My Best Purchase

I splurged on a very expensive Moncler coat. I had read a review of it in a magazine that went through the way the coats were made and why they were worth the high cost. I bought it in a dark purple color and loved it for about five years with many compliments. The best part: I re-sold it on The RealReal for almost as much as I paid, and in turn bought an updated style in black that I still have today!

My Worst Purchase

A Hamptons share right after I bought my apartment at age 23. I had equity in my new home and took out a home equity line of credit to pay for the Hamptons share — and all the nights out and expensive meals/cocktails/cute outfits that came with it. I didn’t want to ask my parents for help because I wanted to be independent, so I was independently in debt!
