A Buyer's Archive | August 2016Thursday, September 01, 2016
This year I'm joining A Buyer's Archive with Elise, to keep track of my spending on clothes and accessories.
Zara dungarees | pre loved via ebay | £13.00
After seeing my best friend rock a pair of dungarees at Latitude I decided to give them a go. I searched ebay for a pre loved pair and bought these, thinking that they were sufficiently non kids TV presenter-ish.
I wasn't sure when I first got them out of the packaging, but after an iron, a bit of a wear, and a prance around the bedroom I decided I liked them.
I swapped these into my summer capsule after discovering that the zip on my white dress had broken *sob*. They've slipped seamlessly into it's place and are actually more versatile than the dress. I don't think Andy likes them, but they are so comfy and easy to wear, and he's hardly around to see me wear them at the moment anyway! I've a feeling these will be sticking around for my autumn capsule.
Scarf | £4.00
I temporarily forgot that scarves where on my banned items list. Oops. Sadly, it's not even that practical as the open weave keeps snagging on random things. Pretty colour though.
Miss Selfridge short dungarees | pre loved via ebay | £7.21
I absolutely didn't need these but when has that ever stopped me? They don't fit quite how I expected them to, so they'll be going back on ebay (or more realistically into a charity bag because, let's face it, ebay can be a bit of a faff).
Slippers | George | £4.00
Pants (not pictured) | 3 pairs for £10.00
Total spend for August: £37.21
Total so far for 2016: £526.85
My total seems to be happily climbing up and up, so I'm hoping that I won't spend anything next month (I certainly don't need anything), but we'll see...
