I teach my Personal Styling and Shopping clients how to choose pieces that become #closetkeepers – investment pieces that as they curate their individual style wardrobe will remain beloved and come out to play every now and then with different outfits as the years pass.
Style is not just about buying new things all the time and it kinds of shits me that style posts on instagram and elsewhere have really become about that.
These Vintage 70s Yves Saint Laurent boots were a bit of a coup to my wardrobe some 10 years ago. A good friend was moving to NYC and did an infamous designer clothes, bags and shoes sale.
When word got out in Sydney there were queues down the hall in her apartment block and no wonder. Luckily as close friend and helper I got to check out the stock before the stampede started and these designer boots were firmly in my sights.
They have been brought out most years for a wee play with what is new in my wardrobe but for the last couple of years have needed some love from a good old fashioned cobbler. Where are those artisans nowadays – so hard to find. Anyway found one that I trusted and got my lovely boots back to their glory.
Was feeling like I wanted an easy day in jeans after all the everyday dramas of the last little while with kids etc – read here if you need to know more, so I allowed the boots to do the talking.
