While I am obsessed with accessories and unique items, you have to have great staple pieces to start with. Sometimes the simplest items can be the best items in your closet! I was reminded of this recently when a client asked me to help find her two items: gold hoops and black pumps, and her specifications list for each was detailed. I know these items sound simple, right? Why did she need/want my help with these items?! That is simple, she wants them to be perfect because she is going to wear them a million times, a million ways. Great staple pieces are key and make it easy to build an outfit. Items such as a LBD (little black dress), the perfect pumps, a great pair of earrings, a bag that matches everything, great denim, simple black & white tops; these are key items in your wardrobe and in my opinion are ones that you should spend a little more on to get just the right one if necessary. If you choose to buy less expensive versions of these staple pieces, just make sure they are well maintained and cared for-you don’t want to reach for those black pumps for an important meeting and the heel is coming off! It may be that your staple pieces are not the same as other people’s staple pieces, you have to determine what pieces are most important to you and your wardrobe daily. So tell me, what are your staple pieces and where did you find them? What staple pieces are you still searching for?
