I was recently contacted to start a partnership with Shopbop. My first thought was, "Did they get the wrong email address?" Thankfully they didn't. Or at least they were kind enough to pretend otherwise. So of course, there wasn't any way I was going to say no. Shopbop has amazing designer brands, free 3 day shipping, and free returns. Many of the items on the site are typically out of my price range, but there are definitely items that are worth the splurge for quality like jewelry, bags, and shoes. When you are on a budget you really need to pick and choose what is worth spending your money on. Otherwise going cheap for everything is going to result in replacing items over and over again. I've been learning that as I have been refining my closet over the past few years. Sometimes you get lucky and find an amazing piece while thrifting. Sometimes the perfect piece is something you have to dig a little deeper in your pocketbook for. And if you love it and it makes you feel good that's all that really matters.
What are some things you splurge on?

See how else I've worn these pants here, herehere, and here!

  1. That blazer looks amazing paired with the blush blouse! I good blazer, pants, an lbd a skirt and quality shoes (all in dark, classic colors) are definitely on my "investment list"

  2. I really like blush, and this jacket is very cool. I find that I'll "splurge" a little if I've been searching for something for a long time and finally realize that spending a little more is worth it. I just purchased a pair of HUE leggings for a higher price than I would have normally, but because they haven't arrived yet, I'm still questioning it!

  3. I can't get enough of blush lately! I think it's an unexpected color for fall but I love it! I agree with Inge. If there is something that has been on my wishlist for awhile but I can only find a "splurge" version, sometimes I'll go for it. Granted my version of splurging is probably others' version of budget shopping. Haha.

  4. I try not to splurge on anything for myself, but I like to buy nice things for my daughter. She wants a Kate Spade bag for Christmas. I am hoping to find one on sale :) I love this blush color! It is so nice for all seasons! I am hosting a Jamberry party and giveaway this week. Stop by and enter to win a sheet for your fall manicures. My daughter and I are totally addicted to them(: Susan

  15. Congrats on the shopbop collab! I agree that sometimes its better in the long run not to go the cheaper route all the time unless its a "quick" fashion trend that you want to try that may not last a while. Love that jacket on you!

  16. I'm probably right there with you! Typically my husband has to convince me to buy anything over $30!

  17. Very cool that you will be collaborating with ShopBop! I think the only time I've bought something from them is when I got Tory Burch earrings for my sister's birthday last year! Ha!
    As for me, I am typically more willing to spend money on a well-fitting coat or something that I will wear on a daily basis.

  22. They are all 'rented' from Le Tote. It's fun to try them out though! And Shopbop is a great site for purchasing designer items! I am so excited to be working with them!
