{recap} French Wardrobe Challenege - July

I added a couple new basics to my close this month, a new pair of sandals as well as a new sweater for the Winter (not sure I should have included it in here, but I bought it so I am.) You will also notice that one of my five items from the previous posts is missing. I decided to sell it because I don't think I will get much use out of it. Lesson learned. No more impulse thrifting buys.

I also bought a few things during Roundabout Resale's Summer Clearance. All the items were brand new with tags, how awesome is that?! A Burberry London dress, which is part of my 5 and a pink cashmere sweater that I'm putting under basics.  I also bought some crazy Tabitha Simmons boots that should technically be part of my 5, but they're Winter so I'm not counting them. They are in the photos anyway. [Oddly enough, I posted them back in 2011, how funny is that?!]




THE RULES
  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.
MY PROGRESS

Part of my Five:
Basics: 
Accessories:
Exempt:  Not counting any items I got from brands or bought for Marshalls Project FAB (bought with a gift card)
Winter Items: I'm still trying to limit these types of purchases, but I can't resist a good deal!
