It feels weird that today is still March, but regardless, I’m wrapping up my budget for this month! As you recall, I’m trying to stick to my resolution to buy only one item a month (with some fine print). The great part for this month was that I earned some income selling a few things online/at the consignment store AND I won $145 in a blog giveaway! (I couldn’t believe it when I found out…I was SO excited. Trust me.)
As a result, I used some of this money to cover some purchases and technically didn’t spend ANY money out of pocket, and still have $93 to carry over into April! WOO HOO!
Here’s what I did get for my March clothing budget:
-Gladiator open toe wedge- DSW– $20 (after DSW Rewards certificate)
-Black booties- DSW– $25
-Maroon print top- Banana Republic via Consignment Store- $11.99
-Pink gingham button up- J. Crew Factory (option, option)- $30
-Versital T/Inga Legging- Fabletics– $5.95 (after member credits); read my review of this outfit here
Side note: I’ve already worn the pink gingham a few times and LOVE it. It’s been on my list for a while and I’m glad I just walked out with that only. There were quite a few other JCF items I was lusting after, but I’ll have to wait it out for another 50% off sale.
As for items on my wish list moving forward, here’s where I’m at:
2. Gingham button up shirt
3. White lace tank or tee
4. Colored denim
5. Spring/summer dress for special occasions
6. Floral, patterned or fringe scarf
7. Spring coat (perhaps a trench?)
8. Black casual pants to replace my current pair
9. Wrap/open sweater to replace my current one
And since I feel like I am just purchasing completer or replacement items, I thought it’d be fun to try one of the new services out there that is like Netflix for apparel to add some fun pieces here and there on a “rental” basis. That said, I’ve decided to try Le Tote and StitchFix. My first Le Tote should be coming soon, and StitchFix doesn’t ship until May 13th. I’ll definitely compare the two in a Le Tote versus StitchFix battle and let you know which wins! Have you used either? Thoughts/preferences?
How did you do this month?
