Hey, you can’t deprive yourself forever. Thanks to these accessible luxury items, you can get a taste of the luxe life without going overboard. Put simply: “Treat yo’ self.”
Here are a few special little somethings from accessible luxury brands that’ll put a smile on your face — without draining your bank account.
Here’s a way to add a little luxury to something you use every day. Plenty of designers offer cute — and shockingly affordable — key rings. And hey, no one needs to know that the key dangling off that designer ring is for a 20-year-old hand-me-down jalopy.
Yearning for designer clothing? Set your sights a little lower — on your feet. Many designers offer flip-flops that’ll keep your toes stylish without cleaning out your wallet.
