Normalizing Luxury: August Splurges

louis vuitton coussin pm

I believe we can have healthy conversations about building wealth and normalizing luxury in the same space. For that reason, I decided to add a fun spotlight on last month’s splurges that were totally not necessary, but made my little heart happy. If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ve seen a few of these purchases make their debut within my feed! But here is a quick review of each … more to come with styling and outfit ideas.

1. Louis Vuitton Coussin PM – Camel

This bag has been on my mind for months. She is such a beauty and hard to find, but I got lucky one day while on my way into work. I was convinced it was a sign that I needed to buy … so I did! I’ve carried her only a handful of times so far, but I love using the chain when I’m dressing up and the strap when I’m going a bit more casual. I can’t link directly to Louis Vuitton, and the bag is sold out online but I did see one available at Fashionphile! 

2. Chanel CC Earrings

While on a business trip in New Orleans, I stopped by the Chanel boutique in Saks to look at Chanel 19 bags. There was one that I had my eye on and almost bought, but ultimately decided to settle for earrings. These had just arrived and were so cute on. I love the detail and the size. Would you believe these were under $500 in the boutique? It is hard to find Chanel second hand right now at a good price, but I did link a similar style to the ones I got and they are around $600.

3. Louis Vuitton Nanogram Hoops

One of my favorite influencers to follow (Emily Ann Gemma) always wears these hoops and I was influenced to buy them! I love the size and the subtle branding. So very chic. I’ve worn them several times and always get compliments on them. I think fashion jewelry is a great way to start incorporating luxury into your wardrobe if you are on a budget. I have been really in to earring lately!

What is on your luxury wishlist? I still want a new Chanel bag eventually, but haven’t pulled the trigger just yet. I will get my full wishlist up on the blog soon! Maybe some of mine will also be some of yours too! Thank you so much for reading! You can shop the post below.
