Every girl needs a full-length mirror. Without one, how can you efficiently gauge the success of an outfit, or decide whether or not a party frock is the right dress for the evening? Many times in the past, when I've gone without a full-length mirror, I've had to resort to standing on chairs in front of a vanity mirror, risking a turned ankle to ensure that my ensemble was up to snuff.
Of course, another great reason to add a full-length mirror is that it helps to visually expand a small space. Turn one on its side and use it over your fireplace mantel. Prop one against a wall to make a tiny bedroom appear more expansive. Or, place a full-length mirror opposite a window to reflect the light and open up the room.
