Happy Saturday, Everyone!
I have to be honest, lately I've been feeling quite bored with my personal wardrobe. I promised myself that post-Christmas, once I purged other "unwanted" items from my closet, I would bring in some fun additions. Last year my New Year's Resolution to only buy and keep garments that I love. If that means spending more on quality, then I buy fewer so that they last longer and wear more often. A sale is only a bonus factor. I've learned we cannot buy just because of a lower price. We end up with too many things and even more frustrations getting dressed every day.
I began listing pieces from my wardrobe that needed to be addressed/replaced:
1. Tall Black Leather Boots
2. Camo Jacket
3. Vest (something transitional to go in between teaching dance and working with client)
4. Update Pea Coat
5. Black Leather Ankle Boot
I always tell my clients to invest in outerwear and footwear so I needed to follow suit. Luckily for me, this time of year post-holidays, these winter items tend to decline in cost.
A majority of my success was through Nordstrom Rack online. I love that they carry excellent brands and return policies are easy if things don't quite work out.
I was able to find a pair of Vince Camuto Over-the-Knee leather boots. They have the capability of folding down for under the knee as well. The heel is a taller block heel which will help extend the leg line.
Now camo is always an inspiration in fashion. The neutral palette is great almost year-round. This jacket in particular has a removable faux-fur hood. That makes it even more versatile with a wardrobe. I also love that Debi was
just showcasing a garment like this last weekend in her Stylist Saturday segment. We (stylists) always seem to be on the same wave when it comes to fashion!
I wanted to polish this look from toe to head so I picked out a pom-pom beanie. Although it doesn't work with my usual bun; it's perfect to throw
on over wavy, post-shower hair.
I am loving these pieces so far and can't wait explore further options with them for my wardrobe!
