Hey guys, it’s that time again. I feel like I am finally getting the hang of this. This month and last I think I did really well. I would have love to shop less but I am really happy with my purchases, I put in a lot of thoughts in everything that I’ve acquired for the past 2 months. I did not purchase anything just because it was on sale and I returned the impulse purchases.

Progress 

I started the month thinking about my upcoming trip to DC, I ended up not getting a coat because I find an old one and decided to go with that instead of spending money on a new shiny one ( although I really love new and shiny things). So YAY for personal growth :/ . With that when I saw the new white vest at Express I did not hesitate to get because I wanted one FOREVER. I was always addicted to the portofino and I’ve introduced it to many friends, when I discovered Gina’s blog I knew I wasn’t crazy or at least she’s just as crazy as I am. She introduced me to the barcelona cami, the portofino is a staple in my work attire, and the barcelona is now a staple in my fun going-out outfits. Needless to say I got my second printed one. Oh and a burgundy button down portofino shirt because currently I have zero burgundy in my closet and that was a major issue.

Lou & Grey has this gorgeous jacket that Fran mentioned, a stripe moto jacket might as well be called “Rachelle”, and I scored this baby for $20. I can finally give my J.Crew downtown fields jackets a break. I love and shop a lot at J.Crew and I decided to take a break a few months ago, then I saw that bucket bag and I decided it was worth it to lift the ban a little bit. I also found the perfect skinny mid rise black jeans, yes I’m particular like that. These are comfy and stylish and don’t look like leggings.

I love my Sam Edelman leopard slip-ons so much and I now consider them a staple in my closet. I got a pair of fun New Balance 580 sneakers, and just like I expected they are extremely comfortable and look so fun, but they do run 1/2 a size bigger.  Clearly I don’t like plain sneakers. My last purchase for the month is this origami skirt, it has just the right amount of sequin and I cannot wait to wear it during the Holiday festivities. I got it on sale but now I think it’s 30% off.

Update added 11/24/2014: I update this post throughout the month, and I did some shopping yesterday so I wanted to document that. I did my black Friday shopping early since so many stores sent out offers ahead of time. I got this Banana Republic black and white gingham shirt that fits me like a glove for $19 (yes $19 a combo of  coupons and left over birthday gift cards), I got it in small for reference. I was interested  in this one by Express but it  is see-through and requires a cami, so BR won. I also got the dark blue version of the mid rise skinny I mentioned above, and again they cost me $19. I guess that was my lucky number yesterday.

Overall, I added 10 new items to my closet and sold 13 on eBay.

 I updated the dreamlist and wanted to share it with you guys, I don’t necessarily plan on getting these soon, it’s more of a guide. I did  get my DVF dress, and next on my list are the Ferragamo flats, I saved and I’m ready to get them. But I do want to wait to see if there’s any good sales going on Black Friday, so I’ll be patient for a few more days. I added the Rocco bag because I have been obsessed with it for ages, I really love how Paige denim fits so eventually I would love a pair. There’s very specific types of shoes that I love, Mary Janes are one of them, but I’ve always had a hard time finding one I love. This one is a stunner and perfect in every way, so it is officially on my dreamlist.
