Q&A: Favorites

Mrs. S asks: What is your absolute favorite item of clothing? AND what is your favorite pair of shoes?

my favorite item of clothing at the moment is this Rag and Bone blazer. I don’t tend to spend a lot of money on clothes, as you know that goes to my shoe and handbag addiction but when I tried on this blazer, it was like it was made for me. It is truly the best blazer I have ever owned. The details are impeccable as well as the quality and the fit. I know that it is worth the price as it will last many seasons/years to come.


My favorite pair of shoes that I wear a lot (as opposed to my favorite shoes that I hardly wear) are these Miu Miu pumps. They are nothing special but they are so comfortable and I wear them the most out of all my shoes. I have never found a more perfect pair of round toe pumps. Oh and the soles are pink so when I walk you see glimpses of pink!

meg asks: what is your favorite “cheapy” piece of clothing or accessory that you can’t live without (mine’s a $1 vintage necklace I got from a little shop in Akron, Ohio – it gets compliments EVERYTIME!) and what is your most extravagant item that you can’t live without? (as a sahm…I don’t have extravagant – yet…)

(Meg had two questions, but the other question gets a separate post!)

I love hats but I don’t like to spend too much money on them and I just got this little beret from Forever 21 and I love it! In the winter I always carry a hat and gloves in my handbag so that if I’m walking outside I’m always prepared. This one has been living in my bag and I love pulling it out when I’m cold as I still look stylish and warm! I don’t get too attached to my cheapy clothes so there’s nothing really that I couldn’t live without.

I answered the question on my most extravagant item but I don’t get much use out of those items so my most extravagant item that I actually use is a Rolex watch that was a present from my mom. When my dad came to America he didn’t have a lot of money and when he started his business and started making money, the watch was the first “big” present he bought for my mom. It means a lot that they gave it to me, it really shows me how far they’ve come since they immigrated to the US. I will treasure it forever. So although I didn’t buy it, the monetery value of it is what makes it extravagant but the reason I can’t live without it is immeasurable.

I don’t want to take a picture of it but I wear it a lot so you can spot it in my lookbook pictures!
