We've all had that item, the one we've kept in our online carts for months or made eyes at as we walked by it sitting in the window. While it can feel intimidating to finally pull the trigger on a major purchase, sometimes treating yourself to something you've been coveting is absolutely the right decision.
So what won't leave you feeling like you made a major mistake post-purchase? We asked our editors to share the splurges they sprung for and have yet to regret. Their answers range from closet staples to of-the-moment stunners, but they've all stood the test of time!

"I've never regretted splurging on my back leather jacket from Theory. It's versatile, timeless, and I'll own it forever!" — Nicole Kliest
"I bought these Dior boots on a bit of whim, with a little encouragement from a couple of my colleagues. They're definitely my biggest shoe purchase to date, but I haven't regretted them yet. A lot of people subscribe to the idea that if you're going to spend a lot of money on an item, it should be a great basic. I definitely agree with that, but on the other hand, you're not going to get something this special from a fast-fashion brand!" — Kat Collings
"Although these were a rosé-iduced purchase, I've yet to regret adding these criss-cross leather heels to my shoe collection. I wear them at least twice a week, so in my mind, it's a very justifiable purchase." — Michelle Scanga
"Deciding to buy a Mansur Gavriel bag wasn't the hard part. It was actually getting my hands on one that proved tough. After constantly refreshing the site during a restock, I finally nabbed my bag, and I'm still happy about it every day." — Aemilia Madden
"When the Dior So Real sunglasses first became a thing, I instantly fell in love. At first I was hesitant to make the purchase because they are kind of crazy, but I wear them all the time and still love them just as much as I did the day I bought them." — Lauren Eggertsen
"I saw my dream 3.1 Phillip Lim jacket in the front of the boutique a few years ago. It spoke to me like no other garment and comprised all of my favorite things—a bomber style, leather accents, and a little glitter (I like to shine). It was 100% out of my price range, but I didn't really care. I just closed my eyes, threw my credit card at the sales associate, and left with a big style on my face." — Bobby Schuessler
"Sure, every brand makes black ankle boots, many of them more affordable than Acne Studios', but I was convinced that these were the best ones. And I was right. They're flattering, comfortable, classic, and so cool. The only reason I don't wear them all the time is because I don't want them to wear out!" — Allyson Payer
