Cost Per Wear

I wore this outfit last night for one of my best friend's birthday dinner. I have also worn this houndstooth jacket two other times since I picked it up on Black Friday. I was on the fence about it at first, but so happy that I talked myself into it. It has definitely surpassed the whole cost per wear challenge.

Forever 21 Houndstooth Jacket - sold out (similar here and here) // Old Navy Sweater sold out (black & cobalt still available & similar version here) // Forever 21 Faux Leather Pants (similar here and here) // Fergalicios Boots // Sam Moon Bag (similar here) // Sam Moon Scarf (similar here) // Michael Kors Watch via Jeweler's Wife // Cathryn Ann Designs Tassel Bracelets c/o // Forever 21 Bangle (similar here)

SHOP THE LOOK

Actually everything I am wearing today has gotten lots of attention. This sweater from Old Navy has been thrown on umpteen times since it came home with me (I own the blue one too). I have layered it with numerous coats, blazers and worn it over plaid oxfords. The faux leather half pants/half leggings have made there rounds lately and even got to see Beyonce on stage Monday night. I wish Forever 21 still had them available because I would demand all of you to snag a pair. I did find some great options linked above. Moving onto my Fergalicous boots. I love typing that word....it makes my laugh a little, but they were a find that I am mighty proud of.

I am starting to get a little better at actually wearing things in my closet more than twice. I think it has something to do with Labor Day, Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping remorse. When mid December rolls round I am actually focusing on buying things for people other than myself and in full gift giving mode. For instance, I knocked out 75% of my Christmas shopping yesterday, hit about seven stores, one being Target, and did not buy one single thing for myself. Swear! Also, I am sure we will embrace spring-like weather in Texas in about two months, so my shopping funds are in slight hibernation and resting up for the upcoming season.

I hope everyone has a great weekend full of holiday treats, festivities, good company and sassy, sparkly dresses!

Old Navy has the most amazing sweaters this season! I love this one you have on! I missed it on their web site somehow;) They are having a big sale today so I may stop by and get that black one! I think I am going on a shopping ban in Jan. I may need some therapy but I cant fit any more clothes into my kid's closet!! Time to do a spring cleaning so I can shop again! Have a great weekend! Cute as always! I mentioned you on my blog today too:) Susan

I love that coat. I am also trying to get more wear out of the current contents of my closet but it's so hard not to buy. I love new, shiny things.

it's definitely all about cost per wear! If I wear it often I won't feel bad about splurging on something a little more expensive or higher quality! xo

I love the idea of the cost per wear challenge! There are so many things that I buy that get one wear and then get forgotten about (and then a few that I wear over and over, and over again)! I love the jacket, it looks great on you!

The coat looks awesome on you, but I wouldnt be one to get it because, I know I wouldnt wear it often enough. it gets so cold so fast here, I wouldnt have enough days to wear a three fourth sleeve coat :(.
