My tips: Saving vs. Splurging

June 21, 2013
Happy Friday! Shopping this weekend?  As you might have seen in my birthday post here sometimes a girl needs to splurge, especially on a birthday bag! :) Retail Therapy, however, can be done by finding inexpensive pieces too.

Check out My tips for splurging vs. saving!

1. Splurge on classic & basics staples-
Find items that you know you will wear all the time and will have forever so this will justify the spend. 
-Black cardigan
-Black blazer
-White blazer
-Great pair of jeans
-Classic white tee shirt and white button up
-Tan Trench coat
-Classic handbag
-Nude patent leather heels
-Black booties

2. Save on trendy items-
Loving the peplum trend that you have seen in every magazine and/or runway and on every celebrity? Great! Forever 21, H&M, and Target have great and affordable trendy tops that won't break your bank and you won't feel like your out of a lot of money when it makes its way to the back of your closet next season!

3. Splurge on something you REALLY REALLY love!
The saying goes "If you love something then let it go," or something like that! And I believe sometimes this can be true when you're shopping including shopping vintage. If you see something in the store and you're like I gotta have it, maybe don't buy it right away! Walk around the rest of the store, check out other stores for similar styles, maybe even go home and come back a week later! Think about it some more. "What can I wear it with?" "How many times can I wear it? And then you should have a clear answer on if it's going to be worth it!

What do you like to save and splurge on?
