Recently, I have stumbled upon several bloggers who were keeping track of their purchases through posting them on the blog. Since I tend to buy a lot of stuff (at least according to my family) and I definitely don’t wear it all I decided to try doing the same thing. I will post regularly about what I have bought and how it falls within my current wardrobe.
I don’t have a definite style, I tend to wear girly dresses, pencil skirts, heels, Converse, jeans, miniskirts,… Almost anything that works with my body type. I often find pictures of outfits that are really appealing to me but I am unable to emulate the look since I am not skinny model with great skin and effortless hair. But I try to translate at least something from their looks into my wardrobe. Sometimes it’s just plain mess, sometimes it works.
What I should mention is that I love to shop in sales and in thrift stores. I can hardly see me buying anything over 200 Kc (about 10 dollars) and especially in thrift stores I usually buy clothes for maximum of 50 Kc (2.5 dollars). It might seem like I spend way more than I actually do. March has been one of my worst month when it comes to spending money on clothes. I have gone over my budget so I will try to keep it simple in April.
Anyway, what have I bought in March?
From top, left to right:
Jeans, trench coat, three dresses (the blue ones are vintage and they will need some altering but nothing I wouldn’t be able to do myself) - thrift store
Dresses – H&M, Kapp Ahl
Sneakers – Promod
Top – H&M
Jacket – Kapp Ahl
Purses – Madrid (the brown one is from Blanco, the other from an open air market)
Purses and polka dot sneakers – Lindex (I got the beige purse for free in a promotion)
Overall, I spent about 2000 Kč (100 dollars) which is much more than I spend usually. Generally, I try to keep my spendingsunder 30 dollars unless I get some birthday or Christmas money.
All together, it looks like I am a shopaholic. I promise I am not! Really, I don’t usually buy that much and I think this will be a good way to track my purchases and keep me sane.
