WARDOBE STAPLES

Thursday, December 08, 2011

In my opinion, two wardrobe staples that every woman should own is an off-white or white coat and a Little Black Dress (LBD).  I have quite a few LBDs, so I like to rotate them.  This is a bubble style one from White House|Black Market. I bought this dress a few years ago and I'm never getting rid of it! It fits perfectly and I love it, and it hides any unflattering areas! The grey bootines were purchased from Payless on Black Friday for $17.00! One of my many treats to myself that day! ha-ha. I wore this look last night to go out for Culture Map's 2nd Anniversary Holiday Soiree at West Ave.  I've been spending a lot of time at West Ave lately, and I'm completely obsessed with this new posh shopping center! If you live in Houston and you haven't been to West Ave @ River Oaks...Well, what are you waiting for?

  6. These types of coats are great for showing up to events and then taking them off! Haha wouldn't recommend to have it on the whole time unless there are only light bites and drinks. Also I try not to wear it everyday, just to special occasions :-)

  19. I know right! One wouldn't think! They were a great steal. Payless has definitely stepped up their game. I just bought a pair of Christian Siriano booties from them on sale
