One Thing | A Rose in Bloom


Do you have a single item of clothing that just feels like a part of you? One thing that has always been your style, so much that you don't think you will ever drift apart from it? Everyone does, and if you don't, it's time to find which piece is a part of you.

For me, it's a pair of Betsey Johnson combat boots that I bought as an impulse purchase on my birthday one year at the Betsey Johnson store in Nashville. They were on sale, and the stylists insisted that these combat boots were screaming my name.  Normally, I refuse to impulse buy, especially at a price range like Betsey Johnson (pre bankruptcy!), but something seemed so.... right. So, I did a rare thing - I whipped out a credit card and bought them. I had never done that before, haven't done that since, and I doubt it will ever happen again. However, over 3 years later, these boots are still my number one choice out of everything in my entire closet. They transform every outfit into something tougher and edgier. Made from real leather, they are now molded to my feet for maximum comfort. We have had so many adventures together, and styling has been a dream. I will be sad to see them go, whenever they finally die on me.

What about you? What piece has become a part of you?

P.S. I even got an extra discount for my birthday. See? It was meant to be.

  1. I think my one piece is my jeans! I seriously live in Hollister jeans and I would almost rather wear jeans than anything else!

  3. those boots are really gorgeous! I can totally see how they can be worn almost all the time...I have an old pair of dr. martens that always come in handy and I also bought one pair of boots more similar to those and they served me nicely so far

    ...I'm not prone to impulse shopping either, but when my husband tells me to buy a pair of shoes I usually listen to his because he seems to know what he is talking about:)

  5. What a great story! Yes, they were truly meant to be yours. Actually I was thinking but don´t really know if there is one piece of clothing that´s almost like a part of me. I guess I am a huge sneakers girl, so whenever I find a pair I really love, I wear them until they almost fall off my feet - so there´s that :)

  6. I love when something you own becomes a part of you rather than you getting lost in what you own. It's a good sign and a true testament to buying something for the right reason (even if you had to splurge). This past Christmas I bought my first real designer bag, a See by Chloe, and I use it every single day. I haven't felt one ounce of buyer's remorse since.

    1. That's how you know you made the right decision. It feels good to know the right decision was made, isn't it?

  7. I think my one piece of clothing that has become a part of me is also a pair of boots! I bought them almost 4 years ago, when I first came to Buenos Aires to visit, and I remember thinking they were kind of expensive and would I ever wear them? They just felt "too cool" for me. So I had them for some months before I started wearing them, and once I started, I couldn't stop! Sadly, over the past few months they have started to really show their age, and today (ironically) I was walking and felt something funny....well the sole of one of the boots broke in a bad way. I knew it was going to be time for their retirement soon, but I didn't think today would be the day! I guess that means it's time to find my new "one thing"! Cool post concept, Liz!

    Kisses from Buenos Aires xx

  9. It's cool hearing your story behind a piece of clothing. That makes the item even more special.
