{recap} Wardrobe Update - August

  Wednesday, August 31, 2016 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,,,, 
Once again I couldn't resist a sale! I ran into Roundabout for a few minutes earlier in the month to bring in some items and it just happened to be the end of their sale, so it was 75% off clothes and 60% off shoes and accessories. I scored a pair of Cole Haan pumps that I had tried on almost every time I've visited the store. I also got a fun printed green tank for only $9.75 (it was brand new with tags!)

I also used some advertising money to buy a couple pieces for Fall. A black cashmere sweater and long sleeve tee from Everlane. I've been wanting both for quite some time, especially since I got my crazy Proenza Schouler pants, so it was the perfect time! Sadly the sweater is back-ordered until October, but I likely won't need it until then anyway.*

Finally I stopped by Lord and Taylor last week because I had a 25% off clearance coupon. I bought a dress and tank for $29 total! Woohoo!

*I was emailed last night and told the sweater is out of stock so they canceled that part of my order. Such a shame since that was why I made the whole purchase! Oh well.
