One of my favourite things :)

Just a quickie post to say ‘Hello’ and share one of my seasonal favourites! I purchased this Tory Burch pullover at the beginning of Autumn when in Finland, at Cotton clothing and apparel store. I love this piece. I have been wearing it at least once a week. Care isn’t too bad either. Although the tag says dry clean only, it is natural fabrics, and I’ve found that it can be washed on delicate cycle at 30c or, cold water, then lay flat to dry, wear, repeat. 🙂

Although Tory Burch products are a wardrobe investment, I am more and more convinced that you really do get what you pay for. This, in my opinion, is very true with Tory Burch products. The first item I ever purchased from her product line was a green leather handbag. I was traveling light those days, so it was in fact the only handbag I owned, so the price tag did not give me much pause as I needed something of quality. (Yes, it matched everything…my ‘uniform’ was skinny jeans and a white tank or sweater.) This bag, lasted me for more than three years of daily use, and carry and extensive world travel before it actually began to show signs of wear! Ever after that, I am officially a Tory Burch fan!

According to my distorted price per use formula, I got waaaayyyyy more out of that bag then I usually would. My general formula is that if you can get the price per wear down to 1 or less, then you’ve gotten your moneys worth!

Formula: cost/wears= cost per wear. For the bag, for example, the cost per wear formula went as follows: 365 (days per year, used it daily)*3 (approximate years of use)=1095 days. 300 (approximate price) / 1095 days = 0,27 cents (Price per wear). Pretty good, if you ask me! I should be so lucky if all my wardrobe items lasted like that 😀

What are a few of your favourite things?

Thanks for reading!
