I have been asked doing my career if it is possible to look posh, chic, and well put together without breaking the bank. The answer is yes!
I decided to dedicate this post for women who desire to build a new wardrobe with classic and basic elements, without breaking the bank.
Your friends will be impressed with the result.
Here are some of my choices:
THE SHOPPING LIST:
THE LBD: Extremely important for any occasion. You will need one. Yes, you heard me, just one!
The most important factor is being a flexible garment, which allows you to have an executive meeting and throw some accessories for some cocktails and a date night!
This one is from Banana Republic Seamed Ponte Fit-and-Flare Dress U$ 120.00
THE WHITE DRESSSHIRT: It's no wonder that this classic item is on this list. You can use mix and match with mostly any piece of clothing you own.
The Icon Shirt from T-Shirt by Rochelle Behrens ,is a must have! Featured on the media, T-Shirt has 3 basic dress shirts to choose from.The Iconic, which has a boyfriend fit and can be a great way to put a gorgeous belt around it, the fitted version and the 3/4 sleeves.
The Iconic U$ 198.00
THE SUIT: Hands down Theory has the best selection on suiting and impeccable tailoring for an affordable price.
Be sure to keep in mind that this is the most important component in your closet. An investment means years worth of wearing a high quality product and not having the need to buy a new one on every season. The ROI is there:)!
THE BLAZER: Any executive, professional, socialite, stay in home mothers and fashionistas, will need a blazer at any given moment in their lives. You can diversify by choosing different fabrics, brocades, patterns, special detailing, and colors.
My Favorite is from Zara. Not only the price is appealing ( meaning you can buy more than one!), but also it's asymmetrical cut, makes this piece a must-have.
STRIPED BLAXER WITH ZIPS-ZARA-U$129.00
THE COAT: This coat is by far my favorite for this season. Like any item in All Saints, impeccable textiles and garment construction are a given.
The Monument Coat doesn't need any introductions. You will even want to sleep in it, due to its simple appeal and comfort.
THE MONUMENT COAT- ALL SAINTS - U$ 505.00
THE LEATHER BIKER JACKET
The leather biker jacket became the new jeans over the last 4 years. Almost every brand has one in their collection, however Scotch & Soda have outdone themselves. The brand, originated from Amsterdam inspires any type of customer to browse through their aisles.
The inside details, ornaments, scarves, colors, shapes and creativity differentiate this company from others in the retail.
LEATHER BIKER JACKET - SCOTCH & SODA - U$469.00
Don't think twice...Alexis Bittar, Alexis Bittar and once more Alexis Bittar.......I just love his ethereal designs that can pair with the most casual outfit to the most elegant gala one can attend.
These are my choices:
EARING: Dark Phoenix Winding Vine Clip- U$345.00
THE BRACELET : Kinetic Gold Encrusted Mirrored Hinged Bracelet- U$295.00
THE NECKLACE: Smoky Marquis Drop Pendant - U$325.00
THE RING: Smoky Marquis Pebble Ring- U$595.00
They say you feel the most happy whenever you are comfortable in your skin and undergarments. Wolford is a great investment for stockings and bodysuits that will shape and hide any body imperfection. Perfect to use underneath jersey wrap dresses.
BODYSUIT: New your string body-U$240.00
TIGHTS: Fatal 50- U$52.00
THE PERFECT STILETO:
Salvatore Ferragamo has stood out from other shoes brands in the last 5 years. If you want quality and a guaranteed warranty, then take some time to think about how essential a pair of good soles are going to improve your daily tasks.
Your weight stands approximately 80 % of the time in a regular 8pm-5pm workday.
Don't over think it. Louis Vuitton has got the looks, quality and versatility.
