FRUGAL FALL HAUL: Everything Under $12!

I have been posting SO MANY hauls lately! I posted a Fall Haul a month ago when my mom was in town and we did some shopping, and I posted another when I received my Influenster vox box! I like to think of myself as a minimalist and I am so aware of my shopping, but with that being said, I have a few things to share with you! Each individual item was less than $12 and was on sale! 


Dress - Short LE Plum
This dress was originally priced as $17.90, but I got it on sale for $7! On the tag, it says that the color is "plum", but I like to think that this dress is more on the red side of the spectrum and that it's a "wine" color. Anyway, I like how the fabric is knit, so it's warm enough to wear if it's slightly chilly, but isn't too suffocating. It was on the sale rack, so I can't link it for you, but if you find it, definitely try it on because it is super flattering! 

Knit Top/LSLV Indigo

Despite spending the majority of the year in a place that experiences cold weather, I don't have very many "warm" clothes. I went shopping with one of my friends, and I kept saying that I hated how warm they keep the school buildings because you have to layer so you don't freeze outside and boil inside. This sweatshirt was originally $22.90, but I got it for $11. It's a typical navy sweatshirt, but has a really nice, warm, lining. It is a boxy style, which I love because it is universally flattering and falls super nicely. 

Forever 21 Leggings and Aeropostale Lace Bralette

Forever 21 had a huge display of their $3.90 leggings, and I actually needed another pair of gray leggings, so it seemed like a good time to get them! They also had a really cute pair of plum colored leggings that I might go back for! 
Aeropostale is closing, so everything in the store was half off! I am obsessed with bralettes, and Aero has some of my favorites, so I decided to pick one up! This doesn't fit perfectly because the band is slightly too loose and the length of the lace part is slightly short, but it looked so cute and I knew that I would wear it (because I'm very anti-bra) so I bought it for $8. 

RUE 21

Pumpkin Pie Candle
Rue 21 had a sale on their three wick candles, where if you buy one, you can get a second for $1. My friend and I split the deal, each got one candle, and paid $7. I really like the pumpkin pie one because it smells spicy and like fall without getting too heavy. My friend got the cinnamon sugar one and that smelled super good too! 

Overall, I spent less than $40 and got a bunch of things that I will be using this season and for years to come. My personal shopping philosophy is to divide the cost of an item by the number of times I wear it to get a theoretical cost/wear. I definitely think that by looking at my haul like that, it was very successful because these are all things I will wear over and over and over again.
Let me know if you've bought anything recently! And also let me know what other types of content you'd like to see for fall and winter!


  1. I love the plum dress! The cut is really pretty and it looks really nice on you!
