Closet Fashionista's Spending Challenge: September Recap

  Saturday, October 1, 2011 at 10:56 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:, 
Okay, so this was a bad month, I went shopping in NYC on the 3rd with Jamie-Lee and I gave myself a set amount I could spend without feeling guilty but, of course, I couldn't find anything. So I decided to let myself be bad the Sunday and Monday after instead and bought a few things that I'm not counting in my spending:
I also got a Marc by Marc Jacobs sweater from Gilt Groupe because when our intern left he sent me a gift card! (YAY for Paul!) BUT sadly it was too big and they didn't have a small for me to exchange so no more sweater...

I was also VERY bad and bought stuff from the Missoni for Target collection, but how can you pass up Missoni for under $60?! But sadly everything I bought was too big for me so I had to return it all except for a pair of flats for $30.

I have been doing this spending challenge for a full year now and I think it is time for me to stop doing my monthly recaps. [unless you guys still want me to] I think I have learned to curb my spending and only buy what will go to good use so I am also lifting the unspoken no shopping rule, but I will continue to watch what I buy and be careful with my spending.
