I have a couple of patterned obi belts from Etsy which were a very good deal (back when the AU dollar was good) and an old kimono sash I use as a belt (from my mum) - cheap!

Most: skin care products - usually Lancome, pants (if they fit right they're worth it!), over jackets/sweaters as I wear them so often, handbags, anything incredibly cute I spot and it actually fits

Least: basic v-neck coloured shirts that you wear to go with stuff, socks (thankfully I found some with the seam-free comfort toe), hair accessories

I spend the most of shoes and pants (hard to find ones that fit great!) I spend the least on jewelery (i hardly wear any), belts, socks, and just accessories in general with the exception of bags.

I spend the most on bags, jackets/coats and knitwear.

I spend the least on basic tees and underwear as I just can't bring myself to spend a fortune. Also on accessories as I get bored easily.

The least on skirts and some basics, but it depends

or not.

i think i spend the least on basic t-shirts and tanks...
i have so many...i probably spend a lot of money on them all together...
but i would rather have lots of options than a few really expensive t-shirts...
and i wear them so much for layering, around the house, etc...
they are always in the wash...but since i have so many, it's never an issue...

i am the same way with socks and tights...
lots and lots of relatively inexpensive options...

i think i probably spend the most money on boots, cashmere and special pieces from my favourite designers...
ie- yohji...

It really depends. A good percentage of my wardrobe is made up of ubercheap thrift store finds. And the rest is from places like H&M, Gap, and the Banana Republic, which really aren't expensive stores ! I probably spend the most on pants, because it is so difficult to find my size (length-wise). I also have a MAJOR weakness for jackets. So I splurge on those a lot. I never spend too much on tops or shirts though. Unless it is something completely unique. Funnily, I don't splurge on shoes. I buy 99% of my shoes at the thrift store because I hate the design I see of the shoes nowadays. Those nauseating dramatic tips- so disgusting! I prefer 1960's/1970's mod boots. Any sort of a boot with a heel. And one can hardly ever find those in retail- for men at least !

I definitely splurge on skincare. I only like the best. Most of the stuff I use is from Clinique, with some Clarins and Origins thrown in for good measure.

i try to keep the good solid things i love a splurge.

most: makeup because i always replace items..hair products/color (thats a big one every month)..some good clothing items i want in my closet and certain vintage items..and shoes(not all the shoes)..and purses since i tend to love big name brand ones..and i dont collect alot either after i fall in love with one or two..also lingerie (occasionally) but that can be less as well. and last perfume and im glad i usually stick to one brand! and if i can get a good piece of jewelry once and while.

least: loungy clothes..some everyday clothes..like jeans.. to me they are a joke if pricey..its way too loungy and doesnt deserve my hard earned money.. infact i dont care to wear them so why i bring them up. lol tshirts..those type of things. or some accessories. love bargains on high end items they sell at discount stores. yay

Most: quality leather items (boots, heels, sandals, bags, etc.), silk pieces, silk jersey knits, eyewear, nailcare and skincare...

Least: Basic tanks/tees, costume jewelry, denim (always get $$$ brands on sale) and trendy throw-away items

** However, the inexpensive items, however inexpensive they may be, can never look cheap... one of my favorite pieces of jewelry is a silver braided cuff (looks like something John Hardy would do) that cost me $10... gets endless compliments and ppl nearly choke when they find out how inexpensive it is...

ahh...
all three of you brought up good points...

i spend very little on 'loungy clothes'...
actually...
i have knit dresses that i bought for that very reason from old navy...
but i still wear my ratty old cashmere sweaters...
***they are just SOOOO SOOFT...
...:p...

i have definitely begun to splurge more on skin treatments though..
*i suppose that's a function of my age...but i also seem to be running out of things to buy...i have so much already......

frankly..i wish i could find some inexpensive lingerie that didn't suck......
that stuff is just crazy...
all the good stuff costs a small fortune...
...

so...it seems that while the fashion industry is suffering during this recession...
the beauty industry is booming...
...

wiw- i know exactly the style of bracelet you mean...
i LOVE john hardy...i wish more of his stuff looked good on me...
but that is a great piece...good find!...

^ Thanks softie!

Yes, lingerie is another important one. Good undergarments are investment, imo...

Since the recession, I feel that beauty and overall physical well-being have definitely become top priorities to many ppl. For instance, if one spends more on skincare and achieves or maintains a healthy, clear, glowing complexion, 'cheaper' clothing pieces or older pieces that one constantly wears can certainly take on a new life. Same with doing a bit of exercise or getting the odd pedi/mani here and there. If the body is well taken care of, one is going to feel + look good and in essence, clothing, whether old or inexpensive, will look great too simply b/c you feel good!
