{recap} Wardrobe Update - July

  Friday, July 31, 2020 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:, 

I almost made a purchase this month but as of right now (Thursday the 30th) I haven't bought any clothes in July. Success! The purchase I almost made will still be happening, I'm just patiently waiting to see if it (or they...) go cheaper in Net-a-Porter's sale. Refreshing the product page every few hours to make sure it doesn't go to "low stock," if so I'll just buy!

I made a bit of extra money this month from a small side project and some of my RewardStyle income cleared. That is what will be used to make the purchase mentioned above.

  4. You are always so disciplined, here shops are closed and i still manage to shop via instagram accounts.

  5. My budget post looks like my closet threw up, I need your willpower.

    1. Haha, well as we know - when I lose my willpower I spend more than you do, so I think you're still okay.
