New in the Closet: July

July brought some interesting items into the closet, starting with two vintage silk scarves which I came across as I dropped off items at a consignment shop. One was a huge 1990's Moschino Larioseta Como scarf for 13.90 USD, the other, a long fuchsia striped Escada Sport for 7.50 USD. I kept on saying to myself that I did not need them but as I ran my fingertips on the thin hand sewn hems I just headed for the cashier and paid for them. I knew I'd regret it if I did not buy they right there and then. What would you have done ? 

Another fabulous thrift was this black sleeveless dress with a ruffle down one side, it's by Red Valentino and was just 19.26 USD. 
Another thrift store find was this fabulous grey leather suede belt with a rich caramel hue wooden buckle. It seems to be from a store in Japan as the original price was marked in Yen. My cost was 3.21 USD, the quality is superb.


A big colourful tote with leather straps La Pedrera Gaudí, a gift from my friend in Barcelona. 



A vintage marcasite and silver dragonlfy brooch from my great aunt. 
Total spent this month was 43.87 USD.
Seven months into the year, I've spent less than two hundred dollars in clothing, shoes, accessories. I could not be more pleased. How about you ? What's your YTD estimate money spent on clothing ?

I would have gone for the Escada scarf only (I find big patterns are harder to wear in scarves), but that ruffle dress is divine. I still am of the opinion that your belt is either Gap, BR or J. Crew, but likely made for the Japanese market. Those date tags are a dead giveaway - I've never seen another company do them...and I have seen a LOT of clothing labels in my thrifting adventures!

I've spent a fair chunk on my wardrobe this year, for sure. Probably over $1500, but I'm okay with that. It's my hobby - I don't actually spend much money on anything else.

Oh that ruffle dress is gorgeous! I keep seeing ruffles everywhere on blogs at the moment too.

I'd pick up the scarves as well - they are my impulse buys (even if I do find expensive ones) because they don't take up much room in my wardrobe! ;)

Still at $0 fashion spend for the year, which is a big improvement to last year! (Was at $1,500 by August).

Hope you have a great weekend ahead of you!
