Just as football players tearfully announce their trip to Disney World after winning a Super Bowl, I will happily announce my impending Saks Fifth Avenue trip to anyone willing to listen after I receive my first big check from my first grown-up job. Of course this will come after securing a place to live, a car, and paying off student loans. There are some specific items—like a Cartier Love bracelet or a pair of Jimmy Choos—that will cement my ascendance into the realm of adulthood and send a resounding “I made it” to the world. I plan to splurge on statement items or classic pieces that can be worn for years. What items will signal the solidification of your success? What style item will you buy once you receive your first big check?
