- Fleece lined tights: $7 + tax = $8
- Dress from Goodwill: $8 - 20% discount + tax = $7
Fleece lined tights are my absolute FAVORITE. They're so cozy and warm without adding any bulk, and I highly recommend them for the winter-time when it's too cold for normal tights. I already have two pairs in black that I wore all last winter, so when I found them in grey the other day, I had to pick them up. I get the Legale brand from Nordstrom Rack, and they have both plush lined leggings and tights, in black, grey, and brown for $7/pair.
The dress on the other hand, I totally bought it on a whim the other day when I stopped by Goodwill. I can't tell you how long I've been wanting to go to Goodwill to browse, but it's almost impossible with a baby and a toddler... mostly because I wouldn't want them touching everything so I would have to go on a day when I didn't have either kid. I jumped at the chance one day after I dropped my preschooler off and my husband had the baby, and found this dress. I didn't want to waste my rare alone/Goodwill time by going home empty handed, so I brought it home. Not entirely sure if I need it or not, but I have a week (now only a few days) left to decide if I want to return it.
In addition to these two things, I did buy a Kate Spade wallet (to replace my Coach wristlet... yes, I'm stuck in 2005) and a leather motorcycle jacket this month, but they are my anniversary (August) and birthday (November) presents from my husband, so they won't be going on the budget.

*11/5 Update: I decided I didn't really need the dress. It's a bit too youthful with the bubble hem and short length. Plus, I wouldn't be able to wear it for awhile due to nursing/pumping, so I returned it over the weekend. Updated October total is $8
