MY BODY TYPE & SHOPPING PREFERENCES

I am normally a US 4 on bottoms (designer US 4, Banana Republic 2).

I’m an inverted triangle and normally wear an Small or 2 (smallest sizes in all mainstream brands except for designer brands where I usually take a US 4.

My bottoms for jeans is a 25.

I am also 5’6″ and fairly slim overall. Small busted (A cup).

I will say for my shoulders I ALWAYS take a US 6 in designer brands, or a US 4 in Banana Republic for instance, because my shoulders are large and my body is slim.

I am super picky and hate itchy items, too-tight things and anything that doesn’t look or feel expensive and wonderful.

$9 is $90 is $900.

The price makes no difference to me.

WHY I BOUGHT IT

Thrifted? On sale? Perfect. I thought it was more of a summer dress but it is actually jacquard and more autumn / winter -style rather than summery…

Love the thickness of the jacquard.

Stylish, sheath-cut, great pockets, boxier…

SIZING 5/5

Size 6 fits perfectly for my shoulders.

COLOUR 5/5

I got out of $60,000 of debt in 18 months using TheBudgetingTool.com. Since then, I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K (savings rate = 85%). I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.
