Investing in Timeless Pieces

September 17, 2013

So I am scrambling to decide what to wear to LATISM this week! It’s my very first conference ever! I love to say that I have no shame in recycling things in my closet. Even the Duchess of Cambridge wears things twice! If Kate Middleton pulls it off elegantly, we can too! The key is to invest in great quality pieces.

A nice structured dress goes a long way. I have worn this particular one to my in-law’s 40th anniversary party a few years ago and just recently to Jordi’s baptism. Since I have two conferences this Fall and this color is hot right now, I’m wearing it again. I might throw on a casual jean jacket, a blazer or my trench coat over the dress too. So many choices!

You can always update an older piece with new accessories. I’m loving my new Stella & Dot “Urbane” bracelet.

The shoes were a splurge while living in Japan. I’m not going to lie that the fashionable (and expensive!) taste of the Japanese women started to rub off on me! I don’t regret this purchase one bit. A great pair of heels are comfortable but, be smart about the style. I wouldn’t spend too much on something too trendy.  Animal prints come and go though and I’m so happy to wear these this Fall again.

    The dress is beautiful and the color is amazing! I love the contrast between the pop of color of the dress and the animal print shoes, I am loving the whole concept of “mismatching” patterns, it creates so many more options and creative ways of using the same pieces.

    […] We all love the structured, roomy (and huge) bags that are hot this season. Don’t be afraid to trust your handy shoulder bag that has been hanging in your closet. If it’s light and you don’t have to worry about carrying any extras because you are alone (and free!)— go for it! Remember to use your timeless accessories. […]
