january 2014 fashion budget

So I was expecting January’s budget to be higher, since it’s my birthday month. I tried to stay around $100 still…let’s see how I did:

How did you do this month?

    1. Thanks Valerie! The dotted shirt I found is actually a men’s shirt – and I found it in the women’s section – but it fits me pretty well. I’ve definitely bought things at full price or on sale, only to find a very similar item at the thrift store for much much less.

  1. You actually did REALLY well this month – and the fact that it was your birthday month makes it even more impressive! And you pretty much killed it at the thriftstore – that I’m surprised 🙂

    1. Thanks Ashley! February’s already shaping up to be a disaster, LOL! I blame it on my love and addiction to thrifting (I guess I am lucky, I usually find so many great things there). But I did run into a North Face waterproof shell at a consignment store over the weekend, and I couldn’t leave without it 🙂 xo

    1. Thanks Miche! It’s actually kind of fun to do the monthly budget thing – even if I tend to go over budget. It helps me keep track of what I’m buying and what I have already. Seriously, I buy stuff and forget I have it. You should join 🙂
