Wild for Monnier Frères

BLOUSE, JEANS, BAG, EARRINGS, HEELS: (old) affordable; splurge

I remember it like it was yesterday.

Ten years ago (before my blog), I was a starving ballerina. I transitioned into PR, which then moved into a few freelance jobs just to barely cover my expenses. Shopping for clothing and accessories took a backseat (like way in the back), but it was always top of mind. Designers like Oscar de la Renta, Valentino and Jimmy Choo were a few favorites to window shop and add to my years of wish lists. Yes, the daydream game was strong…

One of my favorite ways to punch up an outfit is to do it with accessories. Not only do they polish off your look, but they add personality too. Plus, there’s nothing that brings a smile to a woman’s face like a pair of dazzling earrings, a pair of killer heels or an unbelievable tote (take note, my dear male friends). I’m telling you, adding in that one accessory could be the thing that takes your outfit from ordinary to extraordinary. I’ve seen a simple black dress be transformed with the right accessories.
