My biggest purchase has been a nice pair of jeans. For the last many years I tended to buy cheap clothing. But I'd have to buy several things to find something that looked good and fit correctly. As soon as the Size 8 "fancy jeans" fit me, I got them. When I told my Husband how much the cost he was SHOCKED! He said "You know it costs $5 to make those?!" At the same time I went to the Gap and bought two pairs of jeans I kind of liked. Together they cost as much as the "fancy jeans" so I returned them and got the ones I really wanted. No more Mom Jeans for me!
I ended up with AG (Adriano Goldschmied) Stevie jeans. The material is so nice, not like any jeans I've ever worn. They are a little stretchy, but not too much and don't lose their shape throughout the day. They come in different "ages", so you can buy the same jeans that look new, 4 years old, 7 years old, even 28 years old. Kind of cool! I see these jeans as an investment and I really love them! I spent too much on them, but look at it as an investment in me.
