Ah, fall fashion. One of my favourite things about this season.
I’ve always been a fan of scarves, and boots, and sweaters; browns, greys, and deep, rich colours. And let’s not forget about layers!
As the weather gets colder, I find myself scrambling through all of my old sweaters and long sleeved shirts trying to find something that’s in style, that I still like, and something that I don’t look at and think “what in God’s name was I thinking when I bought this?”. I’m always disappointed with my collection, though. Does anyone else feel like they hate all of their clothes? Because I do. I really, really do. Now, I really enjoy clothing, makeup, accessories, and all that girly fashion stuff, but I sometimes can’t justify spending a good chunk of cash on something that won’t be in style for very long.
So, today, I changed that! I went on a little (while still in budget!) shopping spree; kind of a treat yo’self-day.
The most expensive item I bought was the poncho, but, it’s basically a blanket, a scarf, and a sweater all in one, so a $30 item just became three $10 items; winning! Both the poncho and the scarf are from Suzy Shier, the eyeliners are from ShoppersDrug Mart (but I’m sure they can be purchased at many drug stores), and the Paris tee is from Forever XXI. I also bought 2 pairs of jeans from Forever XXI, but you all know what jeans look like, so I didn’t photograph those.
Everything else I bought was on sale, and in total (for 7 items) I only spent around $125! That’s kind of amazing for how much I bought. Plus, these items will last me for the rest of the fall season, and probably into the spring, too. I’m hoping I’ll be able to keep these around for a while, and they won’t go out of style too soon.
Okay, I spent more than $125 considered I dropped another $35 at Bath and Body Works, but, you can’t put a price on those amazing candles and air fresheners.
But, what I’m really stoked for now, is having a reason to get all dolled up in my new clothes. :)
