A few things I learned the hard way

Quality doesn’t come cheap

Don’t buy cashmere

Don’t go shopping

If it’s not perfect, wait

Only buy from Nordstrom

Get everything tailored

Try on different silhouettes to see how they actually look on you

Think through the details

What’s next for my wardrobe?
