Hello Fifth House Readers! I‘m Natalie from Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers and I am so excited to be helping Carmel out with this amazing series! In no specific order here are what I consider the 7 things all women need in their closet!
Hello friends! Today you are all in for a real treat as I somehow suckered Natalie from Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers to share her 7 wardrobe essentials!
Natalie is the full on I-kind-of-hate-you package. She’s beautiful, her home is beautiful, she looks good in everything – probably even work out clothes, and she can cook! Yeah- like I said, I kind of hate her. 😉 But seriously I can’t remember when I fell down the rabbit hole at her blog, but oh what an adventure it has been ever since! She’s always dishing up the goods – passing along great deals- and quite often making me wanna bust out my credit card. Without further adieu……….
A GREAT FITTING PAIR OF SKINNY JEANS
My all time favorite skinny jeans are Rag and Bone Skinny Jeans in Kensington wash. I can’t live without them! They suck you in all the right places!
Even my style icon Gwyneth Paltrow has them!
Nude pumps go with anything and everything. They look great with jeans and dresses, so versatile. I love this Micheal Kors version.
A BIG FABULOUS TOTE
As a mommy to a little one I always need a huge purse to stash all my stuff in. Your purse can be hot mess but you still look chic if you are carrying a great purse.
This is my personal collection of big fabulous totes:)
A FEMININE BLOUSE
I am a blouse hoarder. They are my favorite item to buy so of course I feel like all women should own a super feminine blouse! They can really dress up jeans and make a pulled together outfit. Rebecca Taylor, Joie, and Diane Von Furstenberg make the best blouses!
I am lusting after this Joie Blouse for Spring.
A GREAT SLIP
I love to wear dresses but there is nothing I hate more than seeing bulges and underwear lines. All women should own a great slip. I wear my Spanx one all the time.
A statement necklace is the best piece of jewelry you can own. It can dress up even the dullest outfit. I love to wear a casual tee shirt and a fun necklace.
I adore this Adia Kibur one, it would go with everything!
A MAXI DRESS
Last but not least I think everyone needs a Maxi Dress. They are chic in the winter with a cool blazer or leather jacket and perfect in the Summer. Effortlessly chic!
Thanks so much Natalie! I’m a big believer in the power of a great blouse and a big fabulous tote as well! I told you all she was always dishing out the goods! Be sure to head over to her blog for more fabulousness.
