@tksjewelry: and @letigre: Yes, it’s Burberry.
@letigre: “As long as you’re not buying 20 items a year, I don’t see the problem on splurging on something.“
I completely agree – unless you can comfortably buy 20+ pieces a year in which case jealous! I usually buy 2-4 really expensive items per year and I try to make sure they are classic, staple pieces that I will wear/use for years to come.
@MrsBuesleBee: “it would have to be an item that the “price per wear” would get way down eventually. Bags boot suits and coats are example of items like that So you have my approval 🙂“
I’ll let my SO know the girls on the Bee approve my purchases!
I think the ‘price per wear’ is important too, as well as the ‘price per year’ – 1 pair of $100 boots each year is the same as a $1,000 pair of boots that last 10 years.
@Jijitattoo: “Frankly, we live in a world where people are starving, and homeless, and that makes it impossible for me to justify buying designer anything.“
You can apply this to a lot of things we in first world countries spend our money on.
@lionsheart: “Edited to add: It has nothing to do with ‘showing off’, because for example, I love this bag, it’s a pre-order Alexander McQueen bag. It’s $4,000 and there’s no name, no emblems or anything, no one would know I had a $4,000 bag, unless you’re into designer’s and fashion you may not even know who Alexander McQueen is, I just love the bag, and trust me the quality is like nothing you’ll ever find in a less expensive bag.“
Love the bag and speaking of Alexander McQueen, I am lusting after this dress of his;
