67. Looking back at all your purchases over the past five to fifteen years, can you generalize about what sorts of things were the most valuable to buy?
Good quality shoes, coats, jackets, and bags. High-quality basics like my oversized Brooks Brothers button-up from the thrift store. Truly stood the test of time. Most of the other stuff is fast fashion and currently falling apart if it hasn't already.
Great dresses for different occasions
I learned in the past few years to actually buy what I need.
Probably lingerie, I love it.
i buy warm clothing on the top and cold/warm clothing on the bottom.
Leather boots. Wool coats, cotton shirts, scarves.
Shoes, trousers, pullovers.
Natural fiber shirts.-- can't beat a silk top for 5 dollars at goodwill. I wore it to weddings, so it was a win.
my blundstone boots. worn every day working in landscaping, and also my most professional office shoes.
When I didn't 'settle' for an item, but was happy with it from the start. Something that was simple and classic but not too 'basic', so that it felt special to wear.
I can't remember most of my purchases during that time frame.
My wedding dress.
Coats, they last and cost more
A couples of my bags and shoes
Really high-quality shoes never disappoint. Go to the designer outlet mall and try on expensive shoes to find a pair that really fits.
I was given a leather jacket for Chrismas that was much too big for me. I wore it for a year or two but I hated it. So when I had the Money I went to a Tailor who is specialized in leather garments and I ordered a bespoke leather jacket. Back then it costed 1.800 Deutsch-Marks or about US-$1.000. I still have it and I wear it, when I need to feel confident or good Looking. I like this jacket very much. It has a blue lining inside, which make it look Special.
Coats - they are the one thing that I have spent more money on and not regretted it, and have kept them.
