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!

  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.

  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...

  3. I think I'd have to bend the rules for those silver and grey shoes!

  4. embellished intarsia llama sweater is super cute and so perfect for holiday season!

    a possible fantasy

  5. Those knits look so cute and cosy! Good purchases I think! :)

    I did really well this month (not purchasing a lot) so I've been resisting the sales......will see how long that lasts, haha!
