I’m not one of those people who only save their “good stuff” for special occasions only. If you do that you won’t get to fully enjoy them. The only time I do that is if I have a piece of very expensive jewelry and don’t want the risk of losing it. Besides that, I wear whatever I want at any occasion. This post kind of goes with a past post I wrote saying to mix and match fancy things with casual items to create a new look. Here are a few things that I recommend splurging on what not to splurge on.
1. Clothing- Most people love sale and clearance items, as do I sometimes, but when I shop at them I double check the item on how it’s made and if the material feels and looks cheap. Also make sure if there is any tears, snags, and holes. I don’t go out seeking for bargains on clothes. If I see something I really like, I’ll definitely get it but I’m not one of the those people who like to shop just to shop.
I also believe quality vs. quantity. I’d rather spend more money on something like a new handbag or a dress that I’ll know that will last me a long time, than buying a dozen cheap items that will far apart in a month if I not sooner.
2. Jewelry, High heels, and Handbags- I feel the same way about my accessories as I do my clothing. Like I said before, if you only save certain items just for special occasions, you’ll never feel comfortable and/or that “special occasion” may never happen. So enjoy what you have now. For example, if you are wearing just a sweater and jeans, throw on some sparkly six inch heels, some diamond earrings, and a good quality handbag, and instantly your casual look will look more polished and you’ll feel a lot more confident.
After reading this post, I hope it gave you some ideas and inspired you on how to put together new looks and to enjoy everything you have.
