INVEST IN TIMELESS PIECES

We're having a great weekend so far,  Selvia is out of town with her family, and I have friend visiting from Nyc, it always a good time to hang out with family, friend, to share a story, laugh and love. How is your weekend so far ?? We hope you having a good one and enjoy Sunday.
I'm obsessed  with brick wall and ceiling window, thus every time I find one, I'm thrilled. There're a lot of warehouse in San Francisco, this  gorgeous one is in Potrero hill. I pass by it so many time, finally I had a change to take some pictures on my way for Sat brunch. 
Modern classics is what I try to achieve in this look. I like to build my look around the key basic piece  (yellow blazer), and to create a high contrast for the look I  paired it with a navy blue satchel, plus navy blue + yellow is one of my fav color combination. I have this Phillip Lim bag for 2 weeks and use it like crazy. It's a comfortable bag that I can throw everything into, and the color can go with anything. Such a good piece to invest.


Look's details: [ Blazer : ZARA. Top: GAP. Jean: f21. Necklace: S.F local store. Shoes :Nine West. Shades: Michael Kors. Bag: 3.1Phillip Lim. ]
Photo credit go to my friend.
Thanks for stop by, much love. Christy.

I couldn't agree more - investing in those pieces that are versatile, will never go out of style and can be worn for years are the ones you should spend more money on.

This is a wonderful, timeless look. I agree with your advice to invest in classic, quality clothing. When we look at photos a few years from now, we won't laugh at ourselves for wearing such silly trends!
