As the Eye can See

As the eye can see

I've been telling myself that I'm going to get into this whole transparent trend, I'm really feeling it. Right now it's all about what to invest in first. I already have a couple of white and black sheer items in my clothing collection, but my shoes definitely need to be spiced up. I'm finally satisfied with my culmination of classic pairs, now its time to get a little lot more creative. Direct your attention above for a moment to scope out the transparent babies high on my list. Now, obviously, I can't afford items such as the Valentino transparent clutch quite yet, but being exposed to high-end wear is important to me because it gives me a better understanding of quality: The #1 requirement my closet must have. When you know what good quality looks and feels like, it makes it really hard to buy apparel that is less-than. But don't start thinking that expensiveness equates to quality. Anyone who has ever shopped at a thrift store knows that's not true.

PS: I got my first mosquito bite yesterday! Kinda bitter sweet. It lets me know that 70+ degree weather is quickly approaching...but I could do without the huge red welt...thanks.

Happy Friday!
