In case you missed them and are interested, part one is here, and part two is here. I'm also still looking for suggestions for my trip to LA next week. Send restaurant/drink/must see locations my way!!
Oh, and don't forget to enter my Sinless Cocktails giveaway!! It ends this weekend!!
- Big Star jeans, Alexis Suitcase, $15 (retail ~$100)
- INC red blazer, Goodwill, $6 (retail $70)
- BCBG pinstripe blazer, Goodwill, $6 (in my search, these run about $150 on the low end, maybe $80-$100 on sale)
A few notes: after factoring in tax, I actually spent about $152. I also bought a scarf similar to the white tartan one for $13, but I don't need 2 so I'm probably either going to give that one away or gift it, so I'm not counting that towards the total. Should I decide to keep it, I'll add it back in to my total. Also, since I didn't spend my $20 beauty budget, I decided to go back and get the sparkly shoes from this post for $25.
Then I went and bought a nail polish (Sally Hansen Greige Gardens) for $6.
So. $8 under budget plus $20 from beauty items, and I had $28 to spend. $25 went to the shoes, and $6 to the nail polish, so I came in around $5 over budget after you figure in tax. Overall, I'm super impressed with myself!!
