- Old Navy striped skirt: $9 - One of my best purchases ever. Cost-per-wear under $1. Enough said.
- Target glitter sandals: $10 - Another item with a cost-per-wear under $1. They've been a go-to sandal during the summer months. I may have to retire them soon, but I may get another pair from Target this summer before they're no longer in stock.
- H&M black maxi skirt: $18 - I remember hesitating about spending $18 on a maxi skirt. While only featured 7 times on the blog, it's gotten a lot of wear off the blog (airports, traveling, running errands in the summer). I may have to replace this one in the future as it's starting to fade. Long story short: another great purchase.
- Sophie Theallet for The Limited handbag: $11 - After missing out on a really popular purse from Target, I wanted to find something similar. I waited and waited until this bag went on super clearance, and scored it for $11. It has easily been used more than 11 times.
- The Limited oatmeal blazer: $36 - When I bought this blazer, it fit like a glove. Now I think it's slightly too short and too tight (despite the ponte knit stretch). I don't love the 3/4 sleeves, but I don't hate them either. In hindsight, I probably shouldn't have bought it. But that might be coming from a person who used to love blazers and now is just meh about them.
- The Limited hi-lo dress: $45 - I had a hard time deciding whether this was a medium purchase or a bad one. Based on feeling: medium. Based on times worn: bad. I loved the way I felt in this dress when I bought it, and I still have that feeling when I wear it, but I don't wear it that much. I feel like it's too nice to be worn on non-special occasions, which means that it gets worn once or twice a year. (And yes, I realize I am completely avoiding talking about the hi-lo trend.)
This was another month where I make some big ticket purchases that I end up regretting. I'm not sure if I'm just being critical, or if I'm trying to learn a lesson here. On the other hand, my good purchases this month are actually great purchases-- they're all things I would buy again if I had to do this month over again. That's a great feeling, and I'm hoping to replicate it for the upcoming June 2015 budget report.
