The best piece of advice I would give is buy a little black dress - no not one of those strapless minis you wear to parties and events. I'm talking a practical LBD, one you can wear on a day to day basis. I found my LBD soulmate at David Jones and I wasn't even looking! One of the best investments you could make - it's like a blank canvas that you can do absolutely anything with. I'm already thinking up new ways to wear it so expect it to make appearances here more often (perhaps I should start a 101 ways to wear a LBD blog?). Not to mention it's a saviour for those days where you just can't seem find anything to wear (despite having an overflowing wardrobe).
The Rag & Bone cardi was one of my big purchases from Japan and I've been resisting the urge not to wear it everyday. I have to say it does come in handy when the afternoon chill kicks in but not at the expensive of having to carry it around all day. The Rag & Bone store in Omotesando was absolute bliss - I would have bought everything there if I could. Consider them officially added to my favourite labels list (joining the ranks of Alexander Wang and Acne).
Funny side story about this outfit - well not exactly funny but I did receive some compliments (one about the necklace, the other about the hat) from random strangers. Don't you just love when people stop you on the street to ask where you bought something? It means you must be doing something right :)
