Splurge or not to splurge?

First off, splurge is a weird word.
Second, when I say splurge, I'm talking like $50. Not $1,000 like magazines. 
Because let's face it, I work in retail twice a week and I certainly do not have the money to afford anything that is $800 for ONE item. 
These are the items you can allow yourself to splurge on:

If you are a person that carries your life in your bag everyday,
find something nice that you will be able to use repeatedly and goes with everything. 
It will be worth the $50. 
Aldo sells great handbags that will last 
a good amount of wear and tear for just around our budget! 

Special Occasion Dresses. 
Dresses should be splurged on for the sake of finding something that has a great fit and is a classic staple piece that can be worn over and over again to a number of different events. 
Modcloth has several cute dresses for any occasion for under $50.
I love their vintage aesthetic.

For the sake of your comfort, you might have to buy shoes that are not $15.
Shop online for unlimited options when on the hunt. (I suggest trying on shoes at the store first to figure out your size as well as if they are a decent quality before buying online.) 

Aldo has great basics as well as some other fun colors and prints, plus I often can find shoes in clearance that were originally out of my budget but now are affordable!

Also, only splurge on things you loveeee.
Go shop!

  1. Love, love, love Modcloth!!! If I could, I would purchase one of every item on their site. Of course I would have to give away all the maxi dresses BUT STILL! I agree on the shoes as well. If it's a fun shoe that you know you won't wear often, don't splurge, but if you're looking for a shoe that you can pair with almost anything, I pays to spend a little more to buy the one that's just right.

    Loved this.
