Here's what I bought this month:


December 2014 Purchases by gracenote30 featuring side zipper boots This month was a combination of thrifting, spending birthday money, and taking advantage of Christmas deals! I have photos of about half of my items. Black Leggings: $5.00 - I bought these as a Black Friday or Cyber Monday deal, and I was not impressed at all with the quality. They pilled up right away. They were from a "deal" site and were Steve Madden brand, but I am not thrilled with them. Any recommendations for nice leggings? Target Midi Skirt: $14.93 Payl…
