{recap} Wardrobe Update - February



  Friday, February 26, 2021 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,, 

I can never seem to make it a whole month without buying something! This month it was a pair of jeans. They're not necessarily a "new" item because it is an exact replacement of a pair I currently own. I originally bought these Le Skinny de Jeanne jeans in April 2015 from Shopbop and they have been worn soooooo many times. When I bought them they were a major splurge at $141 (retail $189) but proved to be a worthy purchase. (According to my Wardrobe Update that month I used $100 in a gift card so they were $40) This time I scored them for $30!


My Mom has already had to patch my current pair once because a seam started tearing at the back. FRAME still makes this same style but I really love the wash I bought and wanted the exact same color to replace my current pair. I think I've been searching for over a year. There was a false alarm at the end of last year where I bought a pair and the seller never sent them - UGH! This time I was successful and the pair looks like it has never been worn! I'll obviously keep my current pair because they have wear left, but I feel better knowing I have a pair waiting in the wings.

  2. Such a good idea to buy a replacement for something you love, just in case! It's amazing you were able to get such a good deal on an unworn pair too! :)

    I wanted to slow my spending this year too but I've found I've bought a few little things here and there! While I'm still under budget I'm not entirely convinced I'll be able to have any no buy months this year, we will see how I go!

    Hope that you are having a good weekend :)
