DD's Style File - Classic Sophisticate

Hey divas! I've been off the radar for a minute, the lack of posts was due to a combination of a short vacation and pure-dee exhaustion, but I'm here now and trying to get back into the swing of things...

Today I paired my cream and navy asymmetric striped blouse with a chic taupe pencil skirt and red and white sandals. I can't even tell you how much love I've got for this skirt! I also bought it in pink and blue (you can get it here and it's currently on sale). The shape is feminine and, dare I say - sexy. It is a true "wiggle" skirt, because it's tighter around the knees, but the ponte material holds it's shape very well and doesn't get baggy around the knee area from sitting and walking (like skirts I've purchased from other retailers...*cough*....TopShop).

Cream & navy striped top - The Limited
Taupe pencil skirt - Express
Red & white sandals - ALDO
Handbag - Coach
Gold & taupe woven bracelet - The Limited
Red patent belt - Unknown
Sunnies - Nine West

The blouse has a really boxy shape, which doesn't work on me, so tucking in is a must. I've had the sandals for several seasons and find reasons to pull them out every now and again. And yes, I have this Coach bag in pale coral too. I know, I know....not a necessity, but I love the shape and size of this bag. 

If you haven't caught on yet, I tend to have a bit of a problem when I like stuff....I buy it in multiples. But I swear, I'm not a hoarder!

I can't be the only one who buys multiples, any of you want to own up to your addiction?? I don't judge!
