” The way we live now is edging towards a more sustainable pace in which we aime to buy less, but better. “
I can’t agree more with this statement from Navaz Batliwalla’s book “The New Garçonne, How to be a Gentlewoman.” (btw. I just started reading this truly inspiring book). I am lucky to regularly receive clothing, accessories and beauty products that I do not need to shop anymore. Nonetheless, as a fashion addict fascinated by aesthetics, I will still occasionally splurge on “investment pieces” which I trust to enjoy wearing over several years. I am picky though. Everything lies in the details: undisputable quality and finish, and a design that stands out.
The reason I am talking about this consumption dilemma is because my birthday is just round the corner. I have saved up enough to spoil myself with the “dream” bag that I’ve been wanting for years. At the same time, my other inner voice asks if it is really a wise buy. Well, I share here my wish-list that consists mostly of designs (some I have already featured), and that will happily find place in my timeless-wardrobe. Also, more than just material things, I find myself seeking out lately for exceptional experiences.
- Gucci Dionysus bag,
J.W. Anderson Logo Purse
- Chanel pearl brooch
A friend was wearing a Chanel brooch over a simple black top – it made the difference. I prefer the all-in-pearl models (mostly second-hand pieces).
- Stella McCartney Elyse shoes
- Luv AJ Mini Croos hoops
Why haven’t I ordered them instead of useless stuffs.
- Ray-Ban hexagonal sunglasses
- Eli-O rings
A young Swiss designer I recently discovered and am obsessed with – check her out !
- A full-frame camera
I still can’t decide what model to take.
