*December edition of My Great Shopping Plan of 2010, where I attempt to stay on a budget and fill out my wardrobe*
At the end of November, I had $63.50 to add on to my $125 for December. Here’s what I bought:
Green Cashmere J Crew Sweater, $20 on eBay
Awesome deal? Oh heck yeah. The sweater’s slightly shorter than what I prefer, but for $20, I’m willing to layer.
Printed Boden Dress, $60 (with shipping)
Striped Boden Cardigan, $38 (with shipping)
When Boden had it’s awesome 50% off winter sale, I finally caved and bought some stuff directly from them. I’d been drooling over that cardigan since I first saw it in the catalog months ago, and I absolutely love the print on the dress. I’m planning on getting the dress tailored, since it’s a bit loose in the chest and waist.
Bateau Turquoise Cardigan, Nordstom Rack
White August Silk Cardigan, Nordstrom Rack
Not Pictured: Grey Tank Top, Hue Knee Socks, Nordstrom Rack
$35.86 total for Nordstrom Rack purchases
This purchase was due to the awesomeness of Groupon. They had a deal going on where you could purchase a Groupon that would allow you to get $50 worth of clothes from Nordstrom Rack for only $25. I ended up going over the $50 mark, which was why my total came out to $35.86. Still a pretty insane deal.
That makes $153.86 spent. So even with some awesome Boden sale purchases, I still didn’t go over budget.
I’m not going to reflect on my Great Shopping Plan of 2010 at this time. Honestly, the past few months, I just wasn’t feeling it. I feel like I’ve gotten the hang of keeping to a budget with my clothes shopping, and documenting it just feels boring to me now. But I have a new project lined up for 2011, which I’ll talk about on Friday. I’m super excited about this one: it will be called 11 in 2011. Stay tuned 🙂
