not really sure where to post but I need some advice: I just got gifted a 1000€ gift card from Matchesfashion as a late graduation gift (having a single young aunt has its perks) but I am really clueless on what I need to buy. I was thinking on splurging them on a bag but there are some statement fall/winter items that I need in my clothes so I don’t know about that. Can someone who is familiar into luxury shopping help me out?
If I don’t get the bag, I was thinking: a leather blazer, good pair of jeans, some cachemire sweaters and a good pair of nude boots.

Leather blazer will age well and can go with anything (I’ve literally seen girls in London slip one on on top of their sports bra and shorts and look elegant). Cashmere sweaters are hard to look after in 4-5 years time, but if you go for one choose a neutral colour.

A bag could be a good investment but go with a bag that’s been popular for 10+ years (classic) rather than one that’s trendy.

You could also invest in some classic heels, or an iconic jumper like the Gucci one Princess Diana wore.

Aside from jewellery and investment bags from Hermes, my best purchase was a MaxMara camel coat with fur hood. I get so many compliments, they repair it for free, and it goes with everything.

I bought these boots online because the deal was great and they're actual leather. I had been looking for a pair as such and they fit like a glove with the shaft being small enough and not flopping around too loosely. Actually warm and comfy too with good grippy soles (without being too chunky for my taste) for challenging icy winters. In love!
