With mother’s day approaching…it made me think of my own mum and her “Fashion Investment” theory…which suprisingly i have managed to integrate into my life even till today.
Now, my mother isn’t quirky or fashion forward. However like every mum she knows best. She used to say a woman only needed 10 essential pieces in her wardrobe and with these 10 essential pieces, every woman was entitled to spending as though it was an investment.
1. The LBD or in my mother’s case - the NOT SO Little Black Dress
2. The Tailored white dress shirt
3. The cashmere sweater
4. The easy pump
5. The pencil/midi skirt
6. The leather jacket
7. The perfect jeans
8. The lightweight wool blazer
9. The tailored trouser pant
10. The belted trench
Suprisingly, I’ve managed to do most of these 10 points successfully even into my 20’s…
Anyway enough for today’s ramblings! Happy mother’s day to all the amazing mums and mum-to-bes!
