Owning a wardrobe that looks good on your shape and serves you well for any life event is golden. Which is why I have worked so hard to find versatile basics to wear in mild weather. Today I am showing how I continue to wear the basic crepe items on my shopping site.
Whatever your style or color preference, it is a good idea to have high-quality core pieces that you can dress up or down. A busy woman doesn’t want to waste a half-hour in her closet trying to decide what to wear each day.
Accessories can completely change the look of your basics, so I put a lot of thought into the ones I buy for the site. I want to offer you the highest quality items in classic styles because that is what I want for myself. (I am wearing a size medium 3/4 sleeve low neck top and the pants with the split at the ankle in size small.)
Let’s start with a very casual look to wear while lounging at home. If I needed to run a quick errand, I could throw on a lightweight cardigan. This tipped hem topper in turquoise is from Cali and York last year, and the black slip on sneakers are from Rockport. The classic quilted chain bag can be dressed up or down, which is why I am very fond of them. If I had only one bag, I would want it to be this style. You can find this and similar bags here.
To pull the look together, I tied a square satin scarf in bright colors including turquoise around the chain strap. My blue eyes are very sensitive to light, so I have a collection of sunglasses for every look. These are my casual Rayban Wayfarers.
The top and pants I am wearing in this post are all the same, but the shoes, toppers, and accessories change with each look. The basic crepe pieces including dresses, are available in brown, navy and black here. They are made in the USA. Machine wash in cold water. Hang to dry.
My all time favorite way to wear a large square scarf is folded in a triangle shape and draped across my shoulders. This look feels upgraded and elegant even over jeans and a tee. There are more than one hundred and twenty-five styles colors and sizes of scarves here.
The block heel shoes are by Sam Edelman. I am most comfortable in shoes with at least a bit of a heel. The sunglasses are by Oscar de la Renta. I always look for square glasses because my face is roundish.
The red cardigan below, is from Chico’s last year. Shorter jackets and tops that stop just below the hip look best on me. That is why I have sold most of the longer ones in the section Shop My Closet here on the site. The black, gray and white scarf is one of several styles found here in this very popular color combination.
A change of shoes and the addition of a glitzy black jacket by IC Collection via ShopMyFairLady.com and a smaller clutch bag and I am ready to attend a black tie fund raiser or opening night at the symphony. My Fair Lady will give you a 15% discount with the code Fall17.
These oversized cat-eye glasses by Balenciaga are my all time favorites. The minimalist dressy sandals are by Kenneth Cole Reaction. The bag is a few years old.
In all these photos I am wearing the lip color, Scarlet and eyeshadows from Beautycounter here.
Here is a short video showing how the clothes move and flow as you walk.

I am five feet six inches tall, and I weigh one hundred-forty-six pounds with an inverted triangle shape (which means my shoulders are the widest part of my body and I carry most of my weight above the waist). As always, I share what works for my shape and explain why in hopes that it helps you figure out what will look best on your shape and size.
