If you recall this post, leopard has got me wrapped around its little finger. So when Bramalea City Centre gave me the opportunity to go on a little shopping spree, I couldn't possibly resist not to add another leopard piece in my closet. Restricting myself within a budget when I am shopping is well non existent for me. I am a big spender, and I follow Carrie Bradshaw philosophy. I like my money where I can see it. Hanging in my closet. If I see it and I like it, I will buy it. Of course, this is not a realistic way to go about shopping all the time so today, I am sharing with you what my $200 shopping budget got me.

The whole outfit cost me under $170 and I had money left over. Here's the breakdown:
H&M Scarf: $29.99
Forever21 Purse: $39.99
Forever 21 Jeans: $10.90
Aldo Flats: $43.99
H&M Necklace: $17.99
Charming Charlie Rings & Bracelet: $27.10 = Grand total $169.96

If you are on a budget you have to be a smart shopper. Shopping for an outfit while on a budget you have to remember to shop items that are versatile and items that will make the cut each time new trends come about. This is why, for my shopping spree, I chose items that are a must in the closet. Skinny jeans, blanket scarf, classy and useful handbag, black flats, must have accessories that transform every outfit from blah to fab. 

Thank you Bramalea City Centre for this outfit!
