investment pieces.

to my friends entering into the big bad working world. this is my gift to you...

Yes, my friends, the steal at F21 or your neighborhood thrift store are ahhhmazing, but a good investment in "wardrobe staples" is something that  will do you no harm, last forever, and take you from intern to CEO. 

1. THE BLAZER: Although it sounds boring (interest yawn here) a blazer is something everyone (yes, guys and girls) need. There are now so many options, you don't need to settle for the one with shoulder pads. Finding your perfect one, will allow you to mix n' match with a pencil skirt, trousers, dresses, and even skinny jeans. {givenchy}

2. THE CARRYALL: A bag that will take you from work 2 weekend, go with anything, and fit your mini drugstore. splurging in accessories will make your trendy affordable pieces look very $$. {alexander wang}

3. THE CLUTCH: For a smoother transition for nightclubs to dinner parties...  {YSL bdj clutch} 

4. THE PARTY SHOE: Will go with any dress, make a statement, and are blister proof. {christian louboutin}  

5.  THE TRENCH: A nice upgrade from your swim parka is this timeless piece that can be both dressy and casual. {burberry cotton-twill trench} 

6. THE PENCIL SKIRT: In a neutral color the possibilities are endless for any occasion and season. Plus, they look great on every girl! {vivienne westwood} 

7. PEARLS: What's a girl to do without them? I love pairing girly accessories with edgier pieces for a classic, modern look. {john lewis} 

8. THE BLOUSE: Enough said... {3.1 phillip lim} 

9. THE WALLET: A nice wallet lasts, or so I've heard. Plus, it will keep your hard earned $ nice and organized. {miu miu}

10. THE PUMP: Because you can dress it up or down, this could be one of your most important investments EVER. {christian louboutin}

Today's goal: Must start saving for "hi, I'm a responsible adult ready to take over the world" pieces.
