Something Cakes said...

I agree wholeheartedly.

I was going to write a big spiel noting each part of this post but I honestly don't need to!

You're exactly right, in my opinion!

if only i was a trust fund baby but style doesn't have to be expensive.

very nice post!

Grace said...

This is clever. I always find it better to invest in pieces that I will wear over and over than go crazy for the little trend bits that you will wear once -then its out of fashion.

I definitely agree, although, you can find REALLY great vintage coats for VERY inexpensive prices if you check out your local thrift store! quality + affordability <3

Melisande said...

yes yes yes! i fully agree. love the pieces you picked!

Ms. Mari said...

This post makes so much sense. I follow the same mantra as well when it comes to which items I spend more on. And since I don't follow fads all that much, they're sometimes out of style before I even knew they were in!

BRAD said...

OK, Froso - I think you may have left the sweetest comment EVER on my Blog: http://www.sprezza2raw.com/ ♥ I always knew I liked you for some reason! :-) :-)
♥ ya', Froso!
OK, now, with this Post → I like what you say about 'shoes' - Definitely buy the best that you can afford - They should probably be the most expensive items in anyone's wardrobe - They're worth it.

Agreed, I've gone through 6 pairs of Topshop ballet pumps, there's no way I'd spend more than £20 on them.

alex said...

i love this. you are sooo right all around! i am totally wearing rings that look way similar to two/three you posted under faux jewls! and yes, they were cheap because they ALWAYS ALWAYS break on me.

another thing you should spend top dollar on? invest in a high quality pair of leggings. some that won't fade or get balls, i wear mine everyday.

Great post darling!

Froso M. said...

@ Alex: You are so right about the leggings!

@ Joanna: Yes honey,for me they are part of the "Leather & Silk accessories" category. It was nice to mantion it.

Thank you all guys. It seems that we share the same ideas about spending and saving! Big hug!

Lluvia said...

I completely agree! Statement pieces that are timeless are worth the money but stuff that you'll get tired of in a week should never be costly.
