Friends aren't only good for sharing secrets and chatting about the latest gossip. They are excellent sounding boards for new ideas, especially when it comes to style. If you feel you can't come up with any new ideas on your own, then bring in a few friends and see what they can come up with. It's just like the saying goes, 'Two heads are better than one', but in this case, get as much brainpower as you can. The more friends, the more ideas you'll have floating around.

My sister is my fashion expert. All I have to do is call her to find out what is in style. Whenever she comes to visit, I drag her to my closet and have her show me what new ideas she has for improving my style. I often get in that rut I was talking about, since I live in the country and don't really need to face the public much. It's amazing at how slack I get in my style when I'm home most of the time.
