- Ballet flat (#5). Sometimes, I need a break from wedges and heels,especially at work where I'm constantly walking around. I recommend a basic color like black to wear with mostly everything, and a fun bright color.
- Clutch (#20). I absolutely adore clutches. Sometimes our little shoulders need a break from carrying totes and satchels.
- Hoop earrings (#39). If I don't have any other earrings in my jewelry box, I gotta have a pair of silver and gold hoop earrings.
- Jeans (#42). C'mon, who doesn't own a pair of jeans? Most versitile piece of clothing you could ever own.
- Little Black Dress (#49). Need I say more?
- Nail polish (#59)
- Sandals (#75). Hello, I'm a Floridian. Gotta have the sandals.
- Wide leg trousers (#97). Another work staple of mine. Comfort, comfort, comfort.
- Wrap dress (#99). Again, need I say more?
- Man's white shirt (#53). Not necessarily a man's shirt, but a classic white button down shirt. Another versitile piece, it can be dressed up or down.

I really like Balenciaga's crested blazer from their FW0708 collection, but who has that kind of money to spend when you can just go to the fabric store and buy an applique? That's exactly what I did. I love this vest from Forever 21, but they don't have a size XL, and a large would not fit over my chas chas, so I've decided to take an old vest that I have from my closet and made my own crested vest. My next DIY project will be a crested blazer.
