Vick's picks

One of the reasons I love my friend Vicki's style is that it validates my own.  She worked in the fashion industry for years (for Ralph Lauren Purple Label, ETRO, Chloe...) so when we end up wearing almost identical outfits I'm like "Yes!  I knew this was cute!"  Now as a mother of two she helps people fine tune their wardrobes as Vicki Cohen - Style Hunter.  I asked her to give me her list of must haves for every closet.  This reads exactly like my own list but it has credibility because Vicki wrote it and she is a bonafide expert.

The Lady Pieces
Navy blazer
White button down shirt
Pencil skirt
Black suit/tuxedo jacket
Ballet flat
Black high heel pump
Wide legged trouser
Knee high riding boot
Tailored wool coat
Colorful clutch

The Everyday Basics
Skinny jeans
Flared jeans
Motorcycle jacket
Ankle boots
Loose fitting white tees
Swingy crew neck sweater
Pottery Barn Kids backpack Big statement bag

I am adding to this a Breton striped shirt, a grandpa cardigan and Converse.

Thanks Vicki!  Keep on bringing it as the most stylish mom at pick up!



  1. Holy Guacamole. Seriously, for two seconds I thought that was you Dum. You guys could be idents in that photo if your hair was still light. I'm mos def going to make sure I have all of these goodies in my closet.


    p.s. I saw her in person and she was 100% as fabulous in the flesh. I love you Vicki

  2. I LOVE this list! Time to shop for missing items. Vegas?


  3. Noods, she is the business! Buy everything she says.

  4. The only thing that I think is missing from that list are purple Swarovski crystal encrusted 6" heeled booties, don't you think?
