No matter your finances everyone should base their wardrobe off of staple/statement pieces. Using this method will expand your wardrobe providing you with multiple options and looks. In short, creating the illusion of a larger wardrobe.
Staple/statement pieces are (but not limited to):
- Women; bags, shoes, jacket/blazer and accessories.
- Men; shoes, jacket/blazer, belts and hats.
- You can take your normal everyday jean and tank or t-shirt to the next level by adding a blazer and an after 5 shoe and go to dinner, meeting or even a date!
And if you’re accident prone don’t worry I have some remedies that will assist you along the way to keep your staple/statement pieces in tact to maintain that pristine condition:
I’m a vegan, and I incorporate that into my work [by trying] to use natural, effective remedies
- WATER + VODKA
If you place these two simple agents into a spray bottle, you have an at-home dry cleaning service. It deodorizes the garments.
- BAKING SODA + DISTILLED WHITE VINEGAR
These two agents assist me with the removal of a wide range of stains on most fabrics.
Great for food grease and can be used on leather, silk or other delicate fabrics.
- HYDROGEN PEROXIDE
Works well on organic stains such as wine, chocolate, grass, blood or—what I use it most for—armpit sweat.
Treatment is just as important because you do not want to push the stain further into the fabric. [For] food stains, use the edge of a dull butter knife to gently remove residual food without rubbing the stain. [For] liquid stains, be careful not to rub the stain; simply blot it with a dry cloth, then attempt stain removal.
