...unless you see yourself wearing it in the next 5 years, don't buy it! I only buy things made of materials which are natural (as much as possible), and which can be mended if they break. Ideally items I can pass on to my children or grandchildren. I'm a hoarder and I really struggle when getting rid of things, because I always wonder if an item could be useful for an editorial. I collect a lot of vintage to use for references when I work with designers too.
