{recap} Wardrobe Update - February

  Wednesday, February 28, 2018 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,, 
Starting very soon I won't be able to buy as many pieces of clothing as I've become accustomed to. So it's a good thing I got a head start this month and didn't add anything new to my closet. And I've gotten this far so I might as well try to give up clothes shopping for Lent this year, right? One month to go!

UPDATE: Okay, I lied. I just got back from a quick lunch break trip to Roundabout because they were having their blowout sale (80% off clothes + shoes and an additional 20% off clearance). I ended up walking out with a $348 Robert Rodriguez dress for $16.80! Still going to try to go through all of March with no buying though.

  1. You can do it! I just realized I totally unintentionally didn't buy anything new this month either...maybe I'll try to ride that into March.

  2. $20 for the year is pretty impressive, even if only has been two months, and you can't resist a deal on a dress that good!

    1. Oops! Forgot to up the total! Haha. Its $36.80 now ;)

  3. Okay, wow! You did well only getting on dress in that amazing sale, what a bargain! I'd go nuts with discounts like that, haha! :) You are adjusting to having a smaller clothes shopping budget too with so few purchases this year!

    Hope you are having a great week so far! First day of autumn here in Brisbane, although the weather is still very summer-like, ha!

  4. I saw you in that Robert Rodriguez dress and you HAD to buy it...

    1. I almost left it! But it was just such a great deal I had to, haha.
