The One Hundred: A Guide to the Pieces Every Stylish Women Must Own by Nina Garcia is a wonderful and quick read. Nina lists the must-haves that every stylista should or does own. My favs were the iPod (with lists of must-have songs), animal print (only wear one piece at a time), Hermes scarves, trench, peacoat, the pencil skirt, denim jacket and wide-leg trousers. Then there are the things that I must obtain: tuxedo jacket, men's white button-up shirt (no pearl or covered buttons), ankle booties, a nice pair of aviators (I'm thinking Dolce & Gabbana or Cartier), gloves, gentlemen's hat, leather pants, spanx and wayfarers.
This list really does let you know what pieces will last forever, pieces that are not trendy but classic. You will always find something to wear with Nina's One Hundred list!
It's good to know that I've already got a good headstart to this stylish list!
Remember every lady needs that great LBD but you also need a great Little White Dress for the after Labor Day days, when you feel like breaking all the rules and showing it to the world.
You have to love the fun facts that Nina throws in. Like the polo shirt and how LaCosta got the little crocodile idea (from a tennis player).
