Seven Ways To Spend All Your Christmas Loot On Melrose Avenue

You spent an entire month buying presents for everyone else + you exercised amazing restraint while shopping on Melrose + Santa delivered some cash = time to buy yourself some things.
It’s your turn, and we’ve got some suggestions for how to invest in something special with that holiday dough in your pocket.

GET A MONTHLY KICKS FIX

If you have like eight pairs of underwear but 100 pairs of sneakers, you probably should invest in a CoolKicks membership. For $15/month, you’ll get exclusive online-only access to inventory of new and pre-owned shoes priced under market value.

SPLURGE ON EXPENSIVE WINE

One of the most expensive bottles at DomaineLA is this 2015 Jacques-Frédéric Mugnier Nuits Saint Georges Premier Cru “Clos de la Maréchale.” Translation: a fruity French pinot noir that will give you bragging rights at the dinner table.
