Necessary Splurge Items

If you were to dive into my closet you would find an array of clothing ranging from haute couture to Target tees. I totally believe in finding the steals however there are certain where you cannot cheat high-end design and fabrics. So, I have gone through my overly-crowded closet and picked out the things that without a doubt the money I spent was well worth it.
This is a list of items I think are well worth every penny and should be an investment for every PG's closet. 

1) My black Christian Louboutin Pigalle 120 Patent Pump.
I believe every woman deserves the perfect patent high-heel. This shoe is classic and always in style. I love to wear it with a suit or with my boyfriend jeans. Every PG deserves at least one pair of red-soles in their closet.

2) In love with my Burberry Bomber jacket.

The only thing in this photo I love more than this jacket is my best friend. I think a leather jacket is a staple in any closet. They can be dressed up or dressed down! Not too mention extremely practical. 

3) A Mary Poppins' purse. Every girl needs a good handbag that can fit her entire life! My personal favorite is, obviously, my Birkin bag. However, one of my favorite more reasonably priced carry-all handbags is the Drew Satchel by Diane Von Furtsenburg. 
I am crazy about this bag. I throw everything in it! I love that you can throw it over your shoulder or rock it on your wrist. Not too mention this is the color I have and it's spectacular!

Those are my top three splurges...keep your eye on the blog for a few more that might be coming out :) 
Remember you are totally worth indulging in a few nice pieces for your closet!
