Fashion 101 | Investment Pieces

Investment pieces can range from that studded Burberry trench coat, those glitter Miu Miu booties EVERYONE had to have a couple years ago, the quilted Chanel bag... The list goes on.

But which pieces do you splurge for? Can you resell them? Which ones do you keep?

Personally, I am described by the line in "Fashion Killa" by A$AP Rocky:

"And Versace: got a lot, but she may never wear it
But she save it so our babies will be flyer than their parents"

I save all my investment and iconic fashion pieces for my hopes that when I have a daughter, she will raid my closet and I can pass down those pieces so she can live life in them like I have!

Iconic fashion pieces are always good to splurge on, if you are financially able and if you are building a fashion collection.

I limit myself to 1 fashion investment per season, and 3 trend pieces per season. The trend pieces I purchase are budget friendly, and I usually purchase them from H&M, Free People or French Connection.

eBay is a great place to buy pieces from Fashion Collaborations from years past that you can no longer find. So of course, think of this when you are purchasing items. Will people be looking for these Missoni for Target dresses in a year? Should I buy it?

Always go for those special, one of a kind pieces when you are shopping. You are unlikely to find these again, and they can go for a pretty penny on eBay or fashion reseller sites.

It is known that accessories and shoes re-sell for a higher price over time and keep their value.

Keep all the packaging, take care of your investment pieces if you are a reseller. If you are 100% sure that you are keeping your investment piece, keep it out and show it off! You deserve it.

A couple of my Investment Pieces are:

Chanel Quilted Jacket from my Nanny
Studded Christian Louboutin Booties
Manolo Blahnik Hangisi in Blue
Prada Baroque Sunglasses in Black
