Take for example the $100 pair of ponte knit black pants that I purchased in the fall of 2010.
I wear these pants at least 3 times each and every week.
They are so versatile and more to my liking they are comfortable, machine washable, hang to dry, retain their shape and so far, retain their crisp black hue.

All I need to do is to choose a variety of different tops to change up the look and keep it fresh.
Silky rayon cotton blend tunic top
I do not feel that I need to have a huge wardrobe....in fact too many choices stress me out.
I find it difficult to decide what to wear when there are too many garments hanging in my closet.
My closet here in the Humble Bungalow is very tiny so it is best that I don't overstock.

which fits small so I had to go up 2 sizes...ugh!

Bold unusual ethnic

as a Spring fashion
while I do not ascribe to trends per say
I do admire and collect different pieces that speak to me.
Holidays are a great time to source out interesting and fun pieces.
They are not too usually too bulky to pop into a suitcase or better yet wear them home!
I bought this necklace at a local Cancer fundraising silent auction many months ago.

Coco Chanel's influence
affects me here today
in the Humble Bungalow.
I had the opportunity to try on a Chanel tweed jacket in local high end consignment store.
It would have been a perfect partner for my black pants or jeans
I was completely gob smacked by the quality of construction and the luxe fabric
details, details it's all in the detail
subtle Chanel buttons
ragged tweedy bits jutting out at the cuffs
embossed with "Chanel" on the champagne toned silk lining
wearing it made me feel posh
Posh in a good way, not in a snobby way
the smile of knowing one has such a garment
without screaming crass
I did not get the jacket
it was too snug
Time to shop my closet...

The CPW is higher
currently at around $10
it will be around for many years to come
so the CPW will decrease.
