My Mom always gets on my case about my shoes. “Don’t be afraid to spend money on shoes! Cheap shoes will hurt your feet!” she says. Since she apparently think she’s a “style icon” after appearing on this blog once or twice, I have no choice but to listen to her.
Deciding where to invest ones wardrobe dollars can be tricky. Since I’m an avid thrifter, I tend to get sticker shock when I am looking at items like leather boots and winter jackets. And yet if I think about how often I wear certain items, it makes sense to invest in a high-quality piece that I can buy in a local store. This Cambridge couple are rocking two timeless jacket styles: a Barbour coat on him and a Burberry rain coat on her. These aren’t inexpensive items, but they will still be staples ten years from now – guaranteed. Plus I’d love to be able to say, “Oh this old thing? I’ve had it for over a decade!”
