This month I finally nabbed a few pieces that I had been hoping would go on sale. The wait paid off, and I was able to get almost everything on a discount. I say almost because the one thing I ended up spending more than the original price on? This damn vest. I had it in my online shopping cart for months but never pulled the trigger, and then it sold out. I wavered on getting it via eBay since I knew I'd be paying more, but I managed to make enough off my own eBay sales this month that I could justify it. I'm really glad I did because I've been wearing it constantly! As you can see above, I gravitated towards navy and red pieces this month, and the vest is a great pairing with both. It's also been perfect for our mild October weather here in Chicago.
I also crossed an item off my list that's been there forever- a new wallet. My Target one served me well for a few years, but it didn't hold very much and was on its last legs. Thanks to the Kate Spade Friends & Family sale I was able to grab this adorable leopard-print one that will work well with my bags. Because what kind of monster doesn't match their wallet to their bag?
How did you do this month?
