I WANT a pair of black boots.
I NEED a pair of black flats.
I WANT a grey cardigan.
I NEED a mustard cardigan.
I WANT a skinny red belt.
I NEED a skinny black belt.
My husband seems to think I've gotten it wrong. "You don't NEED any of those things. You need food and water, but you don't need clothes." Uh... actually, yes. I would prefer not to walk around nekkid, thanks.
I think I'm pretty good. I only have it narrowed down to 3 things I absolutely NEED right now.
One is a mustard or yellow cardigan. I stupidly passed over the perfect mustard cardigan in the clearance section of Target a few months ago, in favor of a cream one.. and totally regret it. I remember thinking at the time, "I don't know what I'd wear with this mustard color... and plus, I'm Asian with a yellowish skin tone, so wearing any shade of yellow cannot be good."
After I passed it over (with regret), I began to notice when people wore that color, and even more so if they were Asian or had a similar skin tone. It actually complimented the color of their skin, and looked SO GOOD. See examples below:

Love love love! Now I'm on the hunt for the perfect mustard cardigan. Watch out, Black Friday sales!
