A Buyer's Archive | November 2016Tuesday, November 29, 2016
This year I'm joining A Buyer's Archive with Elise, to keep track of my spending on clothes and accessories.
I placed an ASOS order. I didn't mean to. I just sort of slipped and fell.
I popped onto the site to buy a Christmas present (and I did) but instead of buying it and leaving, I had a nosy through all of the new in items, and then looked at my saved items. Suddenly I had a trolley full of things that, oops, I just ... ordered.
They make it too easy.
My order turned up the next day, I decided that the present was perfect for the recipient, I tried everything on, and then returned almost all of it.
I kept two items, a grey t-shirt £17.00. And exactly the same t-shirt in a pale neon orange £7.00. They're baggy, with a peplum style front and a dipped hem at the back. The grey one has been worn a few times already for nights out, the orange one put away for spring.
A few weeks later, whilst having a quick nosy around a few charity shops for some wool, I found a neckerchief for £1.99 that rather took my fancy. I haven't worn one before, on account of feeling like an air hostess every time I tried, but fancied the challenge of making it work. As it turns out it's not actually that hard.
Total for November: £25.99
Overall total for 2016: £720.59
Which leaves me with a budget of £24.41 to hit my target of £745 total spend for the year.
