It's Time to Invest.
We love trends. No secret there. We love them for the immediate freshness they add to an old outfit. Like when we wore white Stuart Weitzman mules with a super old (basically vintage) DVF dress, the look instantly felt updated and new. But trends come and go, so in terms of how much effort we put into them when building our closets, we would say not much. It’s the pieces we invest in that excercise serious amounts of time and brainpower. For investment-worthy pieces we look for quality materials, strong craftsmanship, and most importantly style staying power. Only if a piece has those three qualities are we willing to make the investment. The tried and true way to know if an investment is worth it? Save for it first and if you still want the piece once you can pay for it then you know it’s true love.
Here are the pieces we, and our amazing community, have invested in for all of us to share…and a few investments we have our eye on.
Suiting. Not like lawyer-stuck-in-cubicle suiting. We’re talking chi-chi-chic Kathryn Hepburn type suiting. A good blazer goes. with. everything. It also adds immediate polish to any look. And if you have matching suit pants, thats a huge bonus and the look can be worn with sneakers or pumps. Lately, whenever we need suit inspo we turn to Blake Lively, she nails it every time.
