Picking investment pieces from a designer collection for a value high street store such as H&M requires some thought. On first glance of the whole collection it all just looks stunning and beautiful. On second glance you have to look for certain features that will make pieces worth buying, very wearable and a multi wear item that you may be able to keep long term.

Why I chose the Couturenet investment pieces.
The silver shoes appear to be well made with nice stitching, leather lined and leather soles, silver is a timeless colour and the design classic and elegant, but still very Versace. I also picked key items that show the signature gold Versace button, like the shoes and the bracelet. The cocktail ring is a good price for such an exquisite piece of jewellery. The scarf is pure silk and again a typical Versace design and colour palette. All of these pieces are multi wear items and very wearable items that will complement different day to night outfits, all at the right price.
