Hi Ladies,

You know those lists that appear frequently in magazines and on blogs that outline the must have 10 items that every fashionable woman should have in her wardrobe?   Well I confess to thinking they are a little silly as they generally make the assumption that we all have the same style and the same lifestyle.

So after perusing Ines' list in Parisian Chic, I have created my own list ... for me:)  I am not suggesting in any way that this would be / should be anyone else's must haves.

These are the items that I feel are the foundations of my wardrobe so to speak.  Should one of them be removed, my style would collapse around me
BTW this is not really season appropriate, that was just too hard.  But for summer, for example I would swap out leggings for skinny pants.  

My Essential Eight  Ta da!!!

  • The Black Blazer
    Ines and I agree on this one.  My blazer is a little less classic, has a draped lapel and is a knit.
  • The Little Black Dress
    Again, Ines and I agree.  Soft jersey and trademark draping.
  • The Skinny Jeans
    Black, with a little room to move.
  • The White Tshirt
    Draped, jersey - perfect for layering
  • The Ponte Leggings
    A winter staple.
  • The Tunic
    Soft cashmere blend, wear over leggings or jeans
  • The Ankle Boot
    Goes with everything!
  • The Leather Jacket
    For work and play.
If you feel like playing, I would love to know what your list would be.  Doesn't have to be 8 or even 10.  Just list the items that you think set the tone or foundation for your style - your must have items to ensure your own fabulous style - , and add pics if you can
