Justifying Multiples.

Have you ever had someone ask you an obvious question like: 
"Why do you need so many pumps?"or 
"Why do have three khaki skirts?"or 
"Why do you need four different black blazers??"

Well, my friends, the outfits below are case and point why we ladies need multiples.
3 Blazers= a gazillion completely different outfits!

And for anyone who needs more convincing: it's because you need a *certain* shoe/jacket/belt to go with a *certain* type of dress/skirt/pant-- that's why! ;)

sweater city.

I'm always a big proponent of variety in a wardrobe.
Unless it's a very basic wardrobe building block, it's way more fun to have stand-out pieces that are unique in their own way.  Given that I generally consider sweaters a main component of the mid-western Fall/Winter wardrobe, I'm usually not one to buy fancy or cool-looking sweaters.  But, boy have I been wrong!  Unique and gorgeous sweaters is seriously where it's at.  Just take a look at some of the ones below-- I love them!!

What do you think?  Are sweaters a "building block" of an outfit or do you like your sweaters to all be unique and different?
