There’s nothing quite like a designer buy—the beautiful packaging, the thrill of unwrapping it, the fun of taking it out on its first outing however it can also be quite the financial outlay. Whilst I am a fan of saving up for a quality designer purchase which I’ve covered on the blog in the past, it’s also possible to nab yourself a little Gucci or Valentino of your every own without dropping a four figure sum on it. In fact, there are some great buys out there that are not only a great, practical addition to your wardrobe but also of the high quality that you’d expect from snapping up something from one of the world’s best luxury brands. So if you’ve got your heart set on a splurge item I’ve done an edit of the best luxe purchases worth considering. Whether it’s a beautiful card holder or a gorgeous scarf, my edit of designer buys under $500 will help satisfy your need for a little elevated retail therapy.
