I find that when I’m out shopping with my girlfriends, and they say “Oh, but you’ll have it forever,” it’s usually not true. I am guilty of saying it myself, but how many things do you actually hold onto forever? Maybe a really great designer bag, a pair of shoes that you can get re-soled every year… or a piece of furniture or jewelry.. but really, these days, things just aren’t made to last forever. Am I right? Let’s ban that statement for a bit, shall we? Along those lines, I won’t say that you’ll actually have these pieces forever (maybe the Manolos?) but you will certainly wear them for a very long time, until they fall apart. Cozy waffle knit cashmere, the necklace that broke Pinterest, the ultimate suede heels, and the prettiest champagne silk dress, I could go on… (the belt you can wear over everything from coats to jumpsuits to dresses?) These babies will earn their cost per wear.
(It’s worth noting that I’ve been wearing Ariel Gordon’s pearl ear jackets for the past week straight. They’re perfect.)
