It was after a colleague teased me about this tan purse that I
realised I have found my signature style.
Your signature style could be a scent, a certain pattern; like vertical stripes or chevron, a piece of jewelry or as is my case, a tan purse. Something with which you are identified. I've carried this purse every
.single .day since I got it a little over a year ago. I only put it down if I'm going somewhere special.
Here, I wore it with my well-beaten slides to dress down this
colourful cord lace top tailored just as I illustrated and perfect for a visit to the salon for a wash.
Do you have a signature style?

I like expensive things for the quality they deliver, but I'd rather get quality things at a more comfortable price point so that I can truly appreciate the quality of the item or service. I've learned from experience that if it costs so much that I'd be afraid to lose it or, worse, use it meaningfully, then I'd rather not have it.
To me, luxury is something that I do not really need to live or survive, but it's enjoyable, nice or relaxing.
Like stolen kisses on an early evening date, gifted autographed books just because I asked or another stripe top just for the love of stripes.
What does luxury mean to you?
