So that's me last Sunday, feeling bright and happy as the colors that I chose show. I'm wearing earth tones too, which is great for morena skin.
Whenever I shop, I always look for dresses and bottoms, not tops. I always tend to feel that if I'd have to spend,I'd rather go for something edgy. That basic tops are not worth my buck. It even shows in the clothes I choose for BLINDxx. I was happy, until I arranged my closet just recently and realized, wow, topless. (not like that)
I was seriously running out, and I even had more bottoms! That's why when the ever famous f21 opened last week, I scanned for basics. Quality tops can go a long way, especially basics. You can transform it street casual to smart casual to sunday's best to corporate and vice versa, you can do wonders and you can over-use it, it all boils down to how you style it. I have a bias for loose tops.
Realization! It's always easy to get seduced by pretty clothes on boutique racks, but the next time you decide on a wardrobe change, honestly evaluate honestly your lifestyle. In my case, I'm 60% work, 15% day casual, 15 % Sunday, 10% Party/ Event/ Statement Pieces. So my closet will have to reflect that. Remember, just because it's basic and easy to wear wear doesn't mean it can't get trendy and explosive! ;)
