Thrift

A few posts ago I mentioned that I was a new user of the shopping app Depop, but I have redirected my allegiance to Poshmark, which is quite similar but a bit more sophisticated in my opinion. I have sold three items from my “closet” during its first month, and I am really enjoying packaging my clothes and sending them off to new homes.

Buuuuuuut I have also been shopping on the app. I justify my purchases by reminding myself that these are great deals and I am earning my money back whenever I make a sale. The Zara Trafaluc dress in these photos was a total steal for only $13. I also bought a new pair of leather Aldo flats for $20. I mean c’mon. I feel like I am just picking things out of people’s closets and leaving a tip.

Click here if you want to check out my closet. Also, be sure to follow me on Instagram to know when I post a new item, and to like, be friends and stuff. I always follow back.

I make sure to only post and sell my nicest, gently worn items, and have received 5 stars and positive reviews on all my purchases. I highly recommend selling your own items on the app if you would like to earn back some cash on clothes you don’t wear anymore. It’s such a great way to clean out your closet and make room for fall clothes.

Deuces.

A storm is settling in, so I tied my beloved jean jacket around my waist to add visual interest and texture to my skirt, and to act as a butt shield. No exposed underwear for me today.

If you’re someone who likes skirts or dresses with pockets, then I highly recommend a thin jacket tied around your waist this spring and summer. The pockets on my jacket hung perfectly on my side, and helped hold my guitar pick and remote inbetween shooting photos. It was a convenience I didn’t expect to have. Aw yeah, functional style.

Happy Mother’s Day!
