We’ve made it to the end of Feb and the last of #FEBFAVES! Since my birthday is this weekend, let’s talk about what items I love to splurge on! No one wants to buy something just to have it be destroyed within months, forcing a repurchase. After adding up all of those rebuys, you probably spent more than if you initially invested in better quality rather than the f21 dupe (but there’s NO, I repeat, NO SHAME in dupes!!). I rarely splurge so when I do, I save it for certain things and want to share them with you guys!
If you’ve followed me since the beginning or even from a week ago, you probably know that I can’t live without my gold jewelry, especially my gold hoops! Ever since I was little, I’ve been a little sensitive to fake jewelry so I have to be careful with what I get. I try to keep my everyday jewelry real gold or at least gold plated so it doesn’t irritate me and I can keep it on while I shower or sleep. Just like denim though, I love having options so I’ll always have some fun, inexpensive costume jewelry to mix in.
Current favorite brands for quality jewelry without draining your bank account are: Mejuri*, Soko, and Emery Studio

If you asked me a couple of years ago about any of my jeans, I’d most likely tell you they’re from Zara. I didn’t think designer jeans were really worth it… until I owned a pair of actual good denim! The difference is apparent in the fit, the wear, and longevity. Don’t get me wrong, I still own many non designer jeans and they’re in heavy rotation but, I make sure to always have a few good pairs on hand.
Current favorite brands for solid jeans are: AGOLDE (prob my fave!), Pistola, Boyish, and good ol’ Levis
This is probably where my biggest splurges are spent on because I found myself repurchasing shoes SO often and spending so much more than I anticipated. I need sturdy shoes that hold up at least a year or two (preferably longer!) and that I can wear for a few hours without blood seeping through my socks, ew and ouch. Last year was the first time I treated myself to pricer designer boots that I’ve eyed for a hot sec and I’ve yet to regret the purchase! Shoes can make or break a look so it’s important for me to have quality shoes that hold up!
Current favorite brands for shoes/ boots: By Far and Intentionally Blank
These splurges are few and far in between but when I finally save enough to jump on something, it brings me so much joy! I'm really trying to stick to quality over quantity- for myself, my wallet, and the environment! Not only does it help small business owners but it helps reduce your eco footprint which is a win win in my book.
And that wraps up my first #FEBFAVES series! I love sharing these with you all and I hope you loved reading these. I don't know, maybe #FEBFAVES will continue on but with a new name... ;)
