Performancing Metrics


High / Low

I love well-made clothes, investment clothes, clothes that will last a lifetime. But that doesn't mean I don't also love fast fashion every now and then! The recent fervor for Versace at H&M got me thinking... Sometimes it doesn't matter how much a garment costs, it's how we wear it - and how much we love it - that really makes it an investment.  
I purchased this skirt at H&M on Friday night (walking past the line of people waiting for the Versace opening the next morning). It cost me $12, but I think it holds its own alongside a Burberry cardigan!

  1. Yes! I agree.. I think some pieces are worth investing in but you show how even if it is not expensive, it still looks amazing.. All about how you wear it..

    All the best, ~Angel
