Yes, a lot of new items made their way into my closet in January.   And you may have noticed I didn’t list prices next to the asterisked items from The Limited.  Well, they weren’t all gifts!  However, I feel it would be dishonest to list the prices since I bought all of that for $45 out of pocket thanks to a return, a gift card, reward coupons and crazy sale deals.

Also, I sold enough items on Threadflip to afford both the boots and the jacket for free, although I’m not sure the jacket is exactly what I want so I might try to resell it.

So, basically, my out of pocket costs for January were approximately $65.

And as you can see from this list some of those items haven’t even been worn yet (although, I have worn both the puffer vest and the burgundy cardigan but not to work and I didn’t take pictures).  So my goal for February is to wear the unworn items and use the money I normally would spend on myself to pay down my credit card.

Did you add anything new to your closet in January?

P.S.  Have you taken the reader survey yet?  Inquiring minds want to know.
