Quality staples

Your staples can be your entry level designer products. These maybe belts, Small bags or jewelry. Good quality staples will last very long and they are usually classic products which will never go out of style.

You are not going to wear them every day. Bring them out on days you have special events.

I’ve owned this coat for about 3 years now and I can safely say it is one of my precious investment pieces.  

Statement Pieces

Somehow when people talk about statement pieces we all tend to think of jewelry. Statement pieces can be in the form of bags, shoes or just a different cut or a bold pattern of the blouses you love. I personally prefer my heels to make a statement.

These should be your go-to on days you feel like your outfit is too plain. They are sure to bring life but, also make sure you are not making them a staple that everyone knows they will catch you wearing all the time. Make them exclusive.


How do you ensure you stay slaying effortlessly?

Stay Fab & Flawless
