What are your investment pieces?
I work in retail, which means I am on my feet for 40 hours a week. So for me, it is very important to have a supportive pair of shoes. And if that means I have to spend a little more than normal for work shoes, I do it. Believe me it is worth it not to come home with my feet and legs in agony.
I mostly wear t-shirts and polos for work, and these shirts take a lot of abuse. I get most of my shirts from LL Bean. They have a variety of looks and their shirts keep their shape and color even after lots of washing. To me, this is worth the extra money I spend, because I don’t have to replace my work shirts as often.
This is one area that I think all women should spend a little extra on. The girls need support! When I have on a prefect fitting bra, I feel so much more confident in how I look, not to mention feeling more comfortable in general. Isn’t that worth a little extra money?
My Winter Coat
I hate the cold! But I hate wearing a heavy coat, so I looked for a light weight coat that would still keep me warm in the coldest temperatures. It meant spending a little extra money, but it was worth it!
I’m definitely a jeans girl! While I don’t always spend a ton of money on jeans, if those jeans fit really well, I treat them like gold. I don’t wash my jeans after every wear, and I always line-dry them. By doing these two things, I’m able to keep my favorite jeans looking good for years.
I got my first set of “grown-up” luggage when I was 25, and I’m so glad that I decided to invest in a good set. I’ve seen too many people buy cheaper luggage only to have to replace it after one trip. My 3-piece set has been on countless road trips, plus to Greece, Egypt, Europe and Kenya, and it still looks great! If you travel a lot, this is one thing you definitely shouldn’t skimp on.
So what items do you consider investment pieces? And why do you think that they are worth that extra money?
