I promised you guys I'd tell you about my sales wishlist, so here I am with some pics and links. The mix of items might seem a bit random at first sight, but I assure you there is method to the madness. Clean shapes and classy silhouettes, topped off with a healthy dose of quirk. I might be a grown op working woman, but that doesn't mean I've lost my individuality.
Less talk, more pics!
I've been slightly obsessed with finding the perfect basic cotton t-shirt lately. I found two tees that suited all of my needs (no cleavage but not neck-choking, flecked colour, thin fabric, loose and boxy) at H&M a few months ago, but one of them sprouted random holes near the bottom after one wash. I was SO pissed off when that happened, especially since before acquiring those two shirts I'd never realized how AWESOME a perfect tee can be. I wear one of them (yes, even with the holes, that's how much I love them) almost every other day underneath my sweaters because they are literally effortless and work just as well with a pencil skirt as with some jeans. But holes simply won't do, so I'm in the market for some slightly higher quality basic tees. Let's hope these COS t-shirts won't let me down! (nude // grey)
Another recent realization of mine is that I'd be perfectly happy if I could wear some leggings as pants every day for the rest of my life. I mean: they always fit like a dream, they are as comfortable as pyjamas (although I doubt those PVC ones won't be every bit as uncomfortable as I remember my old PVC pants to be) and they just make you look like a total cool chick. If I'm perfectly honest, I like them mostly because during winter time, they are the closest to feeling like you're going bare legged. Jeans and nylons are just too clingy, give me some velvet leggings any day of the week. (Velvet // PVC)
I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who feels more professional when I'm wearing something polished. And I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who likes comfortable clothing either. 'Fitted' and 'structured' are my sartorial arch-enemies. SO, meet the best of both worlds: relaxed, work appropriate dresses! I usually gravitate towards either sleeveless or short sleeved frocks with a high neckline, a short to mid-thigh hemline and a loose fit. I'd advise you to pay attention to fabric as well: no thin, stretchy fabrics here, because those fabrics cling to your nylons (creeping up and up) and show all the lines of your bra and panties. And that NEVER makes me feel professional. (Navy with draped back// sleeveless // cocoon // drop waist)
Finally, these statement sandals. For no practical reason except me really, REALLY wanting them. But just imagine that draped back dress styled with the gold disco platforms! Or if you really want to make a statement: cocoon dress + PVC leggings + gladiator sandals. Am I making sense yet? These pieces tell a story that starts with basics that you can grab and go in the morning, and ends with those items that allow you to show your personality while remaining understated. (Gladiators // disco platforms)
I always strive for some kind of logic. Logic brings calm to my frazzled mind. SO, what's your sales-logic this time around?
