Summer Outfit (5): A little bit of my Favorites

In my last post, I wrote down my approach to build a perfect wardrobe. Besides quality over quantity, what has helped me most is trying to buy only my personal favorites. This post is about some of them. ;-)

The black sweater top/dress has a funny name: the square dress. It is basically just like a square tube when laying flat, but with a pair of interesting asymmetric short sleeves. Unfortunately I don’t have an action shot to show you, but here is an online picture, so you can see how it looks like in person. I’ve worn the dress in various ways and it never failed to wow me.

The bag, belt and necklace have become my wardrobe staples ever since I took them home. Couldn’t be more happy with these purchases.

Last come the skirt and these flat sandals, being a lover for modern abstract prints and geometric shapes. They are things to spice up an outfit and help me form my personal, dare I say: style? Other than that, the bright colors always cheer me up. :-D So what’s your wardrobe favorites?

Top: Knott Galerie Vie, skirt & flat sandals: Marni, necklace: COS, bag & belt: Hermès.

    Truly love your personal style – it’s so elegant and edgy. I wish I could determine my own “style”. Reading your posts reminds me to stick with quality not quantity! And then seeing your wonderful outfits help inspire me! Unfortunately, my closet is at the “quantity” stage and my favorites are always changing. I guess I would say that my current favorite is an H&M belt that is the perfect caramel. (Like I said, if you were in the US, I would hire you as my stylist! We would have to organize the closet first!)

    You do bring personal style to the bag, I think. Instead of relying on the pieces, you put them together with a touch of fun– look at the bag picking up the iris color in the beautiful skirt! I don’t often see the bag having a personality like this.

    The print on the skirt has a 3D effect, very beautiful!

    purseaddict, thank you my dear. I adore your style too, always classy but with a modern twist.<3 Congrats on your H&M find. I have couple belts from them and they are all wonderful. If I was in the US, you don't need to hire me at all. lol~~ I would be more than happy to go shopping with you, and I am sure we'd have a lot fun playing with your fab wardrobe. ;-D

    jibjab, thank you for brighten up my day with such a sweet compliment. Hugs~~~~ :-)

    Elysium, I wore the skirt yesterday, totally in love with it. xixi~~

    That’s a lovely ensemble! I agree about buying quality over quantity. There’s nothing worse than realizing how much money you’ve spent for ill-fitting, trendy clothes that never get worn.
