Silky Styles for 2012

A few days have past since we have bid 2011 farewell. Now it's time for me to vamp up my wardrobe for the new year. In 2012 I am looking add a mix of beautiful silky tops, deep colors (like cobalt blue), and fun accessories to my wardrobe. Whatever is thrown at me, I like to keep my closet well stocked- easing the rest of life's stressors. Here is a list of three essential wardrobe pieces for me for 2012.
My three favorite pieces:
The Go-To Shirt: Equipment Signature Blouse (Vintage Green) $230
I cannot tell a lie- I probably over-wear this piece. The reason? The silky, comfortable feel of the blouse. I always try to consider comfort when picking pieces to add to my wardrobe. I know myself well enough to recognize the role comfort plays in my mind when choosing my attire prior to my morning cup of coffee. If I have a long day ahead of me, I'll often pair this shirt either with a gold bib necklace or with my black fur vest. 
The Intern/ Work Dress: Aritzia Franca Dress (Seche) $175
This dress cannot be more perfect for any office. Professionally appropriate, this dress always satisfies whatever dress code I must meet. I love the look of the dress with a harsh red lip for a more intense look. 
The All-Nighter Shoe: Steve Madden Whistle Wedge Boots (Taupe) $100
I'll promise you one thing: you will last all night in these shoes. When nights seem to promise no end, look no further than a wedge. I've almost switched my entire night-out shoe wardrobe over to wedges and it's simply a comfort thing. Whenever I rock these shoes I look to pair them with a body-con dress (in a bright color), or a black wrap dress. Even look to pair them with the Aritizia Dress pictured above for a long-day of running errands at the office.
