July 2010 Budget Recap

*NOTE:  This budget is for shopping/food/gas only, or expense that I can control fully.  I’m not including fixed expenses (rent, utilities, medical bills) because they’re fixed and honestly pretty boring to talk about.  My TOTAL spending is not reflected in this budget *

Blown Budgets:

1.  Toiletries/Cosmetics

  1. 4 pairs of falsies – $10
  2. NYX Jar Concealer in Beige – $6
  3. Tri Color Grey contacts (as worn here) (buy here) – $26

2.  Clothing

  1. Marc jacobs F/W 2008 top, Chloe skirt, Xoxo jeans from Loehmann’s Clearance center – $43
  2. F21 Lace top – $35
  3. F21 black Crochet top (as seen on Aimee Song!) – $40
  4. H&M striped shirt + studded mini dress – $40
  5. F21 studded jacket and striped dress – $57

3.  Shoes and Accessories

  1. F21 cross necklace – $5.25
  2. Jeffrey Campbell X-On wedges from Karmaloop – $50.50
  3. Alexander Wang Baby Rocco Duffle from Gilt (buy here)- $339


Overall budget:

-$315


The Verdict?

The Rocco handbag pushed me over the edge!  I would have been in the black otherwise.  Sad.

Next months plans?

  • August 7th is my 25th birthday!
  • Try to chill out with spending before Japan
