splurge and steal

So I've posted before about how I stick to a wish list for pretty much all of my purchases, especially for more pricey items. I usually only buy 1-2 of those items a month because I stick to a budget. And in case you are wondering, bloggers do get paid and that's where I get most of my spending money. I make a small commission off of items that are purchased from my blog or via Instagram. That's actually one of the questions I get asked the most by people who know me in real life. I do LOVE fashion + style but this little blog does require a lot of time so I do get "paid" in commission and free products so that I can keep it going. So there you go, full disclosure. {insert emoji smiley face}

I did end up with the black Target wedges that I posted about last week. They were less than $25 {a steal!} and just as cute as the more expensive version. I chose the black because after looking at the shoes in my closet, I realized I didn't have any black summer shoes. I got them in the mail yesterday and I love them! Great quality for the price AND they're comfortable! I also got my splurge item in the mail yesterday too so it was just a happy mail day! I have been eyeing this gorgeous Rebecca Minkoff bag for at least six weeks. It's been on my wish list but I kept debating whether or not I should really spend the money on it since it's more than I typically spend on a bag. After spending quite a bit of time shopping online, I couldn't find anything that I loved as much as it so I just decided to go for it. It's even better in person! The leather is so soft and the tassels are perfect. It also comes with a strap so it can be carried as a clutch or worn as a crossbody. Sorry in advance for carrying this bag on repeat. It's my new favorite!

What kinds of items do you like to splurge on?

  1. I was seriously over the moon with these wedges. I didn't have huge expectations but they arrived and I am digging the material. Can't wait to get a pedicure so I can put them on!
