The whole #100shoppingban has got me thinking about fast fashion v’s classic pieces. I have to say i am a culprit of buying into something if i’ve perhaps seen it in a magazine or on another blogger.
Normally my thought process is;
“Oh wow that looks amazing, ooh oh ooo i must try that and look totally awesome and my life will be complete and all will be right with the world”, or something along those lines. Then once purchased I find it does not fill all my hopes and aspirations, I feel a bit meh about it and it goes to the back of the wardrobe…So it goes.
The amount of times i’ve thrown things away/given to charity new or barely worn items is actually quite scary. The spoilt brat syndrome of the modern world is not a good quality i hold and I’m not afraid to admit that.
So with nearly 100 days of no shopping nearly under my belt (27 days left and counting), it got me thinking about what i will buy once D-day (or S(hop)-day) finally arrives.
The simplicity of a timeless, classic capsule wardrobe appeals to me. All the pieces above are interchangeable, to make different outfits which would be suitable for any given occasion.
As a ‘style blogger’ just having the same few items may get a leetle boring after the first initial few blog posts and i know i’m definitely not ‘cured’ from ever buying the latest this or that, but i think when the time comes i will be buying key pieces, items that can be worn and remixed and worn again.
To me those things are:
Classic red dress
Good quality & size black bag
the perfect Breton top
Simple black shirt
Black Statement shoes
Leopard print pumps
Red lips & Nails
