The Urge to Splurge: How Will You Spend Your Tax Refund?
The filing deadline for 2011 tax returns is right around the corner on April 17, and we don’t know about you, but the Style.com team has already been plotting how we’re going to spend our refunds. Being the shrewd shoppers they are, executive editor Nicole Phelps and market director Marina Larroude have selected timeless Fall looks like the evening tuxedo from Peter Dundas at Emilio Pucci and Altuzarra‘s updated peacoat, both of which are totally (or at least arguably) reasonable when you break down their price-per-wear ratio. For several other staffers here, a government reimbursement is the perfect opportunity to splurge on items they wouldn’t typically consider. Fashion news editor Matthew Schneier has his eye on one of the “brooches for bros” from Kim Jones’ latest Louis Vuitton menswear lineup, and editorial coordinator Jessica Minkoff is coveting a decadent, embellished Balmain biker jacket—that one might set her back several year’s worth of returns, but hey, a girl can dream, particularly when it’s at the expense of Uncle Sam.
