Last month, I created a $50 budget for accessories and $0 for clothes and shoes.
For accessories, I ended up spending about $35 on a Anne Klein Silk Scarf and the DIY sweater clip…not bad. But towards the end of the month, I purchased $96 in clothes at Arden B! They suckered me in with the whole ‘Buy One Get One Half Off‘ deal.
What did I end up getting for $96?
I got the embellished tiered dress and a bandage mini skirt. As long as I have an occasion to wear these items, they’re worth it. I did need a casual black skirt, because the only other one I have is a pencil skirt…and whenever I wear it, it looks like I’m going to work. At least I didn’t buy pants or shoes because that would be completely unneccessary.
So, for this month, I’m continuing the September budget. No spending on clothes and shoes, but $50 for accessories. Let’s hope I have more self-control this time around!
