Overall, I’m pretty content with the state of my wardrobe but I do keep and update wishlists on my favourite online boutiques, such as Net-A-Porter, Matches and Reiss, on the off-chance that items go on sale. I’ve adopted a slower approach to fashion since having kids and as a result, have prioritised pieces made to last to ensure I get the most enjoyment out of them. When it comes to designer pieces in particular, I look towards investing in classic styles, as I’ve found these are the pieces in my wardrobe that get the most love.
Here are the current pieces that I’m lusting after:
Dior J’adior Slingbacks
These heels were on my radar for the longest time and after seeing a few too many pictures of my favourite bloggers sporting the heels, I paid a visit to the Dior’s Sydney boutique on Castlereagh Street in December last year to try them on for myself. Part of me wishes I didn’t visit the boutique because I haven’t been able to get the heels out of my head since. I quickly fell in love with the Slingbacks in Black Technical Fabric. The 6.5cm heel was so comfortable and I loved the simplicity of the black.
Pre-kids Vee would not have thought twice and bought the shoes. But the current responsible me cannot justify the $1,350 price tag and so I have been keeping an eye out on the pre-loved market and will pounce when the price is right.
Gianvito Rossi Pumps
To continue the shoe theme, I’ve also been meaning to add some swanky suede pumps to my wardrobe, in particular Gianvito Rossi’s 85 suede pumps in tan brown and navy. I’ve only ever heard great things about the shoes and I think the stiletto heel looks particularly elegant in their design. That said, I still want to make sure I can walk confidently in them and the 85mm height makes this possible.
Acne Studios Canada Scarf
I bit the bullet earlier this year and purchased my grey Canada scarf. It was a bit of a splurge but I think it was worth every cent. The scarf is oversized which means it can be worn in many different ways and it is also luxuriously soft.
I’m now looking to add a brown or a navy colour to my collection, just to add to the options I have to mix and match with my winter coats and woollies.
