Splurge now, save later: Why staple pieces matter in your wardrobe

Splurge now, save later: Why staple pieces matter in your wardrobe

I love shopping. That’s right I am a 27-year-old woman who is addicted to shopping. That felt good getting that off my chest before giving out helpful saving tips. It also felt pretty dang cliche – what woman doesn’t like going to pick up another pair of heels that we “can’t live without”? Before heading to mall every weekend for the “not seen on Instagram” outfit, consider this tip first: spend more to save more.

Staple pieces will elevate an average garments. By staple, I do not mean you need one black belt, black jeans, gold hoops (although everyone needs these let’s be honest) and white top. You need THE black jeans, those black heels, and THAT black belt. I will be the first to admit I love going to shop at stores that I can afford i.e., Forever 21, Miss Guided, Pretty Little Thing – the list could go on but you get the point. The problem is quality. You’ll find yourself re-buying the same items over and over again.

My suggested staple pieces are listed below:

    • A nice belt: whatever the color go out and find a quality belt. I would suggest to grab for the black, but I know some prefer brown and that will do just fine. The belt doesn’t have to be high fashion like the one I have pictured (which is my mom’s by the way, she’s “not a regular mom she’s a cool mom”) it needs to be quality. The truth: yes this belt will cost you a little bit more than the $19.99 special on TV.

 

  • Versatile heels: Personally I hate heels. I only buy them for special occasions, and I only wear them for special occasions. The perfect heel needs to fit the three W’s- working, weddings, and weeping (funeral). Comfort should be a top priority as you will be wearing them to several venues. The shoe color should be neutral, or black, and never too busy. My favorite brand for heels and sandals is pictured below: Tory Burch

 

  • Sturdy sandals: I have sandals thrown all throughout my closet, sometimes it’s a miracle I can find them both. Sandals are my thing. I am 5’8”, so SANDALS it is! If you don’t splurge on a good pair of sandals your feet will blister, and your heels will be battered by the end of the day. My favorites are those that have a supportive back strap. I get that they may not be the most attractive shoe but my first goal is comfort.
  • Go-to blue jeans: You never need to have ten pairs of blue jeans in your closet, two or three will do just fine. Let’s understand something, we are all made up differently and just because the new trend is low rise does not mean you need it. Find the jean that is flattering for your body style, durable, and can quickly go from backyard barbecue to girls night out.
  • Classy jewelry: This will be more than likely the most expensive splurge you will partake in. Diamond earrings last forever, cubic zirconium does not. If you add up all the times you ran to Nordstrom for a pair of fresh fake diamond earrings you would probably have three pairs of real ones. Other great pieces to have: pearls, nice quality rings (I recommend David Yurman), quality watch (no I didn’t say Rolex calm down), and if you like necklaces be sure to keep it dainty and simple.
  • A purse for all seasons: Stay away from your favorite color, I know, I know it’s hard. Stick with a purse you can wear all the time. I like to have a good over-the-shoulder because of easy accessibility, but a small shoulder bag is fine also. My personal color of choice: black

Remember to always keep it simple when searching for your new staple pieces. Think of how much use you will get out it before you purchase it. Also note, I did not write this for you to go get all of these items tomorrow. Enjoy the process, take your time finding what you love, and happy shopping!

    Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re
    using? (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but
    the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any
    feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

  50. July 5, 2019 / 4:48 am

    I agree, Kristi. I rarely read blogs that don’t have comments. When I have time to read, I want to do so in a community where I can interact with the writer and other readers.
    This has been an evergreen question to me. Any system I tried hasn’t been perfect, most are frustrating. I like owning my comments but WordPress hasn’t managed to improve their comment system. I can’t figure it out! Commenting is what makes blogging so awesome: Why does WordPress keep tweaking the dashboard but they’ve never got around to improving the commenting functionality!?

  51. July 5, 2019 / 4:46 am

    With so many posts that end up with no comments and more bloggers every day ditching comments all together I think it’s going to be interesting to see how the way in which we handle comments evolves in the future. I’ve used CommentLuv Pro for years and it works very well.
    I still believe in blog comments. Even if they are a pain to manage, people who read an article and have a question are much more likely to do so on your comments in hopes of receiving a response. If they don’t have that option, they might seek an answer on another site instead.

  52. July 5, 2019 / 4:36 am

    Hopefully Kristi won’t mind me jumping in here to say that the free GrowMap antispambot plugin (GASP) works best for me. Without it, my blog was getting 1000+ spam comments a day. The day I installed it they dropped to 40 and most of those were real. 100% of them were manually created.
    Thanks, Ann. What I love most is when I comment on a site for the first time and see they’re using it. The plugin has spread far beyond our usual communities to major sites and blogs in niches I’ve never visited before.

  53. July 5, 2019 / 4:24 am

    These are so frustrating, I wished I could use the native system within WordPress, but it doesn’t seem to “do” enough. Disqus has become wonderfully bloated, and if you try their advertising model, you get a page full of junk. There must be more than 3 options. If you go native the spam will make you insane. I wished there were more options discussed here
    There are other comment platform systems – these are the ones that most people end up on after testing others though. Unfortunately, spam is going to get you no matter what you use. Even Moz, where they have their own platform, gets a rash of spammy comments per post.
