November Shopping Summary


In the interest of full disclosure, I will tell you that I bought a few things that are either A. getting returned or B. I haven’t decided about yet. One of which is this sweater in heather gray. Do I really need yet another gray sweater? Speaking of which, Jen over at Fashionably Employed featured my gray sweater remix yesterday.

Oh, I also ordered this vest from Express. But it hasn’t arrived yet either. Who else hates FedEx SmartPost?

And, sadly, I ordered a cargo jacket/military jacket/utility jacket from J. Crew Factory for $35 shipped. But it doesn’t fit (too big) and it’s final sale so no returns. I’ll be taking that one to the consignment shop.

So, what did I buy and keep in November?

november_shopping_summary1. Groopdealz Herringbone Puffer Vest – $35

2. H by Hudson Booties c/o Shopbop (originally $300) (seen here)

3. Old Navy Rockstar Jeans – paid for with a gift card (originally $25 on sale) (seen here)

4. Henry & Belle Jeans via Stitch Fix – $118 (originally $148 but I had credit)

5. Karen Zambos Couture Dress via Le Tote – $118 (originally $158) (seen here)

I’m so glad I jumped on ordering the Groopdealz vest. The quality is even better than J. Crew Factory one because this one is actual woven herringbone, not just printed onto the fabric. I’ve already worn it three times.

Also, I decided to spend money on jeans this month because with my current job and winter I’m going to be wearing jeans a lot more now so it’s worth it to buy ones I love. And neutral colored jeans keeps it interesting.

And, yes, you guys convinced me to keep the dress.

The shoes, though. These are now the second most expensive pair of shoes that I own. Gulp. Granted, I am very fortunate to get the c/o gift cards from Shopbop from running ads on my blog but I still feel a teeny bit guilty about owning something that costs so much! Here’s hoping they stay in style for awhile!

P.S. After I wrote this post I did a bit of post-Thanksgiving shopping and ended up with two of the Old Navy plaid flannel shirts – one in red tartan and the other in a black and white buffalo plaid. I also picked up a boyfriend cardigan in light taupe brown to replace one I’ve been meaning to get rid of. All three were paid for with a gift card.

    Those boots are SO cute! I don’t blame you for not wanting to mess them up, though. I’d be super nervous to wear something that pricey as well. But I imagine if they’re that expensive, they must’ve been made pretty well, right? Maybe not to the point where they can withstand slushy salty sidewalks, of course, but I’d certainly hope $300 boots are awfully high quality and can withstand more than $30 boots.
