In my closet, there are investment wardrobe pieces that keep getting better year after year. They are also some of my favorite accessories such as a Yves St. Laurent Bone Handled bag, Chanel Ballet Flats, a Leather Motorcycle Jacket, and a Quilted Leather Chanel Shoulder Bag.
Today we have Fall Fashion Accessories with Style mavens: Cindy, Annie, Brenda, and Tania. Their links are at the end of the post.
Things To Remember When Buying Investment Wardrobe Pieces
- Buy A Luxury Item To Mark An Occasion: These investment pieces will remind you of some of those celebrations.
- The accessories can be handed down to your nearest and dearest (I’ve had requests 🙂
- Also, if you want to buy something French or Italian. Consider getting it while in Europe. It’s usually less and you can get the VAT tax back at the airport (around 10%)
- These are investment pieces. Take care of them. I know I don’t need to tell you that.
Yves Saint Laurent Bone Handled Crescent Bag
I bought this YSL bag years ago on sale in Paris. Here is one on eBay. I always get compliments on it.
The dress is by Max Mara. It was purchased in Rome last summer and was much less than it is in the US. ( I am wearing an 8 and had it shortened a bit). I’ve worn it six or seven times already.
I got caught in a rainstorm here in Florida recently and I actually took the flats off and walked barefoot to the car 🙂 Back to the comment about taking care of your investment! Similar flats for less.
I bought this leather biker jacket at Neiman Marcus 10 years ago when we were moving to San Francisco. It keeps getting softer.
Neiman Marcus actually shortened the sleeves for me …which I thought wasn’t possible due to the zippers…but they did! And it is still available.
I’ve stopped saving this bag for special occasions since life is short!
This bag has tripled in price since Howard and I bought it when we lived in Paris 20 years ago. So wouldn’t you say it keeps getting better and better?
Let’s see what my friends are recommending for Fall…
