Don't really splurge much. I wear a lot of the same things I wore 5-10 years ago.

I like going to Goodwill and buying old t-shirts that I can cut up and make into cute little crop tops. Not really splurging, but sometimes it can add up.

The crocodile made an awful lot of money with the sudden reversal of the Euro last night. I've zoned in on two items, thus. The first one's a little stretch, so I may settle for the second one and use the money on my upcoming trip home.

I waited far too long hoping item#1 will go into clearance. Never did.

Splurge.... Most shoes/boots, handbags, undergarments, jeans/trousers, cashmere sweaters, athletic socks, ski attire, jackets, swimsuits

Bargain... Flip flops, trendy/costume jewelry, sunglasses (lose them all the time so stopped splurging), scarves, hats, pj's, t-shirts, cotton skirts, swim coverups, beach bags/luggage (don't want to travel with expensive looking luggage that looks like it may contain something of value).

It would be nice to be able to afford to splurge but I have never really been able to do so...my specialty is looking good on a budget.

One thing I have learnt is that cost does not necessarily equal quality, or style.

Having said all that I would try for the best quality I could afford for two items only being black pants and a leather jacket.

The crocodile's latest of bargains in his mail box. Awesome and slick slim tie clip from eBay. Designer item for just 4.50 and 1.50 shipping.



And the crocodile's set eyes on a suit for June. They have the same item in their brick and mortar store for far less in the 600 range, which the crocodile has deemed acceptable, rather than sticking to designer terminology and getting the same suit for triple the cost which is nuts.


Burberry - SLIM FIT WOOL BLEND PINSTRIPE SUIT

This will be da splurge side of things.

I buy almost all my clothing, pocketbooks, shoes, and accessories cheaply at secondhand, thrift, or consignment these days EXCEPT underwear (some things I prefer to be the original wearer!). I splurge on a good watch (yes, some of us still wear them) and on getting hi-lights and a great haircut.

That sounds fun. You can make it unique to yourself. I wish I was good enough at altering clothing to do that.

I'll splurge on any item that's worth it, but the one thing I never skimp on is a purse.

I splurge on everything. Clothes, shoes, beauty. I usually look for cheap belts and socks. Stuff like that I can't justify spending more than $30 on, I mean, they're just socks.
