It took me years to figure out how to build an appropriate wardrobe. A big girl wardrobe. There are things every big girl needs in order to have a versatile and timeless closet. Every season has its own necessities in my pretty little world. Two winter staples worth spending a few bucks on? A classic cashmere/wool robe coat and a pair of tall leather boots. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. Save your frigging moolah and spend a pretty penny on nice staple pieces. Unfortunately for your pocket book, you get what you pay for, so if you want nice stuff that will last, it’s going to cost you. If you are smart and take care of your things they will last you a long ass time. I’ll never forgive myself for not taking care of the most beautiful hounds tooth print Dolce and Gabbana stilettos I had back in the day. I think the last time I wore them a fucking “little person” dressed as a sexy leprechaun barfed on them at a bar on St. Patricks Day. A part of me died that day. Anywho, feast your eyes on me sporting two of my personal favorite winter staples. My camel robe coat and my tall leather boots. Both help me feel and look put together and sophisticated. Take these mammerjammers off of me and I am a plain ol’ friggin hillbilly 😉 Remember, it’s a New Year! Make it your year to do the right thing with your wardrobe. Build that shit, girl!
