If money were no issue and practicality didn't always win, I would purchase these Fluevogs:

I already have bought 10 tunics in the last 6 months and yesterday I splurged and bought 2 more. I didn't need them but ........
A high end bag, or jewelry.
Wow this has been fun! I love to see your ideas, both specific and philosophical.
We've got Suz's idea that a splurge is a small thing, not thought out or planned for and not necessarily all that expensive...a definition I hadn't considered. But yes, a new lipstick I don't need or a cute low budget top can feel like a nice treat.
We've got some doable splurges...let's call them indulgences...that don't break the bank. This may be what I've meant without realizing it. Something like this sweater below. Price is fine, it would just be an indulgence because the print is outside my norm...a wildcard. But hey, a not brown leopard like my HEWI scarf, so not ridiculously wild.
And we've got some true luxury splurges (from where I stand)...like Dashielle's $2000-plus coat. Or I imagine some of those designer bags...I'm not a bag person so I've never priced them. Or those diamond studs I'm reconsidering.
Wisdom prize goes to unfrumped. I knew it from the beginning. I'm working backwards. I need to see the thing I can't live without and from there decide to splurge. That way the money is available when I truly want it.
Meanwhile...the sweater treat?
I like the sweater. It looks like your style, but in a print that is outside the box for you. Yet it's such a classic print, in colors you wear, and I bet it would be a fun wildcard for you.
A beautiful pair of diamond stud earrings, to wear morning, noon, and night!
My splurges tend to be jackets/coats and footwear (particularly boots). Although my splurge recently was my vintage sunglasses I bought in Amsterdam and had fitted with custom prescription lenses (in my profile pic). I intend to baby them and wear them for years and years!
My recent splurge was the Missoni zigzag poncho. I don't need it, but I loved it when GoldenPig was styling hers, and impulsively ordered it. It looked so fab on her. I haven't received it yet so we'll see!
My recent splurges have been a topper and 2 pairs of shoes.
Another vote for a great handbag . . . so thrilled with this one that I picked up:
