Tips from a Former Debutante: A Series
All News Article comments count: 0

Lori Shepard Woosley, Cage-Free's floor manager during the week, is a former debutante from Kentucky. (Like was presented in a debut, went to the ball and all that!)  For those of you who do not know what a debutante is, it is an upper-class young lady who makes her first appearance in fashionable society. Often I have dreamed of being a Southern debutante, coming down the double grand staircase in a white cotillion dress with lace gloves and a parasol, and drinking mint juleps when you get a case of the "vapors." Lori is a timeless beauty and a wealth of helpful advice, so it only made sense to impart upon our readers these enlightened tips for some guidance in life. There's some beauty hacks as well as some advice on love and life. (Don't know about you, but I need all the help I can get!! Hahaha!)

Tip #1

"If you don't feel it, fake it till you do."

Fake it til ya make it! Often times, if you just put on a smile, even when you don't feel like it, it can make a difficult situation just a lil easier. You can fake "feeling" confident, but you can't fake "genuine confidence"- this comes from confidence in your knowledge and skill; you really can't fake comprehension and ability. Your smile will promote positive vibes to others, and in turn, they will pass that cheerfulness back to you. Synergy! (when two people produce a combined effect greater than the sum of separate individuals) 


Tip #2

To avoid this....

"When you have to wear a mask, lightly dust the nose piece and other areas that touch your face with translucent powder, and your makeup will last longer."


Tip #3

"Shop with someone who will give you an honest opinion. And don't be offended by the truth."

Cage-Free is always here for you! While we do enjoy making a sale, the real joy comes in helping you feel your best, whether you buy from us or not. We will not push you into buying something if you are not comfortable or don't "love it."  If we don't have something you need, we will give you other suggestions to find what you do need. We just want to give you the best shopping experience so that you leave feeling happy, helped and harmonious.
