There’s an old motto that I heard when I was in school. “Dress well, test well.” It basically asserts that if you are dressed for success, you will achieve it. I believe that this strategy spans far beyond the realms of one isolated event. Meaning that if you constantly dress well and thusly feel good about yourself, your whole outlook on life will be altered positively. So how does that apply to New Year’s Eve? Well, if you are dressed to the nines to start your year, who’s stopping you from continuing that throughout the year and thus having the best year of your life! That’s why I think it’s so important to feel stylish and beautiful, on the inside and out, when the ball drops.
Recently, I went to Kohl’s on a mission. My mission was to find an outfit that could appropriately resemble a fabulous new year for under $100 (one of my revolving resolutions is always to save money. Girl’s got to pay rent!) Like any good journalist, I did some research before heading out to my local Kohl’s. I read some articles online about how great Kohl’s coupons were, so I decided to follow suit and look for some great deals. I found an amazing coupon taking 15% off of any total less than $100, and 20% off of any total over $100 (use code HAPPY2016 online at kohls.com). I filed those savings in my mind bank and made my way to the store.
