There’s treasure in those cupboards.
Like a good Bordeaux wine, they have aged well.
Some of these beauties date back for more than twenty years; I call that a sturdy investment. The wonderful news, I will wear them now they have resurfaced. I believe more and more we will be re-purposing our fashion heroes so what we choose in the future will become even more important. When we do revert back to dressing I know I will be focussing on pieces to last.
During these isolation days, my dressing has been interesting. It goes all of two ways and that is I gravitate between the sweats and the best dresses. The pieces I want to wear when I get out of the comfortable gear are what, in the past, I saved for “best”. The in-between fashion has now been forgotten, which is interesting to me as my “what to wear” behaviour changes course. I don’t know if I will return to my old ways as I choose to follow the less is more and investment dressing approach to fashion.
As for the shoes; it’s all about sneakers and trainers.
Tottering around in the Manolo’s would look fine, just not with the sweats, but whom am I kidding. There is no way I’m wearing heels for my own appraisal; it’s comfort all the way. So while the body may be waving to high fashion, the feet are placed firmly on the ground.
I do alternate my footwear – between trainers, sneakers and the in-between models – and that’s about it. Like tees, there are never too many. They are the one item in my shoe cupboard really doing the miles and where once I thought I had too many pairs; now I’m wondering what colour the next might be. xv
