Investment dressing: the Golden Rules
I love rules, not only I don’t find them restrictive but see them as essential frame work for any successful decision making process.
In the next few posts, I will share my top requirements for wise investment purchases.
The first and foremost rule, which all others abide…
the mother of all rules:
Sound of drums:
Rule # no.1
1. Whenever I buy something expensive, it has to look better on me, than on the model or some other stupid fantasy going on in my head. I’d expand this rule to include any purchase, not just the expensive ones. Some styles are never going to work if you are under 5.7 and/or on the plus side. (Examples I can think off hand: exaggerated frills, oversize tailoring, ginormous boyfriend jeans… CHANEL tweed can look matronly on some, poor fit tailoring can reduce even the most expensive item into a gross liability…) and don’t rely on your best friend or mum, for advice on what looks good…
This may sound obvious but it can take years of experimentation to sift through the noise and work out, the shapes, colours and textures that work best for us.
Harsh but true: An infinite budget and an expensive wardrobe won’t come to the rescue here, a good three way mirror is what we need…Do you have one? Try things on and try them on again. A size up and a size down…
