see recap here) and I knew that I needed to sit tight this month. Fortunately for my wallet, I had very little opportunities to shop and I was able to really make up for some of last month's spending.
I've been looking to replace my gold Cole Haan sandals (seen here) for a while, but I haven't been able to find any that are as comfortable as these Cole Haan ones. I even went back and bought them in black a few years ago, but of course, they are several seasons old and it is nearly impossible to find sandals that aren't a thong style. I set up an eBay search for Cole Haan sandals and a white pair exactly like mine popped up a couple of weeks ago, brand new for $35. I just received them and haven't had a chance to wear them yet.
This month, I purchased:
1) Old Navy White Top - $16 - 20% sale = $13
2) Old Navy Polka Dot Shorts - $11 Clearance - 20% sale = $9
3) Old Navy Glitter Flats - $5 Clearance - 20% sale = $4
4) Old Navy Striped Shirt (not pictured) - $5 Clearance - 20% sale = $4
5) Cole Haan sandals (not pictured) - eBay = $35
Total = $65
Also, the BCBGeneration wedges that I bought last month did not work out. The insole was made of espadrille material and it was painful to walk in them. I returned them to Marshall's and because I had used a combination of gift card/cash to purchase them, I now have a $40 gift card to Marshall's.
Finally, we were supposed to close on our house this morning, but the closing has been moved to next week. In the meantime, I've been packing and sorting my closet. I sold $142 of clothes to Buffalo Exchange (took a store credit) and donated anything that they didn't buy.
