shoes and everyone else is wearing jeans and a t-shirt don’t even think twice about it. People are going to look at you and think wow she looks great. Just be comfortable in what you are wearing and enjoy it.
RULE 10. Finally, when receiving a compliment say, “Thank you”. It is not stylish or attractive to say “this old thing” or “hardly”. Enjoy the compliment and even if you don’t believe it saying thank you will make you feel better. After a time you will start to believe that you do look good. It’s a great confidence building exercise.
This is why I started this site up, to help some of you idiots, who swear you're fly, see what fly is. If you go to 5th avenue in New York and you fit right in, then you're fly. If you come back like wtf was i thinking, and feel shut down, then shut the heck up and stop talking about how fly you are. Just because you're the flyest person in your circle does not make you fly at all people, because a lot of you live in these areas with no freakin competition. So once again go to 5th avenue with the real competition and let's see if your ass can hang out there. Then you know you're fly.
