I’m not quite sure where to begin. I’ve read some things, a lot of things actually, but no source gave me any information that I could use; so in true Taniqua fashion, I’m creating my own process. My first step? Dreaming. Considering my “perfect” wardrobe. For me, its not so much about a specific style of dress but characteristics of my clothes. First things first, it absolutely has to be quality. Longevity is everything to me. The rest of my requirements, I’ve complied in a nicely numbered list, because I can’t think of artistic ways to express these thoughts.
In my new wardrobe, a lack of these elements will NOT be tolerated. Each piece of clothing I own (or will own) must possess each and every one of these qualities.
Based on some intense scholarly research—okay okay maybe it was only 30 minutes on Google, but hey, same difference right?—I’ve decided to compile a list of wardrobe essentials. Its sort of like a blueprint before the building of a great house. I will establish the building blocks of my “perfect” wardrobe. Without a strong foundation, the house will fall, so this step is imperative.
