Although celebrities are more than capable of buying the crème de la crème of designers’ pieces to stay not only up to date with the latest trends but also get the best staple pieces out there, stars have just as much difficulty saying their goodbyes to some closet favorites as we all do.
As my mother always suggested, “One purchase in means one purchase out.” Of course in terms of love this is should be the motto of a decent woman, but when it comes to a shopoholic, how does that suggestion even hold any sort of merit? It’s like saying you have to have dinner before you’re allowed to have dessert. Well, I like the freedom of enjoying my dessert before the main course like a 10 year-old would. And I’ll have a soy latte while I’m at it, thank you very much.

Want a statement piece that can add a kick to your outfit anytime anywhere? Sam Edelmen’s studded bootie is the perfect closet staple to permanently set some closet occupancy. Even better? It’s set at a reasonable price point to make your closet smile without making your credit card whimper.

Trends may come and go. But some pieces are always meant to stay. Like ice cream in the winter. I can still eat ice cream even in the chilly weather, as long as I have the scarf, cozy leg warmers, and a warm sweater, it’s still doable. Shop smart and savvy and know that a good closet investment can go for a good couple of miles. What’s controlling the pedal to the metal? Well, power lies in your stylin’ creativity!
