Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    In that first video you really don’t get the feel for the attention to detail until you see the seamstress counting the individual rows in the fabric to make sure the placement of the seam is correct. If even a fraction of that level of detail was applied to clothing now, it wouldn’t fall apart the way much of it does. Brands would also take better care when choosing fabrics to work with. Who on earth would count rows on a flimsy polyester that will fall apart after two washes? No one.

      Agreed. Then if you look at HAUTE couture.. it’s even more incredible.

    I love watching these videos. Have you seen The Secret Life of Haute Couture? (I think that is what it is called). I really enjoyed watching it that. It goes for about an hour. I think you might be able to find it on youtube.
