Your classic statement pieces

Have you ever wondered if there was a guide to essentially "the top" fashion items that never go out of style and are worth the investment? Well, search no further! I recently discovered Nina Garcia's The One Hundred - A guide to the pieces every stylish woman must own and I fell in love. I could not put this book down! From sunglasses to investment bags to suits to sneakers this book has every name brand item and affordable alternatives you could imagine.

Nina Garcia gives you the confidence you need to try something new and be comfortable in your own clothes. I must admit I smiled when I read that a few items I own were written about in this book but it also opened my eyes to various designers and looks that I might not have thought were classic but truly are.

One of my favorite parts of the book was when she described cocktail rings, "a big vintage fake is even preferred" because you don't always need to shell out tons of money to feel and look glamorous. I think that accessories can say a lot but I am usually a minimalist so I should push myself to try layering bangles or every once in a while flaunt a huge cocktail ring!

These fabulous pieces are all under $20:
