It's National Splurge Day--What Will You Splurge On?
June 18, 2010
A good excuse to drop some dough is National Splurge Day (today) — how convenient that it’s also pay day. Get your credit card out and let ‘er rip–the shopaholic’s holiday only happens once a year. Here’s what our staff wants to splurge on:
My great-grandmother collected Emilio Pucci pieces in the ’60s (she even had Pucci stationery). Though I never knew her, (thus never inherited the stuff) I’ve always admired her style, so I’m starting my own collection, with this Emilio Pucci bikini ($490).
Jeanine, editor of MomFinds: “I’m really getting into maxi dresses, like this Corey Lynn Calter ($240) dress. Not flowy empire waist ones that make me look pregnant again. I like that this one has a belt to define the waist.”
Sometimes splurges on timeless pieces, like this tank watch, are the way to go. Intern Alyssa needs a new watch, and loves how classic this Tag Heuer watch is ($1885, down from $2900) is. If she wears it for a lifetime, it’ll be worth the hefty price tag.
SHEfinds intern Brittany loves this Alice + Olivia Tess tie dress ($396) because of its flattering cinched waist. “The one shoulder makes my torso look longer, and the color enhances a tan.”
Editorial Assistant Aria can’t get this Chloe bag ($345.99, down from $495) out of her mind. “I can see myself wearing this all year long–the leather is buttery, and it’s big enough to hold everything I need, while still small enough to wear out at night.
