The finest things

Whenever someone visits my home one of the first things they ask is if they could see my closet. Funny thing is everyone seems to be so surprised when I show them what I own, which is one closet who I share with my man. Fact is, he has more clothes then I do. The next thing people wonder and often ask is how I can look so different on a day to day basis. Truth is (I have been living by this for years) reinvention is key. I invest in garments and accessories that are timeless and versatile. Since I often get the question how to recognize or select these pieces I thought I would share my tips here. Obviously the first thing that gravitates me towards a garment is the cut and style. However this doesn't mean I'm immediately sold. One of the main things I value when it comes to clothing is material. I rather not buy something that will fall apart after a few months. There are many materials when it comes to design and when it comes to my wardrobe I often buy clothing in materials such as cotton, wool, silk and leather. I will dedicate a separate post on materials soon. Aside from the materials I also pay attention to craftsmanship. How are the seams, zippers and buttons. This is also very important when it comes to buying new things. Last but not least I ask myself if I would wear this garment years from now and if the design is timeless. Color plays a role in this too even though I only buy things in black and white, there are many different shades when it comes to these colors. For example I hardly buy anything that isn't crispy white especially because sometimes whites can fade a bit. Some thing goes for accessories, I hardly buy jewelry in high street stores since they discolor and leave my skin with green spots. Rather I look for things that are delicate and in sterling silver such as this necklace I recently got. It's a perfect adjustment to my exciting collection, the bracelet I bought last season can still be found around my wrist daily.
