My Anti-Basic Black-and-White Wardrobe

By  October 04, 2013

Now that Operation: Turn a College Girl’s Closet Into a Working Girl’s Closet is in full swing, I’ve kicked my fall wish list into overdrive. I’m looking forward to using both old and new pieces to put together chic yet work-appropriate ensembles. I’m shopping for neutral-toned classic pieces that have a bit of a twist (I love a little sparkle, a pop of red and a lot of leather) and promise versatility. The final add-on? Red lipstick—once I convince myself that I too can pull it off. Wish me luck!
