Five Items Every Young Woman Should Own

The older I get the more I can understand and justify buying high-quality, key pieces for my wardrobe. Am I super excited to spend $100+ on a dress? Debatable. A new handbag? Probably. The thing about these pieces is they are classics that I know I will be able to wear for years.
"Quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten"
-Aldo Gucci
That being said, I believe there are five items every young woman should have in her collection-
  • Monogrammed Necklace // I now own two, a gold script monogram (similar) and a larger silver block monogram (exact). If I'm not wearing one I'm wearing the other - there is something so timeless and personal about a monogram. 
  • High Quality Handbag // Someone once put it very well as "a woman's handbag is like a man's watch" and I agree 100% with that statement. I would rather spend more on a bag I can carry for years than have to buy a new $40 handbag every two months - especially if you can get them pre-owned (just be cautious to if its authentic / in good condition) on sites like Poshmark or Rue La La. I'm especially a big fan of Kate Spade, and a Rebecca Minkoff bag is definitely on my list.
  • Satin Robe // Now this is something I don't think a lot of people would think of, so let me explain my reasoning. I never feel more like a woman than when I am walking around the house in my robe getting ready. Sounds crazy, I know, but there is something so feminine about it to me. I am a die-hard fan of the Victoria's Secret robes (and recently just picked up my third one! #obsessed)
  • Pearl Earrings // Again, timeless. I have a pair from a set I received when I graduated high school and I continue to wear them every day - they add a touch of sophistication to any outfit.
  • Watch // Just like my monogrammed necklaces I own two watches - one gold, one silver. My gold watch I bought when I was sixteen years old and it was the first "nice", investment-piece I had ever bought myself. I'm now twenty years old and have no plans on retiring it watch anytime soon.
Do you have any special items you think I could add to my list? Let me know!
Have a great weekend!



  1. This is such a good post!! My addition would be a *high quality* pair of leather riding boots. Investing in my Tory Burch boots this summer was a hugeeee step up from the $25 fake-leather boots from Belk that I had the fall before (that were literally falling apart!). Love discount shoes for some styles, but for riding boots I think it's smart to make the investment. :-)

  2. This is a great list! I definitely didn't think a robe would be on here, but now you have me convinced that I need one!
