|2013 Purchases. Hey, not bad!|
I’ve been good and I’ve been bad.
Good because I’ve controlled my spending fairly well the first four months of 2013. I did buy a pair of jeans, which were badly needed to replace a pair that were starting to fall apart. I also bought mascara, though now I wish I would’ve stepped way up and bought Chanel mascara because this L’Oreal Paris Voluminous is easily the worst mascara I have ever used. It clumps, it flakes, it comes out in globs on the wand. I will never buy it again. I’m a little surprised that this is a L’Oreal product.

|Shirts by J. Crew. I think I have all I need for summer!|
As for how I’ve been bad, I broke down and bought two J. Crew shirts on sale recently, both for summer wear, one in stripes and flowers, one in navy blue linen. The linen shirt is the most comfortable button-down shirt I have put on in a long time. It’s as comfortable as a T-shirt! My other two unplanned purchases, which I wrote about in an earlier post, were the leopard clutch from Sheree of It’s Not That Deep (I love that clutch, I use it whenever I go out) and butter LONDON polish in Queen Vic, which I wore to the PUNK: Chaos to Couture exhibit since it looks so good against black.

All total, less than $100. It’s a Christmas miracle in May!
How are your New Year’s Resolutions going now that we are in the fifth month of the year?
