If I were a jacket – this is what I would look like

The itms I generally splurge on are leather bags, or some really great staple piece for my closet. Although it is usually the leather bags; I can’t even buy synthetic bags anymore. Price is definitely a deterrent for me when I find something I like and often times I am able to find a similar item for an affordable price. Then I spotted this jacket from Line & Dot on Kendi, a blogger and boutique owner. I was immediately drawn to it, but after seeing the price I knew I shouldn’t buy it. Except then I could NOT stop thinking about this jacket. (I also scoured the internet trying to find some similar jacket for a lower price..no luck). I kept mentally making outfits/ thinking of places to wear it/ envisioning myself in it. I looked at online everyday for about 2 weeks! Bloom, Kendi’s boutique, actually sold out of it during this process (and I was devastated of course). Then on Instagram they notified followers that they would be doing pre-order… And I bought it. I couldn’t say no! And its honestly even more gorgeous in person. To combat the high price tag (for me at least) I have been selling clothes, and so far I’ve made $40. (Only $140 to go til I’ve made my money back!)

I knew I made the right decision when my friend Lizzie told me “If you were a jacket thats what you would look like.”

Tell me – what do you splurge on? And do you think my jacket was worth it?

    This is amazing! Heck if it makes you happy sometimes you gotta splurge! I’m not a big splurger myself- but sometimes I should because the bargain things are never as good quality or last as long- so in the long run I feel like you almost spend the same $

      I totally agree- some things are worth the splurge. I plan on wearing this jacket until it falls apart!
