Get the French wardrobe

This is a goal in progress...

I'm a classic elegance kinda girl, so naturally, when it comes to building the perfect wardrobe, I aim for the timeless French style. Black and red, navy and white. So far, this is what I've managed to achieve:

A black dress: this is not The LBD yet, just a simple A-line dress with a fantastic cut, that I can wear both for the office and for a night out. I found it in a second hand store that sells brand new pieces, as well.

A pair of black shorts: well, this one was actually a mistake. I was so desperate to have a pair of shorts I could wear to the city, that I completely ignored, that it was not the right fit. Usually, I don't do things like that, so that just further proves my desperation. Actually, I could totally ignore this item and leave it off my list of acquisitions, as I practically never wear it.

3 red tops: I was so desperate to have something red, that now I have 3 red tops. Unfortunately, they're all long-sleeved, so now I need a red T-shirt and I really wouldn't mind a red skirt either. Or a pair of red shoes. Or leather gloves.

2 sailor striped tops: I used to have a navy-and-white striped pull, and I'd love to have one again. Well, these 2 are not pulls, just a long and a short-sleeved top, but I'm very very happy with them. I love wearing them with my vintage burnt orange pleated muslin skirt.

So far, so good...
