London clearly has plenty to offer. As I read Erin’s post yesterday, I couldn’t help but think back to the first piece of classic British fashion I ever purchased. A cashmere, Burberry nova check scarf. I was 19 and spent my money on things I didn’t need back then. Maybe this girl needed a scarf, but that scarf wasn’t necessary.
There I was in Nordstrom – a lone shopper. I strolled by the neatly folded heaps of Burberry scarves and I let my hands graze over the soft cashmere. Sold. Sold. Sold. I was buying one – that was it! Over a decade later, I still own the scarf. Some years it remains tucked away in the closet, and others, I wear it like crazy. I’d say it was a good investment piece.
Burberry Prorsum is a truly chic line, but that lambskin trench you see is $11,000. If you have an affection for oh, so British attire, take a close look at the budget friendly outfit above. It makes my heart skip a beat; and endless possibilities exist for each item. Those shoes. Yes, they got their own sentence because they’re far too cute!
The math doesn’t lie, my friends. You can purchase a Burberry inspired outfit for $200 less than the cost of a classic Burberry scarf. I know it’s a little heartbreaking to be forced to choose, but which option would you select? The scarf or the outfit?
