I don't buy much any more.   I have learned from my Parisian friend Philippine not to get too caught up in trends, to invest in classic, quality pieces that will last for years, and to stick with what works for my body.  

But every season, there are a few things that I invest in that will update my wardrobe, without breaking any of Philippine's rules.  Last fall it was a velvet suit and a set of velvet pajamas for evening.  

This fall, it's a three piece suit (easier said than found), a pair of boots that lean into the cowboy boot trend without being overtly western, and a dramatic gold ring.  

I've been doing my research.  Here are the top contenders.
