As promised, today is the last day in the planning my fall wardrobe series. Last week, I identified my style and looked at my closet to decide what I need. Today I will be determining my budget and sharing where I will buy the items in my shopping list. Since I have most of the basics like black jeans, faux leather and a chambray shirt, I don’t have too much to buy.
Here are the items I would like to add to my fall wardrobe and the order I plan on buying them.
3. Determine your budget
I ranked these items in my shopping list based on priority because I like to shop slowly. I feel like when I want to buy things quickly, I start impulsively buying more than what I had planned. With this list, I can scour the internet and thrift stores to get the best deals. My budget for this wardrobe is $200, but I plan on spending much less. This fall wardrobe will also be carried out through the winter so my budget isn’t really that high.
4. Take a look at the brands mentioned on Gold Polka Dots
I’ve researched all the eco-friendly/ethically made brands to come up with my shopping list. Below are the details for each item :
White Button Down: $55 at Everlane
Grey Tee: $18 at Everlane
I listed two options for 3 because I found a great pattern at Indiesew for $10. If I get the courage to sew it myself, I will use this pattern! The second option for 3 is from the Nordstroms made in USA section that I’ve mentioned before. If you google ‘Nordstroms made in USA’ you will find a ton of clothes. I didn’t include any sweaters in this list because I plan on scouring thrift stores. There are plenty of jeans and sweaters at thrift stores, which make me confident I will find what I’m looking for for under $10.
