March Fashion Budget

March 2013 Budget

March 2013 Budget by natylite78 featuring a red jacket

I continued my trend of adding to my work wardrobe this month. Honestly, I won't know how much I spent till I finish writing this post. Not very fiscally responsible, right? Yikes.

1. Tahari skirt suit - $25.00 via eBay - I adore this suit. It has a fun pleat at the bottom of the skirt. Tahari fits like a dream too!

2. Charter Club Shirt Dress - $58.00 via Macy's. This is the first time I have tried a dress from Charter Club. I loved J. McLaughlin shirt dresses, but they are not very budget friendly (average $200). This one has a similar feel and the print is classic.

3. Green shirt dress with white chain link - $40.00 via Stein Mart. Stein Mart is very hit or miss for me. I've seen some pretty awful clothes there. However, this green dress was a diamond among them all.

4. Merona Linen Cropped Jacket - $30 via Target. I had a $5 off coupon on any Merona purchase. I found this darling little jacket and have already worn it to work. It pairs well with navy and luckily, I own a lot of navy! I'm hoping this will get a lot of wear during Spring and Summer.

Grand Total: $153.

Yikes, that's a bit much! Going back to work is costing me money! Good thing I'm planning to sell some of my clothes to make up for this spendy month :)


  1. Those dresses are so pretty! You can also use them as skirts by wearing a sweater or fitted top over them.

  2. I think you got some really great pieces that you will be able to wear and mix in your wardrobe for a long time. I love that green dress! I agree, SteinMart is very hit or miss for me as well.

  3. I love those pretty dresses! I think they'll be easy to wear all year round, which is awesome. Good finds!

  4. you got a LOT for your $$$! Love the Charter Club dress- that tunic I wore last summer that you asked about- that was charter club!

    I need to go look at shirtdresses. :)
