Sterling's post about Suntiger's # Budget Shopping Challenge reminded that it's the end of the month and time to fess up. I decided to limit my purchases to 35 excluding underwear but with the condition I also donate the same number of items that I buy. In January I added 4 items to my wardrobe.

NAVY LEITH Grandfather cardigan: It's very lightweight and perfect for home wear. So far I've been wearing it with graphic tees and striped sweaters. And it's blue which is my color of the year.
BLACK Earth ORIGINS slippers: Another awesome purchase. These are really comfy slippers.
GRAY GUDRUN Sjoden dress: I love the similar dress I got from this company two years ago. It has 3/4 sleeves and is more of a tunic dress and this is more of a winter version with longer length and sleeves. The organic cotton material is super easy care and great for travel. It arrived yesterday and I plan to check out the fit today.
BLUE COS jersey sweatshirt: It has yet to arrive, so no review.

My Donation Box got four items: Two hardly worn, ill fitting, and uncomfortable wide leg jeans, one from JCrew and the other from GAP. a pair of chocolate brown Bjorn slides worn only in the house, and my favorite black knit jacket which I disregarded the instructions and washed instead of dry-cleaning and shrunk it a bit.

Thanks to Suntiger for starting this new challenge. And as always, comments, suggestions, and whatever are welcome.

ETA: The Gudrun dress is a keeper and I added photos of it below.
