{recap} Wardrobe Update - July



  Wednesday, July 31, 2019 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,, 


I had a successful no shopping month! I did buy some nail polish during Net-a-Porter's Flash Beauty Sale but I used advertising money on it so it doesn't count, ha ha. Plus that's beauty, not fashion.  I still haven't bought anything in the Net-a-Porter End of Season Sale, trying super hard to resist so we'll see if I make it through the last couple weeks.  

I also have to keep our honeymoon in September in mind. I want to buy another pair of Ancient Greek Sandals while we're in Greece (because 6 pairs isn't enough, ha ha!) and I was hoping to buy something in Italy as well. I won't have enough saved up for my teal Gucci Marmont bag by then so we'll see what I do.

  1. You did well not getting anything in the sales! it's easier when you have a goal to work towards :) i did no buy July again this year and was proud I didn't spend anything on fashion, but to be honest I had a particularly spendy first 6 months of the year so it's not that great of an achievement, haha!

    Hope that you are having a lovely week :)

  2. I sadly did not make it through the month without shopping - and it was that sort of mindless shopping where I'm not even that impressed with any of my purchases. I need to do better next month!

  4. You are so good M! I think you're so very disciplined that I am almost envious ;)
    In my case, well I have not been able to do July's yet but cannot find a line between what I buy for me and what I buy for my on line shop.
