Let's recap: the MINIMALista Love Your Look Challenge (MLYLC) is a simple exercise to prepare you for adopting a MINIMALista lifestyle. By tracking and recording your clothing selections for two weeks, the MLYLC will reveal which of your garments you love and which are sucking up closet space.
Even though I've already embraced a capsule wardrobe philosophy, I am using the MLYLC to identify which winter garments to transition into my spring capsule collection and which style of garments I should invest in to fill in gaps.
What I wore:
1. Base: DKNY black opaque tights
3. Accessories: Christian Louboutin ROUGE LOUBOUTIN Sheer Voile Lip Color #001S
4. Footwear: Christian Louboutin Simple 85 pumps
Base: I am sick of talking about and wearing opaque tights. But if my legs must endure more winter weather, this pair by DKNY is a durable and quality solution.
A MINIMALista has a GET DRESSED QUICK outfit
that guarantees she looks good on an otherwise bad day
Core: I wasn’t my normal songbird self this morning and I just wanted to get dressed quick. This classic DVF wrap dress is a get dressed quick dress. It is also a perfect example of the value of tailoring (I had it hemmed to my knee) and knowing which silhouettes flatter your figure and which designers you can count for consistent cuts. For me, Diane Von Furstenburg is one of these designers. Her silk blouses and wrap dresses have the same cut, in updated prints, every season. If you are building or perfecting your office wardrobe, I recommend investing in a DVF wrap dress, at the very least in black. The silhouette is universally flattering and the wrap dress is a classic, wear it forever staple. When shopping for yours recognize that there are three versions: 100% silk; 100% rayon and a viscose/spandex blend. Same cut but a marked difference in garment longevity (and price).
A MINIMALista knows which SILHOUETTES flatter her figure
Accessories: From my lips to my soles, a glimpse of Christian Louboutin red always makes an impact. This Christian Louboutin ROUGE LOUBOUTIN Sheer Voile Lip Color #001S is housed in a fierce amulet with a neck ribbon for easy wear and application. At roughly $100 it is the PERFECT gift for your best friend who has everything (thank you, Pilar).
Footwear: On my feet my trusty and well-worn Christian Louboutin Simple 85 pump is the perfect exclamation to an outfit with a better attitude than its owner.
A MINIMALista knows LOUBOUTIN never lets you down
