5 Piece French Wardrobe - #4

I did it. I took the plunge and purchased my fourth piece in my 5 Piece French Wardrobe for Spring. I have put careful thought and planning into this piece. That's the good thing about only buying a few new pieces each season, each must be thoughtfully considered.

I have been wanting a silky, creamy tie neck blouse for a while. I scouted all the usual sources and found one I liked at Urban. I stopped by the store twice, but they didn't have the exact on I wanted in the store. I'm the kind of person who likes to see items in person before I buy them. You just can't tell fit, fabric, or finish quality from an internet image. Sooo....when I saw this shirt from the Gap and received a 40% off coupon that pretty much sealed the deal.

I have an idea of what I want for my last piece. I'm looking for a silky, creamy blazer (do you see a trend here?). The good thing about the French Wardrobe challenge is that it forces me to not settle. Previous Kara might have bought three creamy blazers, before I found the right one. That's why I have five black pencil skirts and six blue striped button-ups. With only five purchases for the season, you can't use them all on the same type item, you have to hold out for the perfect piece and in the long run that makes for a better wardrobe.
