Quality Over Quantity


Since my recent purchase of this Whistles tee and completely falling in love with the softness and luxurious feel of the fabric, I've been reconsidering things. I'm a sucker for thinking I have to fill all the empty spots in my wardrobe with pieces I'm yet to own all at once, this usually results in buying in quantity and not investing in quality. As you may well know, I'm a lover of basics and you will usually find me in a grey t-shirt and jeans, so I figured why not put a little more money into buying one basic item once a month or so that I know is great quality, rather than 3 or 4 items that might not last as well. So, I've created a check list (hereafter called the "5 point rule") that all said items must meet in order to  justify spending my hard earn't pennies to a purchase:

1// The item must be timeless, classic and a piece that won't go quickly out of trend. 
      (You can bet it'll be black, white, or grey. Standard Emily.)

2// The item must fit nicely within the others that are already in my collection, meaning high 
      wear-ability.

3// The item must be of quality and able to go the distance. (Chances are, I'll be living in it!)

4// Do I own something similar already?

5// Is it love? Yes, yes, YES!



I can't wait for all the A/W lines to hit stores (I know, I'm a bit premature) so I can start putting my list to good use. Winter clothes are most wearable for me out of all the seasons - layering, knits, wooly get up - the lot. Somebody stop me...
