One of the speakers was Cosmopolitan Magazine (PH) Fashion Director Donna Cuna-Pita. Being a mom herself, Donna shared 5 closet staples that every mommy must have:
5. The little black dress (LBD)
Every mom, well every woman, should have an LBD in her closet. It's our go-to dress especially for sudden occasions. The LBD goes well with both heels and flats. Just make sure that you choose a dress depending on your own body type.
4. Good fitting pants
We all know how hard it is to find good fitting pants. Donna advises that if we find one, buy two pairs. Why? Because chances are, we will use it often.
3. A good set of underwear
When was the last time you bought a new set? Hopefully it wasn't during your last pregnancy. When choosing panties, go for the plain old cotton panties - preferably in beige or nude color. Black or white can usually be seen through your clothes' fabric. And don't get the lacy ones, unwanted adipose might bulge out.
2. All-purpose bag
You know us moms, we bring everything but the kitchen sink. Mommies should have an all purpose bag that we can grab and go. Choose a bag that you can use for several occasions, be it for a play date or a lunch date with your amigas. (UPDATE: it doesn't have to be a LV Neverfull. It's just something I want to have.)
1. A crisp white top
Donna suggests that we invest on a wrinkle-resistant crisp white top. Like the LBD, it would go with anything. Plus, it provides for a classic look.
Do you have everything on Donna's list or would you like to add something to it? Please, do tell. I'd love to hear from you.
