5 Investment Pieces Every Fashionable Woman Should Own


Wanting to be fashion forward, but not one to splurge on designer labels? I know this feeling all too well, and I'm sure most can relate. More often than not, fashion can feel a little out of budget. People go at length to get their dream items spending hard-earned rent money, blindly swiping credit cards, or breaking the bank with every paycheck...been there, done that!

Others (I would like to think I'm one of them) save their money wisely to buy their dream wardrobe guilt free proving pricey investment pieces ARE attainable if you go about it smartly. If you're looking to change your poor shopping habits into smart investments, look no further. The following 5 items are undoubtedly worth every penny and are a MUST HAVE in every fashion girl's closet.

1. Gucci GG Marmont Leather Mini Bag

The most popular bag brand among today's "it-girls," Gucci bags can be worn with multiple different looks and stylings due to their classic combo of unique details and quality materials. I am OBSESSED with this one in red and can already envision a simple, yet trendy outfit in my near future: cool jeans, a graphic-t, and my Gucci cross body paired with mascara and a matching bold red lipstick to tie it all together. 

2. Givenchy Antigona Medium Duffel

With the amount of things I throw into my purse, carrying it is basically a work out at this point. I know you ladies know what I'm talking about! We could definitely use a bigger go-to bag that is able to hold all our belongings while still being a stylish accessory. This gorgeous gray shade duffel adorned with oversized silver hardware is a favorite among big celebs such as Kylie Jenner, Gwenyth Paltrow, and Chrissy Teigen.

3. Christian Louboutin So Kate Pumps

Adulting is hard...I've been searching for a stylish black stiletto that isn't boring, outdated, and TOO old and professional looking for quite some time now. The So Kate Louboutins are the definite winner! Their chic silhouette is perfect dressed up with sleek trousers at work OR dressed down with a sexy little black dress for a night out on the town. Every girl needs a classic black pump in her closet and who hasn't dreamed of owning heels with the famous red sole?

4. Gucci Leather Belt with Double G Buckle

It seems that every time I scroll through social media these days, I'm bound to see the iconic double G belt. From Instagram's biggest fashion bloggers, such as Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad and Rocky Barnes, to my favorite Real Housewives (aka Kyle Richards), to the Kardashians, everyone is rocking them year round! The must-have accessory is a necessity for the hard working badass girl who wants the satisfaction of owning a designer piece, but isn't ready to totally splurge.

5. Balenciaga Women’s Speed Knit Sneakers

Whoever said fashion is worth the pain is either lying or has never worn uncomfortable shoes! Balenciaga's Speed Knit Sneakers are designed with a sock-like, elastic fit making them not only comfy, but also stylish. Athleisure is still having a major moment, thank you Gigi Hadid, and these sneakers are ideal for creating the look. The bold white sole is sleek, sporty, and versatile enough to wear with my fav comfy sweats, or even ripped jeans and a crop top.

We all have to treat ourselves once in awhile and these 5 items should TOTALLY be on your radar! Not only staple pieces every girl can incorporate in endless ways into her wardrobe, but also on trend and high quality, making them guaranteed to last for years to come!
