♥ Building a solid wardrobe. Shopping for fun, trendy pieces versus saving and investing in classic fashion essentials ♥

Hi ladies and gents! We constantly find ourselves with a growing pile of impulse purchases that we barely wear, I told you about it last week. Meanwhile, day after day, event after event, we expectantly return to the few quality items that always look classic and have been shown to stand the rest of time. So what are thé Fashion Essentials you should have? I’ll tell you.

Black Heels: A good pair of black heels will last you a lifetime. Whether you’re headed to the office or out for cocktails, black heels are a must-have! Scroll down to see mine 😉

Running Shoes: These should be comfortable and provide great support whether you’re at the gym, hiking outdoors, or exploring a new city. Like Skechers.

A Bra for You: Finding the right bra can be quite tricky. Start by getting yourself measured to find the correct size, and then choose a bra that’s comfortable and will work underneath a variety of different style tops.

No-Show Underwear: Sometimes even thongs won’t do the trick. For those lightweight fabrics and form fitting pieces, seamless panties are key. You’ll be surprised how often you’ll reach for a pair of these.

Little Black Dress: The key here is to keep it simple. Add a statement jewelry piece and you’re good to go.

A Dress That’s Just for Fun: Once you’ve got your classic LBD, pick up a dress that’s just for fun.

A good skirt: plissé is the trend And I’m wearing it today

A Striped Tee: When it comes to Ts, a striped one is a must-have. It’s easy to wear

Blazer: Every closet should have a tailored jacket, that can be worn with jeans or over a cocktail dress. To keep it feminine, be sure the silhouette is fitted.

The Accessories

Leather Handbag: A leather handbag will last for years. It’s functional and chic. A medium-to-large size is ideal for a girl-on-the-go. So she can easily fit her Phone, and all her essentials. Paul’s Boutique has some great looking ones. [Today I’m wearing a bordaux lacquer bag]

Clutch: Whether you’re headed to a cocktail party or a date-night at the movies, the clutch is the easiest way to dress up any look.

Watch: Really essential for a girl with ambition. Like this one from Daniel Wellington.

Jewelry: Your essential accessory.

Sunglasses: For this item you must spend some more, because its essential to have very good protection for your eyes. And ofcourse you’ll have to look great with them on.

Weekender Bag: For those weekend getaways, like I had with EDIE 😉
