Replay 2014 #2

Tory Burch jacket (similar), Twenty8Twelve top (similar)
Pilcro pants (similar), Madewell sunglasses,

Rag and Bone Boots

Since it’s the last day of January, I thought I’d finish the month with another replay outfit.  Though the boots are new (they were my big Christmas gift from Kevin and Sean), all the other pieces are older.  I’m wearing the burgundy corduroy pants shown in December; the sunglasses have appeared on the blog many times; the Tory Burch leather jacket is at least five years and the Twenty8Twelve floral button up blouse is at least three years old. These pieces show that investment pieces can pay off over time.

Investment pieces are items that may cost a bit more than usual, but are classics that can be worn for years, so the cost per wear is relatively low.  These are the pieces I “invest” in:  dark wash jeans; blazers; classic work pieces like pencil skirts, blouses and wool slacks; shoes (because there’s nothing worse that having sore feet), handbags, and anything that I just love.  On the other hand, the pieces I spend less on are: tee shirts, anything trendy (faux leather pants, colored denim, printed pants, etc), white shirts, exercise clothes, and costume jewelry.

Since some of my pieces are no longer available, I've included links to similar pieces.

Emmie is the ultimate accessory!
