A budgeting dilemma

So I'm heading off into post-Christmas sales and such in NYC tomorrow, and have budgeted for myself about $2.5k to spend. I'd really like to pick up a BB Golden Fleece suit, and perhaps a few smaller items. I also wanted to head over to Leffot to place an Edward Green MTO order.

This would definitely be possible in the given budget, but I also wanted to get a really nice present for my girlfriend... she really likes Louboutin shoes.

What to do?



(PS I'm not sure if this belongs in Social Life, Food and Drink or here)

Get the BB in a city that isn't as expensive as NYC.

Meh.

You're nothing like my man PoloRalph.

Who spent about 10k (or was it 30k?) on a load of stuff. Most of it Ralph Lauren. Ha!

Be honest with yourself and consider which will likely last longer: your relationship with your girlfriend or your relationship with your Edward Greens.
