a good wardrobe is made up of a lot of basics and staple pieces, but also of some interesting pieces. this shirt is one of those. it is something i would not normally be able to own, seeing as it was almost $200. luckily for me, it is something sold at akari, so i get a discount. on top of that, i have gift cards for being such a rad employee, so i only had to pay $12 for it. there are multiple ways to wear it (there may be a video somewhere..) and the leather belt is detachable. i am sure i will be able to get my money's worth.
as for those basics, everyone needs a great pair of black jeans and these j brand ones are amazing (my fav denim brand). and everyone must have a few blazers. this is my first brown one i have owned. it may be a staple in a wardrobe, but this one is far from ordinary. it is vintage vintage vintage! it is linen with some very cool diamond buttons. the coolest things i own come from places far away from the mall. this jacket was one of the very cool donations from northstar vintage to swap maine and i was lucky enough to score it! i live for things that are different and have a story. every good wardrobe should be able to share your story.
