Every once in awhile I’ll toss the phrase, “investment piece” around, but what exactly does this mean? Well, for me it means something that I’ve spent a whole lotta cash on (to be blunt), which I intend to get a ton of wear out of. One example of an investment piece which I recently acquired is this lightweight jacket by Isabel Marant Etoile.
Except for perhaps my leather jacket, I rarely wear blazers or jackets, for some reason. I was actually going to send this jacket back when I got it. You see, I thought I couldn’t pull it off; I thought that one had to be smallish and petite to be able to wear a cropped blazer. I even repackaged the jacket, ready to drop it off at the post office when I decided to try it on…one more time. And I’m glad I did! I tried it on with dresses and with jeans, and I loved it.
I love how the jacket makes me feel like a chic Parisian. Yes, even while wearing my Birkenstocks.
What kinds of “investment pieces” do you wear?
