Sprinkled throughout this post are catalogue shots from years past that I keep on my permanent mood board -- outfits that transcend trends and pop culture to be timeless capsules of style I want to emulate. When I am shopping, I'm looking for pieces that are classics with a bit of a twist....

How else are we supposed to expand our wardrobes and allow our styles to evolve if we don't wear items that fall outside our comfort zones? What's wrong with wearing something we know looks amazing and hoping that friends will dish out a few much-needed compliments? What fun is life if we...
