Okay, I have a pretty big confession with this outfit post. I totally stole the whole idea for the outfit from a friend. She wore this once, head to toe, and I have been obsessed with the outfit ever since. I’ve tried to recreate a few times but couldn’t find the right pieces. This post is in partnership with thredUP, and I just about fell off my chair when I found the exact dress that my friend had. It was from about ten years ago from J. Crew, and I was so thrilled to find it that I copied the outfit head to toe.
That’s one of my favorite parts about thredUP. Not only are you making a good choice to purchase second-hand items, you have the opportunity to find gems that you may have missed when they first came out and get them for so much less! It’s the largest online thrift store, with over 15,000 items added every day and they carry all your favorite brands for up to 90% off. From personal experience, I can say that I get overwhelmed in thrift stores, so I love being able to sort for brands, colors, and sizes with ease on thredUP.
This is my fifth order from thredUP, and they always arrive so beautifully packaged!
Here’s the breakdown of the savings for the outfit:
J. Crew Jacket | Retails for $148, purchased for $39.99
J. Crew Dress | Retails for $298, purchased for $64.99
J. Crew Mary Jane Shoes | Retails for $158, purchased for $45.99
J. McLaughlin Clutch | Retails for $135, purchased for $64.99
So my total purchase came out to $215.96, but it would have been $739. I saved $523! That’s huge!
As excited as I was for the dress to arrive, the shoes ended up being my favorite part. Hellllllllo glitter. I will definitely be wearing these frequently this holiday season.
