GULP! That is a large number for me. So, let’s see how that happened.

Well, the biggest chunk and probably the most expensive single item of clothing I own aside from wedding dress is the bow print dress from Comfort Me. That is WAY more than I usually spend on something but, admittedly, similar to my wedding dress, I put it on and never wanted to take it off. And, let’s be honest, it’s definitely more versatile than wedding dress, right?

So, if you subtract that splurge then I’m only about $30 over my monthly budget. And that extra little bit came from a last minute trip to Old Navy before my vacation. Not sure why, but I REALLY wanted a long black cardigan to wear on the plane.

Also, I wanted to note that items 2, 3, and 5 all replace something I had in my closet but decided to get rid of because they were too worn. Plus, I took an entire large suitcase full of clothes to the clothing swap I attended (seriously, it was a LOT of stuff) so my closet probably actually had a net loss for the month.

And I know I say this every month but I DO NOT NEED TO SHOP in April. Seriously, I don’t. Except maybe to use some of my Sole Society credit to get some red heels I can actually walk in. Which of these do you like better?

    Dang, you got a KILLER deal on that J. Crew cardigan! To pay the same for J. Crew as you paid for Old Navy — incredible!

    Personally, I like the heels more than the wedges, but then again I’m not a huge fan of wedges unless they’re sandals. Plus the bow on the heels is really cute…

    That bow dress. LOOOVE it! Totally worth it, in my opinion. And I think I have the same blue/periwinkle/yellow pants that you got from the clothing swap!! (And my vote is for the wedges– seem a bit more supportive than the heels.)
