So, I’m a self proclaimed compulsive shopper. I tend to get on kicks and run with them, be it earrings when I had short hair – necklaces this year, or dresses and skirts for summer…I just have to have all of it. If I could wear a dress a day for the entire spring/summer season I would.
Husband and I do try to stay on a moderate weekly budget for our personal spending, so I thought compiling my weekly purchases here it would not only help me help you snag a good deal – but also keep me in check budget wise.
I didn’t go crazy this week – even with my having Good Friday off and browsing my two fave money savers, TJ Maxx and Marshalls. I felt like I had a mental block, I couldn’t buy ANYTHING. Not even home goods. The one issue with building a house, you have no idea what’s going to go where.
I did manage to snag a few things:
This Prabal Gurung for Target dress, half off $22.00
This sheer Mossimo peplum top, Target – $24.99 (so flattering)
These super unique lace up polka dot sandals, Forever 21 – $22.80
And finally this red a-line polka dot skirt, Forever 21 – $22.80
I’m still on the fence with the Prabul Gurung dress, while its super flattering to my shape – I just don’t know about the fabric in southern heat…The Mossimo peplum top is probably one of the most romantic feeling things I own. It’s just pretty to look at and you just feel pretty wearing it.
I can’t speak to the shoes and skirt yet, but I hope I love them. Forever 21 can always be tricky to buy online from – BUT I do often because you can return for a full refund with Forever 21, you just ship the merchandise back. I also got a taupe waist bow belt from Forever 21 – purely for free shipping. Forever 21 does free shipping for orders over $50, and while shipping typically runs $5-$6 with Forever 21, I’d rather have something tangible that I can use. And who doesn’t love bows?
So, that runs my total at about $50.00 at Forever 21 and $46.99 at target. Right at my weekly budget for shopping. (It’s not even Monday yet, bets on how soon I’ll go over my budget?)
