I am not yet in the swing of this blogging in the new year thing, yet. Although, to be honest, I’m glad it’s a new year. I’m ready to move on from last year.
2014 was awesome. But also sucked. So many ups and downs, there was a lot of personal stuff and events, which is why I am crossing my fingers for this year. I know there is a lot of stuff that we don’t blog about, so if you had some rough parts of the year, I am there with you. But I hope we can move on, and I send lots of good thoughts everyone’s way for the new year.
So, I’ve been trying to stay frugal throughout the quadrabillion sales going on, and I have been successful for the most part.
Actually, I was so overwhelmed by choices, that I hardly bought anything.
I found some destroyed denim which I had been looking for for a while, during American Eagle’s sale.
These turned out to be just what I wanted – they’ve got holes in just the knees, and they are stretchy and soft. And they were only 30 bucks. They are great for the weekend when I can dress them up a little.
I also tried on a few other pairs, but they were a little too destroyed for me.
I got another pair of their sky high jeggings, and they are good so far. I found that the sizes vary a lot between the different styles and materials, so I have one size in the destroyed denim style, but I ended up switching sizes in the other jegging, because there was too much extra material.
My work uniform a variation of below: pants (jeggings, jeans, etc) and tops / layers. I’m even wearing my work badge. I’ll give you a hint and tell you that in my badge picture I had my eyebrows waxed that day, and it’s a constant reminder of why I don’t get my eyebrows waxed anymore.
The only thing I purchased besides the jeans was a pair of boots on sale at Modcloth. They have my favorite selection of vegan boots, and they were on sale.
I’ve been looking for a pair of black boots, and these look like over-the-knee. I haven’t gotten them yet, so I’m not sure about the fit.
Did you find any after Christmas sales?
Did you stick to your budget?
