{Jacket: D&G; Jeans: AG; Scarf: Scoop (similar);
Shoes: B Brian Atwood (similar)}








Sometimes all I need is a good tailored jacket and a colorful scarf to make me feel put together.  I've had this D&G jacket for many years now, and, every time I put it on, I am still amazed by the impeccability of the tailoring.  Some pieces are definitely worth the higher price tag because you know that not only will it be a mainstay but also a long-lasting part of your wardrobe.  It's just a matter of determining what you will use most.

What are your mainstays?

  3. I love this jacket- from a distance, it's classic and unassuming, but up close the detail is gorgeous!

    Found your blog via the Lucky Community- love it!

    A closet staple for me is a pair of brown leather riding boots I picked up in London several years ago- I literally wear 'em with everything.

    1. I love those pieces that survive the decluttering our closets go through every once in a while. It makes me feel good knowing I've invested in quality pieces.

  4. That print on the jacket makes it stand out. My mainstays would have to be jeans, Converse shoes, and moto jackets!

    1. I've been searching for a moto jacket but I haven't yet found one that doesn't look silly on me. I don't feel like I can pull off one that's too edgy. But I love how they look on everyone else.
