#ThriftyThursday 💵 WARNING ⚠️ LONG POST! obviously, I should have posted Thursday, BUT. I get asked a lot about where I find my clothes, the answer? Secondhand!! I want to look fancy, but am cheap. And also, don’t get me on my textile industry soap box.
I ♥️ snagging deals for a sliver of full price high end brands (because, honestly, who can legit spend $300 on a dress?) Here’s what I wore today and how you can snag some sweet deals for yourself.
BLACK HALO RED/FAUX LEATHER DRESS- retails for $281, paid $75 on an app called @mercari. It’s a smidge higher than what I like to pay (I try to cap it at $60) but this dress was too perfect to pass up. Mercari even allows buyers to submit offers to sellers, which means the listed price may not be what you pay in the end (this dress was listed for $100!) ANTONIO MELANI HEELS- retails for $98 at @dillards, paid $20 on an app called @poshmark. Much like Mercari, Poshmark allows bids to be submitted. These heels are a dream too. Comfortable and cute? A rare gem.
KATE SPADE WATCH- retails for $250, paid $70. Sooo... this isn’t one bought used. My hubs knew I’d been wanting a Kate Spade watch forever, but there’s no way I’d ever pay that much for one. This was my birthday present this year. @tjmaxx sells name brand watches for a fraction of retail.
