There are many things  I declare my undying love for: travel, ice cream, my husband, family, (faux) fur and lace.

In fashion, there are key staple pieces that every woman should own: a little back dress, a pair each of nude and black pumps, a great pair of jeans, a well tailored blazer, turtleneck, slacks and a white shirt. I love the classics and while I was looking for a soft white blouse, I came across this beautiful detailed one. Continue Reading…
