As with every Friday on this site, I’d like to continue with another fun and fluffy post here today. To help give me an idea on all your fashionable (and frugal?) tastes in apparel! ;) And hopefully you’re already dressed and at work already too, so you can’t get re-changed to make your numbers look better! Haha… bet you didn’t think you were gonna get quizzed on that this morning?
Today’s game is real simple – all you have to do is list out what you’re wearing, how much it cost, and where you got it from. Or any combination you want, really – the point of it all is to see just how much we differ here on the site. There are no right or wrong answers as we all prioritize our spending differently – that’s a-okay!! If you happen to be a clothing whore, that’s fine – I’m sure you don’t spend in other areas like some of us others do (*ahem* GoDaddy) ;)
Okay, I’ll go first as always… here’s how much my entire outfit costs today:
- Hoodie: $20 no-name brand @ T.J. Maxx
- T-shirt: $15 no-name brand @ T.J. Maxx
- Jeans: $20 Express brand @ Rugged Wearhouse (one of the best stores ever!)
- Belt: $5 Volcom @ Rugged Wearhouse
- Socks: $3 Puma @ T.J. Maxx
- Boxers: $5 @ Old Navy
- Shoes: $20 Adidas @ Rugged Wearhouse
- Ring: $15 @ T.J. Maxx
- Earrings: $400 1 ct total (1/2 ct in each ear, down from $800) @ Kohl’s
So $88 total w/out the bling, and $503 WITH it ;) Imagine if I got the rocks outside of Kohl’s too? You could probably tack on another $1,000 alone w/ those bad boys, haha… and I’m not wearing my wedding band either (only when I leave the house), so that saves me another $500 to the totals as well. But as you can see, I’m a big fan of the man jewelry!
Your turn. How much money are YOU wearing today with that outfit you’re currently rockin’? Feel free to list as much or as little as you want – whatever you’re comfortable with. I’m just curious to see how much you ladies have been ponying up for those shoes lately ;)
