What’s the first investment item you ever bought? Do you still own and wear it?
(I hate the word “investments” for clothes by the way.)
When I first had my interviews, I bought suits. Lots of suits. Pant suits, skirt suits, I bought them all with matching jackets and sold most of them except for ONE.
I still have this ONE tweed charcoal grey pant and skirt suit from Jacob I bought for $200 as a set (very very expensive for a college graduate), and I STILL WEAR IT TO INTERVIEWS.
If you ever see me in an interview, I basically have the same outfit I’ve ever worn to every interview in the past 8 years and only the shoes and accessories have changed.
The last time I tried to put on the suit though, it was a bit obscene as I put on some weight, but I think it fits again now….
Other than that, I don’t have “investment” pieces. I just have classic pieces I keep wearing over and over again.
