71. What’s the first “investment” item you bought? Do you still own or wear it?
Pair of leather Frye engineer boots. Still have them. Great investment. Got them re-soled. I'll probably have these boots for life, they were worth it. They look better every year.
Stiletto ankle boots, but I do not wear them.
i wear my jacket.
I don't have precious items lik that.
A mink coat,
Cotton shirts, they are a must.
A wrap silk skirt for 90 dollars. I wore it all the time this summer.
that rick owens dress, probably. it's black and minimal. i can still resell it at any time.
I bought expensive Italian knee-height 'riding style' boots when I finished school - over 20 years ago. They were incredibly expensive at the time, but i still have them! I've resoled them several times, and since they are a classic they don't look out of style.
I haven't really considered clothes in this way. But I do own some expensive pieces that I take good care of and preserve so that I can continue wearing them in the future.
My current coat. Yes
Also my swimsuit, it's made of recycled ocean plastic and costs a lot
Yes my beautiful shoe
I bought a pair of Gap jeans when I was 18 years old. Dark wash, straight leg, mid-rise. They were either $60 or $70, and it was by far the most expensive piece of clothing I'd ever purchased because I was raised very poor.
I don't own them and I don't really know what happened to them. I think I actually wore them all the way out.
A Lulu Guinness handbag. Still have it, still use it and love it.
My Jaeger coat. I bought it quite a few years ago. It's a long black wool coat with a belt tie, and it's the warmest yet chicest looking thing. It gets so many compliments and it goes with everything. It's gotten me through many winters and I love it. If I had the money, and it got damaged, I wouldn't hesitate to replace it.
