Whether the idea of investment dressing is new to you or not, it’s always relevant, and it’s hard to imagine a better encapsulation of investment dressing than the luxury handbag.
Buying Only the Best
As a concept, investment dressing holds that it’s better to buy well-made clothes and accessories you can wear frequently and longer. “The general consensus,” says Annie Brown of the Brisbane Times, “is that buying a few really good pieces which work with everything in your wardrobe, and which feature a ‘classic with a twist’ aesthetic, is a good life decision.” Done. Brown goes on to say, though, that, “…a true fashion investment is something you truly love and which says something about who you really are.”
Which is one of the reasons we love the world of designer handbag resale, isn’t it? There are so many twists on the classics that we love, and there are so many ways to incorporate any classic accessory into your unique look in ways that enhance both!
Dressing for Success
A recent article in CNBC interviews money and finance experts to back this up nicely in their list of 8 Things Worth Paying More For. Number 6 is a “Timeless Work Wardrobe” like the one described above, and number 7 is “a good bag.” The article notes that you’re not only investing in items that will last, but also in the impressions you make on the people surrounding you. A boost in reputation often pays for itself.
Enjoying Good Investments
And finally, it seems like everyday there’s a new report about how investments in the right designer handbags perform better than the stock market. Wouldn’t you rather get to see, feel, and enjoy what you’re putting your money into, anyway?
The Brisbane Times includes many standards that we often see at the top of the investments lists. The Hermès Birkin always gets a mention, but so do Hermès bags in general. We love this Hermès Halzan Mini.
