February Shopping Summary




1. Old Navy Military Jacket – $14.05 ($35, plus 15% off, plus $25 gift card)

2. Stella & Dot Earrings via Poshmark* (seen here)

3. Express Stella Skinny Jeans via Poshmark* (seen here)

4. Forever 21 Sweater ($10 on sale, used store credit from a return)

5. ASA Sanchez ball gown via Burlington Coat Factory – $54.60 (seen here)

*$35.50 total minus $16.40 in Poshmark credit (get your own using code HBAMM) = $19.10 for both items

Total = $87.75

Back in January I said my goal was to wear the items I purchased or received that month and not spend money on myself.  Well, I definitely wore those items but I did end up spending some money on myself in February.

The Old Navy Military jacket was a total impulse purchase.  Not sure I’m going to keep it yet, to be honest.

I love my original pair of Express Stella jeans so I’d been stalking Poshmark looking for a pair below retail.  When I found this pair and was able to bundle them with a pair of pearl earrings (another hole in my jewelry collection) I was sold.  Plus, I had all that credit from sales and from people signing up with my code that they were a steal!  Retail, those two items together would be over $100!

The sweater was also an impulse purchase.  But $10 AND I had store credit?  Sure.  Who couldn’t use a navy sweater? Now, if only I could find a black crewneck sweater.

Finally, my ball gown.  I didn’t HAVE to buy this.  But, really, would you have passed this up?  Plus the fact that I hadn’t bought much else in February means I was able to afford it easily.

So, for March I’m going to continue my goal of shopping my closet, selling items I no longer need, and saving my moolah.

    Is that sparkly skirt the one you have but in silver? 🙂

    I would love to see a post where you show us some of the military jacket styles! That seems up my alley 🙂

      Nope. My skirt is actually blush pink and it’s from The Limited. But maybe I should try pairing the navy sweater with it!

      I did a post back in October on ways to wear military jackets and showed three different styles. Of course, those three aren’t available any more but I’m sure there are similar ones out there!

    It looks like you did really good this month, I’ve heard that the express jeans fit really nicely. Pearl earrings really are just a classic, I love that you’re a just a little bit more unusual than the typical pearl studs, they’re really pretty on the little hoop.

      My favorite part about Express jeans is that they are tight enough on me where I want them to be tight but not super tight on my ankles. So, skinny jeans that aren’t super skinny which is what I like.

      I suppose I could do a post with all the photos that have inspired me to want a military jacket! I ended up returning this one, though. It fit me kind of funny.
