Just bought my first Louis Vuitton and it is by far my biggest splurge ever (but no regrets)!
What is your biggest splurge?
ps – cant wait to tell my boyfriend I’m gonna have a tough time covering my half of the rent this month 🙂

I dont think I have one. I have had a few “splurges.” I’m a mess when it comes to shopping. LOL

I usually a pretty thrifty person.. which is weird because I did NOT grow up in a money saving household but getting a good deal is like a game form me.. and I like expensive brands! I have (2) splurges though. The first one is my very big vera bradley collection. Now Vera’s aren’t super expensive (not like Louis Vuitton) but I have A LOT of it.
Secondly, I am not like a lot of girls in that I am obsessed with shoes. I have a very small shoe collection but they are all expensive.. Cowgirl boots (300), 2 pairs of uggs (200 each), 2 pairs of sperrys (70 each), rainbow sandals (50), Nike Shox (100). The only non-expensive shoes I have are flats for work… For some reaosn I have to have the expensive shoes..
My biggest splurge for the wedding is my airbrush make up, hiring a harpist and candy bar. These are not things that are even that expensive but I did not plan to do originally but am letting myself slurge on.

It’s been a long time since I really splurged on myself. Last year I used part of my tax refund to buy a banjo, I have a thing for collecting musical instruments. Since then all my extra money is being saved for the wedding. I may buy myself something nice with my tax refund, I’ve been wanting a ukulele!

a few years ago i splurged and bought myself a gorgeous pair of diamond stud earrings.
i had a few other smaller pairs but i wanted something a bit more substantial. they are 2.4ctw so over a carat for each ear. the quality and cut are amazing.
i wear them every day so i definitely get my money’s worth.

My dress was $450 over my budget, so that was a splurge.
Other than that, idk. I dont buy myself stuff often. I do splurge on other people though.

@Laur12: Me too! We bought my first LV in Paris while on our honeymoon. I convinced my Darling Husband it was necessary since it would become a heirloom to pass down to our children. It has a red lining and I wrote our names, the date and Paris on the inside pocket. So silly and romantic. I wanted a Chanel but the one I wanted was $3000 and that would be a huge, huge splurge!! My first 4 digit purse!! Eek. I’m so addicted now.

I’m pretty thrifty – even if I don’t have to be. It’s just my nature. I’d been lusting over a new pair of cowboy boots. I already have several pair (but I live in Texas and I wear them all of the time). And those pairs were bought on the cheap (found new pairs of high dollar boots on ebay for less than $100, etc.).
I’d been lusting after a particular pair of Old Gringo boots for about 2 years. I just couldn’t justify the price. However! When we got married, we decided to elope, and we weren’t spending much at all. So I splurged on the boots and wore them to our elopement, knowing I’d wear them all of the time after.
I love them so much! I always get compliments when I wear them.
Aren’t they lovely?

@Laur12: Our finances are somewhat combined, and we really splurge on travel like staying at Fairmont hotels/resorts, the Bellagio, etc.
I’m getting laser eye surgery in the summer, so that will be a bit of a splurge, but worth it (I hope!).
I own a number of Coach bags… I’ve bought 2 or 3 of them myself, so I’d consider that a bit of a splurge. I bought diamond earrings a few years ago… that was a bit of a splurge.

Our honeymoon was probably the biggest splurge. It was triple our normal week long vacation budgets.
