I got these shoes a while back as a spontaneous purchase from Dress Lily. When I got the shoes they were not as magical as I had imagined, they felt pretty cheap to be honest. But, what can I expect from getting shoes for 20$! I wasn't disappointed though, because once I put them on they looked so much better! I mean its not like someone is going to come up to me and bend down to touch them, the appearance is the only thing that mattered to me. They are also surprisingly comfortable.

For trendy pieces like that I prefer not to spend a lot of money, because I'm not always sure if I will still feel the same about a piece 2 years down the road. For trendy pieces I rarely purchase them, but when I do, I prefer to make as little an impact upon my wallet as possible.

My investment pieces are usually things I spend months, even years searching for the perfect one and by the time I find it, I am either over joyed and still as excited about it when I first set out or the fire has fizzled and then I move on.

At times a trendy piece that I purchase I may fall in love with and then in becomes a classic piece for me. Only then I will I look into preserving the piece so it will last longer or find its investment counterpart.

How do you keep yourself in check with the ever changing trends?
