We don’t know if it’s the recession, but something’s been persuading us to save up for those big investment buys for some time.
Aside from saving up for important stuff like this year’s holiday and next year’s big move, y’know, saving up for those pieces you’ve been lusting after for ages – and are really quite necessary – is actually rather satisfying.
And, just like when you scraped together your pocket money to buy Barbies and Spice Girl shoes as a child, putting aside money for pieces you’ll love – and wear – forever is totally worth it, because at the very least, a beautifully constructed bag or a sumptuous silk shirt are timeless items that remain practical for life as well as pretty.
So, with that in mind, we’ve picked our favourite big money buys that we think are worth the cash this season. Behold, breathe and begin to save…
