Black Undergarments
There is something intensely orderly and devout about my belief in strictly black undergarments — it’s a lifestyle choice that I strongly encourage for all. The slightest peek of dark ornamentation through a sheer blouse only makes it that much better.

The Perfect Tee
Regardless of the color, the tee is the turning point to a well-supported wardrobe. Paired with a high waisted slim pant, or thrown amongst a feminine skirt, you can’t move to the next level of style without it. Find the perfect fit and buy it three times over in every color.

The Tailored Black Coat
If you’re wondering why finishing off a look is difficult to achieve, it’s because you’re lacking the perfectly tailored black coat. Fitted to your figure, and sitting at a flattering length, this coat can conceal or reveal wonders.

The White Silk Blouse
Straight out of the YSL handbook, the white silk blouse separates the girls from the women when it comes to dressing. It will soon become your second skin, in an effortless manner that people speak of as Je ne sais quoi.

The Slinky Black Dress
A woman’s figure is something brilliant to behold, more so in the presence of a SBD (Slinky Black Dress). Sexiness is everything from an attitude to a form-fitting garment. The SBD is key to feeding the fire that lights your confidence. Find one that does this for you, and never let it go.

The Chameleon Pant
This is your everyday. It’s what you throw on to go grab coffee, and what you dress up with heels. Its importance in your wardrobe is mighty. Search far and wide for this piece, make sure it’s fitted to your figure, and tailor the length to your lifestyle.

No woman ever found a black heel that didn’t make her stand a little taller. They are imperative.
