Lace Shorts and Investment Pieces

I’ve made no secret of my love of mixing designer pieces with budget friendly items from places like Forever 21, H&M, and Zara. I’d like to think this outfit is a good example of how investing in high quality basics, like these classic Valentino bow peep-toe heels, can help make high-street purchases look much nicer than their wallet friendly price tags would suggest. When thinking about investing in a luxury item, a simple black pump is a great place to start. By sticking to classic investment pieces you won’t have to regret that once fabulous Cherry Blossom Louis Vuitton bag in a few years time. A black pump on the other hand is one of the items that almost every women needs and can easily find a use for. It’s perfect for the office, a night out, or even for dressing up a simple pair of jeans. By regularly res-soling and re-heeling, you can ensure your investment will last for many years to come. By building your wardrobe one luxury piece at a time and taking care of those items, overtime you will collect gorgeous items that will last for years to come.
