(The following is an excerpt from a piece i wrote for nosacrificebags.com)
As much as I love shopping, (I mean, how many of us don’t?!) over the years I have grown to increasingly appreciate quality vs quantity when it comes to purchasing items for my wardrobe.
Having worked several years as a stylist, it has been my responsibility to find good, interesting and fitting pieces for clients and editorial shoots, each project being of a completely different concept, but each equally fun.
Following each project, my interest in accessories grew and grew. I always knew I wanted to own my own business one day, so I decided to take this passion and develop my business using this idea as the platform. With this notion, I launched Boyajian Trend Gallery last year, an online boutique housing unique collections I curate from independent designers around the world.
I love to think of clothes as blank canvases.
I will wear the same clothes over and over and just change it up through wearing varying accessories. You can transform the same look in to many ways purely with accessories, be it your handbag, jewelry, scarves, shoes, a hat, whatever your preference may be.
I always recommend you invest in quality pieces when it comes to accessories, jewelry and purses especially. I personally won’t shop frequently, but when I do, I love to find cool, unique items that I can carry through for years to come. I want my pieces to last, so I’ll spend a little more with the peace of mind that they’re not going to fall apart after a few uses.
