J. Crew Silk Cami, Butter London Bobby Dazzler, M Missoni sunglasses
Knowing I had birthdays and Christmas shopping to do this month, there wasn't much that came home with me. I'm at a really good point with my closet right now and there's not much I need. The only thing I can really think of is a new nice jacket, but Santa's elves may have slipped up on that one. Instead of going out and buying clothes, I'm trying to really focus on finding ways to wear what I have. That's been a lot easier since it cooled off here and I can mix things up without overheating.
J. Crew Silk Cami: originally $59.50, paid $25 (on sale + student discount)
I have a few of these already and love them to death. I wear them out, dressed up, dressed down, under a blazer or a sweater - they're some of the most versatile tops in my closet. I've been wanting a green one for a while, but I essentially refuse to pay full price for J.Crew anymore, so I was pleasantly surprised to find this the Monday before Thanksgiving. I think I need red next... (Still on sale online!)
Butter London Bobby Dazzler: originally $15, paid $2.60 (Nordstrom Rack clearance)
I love Butter London polish, but hate the price, so when I stumbled across this in the clearance section of Nordstrom Rack, there was no going back. I don't have many shiny polishes, and for $3.75 there was no way I was going to pass it up. I mainly wear neutrals, but this could make for some fun holiday manicures.
M Missoni sunglasses (unavailable, similar here): originally $205, paid $29.40 (Nordstrom Rack clearance)
Do I already own three pairs of high-end sunglasses? Yes. Did I need another pair? Absolutely not. Did I buy another pair? Duh. In my defense, these are big shaped pair I don't have anything like already, and they're lighter tinted, meaning I can actually drive in them. And I feel like a celebrity when I wear them. Or a bug. Maybe an alien. Worth it.
I also totally accidentally skipped October's budget, but essentially the only thing I bought was a pair of tall boots and twelve loofahs to create a poodle Halloween costume. So, exciting stuff.
November Retail Value: $269.50
