Back To Basics

I don’t own any basic clothes. No white v-necks, no plain black pumps. My daily aggravation in getting dressed could be made much easier if I didn’t have a skewed view on what to buy. I’m drawn to loud pieces and off-the-wall prints. These things rarely ‘go’ together.

Fueled by my aggravation (and maybe a bit of blind curiosity), I am now devising a plan to make dressing easier by buying 5 simple pieces of clothing.

1. The Black Mini Skirt

It’ll go with half of my blouses and can be layered easily!

2. The Black Blazer

I love the thought of wearing this over a maxi dress!

3. The Dark Skinny Jeans

I can’t believe I don’t own these. Who doesn’t own jeans?!

4. The White T-Shirt

Again, no idea why I don’t already own this.

5. The Black Pumps

These have a bit of detail, but it’s much less than the detail on any of my current black pumps!

Wish me luck. I’m going to need it!

love, carmen

  1. Ooh basics are a must! I’m a vintage seller, too, and have a ridiculous collection of off-the-wall pieces… and yet, my daily uniform is a pair of black (or dark blue) jeans and a white T-shirt. The only times I have trouble getting dressed in the morning is when all my T-shirts are dirty. Problem with white T-shirts=stains!

    Haha, that’s why I don’t own any white tees anymore! I guess I should dye them when they get stained.
