BASICS

TIMELESS PIECES So the other day I have been asked the question, what does any women need in her gardrobe. After that, I actually thought of 10 garments I’d had to I rescue if my house was on fire (obviously if there’s a fire, I don’t think I’d rescue the clothes, I might come and save the cat first that would be a better action). And here’s my point : there are some pieces each of us must have in one’s closet. Of course there is no obligation, but these garments, once you have, them make your life so much easier or at least your mornings (we are all quite used to the mornings of running late because you still don’t know what to wear, it’s a true feminin tragedy). Well here are some of the pieces all of us should possess : Black blazer, perfect for any occasion day or night, winter or summer. Little black dress. A girl’s night out? Little black dress with stilettos. A job interview? LBD with the black blazer! A pair of super stylish yet comfortable jean, to play the rockstar or to play the casual chic. The black heels, to pair it with any outfit for a touch of elegance. Ray Bans, because it’s the best sunnies ever created. I’d be temped to say a chanel timeless bag, but obvisouly it’s a bit exaggerated  since we can’t all afford this kind of ”essential” so I’ll just go with a bag that look good and fits any kind of outfit. And finally, last but not least, I would say a plain white shirt with a flaterring cut, which you can pair to jeans, denim shorts or actually anything else. Here are my top picks and if I absolutely had to rescue some pieces from my closet here’s what I would keep.  


In this look I let you discover some of my recent favourite basic pieces. The leather shorts wich are so easy to wear and actually fit most of the clothing I own. Matched to my white blazer and shirt this whole outfit is finally quite minimalistc but yet full of elegance and comfortable. If the heels are to much for the day, then I suggest nice loafers to match the whole look : it will bring a very edgy and effortless outlook yet super chic and elegant. Because you know how much I love playing with details, I paired my new CC SKYE Victoria clutch and some Yves Saint Laurent bright tangerine lipstick to top off the whole look!


What about you, what would be your 5 wardrobe essentials?

There is elegance in simplicity…and you represent it very well!!!

jeans, simply chic tshirt, minidress, cardigan and ofcz high heels :)

Lovely look, suitable for pretty much any occasion :)
My style is quite different from yours (which doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy your blog!), so I would say that my top 5 clothing items are black skinny jeans, neutral-coloured oversized jumper, ballet pumps, pair of black heels and a sexy tee.

Oh my gosh, I love those mornings relaxing and discovering that there’s a new post an your blog!
Well, just to guess what I would save, without thinking about it would be:
1. my most comfortable heels
2. my Louis Vuitton speedy bag, as it fits every outfit, although it is a damier ebene (why does the colour doesn’t matter to match an outfit when it’s a LV?!)
3. my favourite black second skin 7 for all mankind jeans, I simply love it
4. the Ray Ban is the best idea you had, of course I would save them
5. last but not least, some cosmetics. No outfit works with blowsy or even no make up and oily hair ;)
So these are my faves, enjoy your day without highschool, get prepared for your exams and don’t forget to relax in between!

By the way, I was just lying the same way like now on my boyfriends sofa when I discovered your blog on my first trip to Vienna. Cheers to you!

Love your beautiful basic pieces !
