{recap} Wardrobe Update - November



  Friday, November 29, 2019 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,,, 

Happy day after Thanksgiving! I hope all my American readers had a great holiday and ate lots of turkey (or no turkey if you're vegetarian!)

This month I added a few pieces to my closet but paid $0 out of pocket! Love when that happens.  Last week Everlane surprised me with a $20 credit and since I couldn't decide between two pairs of jeans ($30 difference in price, haha) I decided to just go for a plain v-neck tee.

I also bought a couple things during Shopbop's Buy More, Save More sale with my store credit from my partnership with them. They should arrive on Monday, hopefully they both fit or I'll be sending them back....sad. It took me HOURS to decide what to get. Funny how even when something is "free" you second guess all your decisions. I had so many things in my cart and Christian helped me whittle it down to boots and a sweater. I'll be on the lookout for a few of the other things I wanted to actually go on sale (more than the 20% off I would have gotten if I bought 4 of the things I wanted)

I still haven't made my Net-a-Porter sale purchase but I will probably buy something next month at the end of the sale.  Right now I have about $75 in Paypal thanks to Ibotta and Survey Junkie and should have a payment from RewardStyle on the way as well. That'll help soften the blow if/when I splurge on something.

UPDATE: Sadly had to return the boots as they were a lot chunkier than I expected and I didn't like how they looked on my feet.

  1. You did so good this month! I hope your new shopbop pieces fit! Also I'm curious how much can you actually make doing surveys?

    1. It depends on how many you do, I never did too many, but on that particular site I've made $140 in 2 years (I think.) Lately I've just been doing the super quick surveys that only get you .10, ha ha. On another site I was on I earned a TON of Southwest flight points but I've since been too lazy to do multiple sites.

  2. You did so well this month! I bought just three things two but only two of them were gift card buys, haha! I had to use up the last of my Christmas gift cards :)

    The tee looks like a really good choice and I hope you love the striped knit and boots when they arrive!

    Hope that you are having a wonderful weekend :)
