investing in classics

There's something about getting older (and hopefully a little wiser) that makes you want to invest in items which still stand the test of time over cheap-trend led pieces. Don't get me wrong: I still pick up the odd piece from Zara or Topshop to pep up my wardrobe. But I don't really love those items. Not in the way I do when I dream of a beautiful designer piece for months before finally deciding to invest in it. And these don't have to be pieces which are particularly striking; in fact they are often utterly, beautifully simple.

So it is with this divine Saint Laurent bag. Nothing very eye-catching about it: it's a simple black tote bag. But I still fell totally in love with it. And I know that I'll be using it forever.

The boots were a slightly different story, in that I immediately had to have them (well, you can't hang around with the Outnet anyway: pieces sell out straightaway). But I've always been partial to a good patent boot, so I'm sure these will prove just as timeless for me. (A word of caution if you do snap these up: don't believe the Outnet's US to UK shoe size guide - look it up elsewhere.)

Sometimes, the cost per wear equation really does make more sense and honestly, I'll be wearing these beauties a hundred times more than any high street piece.
