Ten Items Every Ambitious Woman Needs in Her Closet

As I shared last week, I started working with wardrobe stylist, Andrea Faye, to help define my style. After doing a closet cleanse, I had only a few clothing items in my closet. So my homework assignment was to go shopping and start rebuilding my wardrobe.

For some women, shopping comes easy. For me, not so much. So, Andrea created an itemized list of items that I needed to buy. She was also super kind and made herself available while I was shopping. As I was trying on clothes, I texted her videos of the different options and she told me which ones to purchase.

In order to rebuild my very bare closet, I will need to buy quite a few items. Which takes a lot of time…and money. To not get overwhelmed, and to not blow through my bank account in one shopping spree, Andrea suggested that I slowly add pieces to my closet over the next twelve months. Beginning with key staple items that every boss should have in her closet.

This is me and Wanda Wallis at a recent Walnut Creek Socialites event. She is one of my style icons! Always classy, modern yet timeless, and chic.

I gave myself $500 to spend and went to Express to buy the items that I didn’t already have in my closet. Here are the list of staple items that all bosses should have in their closet.
