There are two things I've come to believe as absolute truth: the first is that if you take care of your clothes, they’ll take care of you, and the second is that investment pieces are only worth investing in if you treat them with respect.
Over the years, I’ve moved away from fast fashion brands and the instant gratification they inevitably bring, and instead, moved towards purchasing investment pieces that bring me countless experiences of joy.
Yep, I’ve become one of those who rave about quality over quantity.
My wardrobe now consists of clothing made ethically from beautiful and durable fabrics. So much so that I constantly feel as if I'm ready for my debut shoot with Vogue (and surely, they’ll call any day now?).
Honestly, it’s paid off.
I’m slowly curating a wardrobe that makes me feel both chic and smart. I see myself as a mix between Alexa Chung and Anna Wintour.
However, once you begin investing in clothes, you usually start wanting to know how to preserve them.
Yes, that expensive blazer by Maggie Marilyn you bought is worth it if you wear it for years, but you need to treat it correctly to maximise its lifespan.
