{recap} Wardrobe Update - August

  Monday, August 31, 2015 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,, 
I started off this month with two big purchases during Roundabout Resale's Summer sale.  I picked up two dresses that couldn't be more different. I wanted to get just one but couldn't decide.  I've worn one already and hope to wear the second soon!

At the end of the month I bought two pairs of brown heels from The Real Real (been searching for months.) Funnily enough, both pairs were never worn, even though they were consigned! How lucky did I get?! Thankfully the cheaper pair, by Prada, fit perfectly so it was a no brainer to keep those. The Chloe heels were a teeny bit too big, but that made it easier to return them. Keep an eye out as they'll probably be back in stock on the site soon!

Next month we start with a clean slate as we're entering Fall buying!
