I go through a ton of clothing. Part of the reason that I buy so much clothing is that I get tired of wearing the same thing over and over again. It doesn’t matter to me if an item is well made, or that it costs a lot of money. So, for that reason, I am always trying to decide when to splurge and when to save. I figure that a lot of you might be the same way, so today’s blog post will help you to decide what is worth spending on and when you should save.
The first thing that I always ask myself is, while I wear this over and over again. Trendy items will come and go, so those are definitely a save item for me. But, anything that is a classic piece that I will be able to wear a lot and just add a trendy piece here and there is worth the extra splurge. One of the first things that comes to mind is a beautiful cashmere sweater. I try to invest in a cashmere sweater every year since this is an item that I will get my wears.
Also, I will splurge for a nice winter coat. I am not in a northern climate were is stays cold for long periods, but I still want something that will keep me warm. With my daughter living in Alaska, I have seen the prices that she pays for coats, and I almost choke since they are so expensive. But, that is an essential item for her, especially one that is waterproof since it rains there a lot. You do NOT want to get wet in a cold climate.
I will also splurge for a nice quality leather handbag. Even though I will change from one to the other frequently, I will shell out the money when I know that the bag will last me for years. I feel the same way about leather boots. The only thing that you have to watch for when you are buying boots is the look of the toe and the size of the heel. Pointy toes might be the rage this year, but I’ve seen square-toed shoes starting to trending.
Joe is a watch and sunglasses guy. Those are two items that he will splurge on, while I am not one to spend as much on those. I have been eyeing a watch, though, but so far, I can’t bring myself to splurge over $1,000.00 on a watch. Am I crazy, is that how much people spend on a nice watch???
Today starting at 9:30 ET is the day when EVERYONE can shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. There are still a ton of great items, so don’t be bummed if some of your choices are sold out. I have already done a post or two that you might want to revisit if you are going to be shopping today. This post show’s you a lot more of these boards that include jeans, boots, and loungewear. And, this post shows you some of the items that I have already received and how I styled them. ***A huge amount just came in, so I’ll be taking photos of that tomorrow, and I’ll try to get them on Thursday post. Cross your fingers.
Because I know that everyone’s budget is different, I am doing a couple of over and under boards so that you can pick what works best for you. Hopefully, these boards will help you decide when to splurge and when to save.
Most of the items come in more than one color, so click to check that out. I try to pick colors that will show the items off to their best advantage. Also, I tried to pick things that had stock and sizes, but they might go quickly this morning.
I am curious…is today your first day to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, have you already shopped the sale, OR, you don’t plan on shopping the sale at all?\
