What are some rules about dressing you follow but you wouldn’t necessarily recommend to others?

I kind of recommend everything I do to everyone just to put it out there. If it helps or works for them, I’m happy! If not, well, I tried.

I follow a lot of rules related to my body type, for sure.

I’m an inverted triangle with broad shoulders.

Countless of women have tried to tell me I do not have broad shoulders but I can clearly see that my shoulders are wider than my hips.

I don’t hate them per se, I just dress for it because what am I going to do? I can’t make them slimmer!

So, I try very hard to avoid buying spaghetti strapped tops, I completely abhor tube tops, halter tops and anything that accentuates how wide my shoulders are.

The only minor time I bend that rule is with spaghetti straps, like when I bought this pinstriped spaghetti strapped (!!!!) bustier tie top.

I knew I could wear a blazer or jacket over it most of the time, and I loved the silhouette & ease of it so much (it’s a cotton BUSTIER…) that I had to have it.

It’s currently sold out (it was a Olivia Palermo + Chelsea 28 at Nordstrom piece) but I found a similar cotton bustier here, and here & here although without straps, it’s a tube top.

I knew I would never see a piece like this again and I have since been proven right.


Otherwise, I adhere to pretty much rules that I want to avoid seeing on other women, such as overexposure on top and on the bottom *cough*, and just general sad sloppiness.

I feel really sad when I see women who think they have nothing to style, give up completely and wear these terrible chino pants made for men, men’s shoes, with a button up shirt.

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    Inverted triangle with broad shoulders is the best body shape. I would love to be like that, instead of my bloody pear shape. Nothing looks nice on me and I am of normal weight.
