I can tell you right now I had quite the successful month! I set my budget at $200 (which is a little higher than I want to go the rest of the year, but it is also birthday month, so it was okay in my mind). I ended up spending LESS than my budget! (Patting myself on the back because I NEVER do that!) For $139.03 I got two new scarves, two new blouses, a dress, a faux fur embellished vest, a pair of glitter strapped heels and a new workout outfit! Also, after laying out all of my purchases together I don’t think I was over Christmas and New Years (hence all the green & red and glitter shoes).
Red Blouse, Apple Branches Vintage (Etsy Store) $5.00 + $4.50 S&H = $9.50
Sheer Purple Dot Blouse, Apple Branches Vintage (Etsy Store) $5.00 + $4.50 S&H = $9.50
Plaid & Infinity Scarf, Abercrombie & Fitch $26.80 – $6.80 + $5.00 S&H (using RetailMeNot code 15244 for 25% and $5 S&H) = $25.10 Plaid Scarf Available here (Infinity Scarf Sold Out)
Glitter Heels, DSW final clearance $9.99 Available here (I am a little confused because I bought this exact pair in stores for $9.99 but online they are still $29.94– I would check in stores if you are interested in this pair of heels!)
Not Pictured: pv.body new workout gear (top and cropped bottoms) I started a monthly subscription (similar to JustFab, ShoeDazzle, JewelMint, etc. only for workout clothing) as a way to get myself motivated to keep working out. Plus my workout clothing needs a major update! Your first month you can get a 25% discount, so this month’s was: $37.46
UPDATE! So I couldn’t resist getting a new dress for my 25th birthday, but wrote and had this post scheduled a few days before (so I could enjoy my birthday weekend without worrying about getting blog stuffs done). Anyway, I found a long sequin dress at Forever21 for $18! It was a steal… so updated budget at $157.03. Still under budget, which makes me happy!
How did you do on your budget this month (if you have one) or what new fun pieces did you get this month?!
