it’s the little things

16 Oct

Sometimes it’s the little details that make or break a purchase.  If you can’t decide between two similar objects, it’s some little detail about one or the other that makes it better, even if it will be unseen when you wear it– colorful piping on an inside seam, an engraved button, an embellished tag.

I went through the favorite details in my wardrobe and have some to share with you:

a contrasting stripe (and a shiny button)

What are some simple but pretty details in your wardrobe that you enjoy?

P.S. I found some tags that I really enjoy, but since tags can be removed without ruining the garment overall, I didn’t include them.  But I love cool tags.
