I could see Pablo in these too ............
I am like you shoes, very fair skin so whites, creams and taupes wash me out completely. I suit warm colours - reds, browns, aubergine, charcoal, black.
I tend to wear fitted black or dark coloured shift dresses for work with mid heel boot or shoe. I have been collecting Hermes scarves for many years - usually get them for birthday / Crimbo so I jazz the dresses up with a nice scarf and a little cropped cardie or shrug. The dresses themselves are not expensive. I also have two plain DVF wrap dresses which I bought years ago and wear now and again.
My favourite staples are by Marccain. These clothes are so well made and beautifully cut; they wash up like new every time. I have two black polo necks which were expensive when bought and I reckon they have been in the washing machine ~100 times and still like new.
I also love Joseph knitwear, Whistles and Malene Birger for little dresses, jackets and skirts.
Out of work I tend to live in skinny jeans, knee high boots or ballerina shoes depending on weather and custo or pucci style tops, layered knitwear or a fitted jacket.
Whenever I buy something I always stick to classic styles instead of trending items - no harem pants, jumpsuits or similar. I tend to get many years out my clothes so even though they cost in the beginning, I get my money's worth. I am still wearing pieces I bought 7 or 8 or even 10 years ago.
I only buy what I really like. I steer clear of clothes sales because invariably I end up buying stuff I will not wear because it is a bargain. In the sales I look out for cashmere sweaters / cardigans, leather gloves / scarves, costume jewellery and mac coats.
I also like you Shoes have quite a shoe collection which I really take care of. (love all your pics) I get my boots and shoes re-heeled and the soles re-tipped before they are worn down. Most high street shoes don't do my size because my feet are very tiny and narrow. I did ballet for many years and think it stopped them growing bigger?
Some pics of bits and pieces below. Not me in the dress btw!

All I'll say is that I walked into what looked like a very staid pigiama shop today and boy, did they have some interesting "outfits" round the back! Now I know why they put all the flanelette stuff in the window
The scarf is beautiful, you clearly have very good taste, it also helps being so slim, when I was skinny I could wear anything now I have to be extremely careful.
Like the boots too, I am NOW a great believer in less is more, but I havenīt always been like that, I used to go to the sales and go mad, the latest style, the latest colour, but now I prefer to be a bit more selective, like the Jeans I bought last week, which will go with so much and look good with boots or shoes and hopefully still be with me in 5 years time.
