Tank: AA, Jeans: Delia's, Boots: GUESS

I hope everyone (in the U.S.A.) voted today!

So this is my first entry into Chictopia's Back to Basics contest for November.

I've always admired girls (or boys!) who can wear only basics and still look amazing.
I mean its easy to say you're wearing basics while wearing an amazing Rick Owens leather jacket over a tee and an A. Wang skirt, but those kinds of basics would make anyone look good.
I'm more impressed by the girl who can wear a cheap t-shirt from Target and a pair of old torn up shorts or just a plain black sheath with no accessories and still look better than her friend decked out in head to toe Gucci.
Admittedly, someone like that was probably just born with that "it" quality. But I think it has a lot more to do with really knowing what works for you and your body than just being genetically gifted.
