Black and White Basics

Spring cleaning! Spring’s arrival has set a serious closet overhaul in motion for me. I’ve fallen in love all over again with several old favorites and have said goodbye to other items that reflect my fashion past. In the process, I’ve been able to identify closet basics that I still need or need to update. My black blazer, for example, is beginning to look dated because of its 3-button style. I’m considering, then, replacing it with a 1-button style like this Vince Camuto blazer.

I’ve been so attached to my old blazer that I decided to give it one last run before donating it. A tad silly, I know. By the way, check out this blast from the Economy of Style past—same blazer worn in 2008.
