We all love to splurge once in a while, don’t we? We asked some local stores what their ultimate “splurge” items are … the items customers covet, save up for or just impulsively buy on a whim. These are usually wants, but you can definitely make them “needs,” you know, if you have to. Check out our Luxe Loves for spring!
ACCESSORIES & JEWELRY
Have you seen the latest handbags from See by Chloe, which is Chloe’s younger line? These luxurious purses are actually quite affordable compared to their big sister counterparts. This drawstring bag is a beautiful cream color with gold accents. And while it’s a bag for all seasons, it would look especially fetching during the spring and summer months. Available locally at Peacock Boutique for $415
This classic, quilted Chanel handbag is made of the most supple, velvety-soft leather, but it’s the color that makes it so unique. The royal blue is the perfect finishing touch to any outfit … you could wear a potato sack, but carry this bag and you’d look like a million dollars. Sold locally at Rodes for $3,825
