I don't like making mistakes period, but I especially don't like admitting to making them. What that means on the sartorial front is that I've gone to pretty extreme lengths to avoid facing up to certain fashion fails over the course of my 30 years on this planet. Have I endured walking around in gorgeous but slightly too-small boots for days on end rather than admit defeat? Maybe, in the name of cost per wear. Have I on occasion carried a micro-bag so incredibly micro that I carried a tote bag around on my other shoulder to house essentials like my phone and wallet? Shh… That thing was expensive.
Which is what brings me to the subject of today's post, as investment buys aren't the only category in which it's possible to make a misstep. How many times have you mindlessly spent $15 or $20 on an impulsive purchase you soon forgot about after wearing once (or worse, never wore at all)? That's all about to change, friends. If you're looking for an affordable but thoughtful fashion fix (or not-so-spendy gift idea for a friend or loved one), keep on reading. I've rounded up 23 solid picks you'll purchase and actually get a whole lot of use out of. Look at us being all responsible!
