For the longest time I had this lovely little graveyard section of my closet where the dry-clean-only clothes would go to die after a few wears. So sad, but I am really that lazy and/or cheap. Once I figured out that I could hand wash (or even machine wash) silk and cashmere and found a good gentle detergent, it was like I suddenly had way more clothes. Included: this silk MaxStudio top that Marianne gave me:
A floaty silk top just makes everything else you wear with it look nicer. This Joie top is nearly identical to mine (and this one too) but I'd go for this Vince top at TJ Maxx which is just gorgeous. The Everlane silk shell would also be a good place to start and there's always Boden for a nice drapey top.
I'm not sure what I'm looking at but it's probably Daniel. I'm wearing my silk top with J.Crew skinny utility pants which I wish they'd bring back. LOFT had a non-cropped version that I missed out on but I'd love something similar for fall. Perhaps this Sanctuary pair? Or maybe I should go for the non-camo version. Heh. And again, Joie. Always effing Joie. Deets:
It's the usual stuff - a Banana Republic chain/tassel pendant which is pretty heavy duty. This J.Crew tassel has a similar weight and this one at BR would also be a good option. My bracelet is a Giles and Brother skinny railroad spike cuff which I wear a lot. (The crystal version is on sale, btw.)
I know, this bag. I never get tired of my red LV Epi Speedy. I just think a structured red bag is a good thing to have in your wardrobe. So classic, so cheerful. This Lauren Ralph Lauren Newbury satchel is the exact right shade of red and This Matt and Nat satchel is a really elegant non-leather option. My bargain pick is this Sole Society dome satchel which looks way more expensive than it is.
