I've always wanted a real leather top as I think they look great but obviously they do come with a slightly depressing price tag. I nabbed this Iris & Ink one in a flash sale, I feel it is a wardrobe staple and worth every penny, as it will hang around in your wardrobe for years to come. A real investment piece. (Similar here)
I also feel with jeans, it is much more worthwhile to pay out for a more expensive pair than just buy a cheap pair and them fade after a few washes. You then end up having to buy more than one pair. Although these Iris & Ink jeans at £95 aren't exactly purse friendly they will hang around a lot longer than a High St pair and the fit and quality is fab. (Found here)
I personally think this outfit can be worn to/for anything - to a job interview, to the cinema, out for a drink, shopping...the list goes on.
I've definitely started to appreciate more expensive items and I would much rather put my money towards something that I really want and know is going to last.
How do you feel about investing in designer pieces? The Outnet is definitely a great place to start.
