April Purchases

I was out of control in April.
Totally.
I have no excuse.
Here are my purchases, that actually came from 
all over - let me explain.

First there were the on-line purchases, which were:
SHOES from Zappos.

Nude peep pumps from Fergalicious and TSUBO heels
these added up to 72.99 USD 

Then I went to a local store and did a little bit more damage.

Eileen Fisher lavender cardi  9.99 USD   American Ragpie rust cardigan 5.99 USD

Gentle Fawn dress 9.99 USD   Rachel Roy tan dress 9.99 USD


Then I traveled to Brazil for work and made a quick
stop at a shoe store. Yes, shoe store - 
and picked up some locally made goods.
43.71 USD
Tan laser cut wedges - check out those heels !

Barbie pink patent wood heels


Zapatinho de Luxo brand flats 

Both added to 75.89 USD

Came back from my trip and picked up some amazing
accessories: Ralph Lauren tartan and animal print scarf,
Animal print scarf from INC and a grey striped neck wrap.
Each one for 3.99 USD


Then I encountered this long fabulous flowing dress
from I heart Ronson for 19.99 USD - minus 25% off , it
was actually 14.99 USD


 Then I met this striped jacket by Modern Amusement,
who gave in for 9.99 USD

 A tan beret, for when I go back to Paris (wink*!) and a tan belt.


I had been looking for some orange and came across two items :
Bella long sleeve cotton tee for 1.99 USD and
Orange Sawary blouse 8.99 USD

Print TOP SHOP 1.99 USD

Finally, below are items that are from last month, which
I forgot to include in my March purchases...
Zora brand pleated grey skirt 13.99

Exclusive! brand jean flats 3.99 USD

Animal print jumper 8.99 USD

I went overboard.

It all added up to (gulp!)

319.74 USD

I am speechless.

I went overboard too. Wait till you see- i'll post it tonight. I think we spent about the same (or I spent a little more than you) between last month and this month- but you got waaay cuter stuff lol! I can't believe your bargains- <3 your choices. my fav's are the pleated skirt and the nude pumps and cutout wedges.

don't feel bad, unless of course you were robbing someone of their $ to buy stuff lol! you paid for it- you get to enjoy it!

I feel your pain though. I was going to put myself on a limited shopping budget for the rest of the summer because I felt bad about spending so much, but after thinking about it I have decided that I don't need to. I have made huge progress financially, have saved a lot of $, and just need to step back before I buy and evaluate a little more carefully. I don't regret my purchases either.

For some reason women can't seem to spend $ on themselves without feeling bad about it! I still feel guilty... and I did no harm to anyone!

Ya he visto tus dos nuevas adquisiciones naranjas, ya tengo ganas de ver como las combinas :)

The grey pleated skirt is my favorite of all your purchases this month because it is trendy and classic at the same time.

Can't WAIT to see those pink pumps. I am dying over all the shoes. I noticed the cutout wedges when you wore them - I LOVE the heel! And orange... yes. I find myself purchasing anything I can get my hot little hands on if it's orange.

Emma said...

I am happy for you. I dream about going overboard. I'm in NYC right now and I want to buy everything in sight.
I always have had problems with moderation. I'm more of an all or nothing kind of gal.

Those laser cut wedges are gorgeous! I want a pair!!
