When I think of the most luxe fabric of all, it is without hesitation cashmere.  Cashmere is so luxe that even with my sensitive skin, I feel enveloped in softness.  Cashmere has the ability to trick my brain into thinking I’m wearing a cuddly blanket.  This sweater is the epitome of all of these things.  I love it paired with a black or camel coat for added style.

Furthermore, if you’ve read my blog for any extent of time, I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’m not afraid to invest a little extra in shoes and handbags.  I really feel as though they are the glue that binds an outfit together.  They are final stylistic touches that really define everything.  This bag has been in my wardrobe for over a year and I absolutely adore it.  With the side tabs popped open, it has Birkin vibes & the embossing makes it feel as though it’s truly a one of a kind piece.  It truly adds an element of sophistication to any outfit.

Another wardrobe staple that adds sophistication to all outfits they are paired with were found quite recently in the form of these boots.  When hunting for my next investment piece, I often begin with a game plan simulated in my mind of a piece that will help to give my wardrobe some added depth and use.  While planning some of my Fall/Winter outfits, I noticed that while I had embellished black booties, I did not have a simple pair of black booties that I often felt that an outfit needed.  I hunted for months for the most outstanding ones.  When I came across these, they simply took my breath away.  They are simple statements that will be in my wardrobe for years with proper care.  I plan on getting them resoled as soon as they need it in order to ensure their longevity.  As much debate as I had prior to purchasing them, I couldn’t stop thinking about them and finally pulled the trigger.  I must say, they have proven to be one of my best shoe purchases in a long time.  In the few weeks that I have had them, I have worn them at least 3 times every week.  That is huge in my realm!  They are understated, yet that added pop of red defines them and gives them character and a luxe feel.  These may just be the best purchase that I have made this year.

What has been your best shoe purchase of the year?
