Would You Treat Yourself?

Let's say there's an outfit you love and it costs $130 from a catalog, so you haven't tried it on. Technically, you have the $130 to spend, but it could be spent in a lot of other, more useful ways. You are knocking hard on age 40 and the outfit in question is decidedly "steampunk" in design. Would you buy the outfit?

  • I would buy it. Sometimes you gotta splurge on yourself!

  • if it was money *I* had I'd get the outfit. If it was just an extra 130$ in the family budget, I dunno...

  • Me personally, yes I would...I buy clothes about once a year if that because I never see anything I like. I say go for it. :)

  • I don't know.. I don't like catalogs much.. however you can check out fifteendollars.com and you may find the same thing for $15.. and then you get the best of both worlds. Shop around for a bit, you may find what you like, but cheaper.. or type in the name of the dress and see if they have them cheaper elsewhere.. anyways, that's what I do, and I normally save BIG TIME that way and still end up with the outfit I want :)

  • Nope. $130 for me, for any outfit, is seriously WAYYYYY too much, especially for one that I hadn't had the chance to see in person and try on.
