I’m finally wrapping up my posts on my basic wardrobe, after being tagged by the gorgeous K.Line. Here are my first two posts:
At last, I’m up to the clothes I wear nowadays. Daytime is all about (yawn) denim and black tops. My favorite jeans are the Hex and high-waisted Tube styles by Acne. Here I am in Acne Hex jeans and my vintage Ossie Clark snakeskin jacket.
On top, I’ve been wearing this American Apparel t-shirt in black for a couple of years. I think I have 10 of those shirts. I liked the length and the double-V neck. You can wear them backwards or forwards. Good for lazy people! I wear the exposed seams on the inside.
Does anyone want 10 black t-shirts? Because OH MY GOD I can’t stand them anymore! I have to find something else for this summer.
For evenings, if it’s dinner/drinks with friends, I’m trying to get away from denim and dress up a little more (like here and here). For a big night out at a major party or black-tie event, my basic rule is no black! That is the time to stand out, not play it safe. I’ve found out that no matter how beautiful a black dress is, it really doesn’t pop. Here are a few of my favorite party dresses.
And a party isn’t a party without false hair and eyelashes! Those are definitely basics for me. I love any excuse to get out the faux-ny tail. An Amy Winehouse-inspired look last year was my favorite faux-ny tail look ever.
I have a backup hair option, but I don’t use it as much.
