Last month I did a post here on Looking Fabulous on a Budget and showed you what I have purchased since I started blogging in February. Fall is my favorite season for fashion and I had put myself on a spending freeze for July and August so that I could get a few things on my fall wishlist.
So why am I posting pictures of these clothing items when I was on a shopping ban? Well, I failed when Anthropologie had an extra 20% off the markdowns on three tops on my summer wishlist. Then, I got a few amazing deals using Gap rewards.
Deletta Ruffle Rim Tank $15.99 // Maeve Silk Racer Tank $15.99// Clovelly Peplum Tank $15.99 ($47.97 minus $40 gift card = total spent $7.97)
Barefoot Dreams Cardigan $39.00 ($90 on sale for $59.00 minus $20 Nordstrom Note)
Steve Madden Ecentric $10 ($80 minus 25% promo code and $50 Gap rewards = $10.00)
Old Navy Chiffon Maxi $1.25 ($35 minus 25% promo code and $25 Gap rewards = $1.25)
In April, I purchased the Orange Charlie Sweater from J.Crew Factory. It turned out to be defective and after one wearing the bottom hem unraveled. So it went back for a refund.
I failed my spending freeze but I got some great deals that I could not pass up. The original prices on the Anthropologie tops totaled $214 and with the sale and using a gift card I had forgotten about, got them for $7.97. The Barefoot Dreams cardigan has been on my wish list since last Christmas and I was able to get it for over 50% off. My total spent in July (deducting the $25 J.Crew Factory refund) was $33.22.
Now back to the spending freeze for August!
