I had one of you ask me if I keep a running list of things I am looking for when I shop. And yes, I do. Lately, my list has consisted of investment pieces, or pieces that I can wear for years to come. I have already purchased some things off of this list like black pumps, a black pencil skirt, and some statement jewelry. Here are a few things I’m still keeping my eyes peeled for. (Click on the pictures to go to the website where I found them)
Every girl needs a little black dress. I have one, but unfortunately I picked one of less than great quality and in a style that is now out of date. This one may be a little bit boring looking, but I think that is the beauty of it. It is a classic silhouette that can have just the right accessories added to make it shine.
A classic trench is something I have been looking for for a while now. This example is from Old Navy, but I picked it because it comes in petite sizes which is a requirement for me because I’m so short.
Blazers are everywhere these days and you lucky “normal” sized people can find them easily. Once again it is something I have to get in the petite section to get a good fit. I have a brown corduroy one and a purple tweed one, but I’d like a more classic one like this in either black or gray.
Riding boots have been in style for a while now and I would love a simple pair like this with just a couple of buckles as the detailing.
Nude pumps are supposed to elongate the legs and make you look taller. I could use every inch whether it is an optical illusion or not. This pair actually comes in my size so they are a big priority on my wish list right now.
I am sure my list will grow as time goes on and I will keep you updated. What other investment pieces did I leave out? What’s on your wish list right now?
