Wednesday Wants: Timeless Pieces

For today's want list, I picked so-called investment pieces — well-tailored pieces that, while unique, are so classic in their silhouettes they won't get dated immediately when one season is over. The color palette is neutral, allowing endless mixing and matching with what is already in your closet and what isn't even there yet.

Timeless pieces are perfect for maintaining a stylish work wardrobe. My favorites are the Elizabeth & James Silk Shirt and the Burberry Tweed Dress!

Every time you think Burberry has hit the peak, they just get better, it's uncanny!

That Burberry vaguely reminds me of the dress Charlotte wore in the Sex and the City movie when she told Carrie she was pregnant. I never understood that dress, and kept trying to figure out if it was a dress over a blouse or just a dress with two different layers. Either way, I think I just like the dress by itself.

I really want those Louboutin boots. I would even take the ankle booties. Love the red heels against a black boot.
