The Basics

Monday, September 9, 2013



Jacket, Top &Shorts: Zara / Shoes: Alexander Wang / Personalized Necklace / Bag: Balenciaga (available HERE)

Leather jacket. White shorts. Black strappy top. These are just a few of the basic pieces that every woman should stock up on. And trust me, you can never go wrong with these -- they're failsafe, versatile items that you can play around with and mix with other pieces from your closet. When I'm cast in situations wherein I can't be bothered to even dwell on coming up with a decent OOTD (a.k.a. #busyworkinggirl), I rely on these basic pieces to get me through the day. Case in point: the achromatic and casual ensemble pictured above which I wore to a long, tiring day which entailed orchestrating a big client event and mobile on-location shoots. Whew.

P.S. This is what happens when you're not looking and the camera is clicking...

  3. Haha! I love the last photo. Man, if I posted my "fail" photos, I don't think I'd have readers. Ones where my mouth is half open and my eyes are starting to shut. Not cute. LOL. And I totally agree that the basics are what a good wardrobe is based on! I can never have too many white blouses! Love your leather jacket and those heels are amazing! <3

    1. I have those goofy, embarrassing shots too! Lol! Agree with the white blouses. I'm currently on the hunt for the perfect men's white button down shirt. Somehow, I can't seem to find one that's not too thick and stiff!
