Shirt dress and vintage denim jacket.

At the end of every Closet Audit I have a list of essential pieces that I give to my clients. While obviously the lists are not identical from to client to client, the same items do crop up. And they are all in this outfit–the shirt dress, the jean jacket, and the bootie.

  Coming up with new new looks to wear day after day can be a challenge even to the most sartorialy gifted. But, sometimes things are really that simple, but they don’t have to be boring. The shirt dress (easy to elevate or to dress down), I bought several years ago, at Cos, a brand (you can shop online or in Beverly Hills) that I mention often for it’s minimalist esthetic, where I never fail to find the ideal elevated basics.  The jean jacket, if you follow this blog you have seen me rock many times,is a really special piece (part of a men’s factory uniform from pre-WWII France), the military inspired booties (this is not necessarily the style I recommend for all, but I do always add a calf boot to the list) are ideal for lending an edge to clean-cut and feminine dresses.

I’ve been really into hoop earrings lately, I think I just missed wearing this style and they have been featured heavily on the runways since at least the Spring 2016 collections. These sterling hoops are from the 80s they are super simple and I love that about them! I left the statement making to the bracelets, the really chunky silver-tone Bartek bracelet is enough on its own, but why not add another strong piece to the equation, the sun and star motif link bracelet (I have a matching necklace too!) is fun and elegant.

If you struggle with putting looks together (this is the biggest challenge I hear from my clients), email to, info@styledbysashamaks to schedule a 20 minute complimentary phone consultation. From an at-home wardrobe edit, personal shopping, jewelry to virtual styling, I will tailor a session to your individual needs.

And we hope to see you Wednesday 16th at the Summer Pop UP + Archive Sale, RSVP here at Closet 1959. I’m excited to show my latest finds (lots of fab earrings!!), and I’ll be selling select pieces from my archive priced from $15-$85.
XO Sasha
