Here are a few items that are essential on everyone wardrobe because of their functionality and of course they would never go out of style. The best part about this is that you can mix and match many if this items and create different outfits.
A basic black dress– Try to find a style and cut that would flatter your body. Also look for versatility; the dress can look amazing over a blazer for the office or with a fabulous pair of pumps for cocktails.
Blazer– As I mention before a blazer can dress up a fabulous LBD but that is not all. A fabulous flazer can be one of the best investments you ever made. It can create a power suit, dress up a basic t-shirt and jeans. A well fitted jacket should follow the silhouette of a woman’s body and accent the hourglass curve at her waist.
Classic Shirt– A white bottom down shirt is the obvious choice for this but look for one that accentuates your best attributes and minimizes trouble spots. For example, if you have wide shoulders, stay away from large collars.

Layering is a fabulous way to create new outfit from the clothes you already have in your closet.
First let’s start with something simple
As always proportion is key! Because of the layers the upper part is going to be thicker. Pick a slimmer fitted piece for the bottom part of the outfit.
Make sure either one of the pieces is light weight. If both the vest and the jacket are made from heavy materials, it would be a bit difficult to move your arms.
You have many options for this look, from Blazer over shirt, Sweater over dress or other short sleeve top over long sleeve to you want to combine, just be creative. Only thing, make sure the long sleeve layer is lighter and slimmer than the short sleeve.
This is one of my favorite and easier looks. The simplest way to do this trend is with a crop jacket and long top or crop sweater and long top. Try to use only neutral colors for the outfit to look more polish.
I am pretty sure there are more ways to layer and look fabulous, so if you know any more feel free to share
Between all this 60’s inspired shows (Mad Men and Pan Am) and well the new Duchess of Cambridge many of us want to look a bit more polish. Here are some tips to look just a tiny more lady like;
Finally! Miu Miu opened at the Houston Galleria!!!! The beautiful store was designed by Architect Roberto Baciocchi, with beautiful elements iconic to Miu Miu such as; golden damask, embellished by glass and studs, and the polished brass logo.
The 300 square meters, single level store offers the ready-to-wear collection, footwear, accessories, and of course my favorite all of Miu Miu’s fabulous bags; Including these exclusive for Houston fabulous bags!
Who doesn’t love cashmere? It is seriously a staple of winter wardrobe, but as many fabulous things, you need to take a very special care of it, from purchasing it till how to take care for the cashmere to last.
A good cashmere sweater can definitively be a great investment to your wardrobe so try to find the best quality. A great way to test the quality of the sweater before buying it is by gently stretching the body of the sweater. If the sweater snaps back to shape, it is a good sign!
I would recommend to stay with neutral tones (blacks, grays, tans etc). Because this is a statement item this colors would always be in style.
We all have to be realistic accidents are going to happen (especially if you are as clumsy as I am ugh!) If you get a stain and can’t take it to the drycleaners, hand-wash the stain with mild detergent. If for some reason there are some wrinkles, hang the sweater in a steamy bathroom.
