The main reason I decided to focus on fashion (and travel) on Dreaming of Dior is that lots of the bloggers that I admire wear clothes that I can’t afford. But, even though I refuse to spend a lot of cash on lots of items, there are some items that’re ok to splurge on.
I’m going to start with items that I’ll spend more than the normal $60 on and then I’ll move up to items that I’ll spend more than $100 on.
MORE THAN SIXTY
Yep, I’m that girl. I’ll splurge to take care of my skin, especially when it comes to my face. One thing that I’ve purchased for more than $60: Bobbi Brown’s Extra Repair Eye Cream. This product is an absolute favorite.
I’m also obsessed with Dior’s Miss Dior perfume.
While most of my skinnies are under $60, I have purchased denim (because everyone needs good jeans) that’ve been $60 or more. I think that, if the jeans fit and make you feel good, you should get them.
When I discovered petite jeans, I decided it was time to spend a little more. I guess we all have that moment.
Although it’s quite warm in Florida, there are a few cool mornings and nights. Adam and I travel too and this winter I’ll probably end up in the mountains at some point.
Outerwear is super important. And I’m totes ok with spending a bit more on outerwear.
I love the trench coat I picked up at Banana Republic Factory last year and I love the leather jacket I picked up a few years ago.
MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED
I’ve said it once and I’ll mention it again – when I find a pair of shoes (size 4 😐 ladies) I have to get them. I’ve spent over $100 on a lot of the shoes I own because I found them.
The ones that I’ve most noticeably spend more than $100 on? Tory Burch flats and any/all of the boots that I have.
Obvi, I’m also willing to spend more than $100 on a purse. I had a few Coach purses in my day and also love the Kate Spade bags I have. As you all know, I’m looking to really splurge on a designer purse…you can read about that here and here.
ITEMS I’D NEVER OVERPAY FOR?
I would never purchase a nice pair of sunnies for myself. I don’t lose them anymore but I do tend to carry smaller purses, which means there won’t be enough room for a case. And that would – obvi – mean that I’d risk scratching or damaging them.
Another thing that I won’t overspend on: accessories (hats, scarves, jewels, etc.). I tend to be a bit more minimal with the clothes that I wear so I end up purchasing trendier accessories.
Obvi, if I’m getting a super trendy hat (like those summertime, wide-brimmed hats with script across them), I shouldn’t waste a ton of money on it. It might not be cool next time around.
So…what are things you’re willing to splurge on? And what won’t you splurge on?
