May 2013 was a pretty good shopping month! Here's the rundown:
- Old Navy boyfriend cardigan coral: $8 - a coral cardigan seemed like a brilliant choice, but something about this one just wasn't quite right. I think the color was a bit different than my coral preference, and it showed wrinkles really bad. I just don't love most of the ways I wore it. And I don't remember getting rid of it, but I can't find it anywhere, so I must have thrown it in the donate pile at some point!
- Target Scarf: $3 - I had this on my Christmas list, but then it was missing from all stores, so I was happy when I found it several months later for $3. But I already had this scarf, which is kind of similar, so I probably wear them both about half as much as I would otherwise. So, I probably should have skipped the Target scarf. But it was $3, and I've worn it more than that, so it is at least a medium.
As I do these rewind posts, I'm really surprised at what things end up in the Good category. For example, I would have guessed that the confetti tee would be a favorite, because I really loved it when I bought it. But that F21 scarf - I actually bought as a gift for someone, before realizing that I had never seen this person wear purple, orange, or scarves, and decided to buy them something else, and then realized F21's return policy was store credit only, and decided to keep it for myself. And then I've really loved it. And I would have absolutely expected the coral cardigan to be a favorite, but it wasn't. So I don't necessarily know how to make great decisions at the time of purchase! But I still think it's fun to look back.
