*Let’s be honest here, too! A splurge for me is any shoe over $30, a bag that is over $50, and clothes over $40 or so. Each of us have a number in our head that constitutes a splurge or save item, mine tends to hover around anything not from Target being a splurge;)
I also consider anything leopard to be a classic (see story above!) These leopard boots from Ted and Muffy are the perfect game changing boot. They jazz up a simple outfit, work well with other patterns (LOVE mixing plaid and leopard in the Fall), and ankle boots look great with dresses and pants alike. I had a cheaper pair of leopard ankle boots, but found the pattern was off and they just looked cheap. Well done leopard is hard to find, surprisingly, and worth the money if you find the perfect pair. Sam Edelman makes a pair of their Petty boots in leopard that are similar (and a bit less expensive,) than this pair.
