Deciding what new pieces to add to your closet can be somewhat daunting at times. Is it a basic? Is it something timeless? Something fun? Something special? I am always searching for a bit of all of the above in each piece that I buy which is pretty tough criteria. But in the end, I feel like I am building a wardrobe and adding a quirky piece to something basic that I may have had for five or ten years (I tend to keep everything) makes it seem fresh and different. Or adding yet another basic white tank, Ann Demeulemeester makes the best, is a purchase that I make every season. Somehow, they look right under everything from a vintage YSL jacket to a great pair of high waisted glittery Chloe pants from the 1980s.
A great Halston is basic, timeless, fun and special. We love this new two piece black silk ensemble from the 1970s. It is cut on the bias so molds beautifully to the body. The sheer silk chiffon dress with long pointed sleeves worn over the slip dress is a little bit sexy, easy 70s glamour and also a little goth. All black at night looks beautiful: black silk dress, strappy black shoes and a black bag looks magical but we also think that this dress would look amazing with a great brightly colored shoe as well!
