Essential: Tailored Suit

5 Dec

Happy Hump Day Lovelies,

We all should own one, you know the one that makes you feel like you landed the job. Whether slacks or a skirt suit, we all need one. The rule is which ever is the most flattering to your body type, which is why I chose the skirt.  Skirts and dresses are always more flattering on me because I am very narrow, and being narrow gives the illusion of longer legs, as do nude heels or leopard as both are very neutral.

I have worn my suit to interviews, training conferences, and through out the blog,  only I combine it with different garments.

This is when you know that you invested well when essentials in your wardrobe become staples.

Back to School

22 Aug

Hello there Jewels,

It has been a while since I had to go back to school shopping and it was always a special occasion for us growing up. Our father had an annual meeting Labor Day weekend usually in the Northern part of California, or Nevada in Las Vegas, or Reno which is when we did most of our school shopping. My sister and I always made the best of it, and other times not so much.

Sister, if you were reading this you know what I am talking about “does the Sheraton Parking Lot in Concord California ring a bell?” If you are all wondering what it was, we were caught smoking by our mother who saw us from her hotel window and of course me being the older sister was blamed for it all. Omg, how embarrassing that was, we don’t smoke now, but you know how it is when you are growing up, you do it because you think it’s cool. Back to the school shopping, part of why I like going to school was dressing up every morning which is one of the reasons why I couldn’t have attended a private school because of the uniforms. However if I did I would hope it would include the Burberry plaids and Louise Vuitton.

My blouse actually has subtle polka-dots, I would have to have several print feminine blouses to mix with the plaids, it would be nice if they were the Burberry plaids, and of course my book bag would be by Louise Vuitton.

Sunnies: Tori Burch, polka-Dotted blouse: Forever 21 (old), belt J.Crew, skirt Burberry, flats Banana Republic, Bag Wilshire Monogram Louise Vuitton.

Until next time,
Monica
