Helmut Lang Asymetrical jacket
Monday, March 4, 2013
For the last two years I haven't been myself. What I mean is I haven't been my true self, style wise. Remember when I talked about the trap. Well I decided no more. I did a much needed closet haul and cleared out almost half my wardrobe and shoes.When I think back, it was all such a waste of time, especially money. I only keep and purchase things I love now. With such an empty closet, its good to see what I actually have and build from there. As much as I love, love, love J.Crew, I'm starting to entertain other designers. I really like things very simple and uncomplicated. I'm falling in love with Alexander Wang's Tees, Vince, Theory and Thakoon (to name a few). I'm loving over sized jersey tees (very forgiving when you're trying to hide a multitude of faults) and thin linen/cotton tees. Since my style teeters on the tomboy side most of the time, I'm loving some of Helmut Lang's structured pieces. Bloomingdales Outlet, Off Saks Fifth and Nordstrom Rack have become my best friends for these kind of things. You can pick-up these kind of designers at a fraction of the cost. Sometimes the prices are a down right steal. The way I see it, spend money on a few well made pieces, then a whole lot of money on disposable clothing. Do you agree ?
