Shopping: 3 things I’m not buying any more

The fashion industry has become much more aware of sustainability over the last few years and it’s got me thinking about my own shopping habits. I can definitely see a change in how and what I spend my money on, especially in the last couple of years.  There are 3 things that really stand out to me that I’ve stopped buying which I am going to talk about in today’s blog post.

High Street Handbags

I have a real love for handbags and I would say they are probably my favourite fashion item to shop for. As well as designer bags, I used to buy pieces from the high street as well but this is something that I have moved away from over the last couple of years. No disrespect to the high street, but they just cannot compete with the quality of leathers and hardware featured on a designer handbag and I would much rather spend more money on a quality luxury piece that stands the test of time all day long.

Certain designer bags are considered an investment and you can re-sell them on the pre-loved market if you decide you no longer get the same amount of use for it. You can actually get some money back on them which you can put towards your next designer handbag purchase! This isn’t the case for all designer bags on the market, but certainly for classic pieces such as an Hermes Birkin, Hermes Kelly or a Chanel Classic flap bag for example you can always re-sell for the same price or even higher than what you paid for it originally if you’ve kept it in a decent condition.

It’s a good idea to invest into the classic carry over styles that the luxury brands continue every season. The seasonal pieces, although are often cheaper, are not always a great buy as the following year they can look really dated and very specific to the time they were launched. However these can often, in years to come, become little gems to resell and become quite covetable again. Look at the Dior saddle bag which has come back into fashion a decade later, as well as the rise of the Y2K inspired looks that are all over Instagram right now. That one seasonal piece you buy now might become very handy in 10 years time and look just as fresh as it did when you first bought it.

Seasonal trend led pieces

Now, don’t get me wrong, I do love to keep up with the latest trends as I work in the fashion industry and it’s my job. However, the last few years I have definitely taken a step back from buying into every single new trend that pops up each season. Now days I will really consider if I want to get on board with a trend led piece or not.  This is both for high-street clothing as well as designer items. For example, when Prada launched the re-edition handbag or Dior launched their canvas book tote, everyone went crazy for them and rushed out to get one. However these were not styles that I wanted to get involved with as I know in a year’s time they are going to look really dated. Look at Celine for example – they have had some major hits with their handbags in the past but then they only look good for a short period of time. If you wear it a year later or more, everyone knows what collection it was from and it just doesn’t look quite right any more.

If it’s not a classic seasonal piece or something that I can pull out year after year to wear, I’m not as keen to make that purchase any more. I would rather spend the money on something I know I will love for a longer period of time. 

Fast Fashion

Fast fashion is one of the main culprits when it comes to sustainability in the industry. For a long time I felt that I needed a new outfit every time I went out and there was such a huge explosion of online brands appearing that update their websites with new items daily. The throw away fashion culture is definitely not helped by social media which fuels this constant need for newness and having the next latest thing all the time.

The thing that I find the most disappointing about a lot of these online retailers is the quality of the clothing. I am more interested in spending that little bit more money for nicer fabrics and styles that I know I will get a lot of wear out of now days. My wardrobe is not bursting at the seems like it once was and there is something really nice about building a casual collection of pieces that you can easily mix and match and get a lot of wear out of each season. This is something I aim to be a lot better at and really want to work on.

Getting Autumn/Winter ready with Glamify Fashion

Autumn is just around the corner and that means one thing – new season fashion! For this week’s post I’m working with Glamify Fashion and checking out their new AW21 collection. They are a UK based online retailer who focus on trend led pieces and in a stylish feminine style.

The fashion savvy among us will already know that when it comes to Autumn/Winter shopping, you need to start looking to buy your coats in August. Even if it’s hot weather and the last thing you want to think about is wearing a coat, it’s the best time to buy one as you will have a much wider selection available. Leaving it to the last minute when the weather gets colder will only leave you disappointed as all the best pieces will have been snapped up already. This is one of my all time top tips with shopping for A/W fashion.

Glamify Fashion currently have a sale on at the moment so this is the perfect time for me to show you my favourite selection of their jackets, shackets and coats to get you ready for the new season!

Eliza cream gilet

Let’s start with what I am wearing in today’s post. This is the Eliza gilet in cream which I will link HERE for you. Straight away I was really impressed with this gilet. The faux fur is lovely and soft the PU leather is excellent quality too. I sized up to a size L as will be wearing this with thicker knitwear when it gets colder. For now, as we transition into the new season, I will wear this with long sleeve t-shirts or lightweight roll necks. This is a layering piece that will make you feel glam and will look great paired with sneakers for a dressed down look or equally as good with boots for a more dressed up style. This gilet is also available in grey, black and camel colour options.

The hero pieces of the range

Glamify Fashion have a great selection of jackets and coats in a variety of colours so there is a lot to choose from. I’ve selected my favourite items from the range that I can see selling out early on and what I predict will be the pieces to snap up quickly. Let’s get into the pieces…

Shackets

A shacket is the most perfect and easy way to layer up a look, whilst still looking chic and put together. I really loved these two shackets in particular. The gorgeous neutral cream tone item which will go with literally every outfit, and the houndstooth one which creates a whole look in itself. So simple and so stylish. Both of these pieces are timeless and can be worn year after year.

Faux Fur

When choosing a faux fur coat, the quality is such an important factor as sometimes the ‘fur’ material can let down the entire look. Going by the faux fur on the gilet I have been wearing, Glamify Fashion already have this covered and have a really nice quality faux fur with their pieces. These three coats were my favourites from the range and they are a mix of both padded and belted styles.

Puffers and padded

If full on faux fur isn’t your thing, then take a look at these puffer coats and padded styles as an alternative. I’m going to be adding this freyah quilted coat (image 1) into my collection. This jacket looks so expensive and I love the balloon sleeves and cinched in waist detail. Duvet coats are going to be huge this season too and let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to feel like they are still wrapped up in bed when they are going out in the freezing UK weather!

Classic styles

If trend led pieces are not your thing, it’s always a great idea to look for classic styles that you know will stand the test of time. I’ve picked out a classic trench, a biker jacket and an aviator style here which are easy to style and wear throughout the whole season.

 

Check out the Glamify website HERE – as well as their jackets, they have a huge range of clothing including loungewear, denim, dresses, knitwear, footwear and so much more. They even have a children’s clothing range for any of you that have a mini fashionista in the family too!

Disclosure – This gilet piece was kindly gifted to me by the brand

Luxury fashion – the latest Chanel price increases

Chanel Fall-Winter 2020-2021 Paris

Any luxury addict will know that designer brands have several price increases during the year. However the latest price increases to hit the market have sent shock waves around the luxury fashion community. 

What brands are affected?

Chanel has caused the biggest stir with their latest price increase and Louis Vuitton have since followed suit. Chanel are one of the more expensive luxury brands out there and it can be really disappointing when they put their prices up, especially if you have been saving for a while to get your hands on one of their iconic pieces.

It seems that is mainly the Chanel handbags and SLGs that have been affected by the recent prices increases and they actually decided to remove all handbag pricing on their website. The handbags are now showing as ‘prices available upon request’, meaning that you will now have to ask a sales assistant for advice and have no idea how much each piece is beforehand. Shoppers often like to know what they can expect to pay for items in advance, especially when they come with such a large price tag and we all know that the customer service for this brand is certainly not the most helpful or friendliest so this is going to put a lot of people off. 

Now that these two brands have actioned their recent aggressive price increases, we can expect many other brands to follow and do the same unfortunately. So if you have your eye on something from another luxury brand, now would certainty be the time to buy to avoid being stung with a price increase down the line!

What styles are affected?

Louis Vuitton have increased the pricing across their full handbag line. Unfortunately many styles have been out of stock for weeks and even months so if you have been waiting for a long time to buy a particular style, you are now going to face a higher price than before while you remain waiting.

For Chanel, not all handbags seem to have been increased, however it’s mainly the iconic classic styles that have been hit with the new prices such as the 11.12 and 2.55, as well as Boy, Gabrielle, Chanel 19 bags – plus certain small leather goods. The Boy bags took less of a hit but this will be because they are not as in demand as they once were.

What do the price increases look like?

According to Purse Blog, the below are examples of the main price increases within Europe.

Prices will vary depending on what part of the world you buy from, so the USA prices will be often very different to say Paris or London. 

Classic Bag Prices

STYLE NEW PRICE OLD PRICE PERCENT INCREASE
Chanel Classic Mini Square Flap Bag €3,350 €2,680 25%

Why such large price increases?

We all know that businesses around the globe have been affected by the dreaded C word – the recent Covid 19 virus. Factories overseas closed halting production, stores have been closed for a couple of months, sales staff have been put on furlough, and Chanel is a brand that do not sell online. Why they decided not to do this is not clear exactly, but I feel it’s to reduce how accessible they are and to help minimise the distribution of the brand, making them appear to be more exclusive – such as Hermes, one of the most prestige brands out there. It could also be that Chanel have been a little backwards in their acceptance of modern technology and deciding to keep to the more traditional route of luxury selling.

Going back to the Covid 19 situation though – Chanel have issued a statement saying that this is not related to Covid 19 and purely part of their twice yearly increases as well as factoring fluctuating exchange rates. However this is the largest price increase that I have seen from the brand (some styles increasing by a whopping 25% !!) and it has been quite shocking, especially during such an uncertain time.

Chanel stressed that “any price increases are implemented only after careful consideration, and are necessary for the brand to continue investing to maintain its core standards of creativity and craft.”

Final thoughts..

I personally think the price increases were extremely high this time and they’ve come at the worst possible timing with everything going on in the world at the moment. The brands that have had such large pricing hikes are pushing customers further away and making it more difficult for a lot of people to be able to be able to buy from them. Perhaps this is part of their brand strategy which is a shame.

So, what do you think about these latest price increases?

Will it put you off buying from luxury brands?

Lavender: The colour to be seen in this Spring

Out of all the pastel shades, lavender is one of my favourites. Its a gorgeous cool tone that looks clean and fresh but it’s also a great way to make a bold statement with any outfit. Spring is on it’s way and it’s the perfect transition from cosy winter coats and chunky knitwear moving into lighter materials, soft pretty colours and a fresh new take on our wardrobes. I don’t know about you, but I get so excited when I see the sale items getting smaller in the stores and the ‘new in’ sections starting to take over again with new pieces to get excited about. 

Now the sale rails are finally on their way out I have been looking through the latest pieces and lavender tones have been popping up in a lot of places. It’s such a gorgeous colour that suits every skin tone and I’m really looking forward to this colour pallet for Spring! 

How to style Lavender pieces

Luckily this is an easy colour to incorporate into an outfit as it works well with other colours. I love to mix this shade with denim as the colours compliment each other beautifully. You can also mix lavender pieces with a crisp white shirt and a pair of black, leather trousers for a stylish ‘office appropriate’ outfit. Or why not go head to toe in a lavender shade suit – which is also ticking off another 2 trends in one go – colour blocking and tailoring.

Adding neutral shades with lavender is the easiest way to style this. Basic whites, creams, black or grey will let the lavender item do all the talking for your look – everyone has neutral basics that they can add into an outfit so you can take on this trend without having to buy a load of new items to try and style with it.

If wearing colour isn’t really your thing, you can incorporate it easily with accessories. Look for handbags, shoes, scarves or hats to add a pop of Lavender in a more classic, understated way.

Another thing that I really like is that it doesn’t matter if you prefer to wear gold or silver jewellery as both work really well with lavenders, lilacs and purple colours. So let’s have a look at the top pieces that I recommend to get onboard with this trend for Spring. 

Lavender pieces that you need to pick up now

As always with trends it’s good to be ahead of the game. The stores are just launching all of the new Spring 20 collections and there are a couple of places that have some amazing pieces in this colour pallet that you will want to get your hands on. And other Stories is fast becoming one of my new favourite shopping destinations and they have the best lilac pieces right now, as well as Zara who have also picked up on this being a hit colour of the season.

Trend Report: Logomania

Logos and branding are back and in a big way! Shown all over the runways the last few seasons, we are seeing a huge trend in the collections for styles with large logos, monogrammed details and boldly branded pieces.

Logomania is not a new trend; it’s something that comes back into fashion time and time again. It was particularly a hit in the 80s and 90s and designers such Chanel were leading the way back then just as much as they are killing it today.  We are seeing designers at Burberry and Fendi  are evolving this by bringing out newly designed logos, updating their monogramme details, moving into the new age of fashion and having a fresh take on this trend.

I personally am loving the Logomania trend and I’ve always been drawn to it in previous years. Some of the vintage 90s Chanel pieces that were heavily branded with their famous interlocking CCs were truly amazing so if you are able to get hold of any vintage pieces from those decades you will have found some absolute gems that will stand the test of time for many years to come. They are such investment pieces. I had the original Christian Dior saddle bag when they first launched this style in the early 2000s and let me tell you, it was not at the £2k price point that it is today! Unfortunately I wore that bag to it’s absolute death but if I still had it, it would be a fabulous vintage piece that would work well with any outfit today.

See below for my top 6 fashion brands to go to for embracing the logomania trend.

That’s the beauty of this trend – you can either invest in ready to wear pieces (which are usually quite expensive and hard to get hold of without a decent SA) or you can be involved in the trend with the use of accessories such as bags, scarves, small leathers, shoes or hats which are often a much more affordable option.

Some people are not a fan of logos as they prefer to buy an item of clothing for the quality alone, without the need to broadcast who designed it. But for me, the more logos the better at the moment! Traditionally in fashion though, the trend of flashing large logos everywhere usually then moves into a more basic, simplistic look instead which is often a refreshing change after being saturated with designer names all over the place.

Share in the comments below if you like this trend and what your favourite designer logo is. What was your favourite piece from my selection too? I would love to know!
