Every week I ask you whether you would save or splurge on one thing or another. This got be thinking about my best splurge. My splurges have been few and far between the last few years, but there is one I'm really glad I made.
I bought a Jessica Simpson Saucer Button Wool Blend coat (pictured) at Macy's the winter before last. I paid a bit less than the $200 price tag (which I believe was a sale price to begin with) since I worked at Macy's at the time, but it was a huge purchase for me (working at Macy's, I wasn't quite making the big bucks). It was also one of the best purchases I've ever made. Now only is it warm and well made (it still looks new after much wear), but it also still looks just as stylish as the day I bought it because it's the perfect style for me (bell sleeve, skirted, big buttons)! I see many more winters to come with this coat, which means it cost me much less than buying a cheap coat every year.
What and how much was your best splurge?
In case you love this coat as much as I do, Nordstrom still has it listed on their website. It's unavailable right now, but the fact that it's listed suggests it could be back this winter.
