During Christmas, I did my yearly overhaul and audit.
I relieved myself of 5 pieces of clothing, and bought 17, plus one was a present.
I relieved myself of 1 accessory and bought 22 in return. 20 of those being Caboodles and Sassabys.
I managed to buy 52 pieces of costume jewellery and 4 real pieces making it 12 bracelets, 3 necklaces, 9 earrings, and 28 rings.
Most of it you saw last year, but these are the four pieces of clothing I bought over the holiday period and I’ve already worn one.
MILLERS Sailing top for $20, and a leaf kaftan top for $20.
From two different op shops I bought this rosy red velvet kimono for $4.50, and the rainbow top for $5.60. Strangely, looking at them now, I don’t really like them and maybe they were just impulse buys. Who knows, they may last in my wardrobe for the year.
From a website called Depop I bought the top left earrings for $40. From eBay came everything else. The middle top earrings were $6.33, the purple gemstone ring was $37.95
The left bottom necklace was $48.95, the middle necklace only $19.69, and the bracelet was $41.95.
Next comes the real pieces. Well, I hope they are. They’re supposed to be sterling silver, so we’ll soon see whether they hold up to wear and tear.
I bought these four gorgeous rings on eBay. The green crown was $5.58, the twin heart was $7.23, the multi coloured gorgeousness was $7.37 and the two blue was $5.58.
Now, two reasons why I bought the crown, was it has emeralds, and is a crown, so it goes with my name, and because it also matches a birthday stone set mum bought me when I was 18.
I bought the blue/pink hearts and the two stone blue to wear with the already luscious twin heart ring I’ve had for decades. I do love matching my jewels.
So that’s the latest clothing and jewellery hauls. I have a lot of business expenses so am not buying too much at the moment, but who knows, I might slip one or two things in in the next few months.
