Most Helpful Girl
I stay away from clothing & handbags that are "trendy" because they lose value and "go out of style" weeks or months after being released, but, I don't mind splurging on classics.
For instance, I wouldn't buy a spring-summer 2012 Chanel handbag because by May they'll be introducing the fall season, 12F items, but I'd gladly buy the Chanel flabbag 2.55 or WOC because they're classics that never go out of style and have been in style for over 40 years.
When I buy converse, I won't buy the limited editions or special releases. I'll buy black, white, green and red.
But there are certain casual items that I'll buy. I'll buy a different Lilly dress each week for football games/mixers, but I wouldn't buy trendy casual clothes from like, Forever21 or Papaya(cause they go out of style).
I also don't mind splurging on pumps. I love Steve Madden but for sorority recruitment, my mom agreed to buy me 1-2 pairs of Louboutins(for Skit & preference) because they're the most comfortable and universal.
I'll also splurge on jeans(although I'm a Levis girl). I don't mind spending money on True Religion or 7forallmankind(I don't care much for them though) cause they last forever and are worth the investment.
Also, yoga pants are a good investment(lululemon)
Ok, in short, if it's worth the investment I don't mind buying. I also don't mind buying t-shirts(graphic) from Walmart or Target.
