My first purchase of the month was this StyleMint Dinsmore Dress ($49.98). I wanted a striped dress but with thin stripes and this is perfect. Plus it came with a belt and I needed one that I could use on other dresses as well. I haven't worn it yet...but I love it.
Next up an online purchase from Forever 21. I had a colored blazer on my hole in my closet list and I love this coral one ($27.80). Love this striped tank top (again with the skinny stripes) for $7.80. I also ordered a pencil skirt ($17.80) but it didn't fit well so I returned it for a store credit.
I found this maxi dress on clearance at Target for $20.48. I'm kicking myself that I didn't have one of their $5.00 off coupons at the time. Still not a bad deal though and it fits great.
I won this Fossil Marlow bag on eBay for $55.64. It was new with tags and had the original receipt inside where it was purchased in April for $158. Not sure why they sold it on eBay and didn't return it but it works for me. I have been using it every day since I got it.
I ordered these fantastic ikat shorts ($10.50), navy cardigan ($20 - another thing on my hole in my closet list) and running tank ($10) from Old Navy.
A trip to H&M yielded a comfy dress ($12.95 pictured above) and two swim suit cover ups at $4.95 each.

I still went over my self imposed $200 budget but it's getting better. I read about these people who do shopping bans for a year and wonder how they do it. I love the idea of buying less, only buying a few quality items and not cheap "fast" clothing... but I'm having trouble actually doing it. I think I made a little progress in my second month of "budgeting" and I'm going to keep working on it!
