Being a grown up is equal parts awesome and hard. It’s awesome because I know how much money I get to spend on myself every month. It’s hard because I can blow through that amount pretty quickly. So I try to be responsible with my purchases. The hardest part is limiting myself to only 1 or 2 lip colors a month so I have money left over for actual clothes. This month, I managed to do it! Here’s what I put in my shopping cart this month.
September Shopping Cart
I was super excited about Project Runway Winner Ashley Nell Tipton’s first capsule collection with JC Penney. As my style has become a little more subdued, I was worried there wouldn’t be anything in her collection for me, but I was pleasantly surprised!
ANT Long Sleeve Button Down Crop Top in Black Lipstick Print (they are little lipsticks!!)
Because ANT’s style is known for colors (especially pastels), prints, and very feminine silhouettes, I was unsure if there would be anything I’d actually wear. Don’t get me wrong; I love the stuff she makes. It’s just not my personal style. But I found some great pieces! I love the little lipstick pattern so much; it’s black which I love, and the print is kitschy without being overpowering. I’ve also been looking for a couple of skirts to go with my more colorful tops (and by colorful I mean gray and black/white striped). I can’t wait until this gets here so I can try it all out!
Eileen Fisher Bateau Neck Cap Sleeve Dress in Black (only available in red and blue)
Thanks for my fabulous friend Annette, and amazing blogger buddy Grechen, I am absolutely obsessed with Eileen Fisher. Her pieces speak to my neutral/classics loving heart; they are beautifully made and impossibly chic. I totally admit that her stuff is pricey, but it’s worth it. Not only will they last, but they’ll stay in style forever. Since I am so drawn to easy shapes and neutral colors right now, this dress caught my eye every time I was on the Nordstrom site….. which is pretty often. When I saw it go on sale, I jumped on it. Then, during checkout, I realized I had 2 Nordstrom notes – even more savings! I ended up getting this dress for under $100 which is no small feat. I can’t wait to try it with my flatform sandals for the rest of the summer, then layer it up with boots in the winter!
I would like to think that I’m finished shopping for the fall/winter, but I know better. There are a few items I want from ellos, as well as some items I have my eye from the RebDolls basics collection, as well as some things from Your Big Sister’s Closet. Sometimes I think I should get another job just to pay for my clothes habit……..
