Much like my suspiciously republican neighbour here >>143947
(I can tell by the way you write the euro sign), most of my possessions are of the cheap and polyester variety. As of next month it'll probably be my Gloverall duffle since I'm tired of getting frostbit every winter in a thin dress coat. I'll have to get it used though since I can't afford a new one.
For electronics it's my Sony mirrorless with all the lenses. That's about £900 easy.

I have a Louis Vuitton bag that I received as a Christmas present from my mother. See attached, retails for about $1400. My mother is crazy about designer items so she always gifts me with Coach and Tiffany's stuff, this is the most expensive item to date. I never even take it anywhere because I'm too scared someone is going to try and mug me for it. So I'd say it's not worth the money because I don't use it. The quality is good though and would probably last me a long time if I did use it.

$350 little twin stars bed set. (plain pink bed sets are usually $200 so whatever) Worth it if your room is themed all pink, kawaii, or weeby otherwise nah.

I had an embarrassing obsession with Ariana Grande and bought her Coach bag. I actually got it for for a really good deal ( around $230) considering that it is limited edition and sold out.

The most expensive non electronic thing I own is my twin stars varsity jacket, pre ordered it for $175. I personally think it's worth it, its good quality, warm, and makes me look kawaii as fuck.>>143950

A ball-jointed doll. I have a few, but one has probably totaled between $500-600 after buying it eyes, wig, clothes, etc.
Is it worth it? Yes and no. I really do love this doll and the others I have, but I would never spend so much on something so frivolous these days. I've found that I'm much happier investing money in myself.

The most expensive non electronic thing I won is this vintage inspired dress from heart of haute. It was 190€. But I love it to death and the quality is great!
i love middle aged mums who think that coach, tiffanys and LV is the epitome of lux
just wear it tbh, most people will assume it's fake anyway.

I have a few MK things because I am as basic bitch and like the watches but I think oddly the most expensive thing I have is a first print edition copy of Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass double print. It was printed in 1875 and it's stupidly valuable. It was my graduation present from my father because Alice is the first book he read to me as a child.
I didn't buy it incidentally but it feels worth it to me. I cherish it a lot as a sentimental item not as a collector thing.
Who's gonna mug anyone for coach?
They've never made an item that isn't uglier than sin.
Forreal though anon, enjoy your bag. It's nice, it will last ages as long as it's not abused, it isn't so ostentatious you couldn't wear it with a number of outfits, but unless you live in a horrible area you should be just fine.
File: 1476787127904.jpg (36.55 KB, 400x600, marjo-dirndl-marissa-creme-pin…)
When I was in Austria a couple of years ago we went in a traditional shop and I tried dirndls on just for funsies. They were all unique and beautiful, so nicely crafted. I tried on the girliest one I could find and the outfit came to about €350. I was so excited that I bought it and lived off beans when I went home.
It was not a very sensible purchase. I've worn it twice and tbh 2 years down the line it's a little hard to breathe in. I love it though.

This is similar to the bag I have. I forgot the name of it but it's Skinner and taller looking if that makes sense. Cost me around $500 dollars. Most expensive bag I own that's not a replica. Most expensive jewelry I own is a set of rings, each 300 (one sapphire, one ruby one). Most expensive item overall is my computer setup, around 3K ish.>>143966
Depends where you live. In my country people will mug you for anything really even something like coach is seen as super luxury since everything is more expensive here (for example, a Mercedes that cost 30k in the united states cots 60k here).>>143962
LV is pretty lux, although I do find those big label printed bags tacky. They do have some amazing things like the the lockme 2 bag and many others. Coach has gone downhill for years due to shitty marketing but I think they are working on that for now.

I think in terms of health I think they are a little more delicate. More susceptible to cuts and he's had half his tail amputated after slicing it on something a workman left in our garden. Apart from that he has what I think are dust allergies. Though as a breed I hear they are pretty healthy as long as they are from legit breeders, They are prone to a genetic heart condition which good breeders will scan for. but you can never know these things.
Care isn't as hard as people make it out to be. Bathing really depends on how dirty the cat gets. They're all different. And how much you care about greasy marks on your soft furnishings. I don't tend to wash him any more than every couple of weeks and its a 5 minute job. Cutting nails can be a pain if they develop a hatred for it like mine has. But we manage :) they are so worth it. I've had many ordinary cats who have been lovely but they never came close in terms of personality and affection.

Ruling out car/collections/things I've made, the most expensive I've ever bought is my dog I guess
Oh my goood, he's a total babe!
What breed is he?
This is so cute!>>143946
Most expensive thing I bought is an LV bag 6 years ago. Most of the other expensive stuff have been gifts from my mom, stepdad, bfs, and friends. A lot of my expensive stuff are electronics though, and I've become especially stingy with age so yea. I did buy a vintage silk duvet cover that I love for only $30-$50, and that would usually retail for hundreds of dollars. I really love it and use it on a goose down comforter I also got for a really good deal. I never thought of it before, but I'm very lucky since most of my nice stuff was gifted to me.

Chanel jumbo flap bag in black caviar leather with gold hardware. It's ~$5,500 + tax in stores iirc so I bought a preowned one. It has a crease on the lower part and the sides are very slightly pushed out because of overstuffing by the previous owner, but that can be fixed with some clips on the interior. It cost me just under $3,600 so saving thousands on a good condition is fine with me.
It's worth it to me, I wanted a timeless and versatile bag that I could wear with everything, formal or casual. Super satisfied with it.

An Ibanez Maple Finish Electric Guitar. Cost me $650 on sale. I bought it when I was sixteen, took me seven months working as a gas pump attendant and scrubbing toilets to pay for it, and lord is she worth it. My BF bought me an engraved pick case with my initials on it for her on my birthday this year. No regrets.
>Very similar finish to pic
oh my god are those tiny cats around the bottom? So cute!
most expensive thing i own though is a 250 dollar pair of work boots because i am a poorfag.

My boots like 200$ but they were on sale for 50$.

My taste is pleb-tier, but probably these shoes. I bought them 5 or 6 years ago when they were a big thing… and they're real Vivienne Westwood x Melissa ones and not Taobao knockoffs. It was a pain in the ass to find my size and I ended up having to go a half-size bigger because they were only in whole-sizes (or, at least the ones I managed to find that were in-stock), but I still think they were worth it.
I got them when I was 17 and paid for, like, 60%+shipping and my parents paid the other part and we called it my birthday gift for the year. I think they ended up being around $200 or so? Maybe a little over. I wanted to pay for it all myself but for some reason my parents weren't into that.>>143992
I spent a solid 2 weeks searching for them when I bought them. I honestly wish I could wear them more, but I pursued a science degree (and now work in a lab) so open-toed shoes are frowned upon. I love them so much though… and their weird fake bubblegum smell.
That's very sweet, anon.>>143968
Docs are a good investment. I paid $130 for my first pair at 14 years old and have worn them almost everyday, I'm 20 and they're still wearable. >>143982
That pick case sounds so sweet, your bf is a keeper.>>143987
I'd still kill for these. I can't find them anywhere online, let alone in the size or color I want.

Parents bought me this Burberry scarf as a christmas present, I think it was $250-$300 on sale. I wanted it for years, but eventually gave up and bought a cheap (but really nice and warm) scarf in Shibuya for $20. My parents gifted me this scarf about a year later lol.
I love it but I rarely wear it out because I'm scarf of dirtying it.

this $500 Dooney & Bourke bag. i got it for my 21st birthday i think.
i love it, but it does not mesh with the place i now live; bumfuck rural nowhere, so i don't get to bring it out very often.

Otherwise it'd be my laptop.

My proplica of the Cutie Moon Rod from sailor moon. Totally the biggest impulse buys I've ever made, I saved over the summer and found it for $60. Shipping and customs kicked my ass and it came to around $120, getting the thing out of a post office was stress enough. Ngl though, when I put the battery's in and it lit up and made a sound, I felt like I was 11 years old again.
What do they look like?

Oh, that's easy. Diploma.
My wedding ring
Other than those and electronics I am a cheap ass bitch rip no fancy bags or shoes. I guess furniture, king sized bed? I also have a pure bread cat but she was only a few hundred.
I rly want a Chanel le boy one day but yeah I am pretty cheap so idk if I could ever justify that purchase lol

Honestly my school tuition from kindergarten to college…brb gonna cry calculating them all
Anyway, hard mode:
$200 Coach small hand bag from 2015. It's fucking sturdy, doesn't look like old moms bag, and I feel fancy af like those instagram blogger. Can't find the same picture but this kate spade bag is kind of close. Mine is in muted lavender and off-white on the sides.
My dad bought me Nikon D7100 for my 17th birthday….for $1600. Ouch.
Both are worth it.

If animals are ok, definitely my horse. Bought him for 14 000€ and it costs 600-800€ every month to keep him, I've had him for about 8 years so he has been draining my bank account a lot. Worth the money.
After that, electronics excluded, probably my Tommy Hilfiger watch. It was around 200€.
I don't usually buy brand but I got really tired of my 5€ watches breaking down all the time. It was worth it. Ironically I bought it for riding too, don't wanna drop the phone.
My gaming computer doesn't count, so…
Does a sewing machine still count? I have my mom's (she never used it) that probably cost around $400. Second most expensive may be my electric bass for $200. But that's still electronic I suppose.
Otherwise I don't have anything too expensive. I have a photography frame + backdrop I got for $60.
My mother used to own three horses.
My father once described them as something where you stuffed money in one end and poop came out the other. It seems oddly apt.
File: 1488188149630.jpg (46.78 KB, 232x313, APtartanjsk.jpg)
bought it for £60 two years ago, worn it twice. I was severely depressed, working a shitty part time job, impulse buy for my birthday. putting it up for sale in a few days.
I also own a pair of pink genuine AP tea parties that I bought for around the same price, and a pair of doc martens that cost me £60 in a sale that I've worn to death, no regrats.
even my pc only cost me £700 from start to finish, I'm incredibly frugal and am going through a massive "get rid of everything I don't need/use" stage at the moment, perks of growing up I guess.

Mine would be this. It's actually not the most expensive thing I own (my mother collects Hermes and Chanel and has given me some), but so far it's the most expensive thing I've got since I've gotten a "real" job out of college. Aka making a name for myself and not just making connections, experience, and lousy pay.
Cosmetic surgeon, btw.
(Also, my parents didn't spoil me when I was younger. They are actually immigrants from a communist country. I grew up pretty average, but as I got older my parents made more money obviously).

My car. Gently used Honda Fit, for like $10k, and it's served me well for the past 5 years. It's fast and gets me to work and if there's a "compact cars only" space in a parking garage I can park there.
Non-car, non-electronic things is probably my Hidalgo snake ring I bought from work. Even with my employee discount I had to save up for it for a few months. Pic related. The first piece of higher end jewellery I've bought for myself. It's beautiful and the stock size fit me perfectly.

The most expensive thing I own is probably a pair of Saucony sneakers that my boyfriend bought for me, about $50. The most expensive thing I own I've paid for myself is pic related, which ranges $23-30. It felt gross to spend so much on one fucking face wash but it makes my skin sooooooooo soft ;-;

Well, it was/is/will be worth it. It enabled a career shift that has changed my entire life.
I'm kinda sick of Ramen noodles though.
My MH/EAH/Bratz dolls collection. They're all really expensive in South America, so i buy one per 2-3 months.
It' more of a novelty item than anything, so i don't think it's worth it for anybody who isn't crazy for dolls.
I'm jealous tbh!!! I'm 100% a MyScene dolls girl so that would be my dream to own a collection!
Mine is probably my kanken, or my hair extensions, they were like 200 euro and they're not even that great. I was a stupid person a few years ago.

Oh anon, I own that Proplica too! Worth every penny, well-made and it made me so proud when I unpacked it, because I was a poorfag child who never got the official merch, so being able to afford it now means a lot to me.
But my Serenity Pullip was a tad more expensive, around ~160 bucks I think. Love her though, she's so pretty and posing her is fun. She's just gorgeous to look at. Want to get Chibiusa as well.
I have both items on display, and people constantly tell me "but why, it's just plastic!" and I never even tell them how much I paid for these, lol. They'd be offended. But well, so what if it's "just overpriced plastic", I work hard for my money and it's my one weakness, and it makes me happier than spending my disposable income on takeout coffee or designer clothes. To each their own.

My computers (imac and macbook), but I need those for my job, and my car. They're all paid off, and next time I need a car I'm paying in cash since the interest on the loan was not something I want to repeat. I could afford it, but it was a complete waste of money.
For clothes: I once bought a pair of Camilla Skovgaard boots, that were $270 in the sales. Since the internet told me they run small I sized up one whole sixe, which was a huge mistake. They were way too big, even after putting silicon insoles and what not in them. I never wore them anywhere since I'd have broken my ankles, and a year later I sold them on ebay for $160. Never doing that again. Now I only buy shoes online from brands that have consistent sizing and I already own pairs off.>>186509>it makes me happier than spending my disposable income on takeout coffee or designer clothes.
There's no shame in that, anon. I try to avoid Starbucks as much as possible, since the price of 10 to 12 trips to starbucks gets me some nice burando at Closetchild. Make your own coffee and save up for what you like.>>185057
Agree. How something feels and fits is more important than the brand. I look for good quality stuff in second hand stores for clothes, coats, blazers, suits and skirts. Shoes I want new, so I usually wait for the sales.
