I Want To Be A Style Classic

It's something I wrote about in my Fashion Journal last week.

Since I've recently got myself a job, I've been thinking less about how I can save money and more about how I can spend it.

So I've been looking through magazines such as GLAMOUR, Marie Claire and Instyle, thinking

Hmmmmmm. Wouldn't it be nice, instead of buying cheapy outfits on a whim that will last one season, to spend more money on quality, classic pieces that will stay in fashion for years, and won't look worn out after long?

To me, that doesn't sound like a bad idea.

Now don't get me wrong, I still like a bargain. Very much so. I'm not suggesting I'm going to go on a spree and blow hundreds of pounds. This will be more of a gradual process.

I'm just a part-time waitress, you know. I'm not loaded.

So I've been browsing around for items of clothing with these criteria:

1. Versatile - to be worn with LOTS of different items, all seasons
2. Preferably within the region of £30-£50
3. Durability, lasting years and years
4. Classic. Always in fashion.

Picky and tricky, you might think?

Oh no, definitely not. You'll be amazed at what I found! I hope this impresses you.


Looking at these pictures I'm quite pleased. Here are just a few examples, but I hope I've proved how easy it is to be a Style Classic!

I'd bet that in ten years time, these items will be just as fashionable as they are now.

Much love,

  1. Hi Emma,

    I love your blog and the classic peices you're going to work towards getting. I only buy trendy peices if they are a bargain. Spending a lot of money on clothes is very hard to do.

    Thanks for checking out my blog, I hope you continue reading it and I look forward to more posts from you!

  2. WOOOO.
    my emma is buying timeless pieces, you sound so stylish teheee xxxxxxxxxx

  3. Those are great pieces you found (:

    haha, I don't look poor, but I totally am! I always shop in the clearance section. I know, I always get stuff from the end of the season, but I don't really care what season it is. I try to incorporate all of my clothes into every season. Whatever money I get from working, I use to splurge, keeps me sane HAHA :) Thanks for the lovely comment!

  4. That is so true, it is a better investment :)
