Growing up in Wlliamsburg, Brooklyn (before it was today's Williamsburg, Brooklyn) I could only dream of going to Paris. Well guess what. Dreams do come true. Late last year we went to Paris for our anniversary and although it rained the whole time we were there it was such an amazing experience. We did manage to get a few hours of sun when we first got there but that was about it. It was still everything I dreamed off and more. Our first day we spent getting to know the city. Our first stop was the Notre Dame followed by lots and lots of walking. We also had a chance to visit the Lourve which was amazing. It is true what they say. You can spend a whole week in just the Lourve alone. Where have you always dreamed of going?
I made it through the month of February under budget and with just 1 pair of shoes purchased. I almost made it through without any shoes however I stumbled upon a great deal on a pair of silver strappy sandals for the spring/summer so I couldn't pass up the deal.
Apparently the month of February is a great time a of year to buy pajamas and unmentionables. That is where most of my budget went this month. Because I am not interested in sharing about my undergarments I am just going to share how much I spent and leave it at that. I debated whether undergarments should even be included as part of my sartorial budget but because I am trying to spend less overall I decided to include it.
I started the month with 303.17 which is a combination of leftover from last month and my monthly $100 sartorial allowance. I ended up spending 206.73. Here is how I spent my money.
I said I wouldn't go into specifics about what kind of undies I bought however I can tell you about my fave pj's ever from Soma Intimates. I went to their outlet at the Jersey Shore a few weeks back and was able to find some gems for about 70% off retail . I ended up getting 5 sets of pjs plus some other stuff for a grand total of 102.04. I didn't crunch the numbers to figure out how much everything would have cost but I am average a savings of 70% so you do the math.
My favorite score of the month is these Strappy Louboutins. (The actual pair I bought are in a lighter silver).
I found them at a consignment shop in barely worn condition for $99. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT. They are a style from several years back however they are exactly what I was looking for in a summer sandal. You can find a similar pair here at yoogis closet in a darker silver.
So here are the numbers for this month:
4 sets of pj's
1 pair of shoes
$206.73 total spent
$96.44 What I will have to roll over to the month of March
