I'm mostly satisfied with these purchases. The only thing keeping me from saying it was a great month are the infinity scarf and the handbag. I'm still on the fence about the handbag. It's small, and the fact that all I can
fit cram in it are my phone, keys, and some cash makes me think I'll probably end up returning it this weekend. The (not pictured) scarf was an impulse purchase. I never buy anything from mall stands; this scarf was a first. I guess there's a good reason for that - after a few wears it's already started to tatter.
As for the pants, the shoes, the sweaters, and the scarf? I highly anticipate getting even more wear from them once spring rolls around.
For the first time in a long time, I don't have anything to report in the "bought but returned" category. I've been really busy with school, so my online shopping was limited to one Target haul.
I also don't have any pressing needs, although I'm checking LOFT's website on a daily basis to see if any of the Lou & Grey pieces I have my eye on have gone on sale. I also finally found a pair of black booties that seem to be what I'm looking for, but it also seems too late in the season to buy a pair, especially when they're not at a clearanced price. Hopefully this contentment will last me through March, though I'm guessing it will only last through spring break. Here's to hoping that I've worked hard enough to deserve a treat or two by then!
