There are people of the mindset that investment purchases entail only the big purchases in life such as cars, houses, etc. There are others, aka fashionistas, who claim that the $850 Christian Louboutin pumps will last forever, or the $2700 Gucci bag will always be in style because they are “classics”. I’ve always lusted after such designer items, but know myself far too well to invest $850 on shoes, because no amount of re-soling and repair will prevent the damage from driving, running around on job sites, etc. They would never be on my feet as they would always be in for repairs; they’re shoes people, not a car…That’s not to say that I will not eventually break down and buy those classic black pointy-toe Louboutins that will last because I’ll only break them out for special events, but at that rate am I really getting my monies worth?
I have come around on bags, however, and have begun my search for a Classic Chanel bag. I know I will carry it on and off FOREVER, and I know this due to the many relatively inexpensive black bags I’ve purchased in my lifetime. The Chanel is one of many lust worthy investment pieces on my list and most recently I dove in head first and knocked one item off the list, a Hartmann carry-on. At 50% off with a 10 year warranty how could I say no when I’m now traveling thousands of miles a month for work.
The top 3 investment items still on my list. What are you investing in?
I hope everyone is having a fabulous week!
