Who hasn’t made mistakes with their wardrobe in the early stages of figuring one self out. I’ve given away so much clothes, mainly because it was something I should never have purchased in the first place, there was even a purple sweater I bought twice, crazy.
The essentials to wardrobe building begin with a basic foundation, mine is Black, various shades of grey and white. I throw in color, every now and then, like a light green or olive green for my Maui vacations, I mean I can’t always wear black.
My mother actually hated it that I wore black so much, that I added the grey and I do have a few pieces of pink, and a colorful coat my mother had approved of, that I will never part with. It’s one of the last things I purchased when she was able to get out of the house for afternoon lunch.
A handbag that is on my wish list is from Anine Bing, It’s the Elly Bag, but because I bought jewelry, I have to pace myself, the handbag is lovely and budget friendly. I just have to exercise patience.
The fragrance I’ve been thinking about is newish, it’s by Chanel. It’s the Gabrielle Chanel Essence, I found a sample laying about and since I am on the market for a new scent, tried it on and liked it.
Just don’t forget your red lipstick……
