What I bought: February 2018
So technically I didn’t buy the following two necklaces.
A very sweet reader (read her story here: Nailing a 6-figure job and leaving a toxic work environment) bought me a gift for all of my help (need help too? I offer coaching available here).
Unfortunately the t-shirt she chose did not come in the size I needed (SOLD OUT!. OF COURSE.).. so I picked out two gorgeous necklaces instead, and paid the difference:
I picked out this beautiful blue stone Nakamol statement necklace (sold out, but a very similar and smaller / simpler ladder style necklace is here):
And this pretty Soko horn reversible horn bar necklace:
One side is ivory-ish, the other is a dark brown..
And… that’s about it.
I did buy a bunch of stuff on Poshmark, but they were all pre-shown in my 2017 What I bought Edition, listed by category like “Tops, Shoes”, etc.
What I did instead, was sell stuff I no longer wear in my wardrobe nor want such as..
WHAT I SOLD INSTEAD
Made $120 off the following items, which I eagerly pushed back into my Budgeting Tool to give myself a bit of a refund / credit so I can save up for something I REALLY want in the future.
Not sure what it is yet (if anything at all, might end up plowing it into stocks and investing instead), but I want to build up some $$$ there.
GREY FELT SATCHEL
I have so many satchels I reach for every day over this one. It was a cute, whimsical purchase that I should have probably sat on for 36 hours instead of buying, but *shrug* live and learn.
TWO FOSSIL WATCHES & BANANA REPUBLIC TRIBAL BELT
I don’t wear these two Fossil watches. I thought I would, but in the end, I don’t really like Fossil watches in general because Olivia Burton has my heart and I have SO MANY of their pretty watches…
I think it’s the strap on Olivia Burton watches — they’re thinner and not as thick or bulky looking…
These are the three OB watches I own so far:
And I am really eying this one, but don’t love the smaller sized watch face, and I already have a bee.. a gold one.. (but not a ROSE gold one…you know?):
I also sold this Banana Republic belt that I.. Never.. Ever..Wore. and got on clearance:
I didn’t wear it because it’s first of all stretchy, and it creates bulges where there are none cuz I am not bulge-y.. and secondly, it was too tight for my comfort.
ZARA VEGAN SUEDE BLACK LEATHER MOTO JACKET
I went nuts and bought three of them — black, cognac brown and taupe.
I really don’t wear them often. I prefer shawl blazers, and I already had a few leather sleeve jackets I reached for WAY over this one.
Out of the three, I only really wear the taupe one often, not the black or brown because it is softer and goes better with my wardrobe palette as a neutral.
(Ironic #OOTD, I sold that satchel this month too)
CLUB MONACO MACKENZIE STRIPED SWEATER
I have so. many. striped. tops. and. sweaters.
I let this one go because it was a bit transparent, and I prefer my Saint James version shown below that is opaque, with the same colours, and sleeker.
So.. that was my month!
