As you would have read in my previous post the minimalist Closet , read here in case you have missed ,you don’t need to empty your bank to own the perfect wardrobe. Follow the pyramid of success to a perfect closet.Start with the basics , add a few signature and or couture and just a little bit of bling to jazz it all up. Go to thrift stores and pick some vintage accessories for almost a dollar. Whenever you travel always visit the local souvenir shops, the street shops, trust me they have the best kind of accessories you need to make a difference. It’s nice to have a few pieces which cost you a bomb for special occasions.Nevertheless it never hurts to fill up your closet with some thrifty daily pieces that you would end up wearing way more than the expensive pieces.
