Building Your Wardrobe :: The Essentials

images via 1, 2, 3, 4

When it comes to a woman's wardrobe, a black heel is an absolute must. Not only is this classic heel perfectly paired with trousers or a pencil skirt for a business day look, but also makes an incredible statement when paired with something as simple as a pair of boyfriend jeans. My absolute favorite kind happens to be the pointed toe heels. They have this effortless sexiness about them, and are so flattering on the foot. Definitely my go-to shoe when in a shoe rut.


Invest: 1. Theysken' Theory $345 | 2. Christian Louboutin $625 | 3Manolo Blahnik $595
Save: 4. Zara $49.90 | 5. Asos $69.58 | 6. Asos $24.35

Hope you all had a lovely weekend. And speaking of shoes....I purchased my first pair of high end designer shoes! Thanks to the Nordstrom half-yearly sale, I scored these Miu Miu's for almost 50% off! It's my early birthday present to myself :) Have you scored any good deals at Nordy's half yearly? Do tell!

  9. I've yet to invest in a really high end pair of shoes, but dang it if it isn't on my bucket list!!! The Miu Miu ones you picked up are *gorgeous*! I have those Zara heels and I'm so very in love (c: They are perfect for just about everything!

  10. Loving the Manolos! I have trouble with heels due to an extended ankle bone in one foot, but maybe the key is to go for an expensive pair! haha.

  11. I definitely agree that black heels are an essential, and I'm so happy to say that I actually have my own pair...I just wish I could walk better in them! :P I really love your picks; with platforms becoming so popular over the last few years, I now find it so refreshing whenever I see a non-platform pair, and I think that these are the true classics!

    Happy Monday - hope you had a great start to the week!

  18. Ah, black heels...Do I have to pick just one...I want them all. It better to have your basics by dozen, or a half...;)
    Big hugs!
