I'm another year older, but now I can finally say I own a 'forever' piece. As it was an important birthday I was fortunate enough to be given these (scroll down!):
I love them, they are so classic and they have been on my wish list for a loooong time. I can honestly see myself loving them as much in 40 years time, as I do now. Good shoes are the cornerstone of a good outfit (I think) so I feel ready to build on the rest of my wardrobe with things I will enjoy wearing forever.
What was the first truly memorable thing you bought/were given?
