Investment dressing has never been so important. With the economy still stagnant, most of us are more reluctant than in previous seasons to buy into a trend that may be completely passé by fall.

When staying within your budget really counts, you can never go wrong with the classics. And what could be more classic than a stunning “Kelly Bag?”

Introduced by Hermès back in the 1930’s and then made wildly popular by legendary style icon Grace Kelly, this is a bag that truly stands the test of time. Simple and elegant, this bag can be carried –- literally — forever.

The Hermès price tag, however, puts an original completely out of my league (a pre-owned bag like the one pictured, will still run at least $5000). Lucky for me designer Michael Kors has reinterpreted the Kelly Bag for 2011 in an infinitely more affordable price range at just over $200.

Style that stands the test of time? Now that’s an investment!
