A Purchase You Planned: My Acne Studios Musubi bag (reviewed here). I had been eyeing it for over a year and had been stalking it on the RealReal for almost as long. I missed a couple of them since I didn’t like the price point they were selling for (even used!). But eventually snagged one for almost $400 less by waiting for it to go on sale at the RealReal.
An Impulse Buy: The esby Duffy jumper. I saw it on Instagram and basically immediately searched eBay for a used one, found it, made an offer to purchase it, and I got it!
Your Favorite Purchase: This is a tough one but probably my favorite purchase in the last year is my Celine Soft Cube bag from Fashionphile (reviewed here). It’s functional yet chic and has held up like a champ. My favorite item of clothing is probably my Elizabeth Suzann Mara jumpsuit purchased from eBay (reviewed here). It lasted me through the bulk of my pregnancy and now postpartum too.
A Purchase You Regret: Probably that esby Duffy jumper since it really doesn’t fit me and now I have to resell it.
A Purchase You Regret Not Making: So far none. Most of the time if I don’t buy something, I usually forget about it.
P.S. I know the Nordstrom Anniversary and Amazon Prime Day are happening and a lot of bloggers will be talking about it because it’s a great time to make some commission (if you buy, they make money—this sentiment is also expressed by this blogger here). But it might be a good idea to do this exercise for yourself and really think through the purchases you regret and the purchase you regret not making. Unless there’s something you’ve been eyeing for awhile that’s on sale now, don’t spend your hard earned money on something on a whim that might not serve you well.
