Black Knee-High Boots (Exact here; Similar here & here)

The stacked heel on this boot is one of the reasons I had to have it. They’re comfortable, edgy and stylish. The buckle gives it an edge and the round toes makes this boot very sexy.  I’ve had them since  2009 and I still receive lots of compliments when I wear them. They held up pretty good and they have a few more years left in them.


A Reliable Denim (Exact Discontinued; Similar here & here)

Everyone needs a really good denim preferably a dark denim. Mine are my Coldwater Creek trouser denim. I love them not only because it’s comfy but I can dress it up or down based on the occasion. If I am feeling fancy, I usually pair it with a blazer or dressy top. For a casual look, I wear with with flats and a simple shirt. It fits me in all the right places, I like them a lot and they’re very forgiving.

My favorite handbag is actually a Cole Haan bag my mom bought me a few years ago. I couldn’t find a picture online and mine is currently at the cleaners. However a close second is my Dooney & Bourke Florentine Satchel (pictured). I got mine at an Outlet for a steal. I got the large size so I can fit quite a lot in there. It’s one of my go-to carry all bag.

A Wrap Dress (Exact here; Similar here & here)

I recently got a faux warp dress that I’ve been coveting for some time. I was hesitant to purchase it online because I am currently between sizes. Yes blame it on a summer of good food and bad decisions. To my surprise, this dress fits like a glove and hugs me in the right places. It’s versatile so you can wear it in and out of the office. When the weather gets colder, I will pair it with my knee high boots and wear it through winter.


A Black Cardigan  (Exact here; Similar here & here)

A Black Cardigan replaces a blazer on those chilly days. I like them because I can wear them with jeans and a t-shirt or with a dress and still look fashionable. Cardigans are easy every day pieces that can be customized by color, style and add some accessories to give it a wow effect.
