Adrien: My Permanent Collection.

I have some things in my closet that just seem like part of the permanent collection. They're old and I've worn the hell out of them but they persevere whether they should or not. This dress is one of those things:

It's NY & Co and I bought it at Ross more than six years ago. It was the very first outfit photo! With these same Chie Mihara shoes! Haha, oh man. If this isn't a testament to the value of a cheap-ass print jersey dress and a good pair of shoes I don't know what is. 

This is the kind of dress you can find at Ross and TJ Maxx and it's a great thing to have in your closet on those days when you just cannot. It should be washable and under $50. This T Tahari dress looks so flattering and I love the crazy print on this Nine West dressThis Boden dress is way marked down and could go casual or work and I love the neckline on this London Times floral dress! My go-to used to be BCBG dresses but they're more expensive now. 

I threw on another member of my permanent collection - a teal Martin + Osa cashmere cardigan. (The color is a bit brighter in real life) It's a lovely way to add a bit more color into an outfit. I'm always looking for cardigans in interesting colors. This L&T merino wool cardigan looks a lot like mine and I love this cobalt blue BR cardigan. The J.Crew classic v-neck comes in a bunch of cute colors and of course I want the leopard Jackie cardigan! I'm tempted every fall by the Everlane cashmere cardigan but wish they came in more interesting colors. Details:

Same old stuff seems to be the theme today. I'm wearing my usual CLUSE La Boheme watch and Alexis Bittar cocktail ring of hugeness. My pendant is the Starry Night locket from J.Crew and it's really old! Most of the stones have fallen out, which makes me sad. J.Crew does currently have this enamel locket which is tempting but I really like the House of Harlow version Marianne wears. Ooh, the House of Harlow zig zag locket is also cool though I'd probably stab myself. 

My bag is my usual MBMJ Too Hot to Handle Hobo and it's pretty much gone (except for eBay.) The MJ Recruit hobo is pretty similar, though. My shoes are the Chie Mihara Serpan and every now and then a pair shows up on eBay: 

It's a pretty high heel for me but I love them a lot. There's nothing comparable but aren't these blue Chies freaking beautiful? Ugh. Anyway, buy good shoes and cheap dresses and you'll still be wearing them six years later. Probably.
