This week marked the beginning of a new month, which meant that I had another $125 to spend for the month of March, in keeping with my Great Shopping Plan of 2010. I didn’t really do much shopping this week, because work kept me extremely busy. But I did manage to get a few lovely things.
Gaps filled: um, legwear in fun colors?
Okay, these two really don’t relate to anything on my gaps list, but I love them none the less. Village Shoes sent me a $10 coupon for my birthday last month. I wasn’t ready to shell out for a pair of shoes yet, so I bought these awesome ruffled socks. I love the pale pink-purple color, and I think they’ll be a lot of fun to wear. I won the tights over at Fashionable Academics, and I think that I am now completely sold on We Love Colors. These tights are soft, thick and beautifully saturated. I adore the Scout Green color, and I can’t wait to incorporate them into an outfit.
Gap Curvy Jeans, $52 after discount
Gap filled: Dark wash jeans hemmed for flats
I began to realize this week that I really, really needed to get a pair of dark wash jeans that I could hem for flats. I always have trouble finding denim secondhand, so I decided to go to the mall. Gap just recently starting carrying premium denim, and they have a fantastic promotion going on right now. If you bring in a pair of old jeans, they will take them and recycle them into insulation, and give you 30% off a new pair of jeans. For each pair you bring in, you get another 30% off. I had an old pair that was not longer flattering on me, so I traded them in for these Gap Curvy jeans, which fit me fantastically. I still have to hem them, but I’m so glad that I finally have some jeans for day when I don’t feel like wearing 3″ heels.
So I spent $57 this week, leaving me with $68 for the rest of the month. I’ve still got some birthday money left too, so I don’t think it will be too bad.
