There's this habit I have: I purchase an item in a luxe or delicate fabric, deem it special, and then burrow it away in the back of my closet to 'save' it for a special occasion. The next thing I know, said item has been sitting there for months, because I'm still waiting for just the right occasion to occur. I would call it hoarding, except for my ability to clean out and organize my closet like nobody's business.
Recently, however, this habit has changed. I've conscientiously decided that I'm not going to save delicate pieces for special occasions, but rather style them in with my everyday pieces. And I have to say that the result is pretty cool. Wearing something like a filmy silk blouse on just a regular old Tuesday makes that day a special occasion. And who doesn't want every Tuesday to be special, right?
Check after the jump for some more luxe pieces that are not only easy to wear for everyday, but affordable too.
