71. What’s the first “investment” item you bought? Do you still own or wear it?
I still keep my first "grown-up girl" skirt from back when I was 15...it still fits but it's really ugly now ahahah.
My rose and skull dress, and of course, it's my special occasion and show dress. I'm wearing it tomorrow to go meet a guy :)
Gucci slip on kitten heels for my twin sister's wedding. I no longer own them, but got a lot of wear out of them afterwards.
I used my first paycheck ever to by a turquoise leather Michael Kors handbag with silver hardwear and big silver leather stitching. I was like, 14. It's still in my closet at home. I don't use it, because it is wildly impractical for my life- it doesn't fit over my shoulder, so I'd have to carry it by hand, which I hate, it doesn't have a zip-top, so stuff can fall out, it is so delicate in color and texture I'd be scared to use it in my urban life.
a winter coat which I still wear
A navy Max Mara coat, I bought it 24 years ago and still wear it.
A wind-breaker coat! I didn't have a proper coat for winter when i had moved to a northern city and it was a great investment i wear it everyday when the weather is cold, snowy or rainy! But it start to show sign of time and it lost his impermeability...
I once bought two expensive coats in one day but I love them both and still wear them every winter 4 years on.
My first investment buy was 7 years ago. I bought a red crossbody bag from Whyred. I was weaved leather and i still have it and wear it.
I don't really remember, but probably something from the Australian brand Bassike. I definitely still own and wear everything I own from this brand.
I've no idea. Maybe my 1920's black lace evening gown. Its my go-to for any fancy event I need to attend.
minimal everyday handbag, locally made from black leather
i do still wear it almost every day
My husband bought me a lamb leather trench coat for Christmas five years ago (from my list) and I wore it two weeks ago
Probably a woolen coat (aforementioned) in Venice 6 years ago. I love it, and it's still in good nick.
