I have been dreadfully busy and I can’t even remember when I’ve had time to purchase all these things. Oh well… at least I’ve made some great purchases and indulged in small luxuries to lighten up my sappy life.
I often get questions on what to wear under a semi-sheer or white shirt. Frankly, I’m the last person one should ask when it comes to bras and such, but hear me out! Net a porter offered free shipping last week, and it would be remiss of me not to take advantage of this promotion to invest in the perfect solution for white shirts. So, for those of you who have been struggling with alarming exposure of certain body parts or undergarments; I highly recommend this bra from Calvin Klein. It’s truly magical!
Also, I stumbled across two items I have been trying to unearth for almost a year now simultaneously. The taint of anger is permanently vanished now that I have obtained them. The striped cashmere sweater from A.P.C. is utmost perfection – it’s such an incredible confection that ought to be broached. I’m not exaggerating when I say that it looks as though it was constructed on my body. Too bad I managed to spill red wine on that sweater on its first outing.
In terms of wardrobe planning, however, I haven’t been planning at all, yet I am absolutely happy with each investment. I think my current method works wonderfully – I only settle for perfection. Although I don’t work from a list, I am positively confident in my aptitude to instantaneously descry what works and what doesn’t for my style. I do keep an unwritten list of essentials in mind when I hunt for new wardrobe cornerstones, but I’m open for unpredictable and unplanned finds too, as I’m aware that the most successful mainstays of my wardrobe result from an acute, unaccountable craving. Moreover, making collages helps me to discern between likes and dislikes – it’s as though I reach a kind of collage nirvana that has the answer to whether I should settle for a garment or not.
