{recap} French Wardrobe Challenge - November



  Friday, November 28, 2014 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,, 
I was doing so well this month, until this past Sunday when all hell broke loose. I went to the outlets with Lydia and spent far too much money and knocked out three of my seven items, ha ha. I was also gifted the Yama shoe from Naot, which was featured earlier this week. So four new items, not too bad. We'll see what happens this weekend though, Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales may be my downfall!



THE RULES
  1. Just five seven 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.

  1. I love how you've described it as "all hell broke loose"... and I love your deer themed pieces. I would have been unable to resist those.

  2. Aw it's like Christmas sweaters!! So cute! :) I've been thinking of doing this next season but I get the feeling I am really going to struggle....

    Let me know if you get anything from the sales. I'm thinking of getting a little make up and some stuff from ASOS but will see how I go...
