Holiday Gifts for Fashionistas: The Classics



  Wednesday, December 8, 2010 at 8:06 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,, 
Before I get to the rest of this post I wanted to share this first, net-a-porter has sent over this awesome video showing a few great gift ideas from their Gift Finder feature. With the Gift Finder you can find tons of great gift ideas for fashionable friends in your life! (I wouldn't mind getting The Ultimate Shoe Subscription ;) )


Every fashionista loves a classic item that she can wear forever, so this post is dedicated to those items. The Burberry Trench, Little Black Dress, White Shirt, Black Christian Louboutin pumps and the Chanel 2.55!  Everything but the Chanel 2.55 links to where you can buy the product. Since these are classics they are all going to be very expensive, but when you factor in the cost/wear ratio its worth it. 
(for those of you that don't know that ratio it's something I live by when I shop.  If you pay $30 for something and wear it 30 times it was only $1 per wear, which is a great deal. So if I wear an item once for every dollar then it was worth it)

  8. I think I'm the exception to this rule...honestly, I would never wear any of that stuff! I think I'm just not a very classics person.

    I think the classics are generally suited (hehe) to more businessy women. Really, I have nowhere to wear a classic white shirt, let alone the black dress!

  9. Yes, who doesn't love a classic look? I think it's the best look anyone can pull off!

  15. The cost/ wear ratio makes perfect sense to me. When it comes to my classic pieces you could buy them a few times for the number of times I rock them. Some things are just worth investing in.

  37. I have so many trench coats stuck on my closet since I only get to wear them when i go abroad on winter season. Got a couple of black dresses too for important occasions where I feel lazy to come up with an awesome outfit. Polo.. Am not really a fan of them. Lol. Not the Chanel purse and the pumps are definitely what i need. Bought a couple of pumps but none of them are really comfortable to wear. Makes me wonder why I bought them in the first place.

  38. I'm in love with the Burberry trenchcoat and the Chanel bag, but I don't think my parents would buy those for me haha.
