I'd rather splurge every once in a while on a chic expensive purse or pair of shoes/sandals for special occasions.Maybe pay for a piece of jewelery but this is not the usual.I love my cheap ass accessories lol

Some of my cheapy accessories are better than some of my expensive accessories!

Not always. I have some items that were less than $10 that I wouldn't do without and they look awesome (one is even a purse)! Then there are my other more expensive items that look awesome and are of great quality that I wouldn't live without. I guess it all just depends.

Fab finds can be made on the cheap. You've got to have an eye for what works and how well made it is. Most of my jewelry, like brokenbracelet, comes from places like Icing, Target, Claire's, and even I really think you can hone a keen eye for inexpensive accessories.

I actually buy most of my jewelry from indie designers. It's always unique and put together so nicely, as well as generally being in the lower price range.

I love stores like Claire's and Icing and places like that for trendy that I think of it, I don't have any "real" jewelry!! So sad lol

I go cheap as often as possible with trends. Melissa Rae: I'm glad to see I'm not the only Payless shopper!!! I actually love thrift stores. You never know what you might find.

Quality is important when it comes to shoes and handbags, but as for accessories, I go cheapie when it's something trendy and splruge on classics that I know I'll have for a long time

I have a pair of earings I bought at a 99 c. store that look fabulous, everyone thinks they are real! It was a very lucky find, but I love them.

Some of the cutest stuff I own I've found at the totally cheapo stores. I get compliments on them all the time (payless shoes!) and when I tell people where I got them, they don't believe me! I never limit myself to certain stores or labels when it comes to clothes and accessories.

funny- glam sugar I just read your comment and realize that I basically requoted your "classic vs trendy stuff". So true, though. I can't bear to pay too much for something I'll wear one season.

No way- I like to mix it up. I'll spend on classic pieces but go for cheaper trendy stuff. I had fun the last few months ordering cheap jewelry and hair accessories form forever21. They have some cute stone/bead necklaces and bracelets in fun colors. I wish H & M would sell online already- I can never get over there.

Doesn't have to be expensive - there are cheap accessoires that can look like million dollars - apart from handbags though:) ..

It depends on how it's made. Some expensive stuff is made very poorly and vice versa. I do tend to spend more money on classic pieces and less on trendy stuff.

I tend to splurge more on accessories than clothes, especially bags and jewelry. Return the shoes? I can't talk to you when you're hysterical.

the only accessory that i really rationalize splurging on are bags. and that is only because i believe i will hand it down to my daughter some day, and she will love me so much for holding on these vintage bags for her to use.

Absolutely not! I almost always buy my jewelry from H&M, New Look, Target, and in the Macy's sales ... BUT you do have to be careful because some cheap jewelry/bags look just that: cheap. So you have to have a trained eye (I take along my mom hehehhe)
