An Investment in Time


Recently, i asked a fashion buyer for Burberry, G-star and Diesel (more on her story in post coming) what would she wear when she hit her 50s. Granny panties? Definitely a no-no.

Instead, she divulged that as she age, she found herself more drawn to investment pieces. That means silk blouses that hopefully will never go out of trend, or a quality pair of leather shoes.

My investment pieces are watches. I haven't been able to bring myself to buy a $600 dress or heel yet, but for a watch? The most i've paid is $350 for Marc Jacobs.

The latest acquisition is Casio's Sheen range, $196.

With a battery life of 2 years (cue investment piece), this chronograph is water resistant with a genuine leather band. Funny how the clock face is Mother of Pearl with colorful rhinestone hour markers yet is cheaper than Marc Jacobs which has none of these precious gems!

With an investment piece like that, I'm going to age with grace, an accessory elegant and sophisticated that'll last me long.
