Irene: "Sorry... My parent's never taught me the value of a dollar..."
If you've gone shopping with me, or seen my room, or seen my car... you know that I love to shop.
My mother always tried to teach me to use money wisely~ Don't buy lots of cheap things. Invest your money on quality items. She wore designer clothes, had Chanel and LouisVuitton bags, and used Estee Lauder and Shiseido makeup. However, she wore them forever and didn't go on crazy shopping sprees. My father also never shops. I don't know where they found me, 'cause I love to shop!
Jewelery- I love buying huge fake jewelery, but you can't beat a pair of beautiful diamond solitaires or a strand of pearls. Every woman should have a pair of diamond and pearl earrings (You don't need to spend like crazy... but it's nice to have the real thing), and a strand of pearls.
You can find beautiful pearls for cheap at Overstock. Surprising.. but they really are very nice. And if you buy a diamond, make sure it's not a Blood Diamond! Do you want a little African child to have lost his limbs, family, or his life so you can sport some bling??? =(
Chanel- I love Chanel. It's my weakness. The quality.. The designs...It's unparalleled. I am willing to shell out lots of cash for Chanel.... but only if it's discounted and I get it at my favorite consignment stores! =)
So, there are definitely tons of ways you can spend your money. As someone who is a thrifty shopper but loves fabulous things, these are my picks for things that are worth spending your money on. Invest in a quality item, and it'll last you forever.
