Everyone is talking about it and unfortunately many are living it.
No difference here in Italy, we talk of nothing other than this economic crisis, crisis and more crisis!
On a day like this though, the financial crisis doesn’t exist at all.
I went to the hair dresser today and it was crowded with ladies of all ages having their hair done while discussing what to wear to their New Year’s parties. Should it be their new Fendi shoes or should they don their Prada shoes?
I silently asked myself what happened to the crisis. How do you mange to have the newest from the most important fashion houses in these times?
The answer is simple, you go for safe investments!
Bags, jewelery and shoes are the perfect investment, and not as an excuse for us shoe fanatics to continue shopping.
No, because in two years the it-bag or it-shoe will become vintage or a collection piece.
With this philosophy, we fashion loving Italians continue to buy the fantastic shoes that our favorite designers have dreamed up for us in their fall/winter 2008-2009 collections. Shoes that, when one has a first look at them, are beautiful but beg the question, where should I wear you?
Buy them, use them, save them!
You won’t regret it.
So all of you shoe fanatics out there, give the gift of safe investments!
(Even if the gift is for you!)
I have done just that and so has my friend, Francesca.
