February Shopping Summary

Jacket | Scarf | Earrings | Sports Bra

Welcome to what ended up in my closet in February. Just a few more things than in January. But,  my out of pocket costs for all of this totaled less than $30 so I think I’m doing pretty well at sticking to my “no shopping except for with store credit” thing.

I’ve been looking for an olive utility jacket for at least three years but every time I tried one on I felt like a box. This one from Shopbop finally fit the bill! And it was only $18 after my Shopbop credit.

Interesting story about this jacket, though. It came right before I left on my trip to Florida and I knew right away I was going to wear it. It came with the sleeves rolled up and on my way to the airport I finally rolled down the sleeves….and noticed one of the buttons was missing! I immediately got on my phone and emailed Shopbop customer service asking for a replacement and sent them a picture of the missing button. They responded before I was even on my plane! And less then five days later I had a new jacket and was able to ship the damaged one back for free. How’s that for customer service?? Which is why you should definitely check out the sale they’re having this week (details at the bottom of this post).

The scarf and earrings are both from Le Tote where I have credit for being an ambassador and from when people sign up using code ERIN25 (which gets you $25 off your first month). Believe it or not, I actually didn’t have any silver studs! And I think I mentioned that I kept thinking about the scarf after I got it in a previous Tote so I just decided to order it. Now its soft, furry goodness is all mine!

Influenster sent me a 40% off coupon to try Target’s new C9 bras. Some of my bras are over 5 years old so it’s about time I started replacing them. I already wore this one and love it. And it was only $10 after the coupon. I see more of these in my future.

Right now I’m debating whether or not to keep this sweater that’s in my current Tote. It’s more fitted on me than pictured, but I’ve already worn it three times. I just don’t know how I feel about using that much credit on something that’s 100% acrylic. I just worry that it will pill. Thoughts?

Also, I keep hearing rumors that one of the colors for spring is “rose quartz”. Aka “blush”. Since one of my blush tops is on injured reserve, I might keep my eye out for a replacement. I have some money from doing a focus group on grocery shopping and store brands that’s in the form of a Visa gift card that I could use. Plus, Shopbop‘s got a sale this week! It ends on March 5th, though, so I’d better get hopping!

    Well done this month! All great items that will get lots of use, I’m sure! And I’m glad that jacket came in stock for you! Come to think of it, I should really get rid of some old sports bras…I wear them constantly so some are way past their prime…

    Oh my gosh, it’s been ages since I’ve commented! (I always pop in but I’ve been really awful about commenting for a long time, so sorry!) It’s really cool that you’re going for a no spend aside from store credit, that’s pretty hard core and it seems like it’s working out for you. That’s amazing about the Shopbop customer service, I haven’t ordered from them but hearing things like that makes me want to. (The jacket is also super cute) And yaaay for new bras – damn, how did you make your last five years?! I feel like I need to know what bras you’re buying because that is all kinds of amazing, I normally get about a year out of mine before they start coming apart or the underwire starts pushing through. 😛

      HI! Welcome back 🙂

      I buy all my bras from Target! Both sports bras and regular bras. I think it helps that I am not particularly well-endowed so there’s not a lot of…work the bras have to do.
