Shopping Plan: Week 23

*Week 23 of My Great Shopping Plan of 2010, where I attempt to stay on a budget and fill out my wardrobe*

Cardigan: Isabella Rodriguez (Anthropologie)

Bought for $20 on eBay

After last week, I had $113 in my shopping budget.  Because money this summer is tight, I have been avoiding going out shopping for clothes.  But I haven’t stopped looking at eBay, and last week I found this glorious cardigan for a steal of a price!  I have been lusting after Anthropologie cardigans for a long time, but they are almost always out of my budget range.  Since my beloved white bolero cardigan is about ready to bite the dust, I was looking for a drapey, light-colored, 3/4 or short sleeve cardigan.  This one fit the bill, and it’s not polyester, so it’s awesome.

I did buy some stuff on Boden, but I’ll be posting it later on, since I haven’t received them in the mail yet.  So that I don’t lose track of my budget, I’ll go ahead and count it here.  I spent $52 with Boden, so that leaves me with $41 for the rest of July.

(By the way, ever wonder how I find such awesome stuff on eBay?  I wrote about about my eBay shopping strategies a few months back, so I thought it might be good to bring it up again.)
