A couple of the things that I value most when it comes to fashion are timelessness, comfort, quality, femininity, individuality and minimalistic elegance. As a natural result of a human being making personal developments and growing up, my style changed a lot over the years (to say the least). I sold many of my old clothes since they absolutely did not attract me anymore. I actually could not believe I liked them back in time. However, there are some items that I have kept. Those are the timeless ones and they all happen to have a plain color and to be made of high-quality fabrics. I only purchase this type of fashion items nowadays. I call them investments: they usually have got a bigger price tag but if you measure price in 'price per wear' they appear to be not that expensive at all. So you need to make an upfront cost that is higher than usual, but it pays off in the end. It is simply a shift in revenue and expenditure, so to speak. And if you do not agree on this, please blame my background in financial business economics for stating such quotes.. Anyway, the outfit that I wore yesterday during holiday shopping perfectly illustrates the story I wrote above. The look consists of items that I recently bought but I know for sure I will still wear them a year from now. And the best thing is.. The chelsea boots - which are my current favorites - do not even have a great price tag, which proves that high-quality not always goes hand in hand with a ultra-high price!
