The older I get, the more I appreciate quality in my clothing. I know I feature a lot of fun trendy pieces at low prices most of the time on my blog, but I am sure you have noticed some pricier items in some of my looks. I have found that as much as I love shopping at fast fashion retailers, the core pieces in my wardrobe need to be quality investment pieces that stand the test of time. I don’t understand investing in trendy items as trends come and go, but I do understand investing in timeless apparel, such as a perfect fitting blazer, a great pair of jeans or a classic nude or black high heel.

My good friend Samantha of the blog Bonjour Blue recently launched her line Landing NYC and the moment I saw these pieces I couldn’t WAIT to share it with you guys. Landing is an American luxury clothing brand offering the highest quality domestically produced garments direct to its customers at fair prices!

As I am sure you have guessed, this gorgeous black cocktail dress is from her line and I am obsessed! This dress is such a staple in your wardrobe. Paired with a blazer on top you can wear it to the office and then take the blazer off and head to a black tie wedding. It is simple and classic and perfectly tailored. I couldn’t recommend her line more to you guys.

Check out the rest of Landing’s line here and the Kickstarter campaign here! Also, be on the lookout for more items from this gorgeous collection on my blog! Congrats Sam on an incredible line!
