I am a huge fan of this quote, I can’t even tell you the number of times that I have bought items of clothing because they were on special and then never gone on to wear them! Or wore them once and then they were put in the back of a drawer never to be seen again.
The items of clothing in my wardrobe that I love and wear the most are more expensive but quality items. One thing I never buy a lot of but spend more on is shoes! Boots especially! Every two years I buy myself a new pair of boots, usually in the dollar range between $200 – $400. My boots are totally my splurge item and I wear them to work every day through winter for two seasons before I allow myself the indulgence of choosing a new pair to take their place (by that time they are usually so worn out from being so loved!). A good pair of boots can totally change up your style every season so I try to get a different colour and style every time.
This year I switched from a classic pair of pointed knee high black boots with significant heel for these:
I love love love them! So comfortable but stylish at the same time! Yes, not the cheapest but certainly better than 4 pairs of boots I never wear!
What is your indulgence wardrobe item and are you a buy less, choose well kinda gal or do you spend less and buy more?
