On My Mind

Shopping My Closet

My winter coats and boots are stored and I’m pulling out warm-weather wear. Clogs are in heavy rotation again, and I love the Gucci slides so much that I bought a brown pair. The Valentino and Balenciaga dresses, now 5 and 3 years-old respectively, are two of my top spring go-tos. And the Céline hobos remain my run-around bags. It feels good that the items I’ve invested in are still beloved and, in some cases, worn daily.

  • This is a rare talent – to be able to find pieces that one loves and last for years! That’s why we all need “Keep it Chic”!

  • Congratulations, so great to have decisions validated by one’s own closet. I’ve always loved that white dress especially: did you wear it in the winter with a turtleneck?
    The slide speaks for itself.

  • I’d like to come over and shop in your closet too. But, I will say that the items that have held their place in my closet have been, for the most part, things I’ve purchased through your recommendations. Including the Celine hobo, Gucci slides, etc.

  • All fabulous pieces! You’ve collected some great dresses. I find classics like these to be the most difficult to track down. Love the slides and also have them in black and brown.

  • Oh the power of great sunglasses, bag, watch and shoes. They elevate the simple t-shirt and jeans formula that seems to be my weekend uniform.

  • More closet pictures please!!!

    KarinaMay 7th, 2017  7:46 AM

  • Yes, love seeing what you’ve bought and still love to have in your closet. Maybe you could combine it with a few “what I would buy now” picks too, so the rest of us can get in on the action.
