Without sounding too cheesey, I guess you could say that I’ve been on a kind of “fashion journey” in the last couple of years. I’m at a place in my life where I am in the process of building a wardrobe – without spending over my limit.
And as I share my journey, I am featuring whole heap of different online shops. But of course, I only share the ones which are GOOD, and where I have had a positive experience.
My-Wardrobe.com is an online retailer based in the UK, selling luxury designer brands of clothing and accessories. You can find labels such as See by Chloé, DKNY, Paul and Joe, Sonia Rykiel, Michael Kors, Vivienne Westwood’s Anglomania.
Yes, most of the stuff there is utterly gorgeous and trendy, and they are priced towards the higher-end of the scale. So for me, I’ve been looking there for “investment” pieces.
An investment piece is one that is excellent quality of fabrics (so it will last for hundreds of wears), that is a style that won’t date, suits my figure, and will always mix and match with future changes to my wardrobe. Because if it doesn’t fill all these criteria, it is hard to justify the greater financial investment.
This time around, I was on a mission to buy some casual tops, in a sheer lux material.
I figured that I was tired of buying tops from my usual favourite high-street fashion stores, and then discovering that EVERY OTHER WOMAN I MEET is wearing exactly the same top because it was on a 30% off sale.
So! I found a very nice and simple t-shirt by Forrest Bob (pictured above) for about US$60 made from super fine modal. It’s very smooth and soft, lightweight and argh, it’s just gorgeous!
I also bought this Wessex Sheer Tank with black crystals for US$50. It’s only slightly sheer and the length is nice.
The great thing about this sheer top is that you can pop it over a dress, wrap a belt around it, and have “a new outfit”.
Lots more yummy tops on My-Wardrobe.
Skirts are also a great item when looking for an investment piece.
Of course you should always check out the SALE section of the site!
Happy shopping! (or just enjoy browsing!)
