She saves every penny on her hit CBS comedy, 2 Broke Girls, but blondie Beth Behrs recently made a splurge.
“I bought Christian Louboutins, which is what I’ve always wanted,” she tells LearnVest.com. But don’t judge too quickly: growing up in a working class family, Behrs learned to be a saver — and has continued to stay smart with her money, even as she’s risen to fame.
“I think I learned that kind of practicality from my mom and dad,” Behrs continues of her ability to budget. “There was a time in high school when girls were all getting designer jeans — Citizens and Sevens and all those — and of course my little sister and I were like, ‘Why can’t we have these jeans?'” she recalls. “It was definitely discussed that we couldn’t afford that, or we would need to figure out a way to afford that.”
So when contemplating her Louboutin purchase, Behrs gave it some thought before whipping out the credit card. “I have to justify it … I’ve never had nice, designer shoes,” she says. “But I got a classic, black suede boot. I could wear them every winter from now until I’m 84 and they’ll still be in style.”
Plus, they came at the recommendation of her costar, Kat Dennings. As Behrs recalls, “Kat was like, ‘Every girl should have just one pair.'” Tell us: What was your biggest fashion splurge?
