I find myself day-dreaming a bit today so thought it would be fun to talk about aspirational pieces of clothing and accessories. You know…the ones that you hope to save up for some day and, once purchased, will treasure like your first-born child. Three of the pieces on my list are detailed below.
Manolo Blahnik BB Pumps: $595
Named after Brigitte Bardot this classic shoe with a modest 70 mm/2.75 inch heel is the most attainable item (i.e., least expensive) on my list. The simple classic styling is exactly what I’m referring to when I encourage clients to invest in well made pieces with styling longevity. The Jimmy Choo Romy 85 is a similar style at the same price for girls that fall into the Choo Camp.
Cartier Tank Francaise Watch: $3,250-7,550 (depending on size/finishes chosen)
The original Cartier Tank was inspired in 1917 by the Renault Tanks which Louis Cartier saw in use on the Western Front. In the past 100 years the original has led to many variations such as the Tank Cintree, Tank Chinoise, Tank Folle, Tank Americaine and, my preferred, the Tank Francaise. This piece subtlety implies luxury…wealth…refinement!
Chanel 2.55 Bag: $3,600-6,000 (depending on size/finishes chosen)
