May 2013 // Spending Report

May Spending
*Most of what I purchase is found secondhand, thus, the images above are similar to, but not the exact item.


Vince Camuto Satin Ruffle Heels (similar) // $25 // I scored a pair of pre-loved blush pink heels with a satin ruffle front on Poshmark.

Basic V-Neck Tanks // $20 // I usually stock up on basics once or twice a year. This time around I purchased the coral red color above, lavender, pink, and two plain white t-shirts at Wet Seal.

Sundresses (Similar: FloralZigzag // Approx. $15 total for both // I purchased two sundresses like the ones above from Poshmark as well. I always like to have them ready for summer!

GAP Utility Dress (similar) // $5 // I found an older style, yet still adorable, olive green utility dress from GAP on, of course, Poshmark!

Hudson White Jeans (similar) // $40 // Yes another Poshmark find, white Hudson jeans for a fraction of the retail price.

Black Cat Eye Sunnies (similar) // $5 // Purchased on ModDeals, but they are now out of that exact style.

Blue Floral Bauble Necklace (similar) // $5 // Yup, you guessed it, another Poshmark deal! My necklace is from the LOFT, but the one above is a dead-on twin.

Floral Headband (similar) // $2 // I adore headbands, they are so easy to wear! I added a floral one, similar to the one above, to my sundress purchase on Poshmark.

Pink Crossbody Satchel (similar) // $5 // OK, OK...I also got a pink Forever 21 bag from Poshmark. Yes, I have an addiction! The purse I purchased actually looks very similar to the Rebecca Minkoff purse above. 

TOTAL: $122

Well, my spending fast went out the door quickly. BUT I did spend quite a bit less than I did in April! WOOHOO! However, the streak must continue. How is everyone else doing with their spending habits? As you can tell, I'm ever the bargain shopper, but tend to go overboard. Being involved in the blogger world, it's so hard not to want every cute pair of earrings and shoes you see! 

In other news, I actually did purchase a Canon Rebel T3 DSLR camera and am in love with it! (I decided to leave it out of my clothing expenses here.) It's such an easy starter DSLR for a newbie like myself. I purchased it on Amazon for about $320. It's refurbished and is an older model, but works like a charm. You can look forward to better photos on my blog in the future, finally!


Today I'm linking up with Style Elixir.


  1. Wow you did such a great job! I seem to have bad luck shopping second hand. I need help LOL xo

  2. Nicely done! Now, I've been in the market for a starter DSLR...do you have any tips or advice for buying one refurbished? I love my camera now, but I'm starting to feel like I'm growing past it. I've heard amazing things about the Rebel T3! I'm a Nikon girl myself, so I don't know if I could switch :)

  3. Those were some amazing finds!! I love that necklace!


  4. Yay! You're doing so well :) I've been able to cut a little bit on my spending too. Proud of myself & you!

    Ooo Canon T3 really is a great starter DSLR. You'll love it. I'm looking forward to seeing your photos!

  5. Wow! you got all that for $122? That's a great deal! Can't wait to see you style them! They sound like such cute items!

  6. wow that is super great budget. You got a lot for the price. I wish i tried looking for the refurbished items instead of buying a brand new camera. I can't wait for your pictures.


  7. Teach me your bargain shopping ways! I'm seriously impressed with what you have. In fact I just found your blog, and don't worry, I've already scrolled all the way to the bottom reading posts haha (love what you did with the maxi skirt, by the way).

    Anyway, I'm excited to be your newest follower on bloglovin. You are so creative!


  8. Thanks for sharing your fabulous finds!

    And thanks for linking up with Style Sessions :)
