Tell Us: What Do You Splurge or Scrimp on?

09/11/2007 at 06:00 PM ET


For most of us, leaving Barneys with armfuls of clothes like Hilary Duff is a fantasy — not a reality. As we start putting together our fall wardrobes, we are definitely budgeting more for some things — designer denim and boots! — and less for others — pencil skirts and belts! We want to know how you spend your shopping money. Tell us: What fashion items are you willing to splurge on? What do you always save your pennies on?

Want your answer to appear in print? To have your comment considered for the next issue of PEOPLE’s StyleWatch, please INCLUDE your first name and last initial, your age and your hometown/state.

I splurge on designer jeans from Search By Inseam ( because I can quickly find all my favorite brands in MY inseam length. Being 6′ tall, this is not an easy task. I also spend money on quality shoes that are good for my feet. Other than that, I try and get everything else on sale.
