1. Romeo and Juliet Couture plaid chiffon blouse, $15
Don’t browse online when you’re bored. Yeah, right. Well, if you MUST, then go to the 15dollarstore, because you can’t do too much damage. I don’t regret this purchase one bit.
Meijer (it’s kind of like a Super Walmart or Fred Meyer):
2. Massini purse, $30
I amazed Beefy by snagging this purse off the rack as we walked by, on the way to find suspenders. I hardly slowed at all.
I certainly didn’t need another purse, but who couldn’t use a big, black purse? This one fits my giant SLR camera, which is important right now since the lil’ golden PowerShot is broken.
3. Adriana Papell sequin jacket, $41.70
I bought this super-discounted jacket to give my velvet dress a new look. Olive-colored sequins are the perfect mix of edgy and stuffy. Expect to see this topping all my formal and semi-formal attire.
4. Jack BB Dakota Achava skirt, $19.99
One of the perils of reading so many fashion blogs is the development of an urgent need for an item. I was happily browsing blogs when I suddenly felt my life would not be complete without a high-waisted chambray skirt with an exposed zipper and pockets. Thankfully, I found one on sale.
I had spent my budget by the end of May, but couldn’t resist a few deals while thrifting on Memorial Day.
Village Discount Outlet
5. The Limited Blazer, $2.40
6. Starfish belt, $.50
7. Red snakeskin belt, $1.49
Total was $111.08. Not too shabby for a month that included a special event and a holiday.
