#onepieceamonth investment no. 3: American Vintage dots

onepieceamonth challenge American Vintage dots

Just in time. Found the May addition to my wardrobe at American Vintage. In full: women’s shirt Galione in Polka Dot Chili Pepper. Orange is the new
My third buy this year, part of my 2016 #onepieceamonth challenge, is for sure a piece that I will wear at least 30 times. Under a sweater or jacket, as a statement piece or over swimwear. I am a sucker for polka dots.#onepieceamonth American Vintage polka dots chili pepper

American vintage, the French way

Founded in 2005 by Mickaël Azoulay in France, who sought inspiration in the streets of the world to reinvent The Basics. I am a longtime fan of the American Vintage T-shirts in cotton/viscose mix. Soft to wear and the perfect model. Named after American States or Cities. My fav basic is the Jacksonville V-neck Tee.
Comprehensive and trendy, the collections are drawn in a pure style with authentic simplicity. The AV lines are designed by a fashion team seeking simplicity, novelty, feminity, easiness and movement. Dress in layers is their philosophy and who doesn’t like to be dressed in a loose fit? I do.

Not shopping is easy

It fascinates me how incredible easy it is to not shop for clothes. I now realise that most of my shopping was an almost thoughtless act. I lost the shopping luster but I am so much more happy with the items I purchased this year. The three items so far, I still have my January and February trump cards. The impact of watching the True Cost Documentary.
The word mindfull shopping pops up. I really think twice before I purchase, the item must tick all the boxes and to ask myself the  ‘will I wear this at least30 times?‘ question is to answer it. On the dot!
