No regrets on that one. Hoping to add the classic Chanel 2.55 flap handbag to the list soon. jJuliet 7 years Two dresses and a coat for a little over $100 each leeluvfashion 7 years Back in early '04 when the worn out, ripped & faded paint detailed jeans were instyle, I bought a pair from GUESS for $115. I've been tight on cash for awhile now so I haven't splurged that much; I've gotten a few bargains: Nicole Miller pink short-sleeve cardigan was $125 and I bought it for $30; Nine West lavender pointed flats were $85 and I paid $30. I have recieved some pricey gifts: Marc Jacobs Jacket $360, Marc Jacobs Sweater $200, a collection of 4 Dooney & Bourke Handbag est. at $145 a piece. I also won a Alexis Bittar silk-wrapped chain necklace est.$200 from a People magazine giveway. robs1325 7 years Even though I am only 30, I have a soft spot for St. John couture. I always get it on sale, but the prices are still sky high. AKirstin 7 years The most expensive things I ever bought were a coat for $200 and boots for $180. Spending more than $300 or so on one item seems idiotic. govickygo 7 years Well my grandparents buy my expensive things..like my gucci, LV, Fendi, and Prada purses. They also got me a $1,500 gucci watch too. But for my own spending, the most I've spent (that I can think of right now) is on a Betsey Johnson dress, which was only about $100 from Nordstrom Rack. Also like a pair of boots for about $100. I don't like to spend too much money on my stuff. I'm a bargain shopper. TrickyTara627 7 years i used all of my high school graduation money to buy the large marc jacobs stella tote, which was a little over a grand....and to this day i still carry it and its my fav thing ever...im a bit of a splurger but that by far was the most, all other things have been 500 or less...and now that im in my 3rd year of college im more of an urban outfitters girl these days ha ha astray_image 7 years I can't bring myself to spend more than $300 right now (my Burberry trench, camel hair coat, LV bag, Prada shoes were gifts). If I had an occasion to wear the clothes, I would let myself splurge. carhornsinapril 7 years a gorgeous kooba bag on super discount for $400. petite42 7 years P.s..... if I could find a local shop that could custom-make clothing just for me, I would pay double or triple what I pay now (would save me all the endless wasted hours trying on things). petite42 7 years Max for bags=$500, but it has to be something classic I'll get use out of for years to come, nothing trendy. I would spend more if I found something I thought wouldn't go out of style quickly, but I haven't. Max for shoes=$300, because shoe trends also change too frequently, and they wear out faster than a bag anyway! Max for clothes=sky's the limit, if it fits well and flatters and isn't too trendy.... I do not wait for sales either. But, reality is, few top designers make clothes to fit my proportions so I'm usually resigned to shopping in Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, JCrew... places that sell petites. I am contemplating a splurge on a camel cashmere coat... if I can find one that wouldn't require tons of $ to tailor just right. So far, I haven't! nrmunch55 7 years A coach bag for 500 nrmunch55 7 years A coach bag for 500 juliegal 7 years this is how i justify my sometimes explosive (1000 + ) spending....CPW = cost per wear! it's all about the breakdown of cost per wear.....!! then it all equals out..... :-) @ least that's what i tell myself to feel better about insane spending.... RoyalBlueMoss 7 years buy* RoyalBlueMoss 7 years buy* RoyalBlueMoss 7 years b RoyalBlueMoss 7 years b RoyalBlueMoss 7 years I don't like to spend alot on one item but I did but a python bag for $1,400.00 once. tarltonjwade 7 years my most recent impulse purchase was my YVES SAINT LAURENT CROC EMBOSSED TRIBUTE priced a little over $1200 and my GUCCI HOBO priced a little over $900 cnyc1a 7 years I spend my money on handbags and shoes. I can't spend over a 1000+ on a single clothing items unless it's a leather jacket, coat, or special dress. Handbags I put no price on I have a total of 4 Chanel 2.55 bag's in different colors and 3 Balenciaga Bags. The most expensive pair of shoes I own I still haven't received because I'm waiting for them but there the Balenciaga Cage Spring Shoes. Lovely_1 7 years My grad dress was $500...but it was so worth it because it was the prettest there! LittleLady12 7 years A $700 Phillip Lim dress. I absolutely love it, but it's rare for me to spend that much on one thing! loveritz 7 years I spent $1000+ on my gorgeous Balenciaga bag, and I still carry it 2 years later. I felt guilty at first (I'm Catholic, so it comes naturally lol), but now I have absolutely no regrets! juliex0x0 7 years I spent over $700 on a leather jacket by jigsaw and I don't regret a cent!
