As the season transition from Summer to Fall draws closer, my affinity towards minimal, luxe basics grows stronger. I've always emphasized that the best investments are enduring, timeless and worn often. That's the ideal level of ROI ("return on investment") you can get, in the world of fashion and apparel.

I’ve recently been obsessed with shopping on, a user friendly, Pinterest-like shopping interface that makes it easy to cull through a ton of affordable, high-end investment items. I turned to them during my hunt for my next luxe sweater investment and within an hour of riveting searching, I located my desired sweater and bought it!

But why stop there? The generous team over at Beso decided to team up with me to give away three $50 giftcards! That's a chance to win $50 towards your next investment item from any retailer -- from Neiman Marcus to Mr. Porter! Good luck :)!
