On Building A Closet of Classics

January 14, 2013
Jacket – thanks to Rebecca Taylor (similar style here, also similar here for $52)
Blouse – Celine (at Nordstrom Rack, similar here with gorgeous scallop detail)
Jeans – thanks to 7 For All Mankind (my favorite dark denim! here)
Sunglasses – Prada (here)
Purse – Celine
Heels – Stella McCartney 

Want to hear one of my not-so-secret shopping secrets?  I’m a huge fan of outlet stores like Nordstrom Rack, Neiman Marcus Last Call and Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th – it’s where I hunt for timeless classics, like this perfect (and perfectly simple) white blouse by Celine, which was found at more than 80% off.  Other great items to look for while you’re there? Classic work trousers, blazers and pencil skirts. My biggest piece of advice for women finishing school and entering the workforce: slowly build your wardrobe of classic items here – where your dollar stretches much, much farther. 🙂

Happy Monday!
