Getting ready to dress up is just as important as what you wear. Imaging slipping on a pretty gown over a body that was just sweating a bit lugging in groceries or one with greasy hair. Being beautiful means preparing yourself completely before the dress up games begin. You can do this easily enough though by going through a few simple steps.
Take a shower – it’s obvious, of course, that getting clean before dress up games is essential. If you have the time and the luxury, go ahead and take a long luxurious bath. That way you’re relaxed as well for the games to come.
Groom yourself – pluck those stray lashes and pull your hair together in your usual style. You want to feel as though you’re fresh and clean with smooth legs, sweet smelling skin and hair that is at least under control in some way.
Dress up! – Finally, pull on that pretty dress and step into your shoes. It’s time for some serious dress up games. Enjoy!

I had the privilege of being at a pep rally today where the teachers were dressed up like total goofballs. I loved it. I think dress up games are among the most entertaining ways to get people fired up for athletic events or a big test. This particular pep rally was for a big standardized test the kids are taking next week. It might not have made much sense to the more practical of us, but putting one teacher in a cheerleader’s outfit and another in a modified football costume made for a fun afternoon.
The pep rally was led by the goofy teachers in their poorly fitted costumes. They jumped around doing fake cheers and splits and the kids had a great time watching them. Had the teachers been calm, stoic and serious, they would never have gotten the attention of the student the way they did. I’m convinced, as many pep rally organizers before me, that playing dress up games as part of a fun occasion like that is a great way to raise spirits and bring the entire school community closer together.

I can’t tell you how many people I see at school who have a hard time coming up with a style they actually can stick to. When it comes to playing dress up games at school, it’s more about what you’re feeling like wearing that day than anything else. The dress up games are simply a part of establishing your identity.
Wearing different styles to school on different days of the week lets you experiment with style in something of a safe environment. If you have a strict dress code at your school, you’ll need to be a bit more careful about what you’re picking out to wear and when, but for the most part, you can enjoy dress up games at any time. Just find something cute to wear and go after it.
If you love it, you’re in business. If you hate it, you don’t have to wear it again any how. If you can take the heat, your friends at school are some of the most determined critics as well letting you know how it really is.

Personally, I think it’s amazing how much you can do with a pair of shoes. The shoes create the outfit to some degree, in my humble opinion. Consider dress up games, for example. When you’re digging around through all of your clothing options, have you considered finding the “perfect” shoes for this particular combination? Often there is more than one pair of perfect shoes in dress up games and the one you pick can make a dramatic difference in how the outfit looks overall.
Consider a pair of jeans and a cute white top. If you pair those jeans with sneaks, your outfit is absolutely casual and ready for a walk in the park. If you pair those jeans and top with strappy flat sandals, you’re ready for a casual car trip or a trip to the mall. But to continue the dress up games feet first, when you pair those jeans with a sexy pair of heels and a large belt, that casual or snappy outfit becomes downright sultry and you’re ready for the club. All by simply changing your shoes.
