If you've ever suffered from buyer's remorse after purchasing a ridiculously expensive, yet oh-so-adorable pair of shoes or another LBD, let us just say—we completely understand. But, today is National Splurge Day, and that means everything you buy is completely justified and basically necessary. Take that, credit card bills! In honor of what is one of our favorite holidays of the year, the OK! Editors have shared the splurges that hurt their wallets but made their hearts happy, which is what really matters, right?
"Every once in a while, I randomly decide I need to buy myself something super expensive. I can honestly remember every single time I've gone retail crazy. Last week I stopped in Kenneth Cole, turned into Carrie Bradshaw, and bought myself a pair of shoes—I'm not sure I want to admit how much I paid for. They're so gorge, so I totally don't regret it. The perfect addition to my closet."

"I'm splurging on an upcoming trip to the California coast with my bestie — it's totally breaking my bank account but it's totally worth it."
—Emily, Social Media Manager
"I bought this beautiful, vintage, beaded top with scalloped edges and sequin trim for NYE one year. I basically had just graduated college and already owed my life in student loans, but I didn't care—this gem (that cost $350) was worth it. Not only do I still have it, but I still love wearing it!"

"I bought Justin Timberlake and Jay Z tickets this summer. It is a ridiculous price for a concert ticket but then you think, 'well it is JT and Jay Z and at Yankee Stadium, sooo once in a lifetime?' I haven't been to the show yet but I already know it's worth it. "

"I spent $350 on a haircut one time. But it's ok…it was for my birthday!"

"I had been wanting a Chanel bag since high school and I finally got up the courage (and sort of the funds) to buy it about a year ago when my friend was working a Chanel sample sale. I purchased the little black one with the C's. Now I only really use the bag when I go have a fancy occasion, but considering I have 5 weddings coming up this summer, I know I'm getting my money's worth."
—Haley, Entertainment Editor
"My biggest splurge ever was my wedding dress. I've always loved, loved, loved Monique Lhuillier's designs so when I got married I knew I had to wear one of her wedding dresses. I worked my tail off to pay for it but six years later I still think it was worth it!"
