Hoping that July will be a better month....
Wow! Since shoes don't really count, you are good

I'm done for July already, I bought a really nice Belstaff white wool sweater I know I will wear for ages. It is very simple, great quality, I'm happy. Usually, if I have even a hint of a thought of returning something, I know I shouldn't buy it. Not this time
In June I've got a couple of Nina Ricci silk tops on sale and nothing else.

The only "needs" I have left on my wish list are a black coat, the nude Prada pumps, a pair of dressy black booties, and a new wallet. Not sure what my shopping plans are for July!
I love camel coats so much - the cut and style of this one is perfect. Great pick!

May was a big month for me as I celebrated a big milestone in my life so I treated myself to some big purchases that I've been wanting for a long time. You know, that imaginary list of ideal closet purchases. So, for May I went for my first RO leather jacket.

And I also found one other item on my dream list. Here it is: Attachment 2246974
Your picks are amazing - congrats on treating yourself. The bag and coats are TDF.

I almost bought nothing this month since I was in the midst of moving...but the last day of the month I was all settled and popped into Saks and J. Crew. I got this ombre pink Shoshanna dress that I'll wear to a few summer events. I also decided that when buying a dress like this, I need to make room for it in my closet. I had a five-year-old dress that I loved to pieces, but it was a white dress and it was a bit discolored and had a small coffee stain on the front that just wouldn't budge. So I gave that away and have replaced it with this dress, which I can pair with flats for a nice brunch or heels for dinner out. A versatile summer dress, it's a great replacement. I also got this pink J. Crew dress for work (80% off) and since the deal was so good I picked up this neon orange shirt - it's super soft and looks great paired with white capris. Another fun summer staple. So three things, but I said I would be doing one-ish for sure, and since one purchase is for my work wardrobe I didn't feel too bad going one over. July I definitely won't do well based on the purchases I have planned, but I'm trying to keep it as scaled down as possible! We shall see.Name:  ImageUploadedByPurseForum1373217092.127287.jpg

Haha me too. Today I bought the Celine leopard espadrilles I have been wanting since before they came out! I wish that I had gotten them sooner! My other July purchase is the Isabel Marant Etoile Ankara fluffy jacket that I posted above. July is my birthday month so I guess these are birthday presents to myself?

I thought I was going to have a zero month for July, but I ended up with a haul from Gap because I was concerned that they were phasing out my HG jeans (I needed a smaller size anyway. ). So I got:

3 pairs of jeans (HG in dark wash, medium blue cropped, striped cropped)
2 pairs of workout shorts (the comfy cotton knit kind)
1 pair of calf hair leopard flip flops (so cute with nail polish)
1 striped tank (slenderizing )
1 super soft heather gray tee shirt (flowy, like silk)

Almost everything was about half off, and I only spent about $200 for 8 items, so I don't feel bad. I was happy with the quality of everything. Each item filled a missing niche in my wardrobe.
