I knew going in to September that I would need to be more careful with this month’s shopping budget. As you may have gleaned, I don’t have a job yet. I like to think I’m handling the uncertainty pretty well – I know everything will work out eventually, but it would be nice to know HOW and WHEN. Normally I allow myself to spend any money I make through my blog on clothes, but this month my goal is to save it and use it for “real” thing. Like “bills.”

So what did your favorite blonde unemployed Hoosier lawyer, blogger, and self-proclaimed shopaholic do to quench her shameful need to have new crap all the time? She…I mean I…finally signed up for Le Tote! If you’re not familiar, I’ll give you the short version: It’s like Netflix for clothes. No, you can’t log in through your Wii and stream clothes into your closet (although that would be AMAZING…like Star Trek meets Clueless). I mean the old-school Netflix where you had DVDs shipped to you and you could keep them as long as you wanted and switch them out an unlimited number of times. That’s what you do with Le Tote – add a bunch of stuff you like to your “closet,” pay $50 a month (I paid $25 for this month because I ordered during a Labor Day promo), and receive 5 things at a time. Keep ’em for a while, or wear them and send them right back for more! You don’t have to wash them…that would be a dealbreaker, ladies.

The best slash most dangerous part is that you can purchase stuff you really like. I absolutely love this top I got in my first tote, but I’m going to be a good girl and send it back. (But I already added it back to my Le Tote “closet” so I can get it again one day!)

This isn’t a sponsored post or anything, but I thought some of you might be interested in Le Tote and maybe hadn’t heard of it yet. Well, now you have. If you do decide to try out Le Tote, I would greatly appreciate it if you sign up via my referral link so I can get a free month of service! (You’ll then be able to refer your own friends for a credit, too. It’s not some fancy blogger perk.)

Today I’m en route to Florida for the holiday, and I’ll take a couple days off from blogging to enjoy Christmas in EPCOT. It’ll be my first time so I’m pretty excited. You can follow me on Instagram here to see all my adventures along the way!

For now, I’ll leave you with this outfit from a recent movie date. Pretty sexy date look, right? Showing ankles and everything. A hundred years ago I would have been quite the hussy. Oh, and in case you’re wondering, we saw Catching Fire. I’m one of the dozen people in the country who hasn’t read the books, but the movie was still good! Except there was one thing that bugged me. With all the crazy shit going on in her life, she could not POSSIBLY have time to put her hair in that fancy braid every day. Seriously.

Have a very merry Christmas, everyone! If you don’t celebrate Christmas, then just have a fantastic Wednesday.
