When building a wardrobe we want to build with the basics and then work our trendier pieces to accent the outfit. I try not to spend my dollars on real trendy pieces. I would prefer to spend those dollars on a beautiful designer handbag that will stay in my closet for a long time. I often wear a top under $50 and carry a $2,000.00 bag. I love the high and low of fashion.
When it comes to classics in apparel, I will also let go of the pocketbook because I know that the item will not go out of style by end of season. I love the the brand Rag and Bone. They are a brand that is pricey but not out of reach. Get it on sale then you have scored!! They do a great job bringing the trends into the line up without compromising their classic clean lines. I especially love their jeans. Go here to get a few styles that are on sale. Just remember, these are new styles, not styles from summer.
I will throw up a couple more categories before Sunday. I know that a lot of you have been busy and haven’t had the time to take a look. I have done the short cuts for you. Go to the menu bar at the top of this post and click on the Nordstrom Shop tab. When it drops down, then you can choose a category that might fit you. I have not updated the links lately so there might be items that are sold out. I apologize now if that’s the case.
Next week: Thinking about a trip to Africa? I will begin my posts on my trip to Tanzania back in June. Tips on How to Plan a Trip to Africa.
