    the Essentials: F is for “Flats” in the nude

    Nina G. says ballet flats are timeless, chic and more importantly, for us practical 9to5ers, comfortable. win-win! how i work it: those flats are like Lays Potato Chips – i can’t just have one! i opted for 9west flats with a bit of a pointy toe in black, nude, and brown. these nude pair have walked me to work many a spring/summer day. because they are nude, they work with just about everything. i sometimes skip the heels and keep these on all day and into the weekend.  high-five for comfort! me how many pairs do you own?

This time I’m looking at the list of must-haves and focusing on pieces that workwear worthy. So my list will be a lot shorter and I may add my own items. hope you will enjoy my take on the One Hundred (more like 30ish) pieces every working girl should own…
