Those classics in your closet are must-haves, of course, but in their very classic'ness, they don't really make your heart sing. What does? Those crazy pieces you buy on impulse 'cuz they call your name and you can't wait to wear. Especially in the morning when faced with the what-shall-I-put-on-today dilemma. But the thing is, if you impulse well, these types of pieces can be surprisingly versatile. Like this Alberta Ferretti draped black-lace top. It's somewhat demure (a prim high neck), somewhat not (billowing open back) and completely fabulous - from any angle.
