Garden Party

As I’ve gotten older, and thus, smarter, I’ve been quick to realize how much more sense it makes to invest in timeless pieces for my wardrobe. Don’t get me wrong — I still love trying out new trends and having fun with fashion, but when it comes to basics, I’ve found that it’s key to invest in high-quality fits and fabrics.

Luxurious fabrics not only hold up better, but they are so much more comfortable to wear. Take this cashmere blend striped pullover, for example. The material is beyond soft and totally ups the striped shirt ante. I want to wear it over and over and over again.

However, investing in said wardrobe staples isn’t exactly easy on the wallet. That’s why I love sites like Vente-Privee… I was able to score this Splendid sweater for just $50. Splendid is one of those brands that I could blow my entire paycheck on — the fabrics are insanely soft and comfy! But Vente-Privee makes it a little bit easier to stock up on my favorites. PS — the Splendid sale ends tomorrow (Friday) morning at 9am EST! I’m also loving this tee, this top, this striped top, this leopard top, and this hoodie.

    That’s SO funny, I was just looking at a dress from Splendid online at Nordstrom. I have never bought anything from that brand and wondered how nice it was (since the dress I’m coveting is $98 and looks like a glorified t-shirt). Now I know! 🙂
