When it comes to your wardrobe what items do you splurge the most on?
Do you agree that when it comes to wardrobe specifics your personal style would determine what you spend the most dough on? This does not mean that other life necessities aren’t worth splurging on, however for me, in order of preference its shoes, bags and blazers. While some women may prefer weaves, jewelry, bags, jeans etc.
When it comes to adorning my feet, I want them to look captivating and clean. I love statement shoes and I believe a beautiful shoe tells people you are to be taken seriously. I don’t think anyone wants the guy in scruffy looking shoes to be the lead in presentations. You know what I mean?

Lest I bore you about all the money I spend on all the fabulous things that are simply not my reality. Know also that my overall budget goes to less glamorous things like keeping a roof over my head, and groceries in my refrigerator, I have to be discerning about my investment purchases. And unless I’m widely misreading my audience (you guys aren’t all oil sheiks, right?), I’m guessing you’re in the same boat. Maybe for you it’s suits, or
