1. Allen B striped jacket, $40.60
I'm curious as to how a style "craving" begins. I can't pinpoint the moment when I began hungering for a striped jacket, but it soon became a minor obsession. It certainly didn't help that both Kimberly and Angie published images and shopping information for a few versions. I found the perfect price and style at JC Penney, but was hesitant to purchase online because I wasn't familiar with the line's sizing. Beefy was a real stand-up guy and drove me to two JC Penney stores (in two states) to search for the magic jacket. When I found it, and it fit, I was totally satiated.
2. Earrings, $10
I've been looking for some large, gold, blingy earrings to complete certain outfits. These look great, but are really heavy.
3. Betsey Johnson sunglasses, $14.99
I'm breaking out of my bug-eyed sunnies rut. This style is sort of a cross between a wayfarer and a cateye.
4. Aerosoles nude wedge sandals, $29.99 (not pictured)
These comfy sandals have a higher heel than I was looking for, but promise to be very comfortable. I hope to debut them in April and wear them all summer.
March’s total: $95.58
I might blow all of April’s budget this weekend. There are a few things at Target I’m drooling over:
I’m pretty set on the bag, but I haven’t tried the clothing on. I’ll admit the jeans look much better on the rack than on the model. I hope that isn’t the case when I try them on. If so, there are plenty of other garments calling my name at Tar-jay (like the designer collection re-releases).
Total spending for the year: $291.92
Frye boots fund: $8.08. (At this rate, I’ll have enough to buy a pair of boots in about 12 years.)
