The weather is getting cooler. Soon it will be time for me to switch out my summer clothes for my fall/winter clothes.
My winter wardrobe is non existent after living in Los Angeles for ten years. One, it doesn’t get that cold in L.A., two it’s a much more casual place than New York or Rome.
I am slowing adding pieces to my wardrobe. No more fast fashion. It looks like crap on me and never lasts. No more impulse buys. I can’t afford to spend what little funds I’ve budgeted for clothing on items that sit in my closet because I wasn’t sure what I was thinking when I bought them. No more buying items that are just okay. I have to love the fit, the color, the style, everything. I don’t care if it’s a simple t-shirt or a leather bag. If I’m not swooning, it stays on the hanger.
There are so many things I want. What I need however, are tops and dresses.
I’m a big J. Crew fan. I haven’t had much luck with their dresses. They tend to be too small for me in the chest area, but I have found some great blouses and sweaters.
I adore the simple Jules dress. It could be casual or dressy depending on the accessories.
You can’t go wrong with a classic white blouse.
The neckline on the Beckham dress is AMAZING. I couldn’t find of a photo of it in the graphite color, which is the color I would buy. It’s a pity I can’t afford it. I will have to appreciate this dress from afar.
