November Budget

Guys, I didn't buy any clothes this month!  Well, kind of.  Brass, one of my favorite clothing brands, launched a program called The Edit, which I decided to invest in.  It was a pretty steep price tag (600, eep!) but what's included is awesome.


The Edit is basically Stitch Fix + Marie Kondo, in a weird way. Basically, Brass is combining minimalism with a capsule wardrobe.  The Edit includes tools to clean out your closet, beautiful hangers to hold your new swag, a Skype call to figure out your closet needs and wants, and one piece a month for 6 months.  They are offering 10 pieces in the core collection, plus one new seasonal piece a month for you to choose from. Basically, style advice and 6 pieces of clothing spread out over 6 months.  While the initial outlay was high, I'm planning on not buying anything else, so the cost will get spread out.

I'm really excited about focusing on other things with my money/time, rather than clothes, especially with the holidays coming up, but I'm guessing I'll receive a few things for my birthday (Friday!) and Christmas, so those will be included next month!

PS Happy Cyber Monday!  J Crew (plus 10% back on ebates, LOFT and Ann Taylor are having amazing sales - loving this festive sweater, this classic bag, this gorgeous dress and these perfect heels

Linking up with Fran!

  2. What an awesome idea! I've been intrigued by Brass, but they don't currently ship to Canada. I'd love to hear how it works out for you! Hopefully one day they'll have international shipping.

  3. That's definitely an interesting idea. I wonder if I could move to that kind of minimalist wardrobe, where everything mixes and matches. I think I would look more put together!

  4. The Brass Edit program does sound intriguing! I've liked the one item I got at Brass (the A-Line Dress, which does look more fitted than A-Like on me because I'm on the bustier side), and have been contemplating a few other purchases, though I don't need enough of their items to make something like the Edit a good fit for me.
