The pieces left hanging in my wardrobe are all hard-working, often worn items and are also all in keeping with my style and what I want to wear at the moment. This is great as it also helps me see a clearer picture when I go shopping. I can quickly identify whether or not I need something or if it is just an impulse buy that will end up in the charity pile a couple months later. The mix of brands is very much 50/50 between high end and high street. The interesting thing is that I am starting to see a pattern emerging: there are things I always spend money on (jumpers, tee-shirts, blazers) and things I always save on (denim, small accessories, dresses). So when I went to my local TK Maxx to have a browse, I naturally wandered towards the Gold Label section where I found the top I am wearing in these pics (beautifully cut with great graphic detailing). The denim jacket, was found on the other side of the store and I couldn’t resist its boxy shape, frayed edges and print. As for the black suede boots, they were a total steal at £25 and I just had to have them, because I can never have too many pairs of black suede boots and this is a fact.If you are looking to introduce more “investment” pieces into your wardrobe, but aren’t quite sure what the ideal investment is for you, go have a little wander in your closest TK Maxx and you will soon realise the ideal investment piece might just find you. You will see it from the other side of the room, waiting. You will pick it up and if it is the right size then you will know it was meant to be. How’s that for a happy ending?
I am wearing: jacket, top & boots (all found in TK Maxx), Levi’s jeans and Iris & Ink bag.
