terrible happened while I was in New York last week. Okay, not terrible because nothing terrible can happen in New York.
I wassoexcited to go to Topshop. I thought it was Christmas morning. I was planning on having to spend hours sorting through things and figuring out what I absolutely needed. However. Dare I say…after I ran (no, really) through 3 floors of clothing, I felt disappointed.
There were some really cool pieces, but most things I picked up and decided they looked cheap. But they weren’t really cheaply priced. I found myself thinking I’d much rathernot buy 2 things from Topshop and save for one nicer designer item.
I know, I know. It’s crazy. I’m growing up and shit.
My boyfriend’s inclination for quality > quantity when shopping may be a heavy influence in this, but I will say - the few items I’ve had the longest in my closet that get the most circulation are eithervintageorhumble investment pieces(I say humble, because I’m not loading up on the Chanel Couture you guys).
Here I present -four humble investment pieces I would invest in if I had any money at all.
Equipment Blouse, $268.
Loeffler Randall Boots, $476.
Carven Skirt, $340.
APC Trench, $500.
And PLEASE don’t worry, as evidenced by the below photo - I did purchase something from Topshop. And I truly did have a FANTASTIC time in New York; if you need me I’ll be apartment hunting for places in the West Village k cool talk to you ya later.
The Plaza and Bergdorf Goodman.
