The difficulty comes when I realize that I have a closet full of "I need it now" purchases. So I'm trying to spend money less often on little "I'll forget about it in a season" things and to save for bigger purchases. Because when you think about it, it doesn't take very long for a lot of $60 "good deals" to add up to a brand new Louis Vuitton bag.
So here's Part I in a series about pricier investments in your wardrobe that you'll absolutely never regret. Sure, you have to save for them, but in 10 years, they'll still be the same lux classics and you'll love them even more than the day you bought them:
Bamford Drop-Waist LBD, $1995
Christian Louboutin, $700
Hermes Black 25 Birkin, ~$4,000; Black Chanel Jumbo Flap, $2695; Louis Vuitton Suhali Lockit PM, $2630, Marc Jacobs Blake, $995
