{recap} French Wardrobe Challenege - March

I made it through the first month of the French Wardrobe challenge! I bought 4 things this month, one was returned, two were basics and then one was the 1st of my 5 items.  Remember in my announcement post I mentioned the Carven Paris map print dress? Well...I finally found it on Yoox! It was still a bit of a splurge but I had been looking for it for so long so I think it was worth it. Here's my recap:

  1. Just five standout pieces per season.
  2. Quality over quantity.
  3. Basics don’t count.
  4. Accessories don’t count, unless you’re spending a lot more than usual.
  5. Socks and underwear don’t count.
  6. Shoes do count.

Part of my Five:
    • None
    Ordered and Returned:


    1. That dress is perfection! You did really well last month. I've been shopping like there's no tomorrow. I really need to rein it in!

    2. You're doing really well with the challenge - I'm not sure I'm disciplined enough to make it work. And I just love the Carven dress, that print is so pretty.
