(prices may vary due to holiday sales)
When it comes to my style, I am all about mixing and matching looks and price points. Everything new in my closet must be an addition, whether it’s a $15 pair of leggings, or a sexy Valentino pump. I no longer shop for 10 items that I don’t really need. My shopping habits have transitioned as I realize the value of quality over quantity. For this edition of Gazelle, I found five items that I absolutely love.
Velvet Small Bag, Mango – $29.99. mango.com
You can’t go wrong with a small black bag. This little piece is perfect for a cocktail reception or a casual date, along with basic leggings and a sweater.
Emerald Cara Body Suit, Naked Princess – $106. nakedprincess.com
I don’t know about you, but I still want to feel sexy under my heavy winter clothes. I call it “channeling my inner sass.” It just adds a little pep in my step knowing that I am wearing a sexy little number underneath.
Vance Bow Blouse, Tory Burch -$279. Tory Burch.
I am absolutely in love with this romantic bow blouse. It is perfect for all seasons, depending on what you pair it with, from jeans to leggings, or even a red pencil skirt.
Desigual Jeans – $145 and below. desigual.com
I absolutely Desigual jeans! The colorful, vibrant embroidered details in nearly all Desigual looks remind me of Zambia, my country of origin.
Studs Sunglasses, Lady Dior – $475. Neiman Marcus
A little mystery is good for the girl, and what better way to create that mystique than with a pair of hot sunglasses in the winter? For fun, I just rock them while running through the airport, and let people wonder, “Who is that girl?”
Lilly Metallic Tall Boots, Guess – $169. guess.com
As I prepare to go to New York Fashion Week, I am looking for pieces with a wow factor that can stand a whole day of beating the pavement. These hot boots are perfect for a dramatic look, with a price point that doesn’t make me feel too bad about messing up the heel.
