One of my 2022 resolutions was to buy more consciously and that means buying pieces that I need, fundamental pieces in a wardrobe, and more important with quality (not quantity). The truth is from time to time, I still want to indulge myself and buy one or two pieces that I don’t need but that I like (we all deserve some treats from time to time, right?), even more if we can take advantage of a good promotion!
Versatile pieces are very important and I hope that in the future we will be able to write a post where we show you some ways to combine and form a look starting with a basic (but never boring) piece.
All this to come to the conclusion that there are key pieces that are fundamental to build a solid wardrobe foundation, basic pieces that can be combined in a thousand and one ways.
Today we wanted to put together and show you some of these pieces. The best? Each piece is at an incredible price, courtesy of the so-called Sales!
