I have $50 left of my monthly shopping budget, and I'm torn on a few things. (There are polls for these at the bottom of this post! Go vote!)
First of all - I ordered this sweater from Target. It was on sale for $10.50, and I had tried on a super large size of this in store a few months back and really liked the sweater just not the fit of the XL. It worked out perfectly because I ordered a pair of shoes and a recipe box for $40 and needed $10 more for free shipping. So, I ordered it in medium, and I'm not sure that I love it. I need opinions - keep it or return it? (Sorry for the bathroom photos but I wanted to get these up quickly!)
I feel like the sweater looks fine here:
But I don't love it here:
The other thing I need help with is choosing shoes - do I buy these:
They're $18. I like them because they're different - the cap toe is trendy right now but I think the pattern adds a bit of unexpected fun. Also, I'm not sure if you can tell from this picture, but there is a cobalt piping between the black and the animal print on both sides, which I think also adds extra interest. I hesitated buying them for two reasons - first, I have plenty of pumps (ok, I have plenty of shoes, period). Second, the right shoe has a bit of fray on the toe (you can see the fray in the middle picture above), and a very, very slight stain on the inner edge (I could also check other DSWs for a cleaner pair).
Or do I buy these?
These were $25. I actually have a very similar Steve Madden pair on my wishlist. I loved how fun these were, and the double ankle strap is super cute. I hesitated here because I'm not sure how much wear a pair of sequin heels will get (I already own a pair of black sequin pumps), and I am also not sure this is the best price I can find these for.
So...which of these heels do I get? Or do I not get either of them? I can't do both, because that would wipe out the rest of my clothing budget for January, and I already bought another pair of shoes this month. What do you think?
