What To Buy Today If Money Was No Object

Usually, our splurges go hand-in-hand with a deal or a sale. That way, we can at least feel justified when fanciful items make their way home with us. But, sometimes, those big ticket items are well worth the dough. Low and behold, it's National Splurge Day, so we're starting to dream big rather than go home. The key to minimal guilt is buying items that will go the distance — pieces that are exciting and off the cuff, but will still get a ton of wear no matter what trends dictate.

Ahead, we rounded up are favorite au courant pieces that fit that (very large) bill. And, if these don't happen to be in your budget right now, just remember that looking is always free.

Winter is coming (albeit in the far-off distance). Buy this coat and you won't have to think about it for the rest of the year.

The thought of these with, well, anything (a pair of jeans, a dress, a jumpsuit) is too good.
