we have been budgeting lately as we make one last big push to pay off the last of our wedding bills. we are so close and i’ve had to control myself a lot this summer when it comes to shopping. i just wanted to share two moments i’m particularly proud of.
1) i’ve been obsessed with polka dots lately but i had to pass on the ag stevie polka dot ankle jeans at anthropologie (originally $179 but went on sale for $99). instead, i bought these polka dot wedges at a consignment shop for $7.
2) this dress was on sale for $20 but the zipper was broken so i talked the clerk into marking it down to $6. charlie bought me a zipper at jo-ann fabrics for about $3 and i sewed it in by hand (we plan to get a sewing machine soon!)
