Crew // Pants by Michael Kors // Purse by Fendi

Politiquette Tip: Shopping your closet can be one of the best ways to find an outfit you never knew you had.  With only one new item, the J. Crew cami, I was able to put this entire outfit together from my closet.

Politiquette Tip: If you want to wear open-toed shoes and no tights during the winter, you should try an air-brush spray to make legs look flawless.  My favorite, which comes in multiple shades, can be purchased at your local pharmacy.  I use the Sally Hansen air-brush spray.  I like this one because it washes away immediately.

Politiquette Tip: Something as simple as changes the laces in the shoes you buy, can make them look much fancier.  I hated the thick laces in the silver brogues I purchased from Zara, it made took away from the chicness of the shoe.  I purchased simple, dress laces and the look of the shoe changed instantly.  This is a very easy and cost-effective solution.
