|Louboutins. Serious investment.|
A couple people mentioned on my last Wednesday Want post that they do spend $80+ on jeans because the cost per wear ends up being pretty low. Nicer jeans end up being investment pieces.
The concept of an "investment piece" is one that I like in theory but struggle with in practice. Every once in a while (usually in January when it comes time to make resolutions) I'll get the idea that I'm going to invest in good clothing - jeans, a white button up, high quality shoes - and then it comes time to actually fork over my cash and I just. can't. do it. Aaron is the same way. He's been talking about getting a nice suit for at least a year but the thought of actually spending that much on a suit will probably prevent him from ever taking the plunge.
The other day I was thinking I'd like to have a couple pieces of nice jewelry-- the kind of thing I could pass on to a hypothetical daughter or granddaughter. And maybe that will happen someday but probably only if it's given to me as a gift. I doubt I'll ever spend the money on myself!
Do you own any investment pieces? How do you choose what is worthwhile to splurge on? If you had to choose ONE thing to splurge on, what would it be? Shoes? Jeans? Makeup? Skincare? Jewelry?
