Welcome to the December Fashionomics Report – and the final one in the series!
This time last year, I predicted I would spend around $1000 on clothes in 2016. But before we find out the final tally, and how accurate my estimate was, let me show you what items I bought in December …
At the Op Shop
Early in the month Miss 20 and I felt the need for an op shop fix, and lo and behold I stumbled across this lovely bright dress.
It’s been home made, and the attention to detail is just amazing! I love how it makes me feel so womanly and feminine. In fact, the hubster loves it so much he reckons I should get a heap of other frocks made with the same pattern (I think he means that *I* should make them, but as I’m only an amateur seamstress, that ain’t gonna happen!). This little gem set me back all of $4.
Shorts and Top
With only one pair of shorts (that actually fits), I felt my wardrobe would benefit from an extra pair – especially seeing as the ones I already had were denim, and really uncomfortable in hot weather.
These khaki shorts are soft and lightweight, as if the peasant top. Both are from Crossroads, and were reduced to $20 each (top originally $34.95, shorts originally $29.95).
Final Fashionomics Report: The Totals
Items bought: 3
This month’s total original ticket “value”: $68.90
I paid: $44
Total Spend for the Year: $1061.42
Seems I was pretty spot on with my personal fashionomics forecast, after all!
How much do you think/guess you would spend on fashion per year?
