OK……….as promised, let’s see what $10,000 can buy me for a new fall wardrobe!
First stop…….Neiman Marcus…….
I decided that my favorite vendor right now is Philip Lim, so you will see a few key pieces by him. The snakeskin satchel, my favorite today. The gunmetal tank top, the silk blouse in that yummy chocolate brown. All things timeless!
Pretending that I am still in Chicago for the fall season……..I chose a few jackets that will get me mileage. A black biker that I can wear with the Chanel boots casually, or with the LBD. Either works fine.
I had to use over 1/3 of the budget on that gorgeous Burberry Coat. My friend Wendy recently walked out of Neiman’s sporting that rich gold color, and I loved it! So why not invest in a 100% Cashmere classic coat? Delicious!
The DVF Navy tweed jacket will be great with jeans and boots. I threw in a James Perse t-shirt which can be layered with anything.
If I had to choose two scarves, these would be the ones. Both good quality wool and cashmere, with great style and color.
I like to add the prices when I can, but I never shop online.
You can get most of these items at either Neiman Marcus or Bloomingdale’s. These are the best places in Chicago to shop. (I know, I’m partial). Theory is always included in promotions, so you can get the basics at Friends and Family or Private Sale at Bloomingdale’s. Sandro is another new vendor that I love. They do some great novelty pieces. T-Shirts and jackets especially. They only go on sale a few times a year. So get it when you see it!
OK, I had to have the Jil Sander cable cashmere. That hurt, but I will have it forever (in my imaginary world that is). I love the DVF silk blouse over the cami. So easy with jeans, or the black pants. Gorgeous!
LLBean classic cardigan……..get a few colors, and buy it in a size too small. I am usually a large, but I would get this in a medium, for a more contemporary fit. I love a black cardigan over a white t-shirt and jeans, with a pair of comfy loafers!
Another chunky sweater and a timeless silk white top. Priceless!
oops! I blew the budget. And I didn’t get a price on those Chanel boots, so that doesn’t count right? OK, ok……..I’ll take out the white tshirt! Sheesh!
I guess I will wait on the Burberry Coat, and hope for a reduction. In the meantime GIRLS, I JUST WANNA HAVE FUN!
See you next week……..back to reality! Sigh………
