February budget: Accessories central

Ok, so this is too late to even be a Fiscal Fridays post, but I decided to take a break from my note-compiling and story-writing to cobble together my February Budgeting Bloggers post. At first glance, it might look like I was under my $100 budget, but I wound up having to re-appropriate a bit of my February clothing budget to pay for other things. So really, I broke even. Hey, I'll take it.

feb budget

1. Almay Intense I-Color Bold Nudes Eyeshadow (for hazel eyes) - appx. $6, CVS
2. Sephora 8 HR Mattifying Compact Foundation - $22, Sephora
3. polka dot ties - $7, The Limited (clearance)
4. assorted bracelets - $7, Target (clearance)
5. gold necklace - $15, The Limited (with 40% off coupon)
6. Maybelline Mega Plush Volum Express mascara - appx. $6, Target
7. studded leopard print flats (seen here) - $20, Target ||exact||

So in all, my clothing/makeup purchases came to about $83. Not bad! How did you guys do on your clothing budgets, if you have one? (Also, you can check out more budget-savvy bloggers over at Franziska's link-up!


  1. For the first time in months I was successful in sticking to my clothing budget! I usually reserve $100 also, and I think I spent $75. And it was on a new bathing suit. Can you tell I want summer?
    Next month I'm using my entire budget to buy the perfect classic trench, though :) A purchase I've been dreaming of making for 3 years now. I think it's about time.

  2. Fun buys! I really like the necklace and the flats. Oh and the polka dot tights! Good job on the budget, too!

  3. You did so great this month. I think the shoes are my favorite. I think even is much better than excessively over :(
