{recap} Wardrobe Update - October



  Wednesday, October 31, 2018 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,,, 
I misbehaved this month and did some shopping when I was invited to a preview of the new Boscov's location in Milford! I got a couple sweaters and cute pearl Mickey earrings! It could have been a lot worse because they have such great deals, so I'm still counting it as a win.

I also bought a couple clothing items on my birthday trip to Disney. But I used gift money on those and am not including them in this update. I got an Epcot Food & Wine Festival tee, Toy Story Land sweatshirt and an Eve hoodie (I bought Christian the matching Wall-E hoodie.)

And I I FINALLY found my backup pair of Vince Camuto Davilla ankle boots on Poshmark. I had to buy them again because my current ones are dying after being VERY loved for 4 years. They've been all over the world and walked hundreds (seriously, at least 100) of miles with me. I used ad money that was just added to my PayPal. Perfect!

  1. The ankle boots are lovely and it's great you got a replacement pair for your old favourites! I think you did really well only buying a few things this month, they all seem like great purchases! :) I bought quite a bit this month, ha! I was a little surprised when I tallied it all up for the post. I will need to spend less for the rest of the year, luckily only a couple of months left in it!

    Hope that you are having a good week :)
