Rule #6 - Back to the Basics: My last rule (seriously!) is a reminder that basics are an underappreciated fashion weapon - versatile, cheap, and simple. Each piece is easy to find and gets a LOT of mileage. Who doesn’t like an easy hunt and a bigger bang for your buck?
A solid set of basics includes different colored camis, comfortable jeans (both dark and light), solid colored pumps, standard white button-up shirt, khakis, cardigans, and a classic little black dress. Basically anything that will go well with almost anything else, can be worn in a variety of different outfits, or is unlikely to go out of style. Why these kinds of clothes are cents-ible (hehe get it?) should be obvious.
Also when thinking about basics it might help to think about what kind of color palettes tend to dominate your wardrobe. Sometimes it’s good to pick clothes that will add diversity to your wardrobe, but there’s also something quiet fashionable about figuring out what colors and silhouettes look best on you and making selections that fit into that scheme. This way you will be more selective and everything you buy will likely match something else you already have so you don’t have to buy full sets.
So with that I’m out of ideas. Hope you guys enjoyed and happy shopping!
This has been a long time coming but I had to wait until my new digital camera and all its parts had arrived before I could take my own pictures. (I’ll review my new camera in a few days - it’s pink!! I have no idea why that delights me so much o_O)
Anyway, about a month ago I challenged you girls to send me pictures of your girly room deco and promised I would show mine eventually since I hadn’t finished decorating. Truth be told my room is kind of a mess so no particulars will be revealed (certainly not my bed, which looks like a tornado whipped through since I rarely make it =P).
As an English major I automatically tune into tropes and motifs, and I noticed in the process of picture-taking that the theme of my room are collages and collections. For example, the image on the left is a collage of words cut out from magazines that I made all the way back in my emo, crafty high school days. More »
