1. Bold Curve Skinny Jeans in Endless Night, $49.99
I’m still looking for my skinny jeans holy grail. I want a medium rise. Real pockets and fly. No sagging. No muffin top. These are close, but no cigar.
I chose the Levi’s Bold Curve style to accommodate my curvy rear and thighs. I like how they look immediately after I put them on, but, as you can see from these pictures taken after a day of wear, they sag in the thighs and knees after a few hours, giving me more of the jodhpur than a “skinny” look. Maybe I should have chosen a different curve?
Any recommendations? Erin of Reality Chic recently recommended Madewell Skinny Skinny Jeans, but I’m not built anything like Erin.

2. White House Black Market blazer, $2.50
This doesn’t button if I have air in my lungs, but, for $2.50, I’ll wear it open.
3. Oversized Colorblock Handbag, $50.60.
Londyn has tons of cute stuff from Go Jane, but my first purchase was prompted by Indiana Adams. She bought this bag and I had to have it too. It’s a little pricy for a fake leather bag, but I love the colors and style. I carried it nonstop for a few days and it’s going in my October 31-for-31 capsule.
September total: $103.09
Total spending for the year: $1077.83.
In October, I’m taking another business trip to LA and staying within walking distance of a Zara! Expect me to buy something there. But not too much….I only have $122.17 left to spend this year.
