With designers competing to grab the admiration of the world, boutiques around Rodeo Drive and Fifth Avenue have never before seen such a plethora of beautiful pieces of art, or what I like to call, "the bag." Inspired by art, created by masterminds, and coveted by everyone, a bag is much more than an everyday necessity...it's an investment. Avoid short lived trends and choose something that fits your lifestyle. Coach doesn't count, and Dooney just won't work.My Favorite: Louis Vuitton Le Fabuleux

A fabulous pair of shoes will dress up any outfit or make that special ensemble complete. Basic pumps are tired; try something bright, colorful, and unique. It's hard to admit but nothing beats that tingly, excited, goofy feeling when you're tearing away the tissue that hides those little treasures in that cardboard box! Buy the basics, use the black pumps, but truly indulge yourself on fancy, outrageous stilettos.
My Favorites: It's impossible to choose just one pair!
As summer leaves us, all of those pretty flowy summer dresses are pushed to the back of the closet and the dark winter clothes come out to play. Don't look frumpy in a boring winter coat, instead spice it up a bit and indulge in a coat with some class and style. Thrown over a pair of jeans or a cocktail dress, a coat will perk up any outfit. With so many different styles to flatter any figure there really are no excuses! Short, long, trench, cropped, bomber, capes, leather, wool...these are just some of the different styles and materials that are gracing the runways this season. Buy one, and please use it as an accessory not a necessity!
While trends may come and go, you can rest assure that any of these classic pieces will maintain a long shelf life and ultimately serve as a wardrobe staple. And remember, just one well-crafted garment or accessory will complete any look and provide a timeless, refined polish.
