In our office, we spend a lot of time discussing how we’d love to spend our money if we won a million-dollar jackpot. It’s pretty unlikely, but someone’s gotta win it, right? But what about the opposite end of the spectrum? It's harder to shop smart on a budget—but way more realistic.
To prove you can look a million bucks on a shoestring, our editors have dished on how they’d spend their last $100. Keep scrolling to see what made the list!
“I'd stay true to my current style and shopping wish list with my last $100. May as well go down in a blaze of fashion glory! The brand of the moment is Gucci, and I've been hunting around for a vintage buckle belt. So that's what I'd buy, and then wear it with a white T-shirt and high-waisted jeans. Simple and timeless.”
“This is without a doubt, my favourite T-shirt in the world. I don’t know what I’d do if Bassike stopped making it, so I’d spend my last $100 on adding to my collection. I’m stocking up like I’m preparing for the Rapture.”
“I used to think Tom Ford’s Lip Coloor was only popular because of its mega-chic packaging, but now I know better—the formula really is one of the best out there. I’d happily spend my last hundo on my favourite nude shade, Spanish Pink.”
“Super fine, delicate, gold, handmade in Sydney. What’s not to love? More than worth spending my last $100 on.”
“It’s starting to get pretty cold in the mornings, so I’d spend my last $100 on a ribbed knit midi dress. I HATE being cold.”
“Because I’m annoyingly practical, I would buy a classic LBD—that I can dress up or down—with my last $100. I can wear it to work with a loafer, on the weekend with Converse, and out for dinner with a heel.”
