Wardrobe Essentials Worth the Splurge Pt. 2

After continuously putting off this post here it is. I have been wanting to do a part 2 for the wardrobe essentials since I left off a few things. And because they are mainly spring and summer items now is a perfect time. If you missed part 1 check it out here. The point of the original post was splurging a little on wardrobe essentials but finding them for the low. Again, the key to purchasing great quality pieces while still being frugal is shopping out of season, outlet stores and major sales.

Shift/Sheath Dress
A simple well-fitted dress is the best because it doesn't need much to look good. When building a wardrobe of essentials, consider a shift or sheath dress that can easily appropriate for many different occasions. You can find designer dresses at T.J. Maxx, Nordstrom Rack, Saks Off Fifth, or Last Call

Evening Bag

Everyone needs an evening bag something small but big enough to hold your essentials. I purchased a small chain bag from Kate Spade during a secret sale for 75% off. It's a good quality bag but I didn't break the bank. 

Splurge on a pair of designer shades. We all buy trendy cheap sunglasses season after season but our wardrobe deserves something nice. Go to the Nordstrom Rack in the rich part of town and you will hit the jackpot of discounted designer shades. 

Ballet Flats
A simple flat is a versatile shoe that lands the right look from the workweek to weekend. DSW, Zappos, and 6pm always high-end flats for up to 50% off. 

Heeled Sandal
Just like a classic pump every woman needs simple heeled sandal in her closet doesn't matter if it's calfskin or patent, you need this in your wardrobe. Stuart Weitzman is famous for their nudist sandal. It is the perfect shoe. I've seen them both at  Nordstrom RackSaks Off Fifth and online at 6pm for $100-200. If you see them on sale buy them. The regular price is around $400.

The Look for Less: Chanel Backpack

Backpacks are trendy again. I remember wearing them as a kid. The new and improved designer versions are very chic and cool with a feminine touch to the traditional backpack. Chanel is just one of the many designers who has adopted the trend.  Chanel being Chanel put a classic and timeless spin on the it. If I had to pick a backpack to get it would be this one. A lot of celebs and popular bloggers have been rocking this bag and now you can too for a fraction of the price.

Spring 2018 Must Haves Under $50

Spring is on its way and the weather can be unpredictable. Just last week here in DC we went through all the seasons. Just like fall, spring is a transition season as far as clothes go. You can put away your heavy coats but keep the boots, light sweaters and jeans in your closet for spring. Add some of the pieces below to your closet for the upcoming season and you are good. Now, there are a lot more trendy variations of these items you can add. But as I always say this is a post for ideas to add your personal touch.

1. Graphic Tee - Derria just did a post on how graphic tees are the must-have trend. 

2. Mini Skirt - 90s valley girl style is in right now. Pull out your mini skirts and pair it with your suit jacket and whatever shoe you like. 

3. Suit - Suits are in both pant and miniskirt suits. And you need one in your closet because they can be worn in multiple ways.  It's an easy way to maximize your wardrobe. 

4. Oversized  Dress - For those days that are not too cold and not too hot an oversized dress is perfect. Pair it with some sneakers or your winter booties. 

5. Mules - It isn't full-blown sandal weather yet in most parts of the country but mules are a good segway.  

6. Sneakers - Chunky, platform, or embellished pick a style you like and rock it.

Save $ or Splurge $$$ Cover FX Liquid Highlighter

I don't know about you but I want you to be able to see my highlight from across the room. Before highlighting was extremely popular, I would add MAC's lustre drops into my foundation to give me that glow. I didn't know of many liquid highlighting drops back then but now every company from drugstore to high-end make them. My current fave liquid highlighter is from Makeup Revolution in rose gold. 

Makeup Revolution is known for there quality dupes of high-end and luxury beauty products(stay tuned to our IG story for a full list). I can do a Save or Splurge post every month for the rest of the year with dupes from them. MR's liquid highlighter is a spot on dupe for the Cover FX Enhancer Drops. Both brands have an array of colors and similar ingredients. Cover FX is a little more pigmented but for $42 I can buy like 5 from Makeup Revolution.
