October Budget

October Budget

I didn’t have very much of a plan for October, but I am happy with myself. As you can see, I got a lot of necessities (boots to get me through the winter, and a pair of black pants/black pencil skirt for work). And of course, a few great thrift finds! The above are representations of what my thrifted finds LOOK LIKE, but aren’t actually images of them. Hopefully I can share them all in some outfit posts soon!

1. Simply Vera by Vera Wang Dress (Similar) – Kohl’s $15.00 (Bought in store – couldn’t find exact online)

2.  Black Jumpsuit (Not actual picture) – Thrifted via Goodwill $6.99

3. Cynthia Black Booties – ShoeDazzle $45.95 (Purchased when all boots and booties were $10 off) = $35.95

4. Black Pencil Skirt (Not actual pictured) – Thrifted Anne Klein via Goodwill $4.99

5. Raine Cognac Boots (Wide Calf) – JustFab $39.95

6. Irina Black Zipper Boots (Wide Calf) – JustFab $39.95

7. Blank Pinstripe Pants (Not actual pictured) – Thrifted Ann Taylor via Goodwill $6.99

Total: $149.82

I didn’t set a budget this month, so I guess this isn’t too bad! I am VERY happy with the wide leg boots from JustFab and have been wearing them nonstop. I also love my new thrifted skirt and work pants and have been switching back and forth between the two all week.

How did you do this month?

    Great Finds! I think staying under $150 per month and getting so many nice things was commendable. I am scared to look at my budget now, LOL. my post will be up this week.

    I love your thrifted finds! The jumpsuit I know isn’t the same in the picture but I can’t wait to see! I just bought an LBD on thredUP that I heard of from Penniless Socialite and let’s just say I am one happy Ashleigh!
    I can’t believe you need wide-calf boots, but I am so happy to know just fab carries them in WC! Hooray!

    I was all over the place in October. I did get a pair of black pumps and black ankle boots that I needed but the rest of my purchases were completely random, including a tiger tee!
