#AlmostPoshStyleCost : April

April 29, 2016

It seems like only yesterday I was writing up the March round-up for the #AlmostPoshStyleCost project and here I am again, totting up April's balance already.

After March's considerable aquisition program, I steadied myself for April in preparation for the holiday I have booked in May which will include potential proximity to DFO and the like. However I did pick up a few major items. Here's what I snared:

I was given a $50 ASOS voucher as payment for a DJ gig so I rubbed my hands together, hit up the ASOS mobile app during a 15% off sale and snared this Fashion Union 2-in-1 top for $48 of those free dollars because I'd been wanting to do this look for ages.

You might have seen this picture on my Insta or FB:

Yeah, that's right. I had to wash it because I got make-up on the collar when trying it on, only to discover that the faux white shirt under the jumper - the one I bought because I don't iron and I wanted to create the look of a shirt under a jumper - needed to be ironed.

The IRONy.

Anyway, here it is on when it's not actually dirty or being washed or needing ironing.

I went along to the Katies VIP Shopping Night as most of you know, and picked up a few things that were specially discounted PLUS a free stripy top gift with purchase worth $19.95!

Then I had that awesome Shopper's Premonition experience with the striped tunic. I was so excited, I did a Facebook Live Streaming video.

Yeah, the delivery needs work as does the camera angle but it's fun to try something different. Here's the static pose which is less sackular.
I also picked up an ASOS midi skirt at Savers this week for a mere $7.
So it's a small wrap up this month - I like to think quality over quantity! And since I just forked out for my ProBlogger ticket, it's probably going to stay pretty lean over the rest of the year.

In terms of accessories, all I've acquired is that necklace in my Katies goodie bag. I do like it but it didn't sit nicely with my bust, so I've gifted it to my Mum.
