the 5
1. the Vince cashmere hoody, this has already been a workhorse
2. True Religion jeans, also a workhorse
3. White House Black Market top, I'm probably wearing this for Christmas
4. Rundholtz top, undershirt sold separately but I wanted to show the slit, shirt buttons up top and bottom
5. Porto asymmetrical gilet. I really didn't think I would find a long vest that fit my body let alone my style persona

the basics
1. Guess leggings with mesh inserts
2. navy cold shoulder sweater
3. Porto slate mesh overlay top
4. c&c California leggings

This was my first 5 piece that incorporated a budget. I went $40 over, but that's not bad considering that 4 of these were spendy (for me) investment pieces. The budget is pretty bare bones considering the cost of some of the things that fit my style persona. I decided to skip shoes this season so that I can get wear out of my awesome collection.

I am really wanting these RO pants. They represent a signicant portion of my winter budget so I would have to really be careful with my spending.
