As a kid, $20 was the ultimate attainable "big" amount you could save for a purchase. You could get a really good toy with $20, but it probably took some saving. As an adult, I find $100 is often the grown up version of the $20 you had to save for as a kid. Enough to really do something with, and, although you had to work for it, it is still attainable.
So, you have your benjamin in your wallet and aren't sure what to do. You are going to blow this money on yourself and get something NICE. But since a new Coach bag costs $300, where to start? Here are some luxury items you can get for $100 or a bit less. It won't be as big of a bang for your buck as buying used, but sometimes you want something current, shiny, and NEW. And you get the thrill of wasting your money on something ridiculously awesome. (My personal favorite is the Tiffany's Necklace).

#6 Longchamp's small Le Pliage bag $98
Longchamp's Le Pliages line continues to be wildly popular, and comes in a rainbow of colors. Their smallest bags are deep enough that you can still easily stuff all your necessities in there. And, if you have $125, you can get their medium sized tote, which is probably my favorite Longchamp item.

#10 Coach's Madison Small wallet $98
I have a version of this wallet, and I LOVE it. It's perfect. It's compact, adorable and SO very Coach. It snaps shut but doesn't have latches to fuss with, has an ID slot, several card slots, and a place to hold money. It even has a back zippered change pocket. It has everything a wallet needs and is smaller and more compact than almost any I've ever had. AND it fits well into all my little wristlets that I'm always taking in and out of my diaper bags.

While not all practical, hopefully there's something here to suit your taste. Or something to start saving for...
