#LiLT Blog Back To Basics – The Dream Wardrobe Checklist


Image Stylizmo blog

Ok! As some of you may have read, I recently had a wardrobe detox and I am now ready to start building my dream wardrobe, by bringing in thought-out, versatile “must-have” pieces that I can mix and match for work, rest and play!

I’m really looking forward to my little style journey, I think it is the perfect opportunity to document my new pieces and outfits and hopefully get some of you readers involved as well!

 I will be documenting a way to style my new garments every Friday here on LiLT Blog, and will also be posting pics over on Instagram using the hashtag #liltblogbacktobasics

So if you’re keen to play along, make sure you’re following me on Instagram, I would love to see your take on styling each weeks item!

  • Luci! This is such an excellent list! I immediately want to make recommendations on EVERYTHING. (Except booties, I’m no good with booties). I will limit myself to two: on comfy, non-VPL undies, I am obsessed with the Jockey ‘no panty line promise’ range (stocked in Myer and DJs) – they have a seamless edge (no VPL and a little strip of silicon on the outer edge so they stay in place! GENIUS. Definitely a sublime find. On cashmere – I love Club Monaco. They still don’t ship direct to Aus but they always have a great range and good sales!! I can’t wait to see what you buy!!!

    • Luciana

      These are great suggestions Andrea! Love them all! I’m definitely going to give the Jockey range a go!

      Thanks for your comments! Would love for you to play along with the #liltblogbacktobasics hashtag on instagram 🙂
