A Buyer's Archive | March '17Thursday, March 30, 2017
After a frugal February I expected to make quite a few purchases this month and I was right. I kinda went a little overboard with my spending.
Maxi skirt | pre loved via ebay | £0.99
I can imagine wearing this, with the hem skimming the sand of a far away beach. It'll probably skim no more than the streets of mid Suffolk this year, perhaps the pebbly beach of Felixstowe, but I can live in hope! It needs mending (the seller didn't mention a rip), and probably taking up and it's super long, but I'm looking forward to wearing it.
New Look heart shirt | £4.00 | F&F floral top | £3.00 | local charity shop
Looking ahead to my capsule wardrobe change over I wanted to add a few prints for spring. A little rummage in my local charity shop offered up these two tops. I love the little hearts!
New Look Shirt dress | pre loved via ebay | £6.50
I have a black shirt dress that I love, it's easy to wear so when I spied this floral version on ebay I couldn't resist - it's perfect for spring.
T-shirt £4.00 | Dress £24.99 | Dress £9.00 | all New Look
New Look had a sale, what was I supposed to do?
ASOS boyfriend jeans | pre loved via ebay | £9.99
Too much of a bargain to pass up, they still had the tags on (originally £30.00). The seller purchased them last year but had never worn them.
The prospect of warmer weather clearly sent me into a bit of a buying frenzy!
In March last year I spent £78.19.
T-shirt Bras | New Look via ASOS | £7.99
Standard stuff, worn a lot. Not much else to say.
Skirt | clothes swap | Free!
I love this skirt. After altering it I wore it a lot in the spring.
Long cardigan | H&M | £14.99
Worn once or twice but I went off it after a short while. I'm going to try it in my spring capsule and if it doesn't get worn it'll be popped in the charity bag.
New Look Sunglasses | New Look via ASOS | £12.99
Worn a lot, and will be again when the sun comes out.
Bras | Next | £20.00
I wore the black one once but soon realised that it wasn't a good or comfortable fit. They both went to the charity shop.
Dorothy Perkins dress | £0.99 and New Look dress | £1.24 | both via ebay
Neither of these stayed in my possession for very long. The one on the left didn't fit well. The other was rather more colourful than the ebay photo led me to believe, both were given to charity within days.
Black heels | New Look | £19.99
Thankfully these are much more comfortable than the ones I purchased earlier in the year. I've only worn them an few times but they're comfortable and a good staple to have.
Some good purchases last year in the New Look bras, sunglasses, and heels. The clothes swap skirt was definitely a winner. But once again I feel I wasted money. I'm hoping that this won't be such a common theme when I look back at this year's purchases next year.
Total for March: £62.47
Total so far for 2017: £118.45
Total at this time last year: £182.68
