Hi All

It is the last day of September so I thought I would update my progress.

My goal was 30 or under purchases for the year.
I have made 29 additions so the rest of the year will be lean. In September I added four pieces - three from the Dress for Success Sale, and a new midi dress. The new purchases are in bold below.

A couple of weeks ago I asked feedback about a tee and blazer. In the end I returned both and exchanged for the pink midi below. The blazer was not exciting me and I wanted to be thrilled. A bit of a wildcard but a new midi was on my list....

Here are my additions. All are listed below and are in the finds except for the wrap dress.Footwear
