4x10


 
 



Topshop Fake Fur Coat (thrifted) / Free People Dress (ebay) / Sam Edelman Boots (ebay)

Fred Meyer Cap / Coach Bag (thrifted, gift)

As you might noticed from the posts, everything except for the Nine West pants from Sam's Club are second hand, either from the thrift store or the magical world of ebay. Shopping second has completely ruined me for paying retail prices, my first thought when looking in a store is "I can find this for way cheaper!" My pay per item limit is usually about $20 unless it's something I've been looking at for a long time or is a coat, shoes or a bag. In a run down of my 10x10 items, they are as follows:

Helmut Lang Coat on ebay = $39.99 + free shipping. This coat was a super score as Helmut Lang coat u

Helmut Lang Coat on ebay = $39.99 + free shipping. This coat was a super score as Helmut Lang coat usually go for far more in retail. I love the style, the workmanship and how warm all of my HL coats are so it's one the brand I really watch for.


Topshop Fake Fur Coat thrifted = $5.99
Trina Turk Cashmere Sweater thrifted = $2.49. This brand is nother that normally runs for a lot more but I have really good luck finding cheap cashmere at the thrift store. I've never bought a cashmere sweater retail so I get serious sticker shock looking at them!

Joie Embroidered Top = $7.49 + free shipping. You can find Joie shirts for dirt cheap on ebay! It's one of my favorite brands as I really enjoy the fabrics and details but again, I would never pay the $150-$250 that they normally run. I don't know why they run so cheap on ebay but they don't have nearly as high of a resale vaule as similar brands like Isabel Marant or Ulla Johnson.

Joe's Jeans thrifted = $5.49. I run between liking this brand and not but again, premium denim is something I have good luck finding at the thrift store. If not, ebay is another great place to find for very cheap if you are willing to wait a little bit.

Nine West Jeans, new from Sam's = $15. For being $15, these have been awesome pants that I've gotten a ton of wear out of.

Free People Dress from ebay = $23.99 + $3.49 shipping. I love Free People dress but yeah, not paying the $168 this dress ran in retail. It took waiting for six months after the dress sold out to find it at this price but I don't mind playing the long game. Love the embroidery on this and with the cut and the sleeves, it's one of my favorite dresses.

Winter Kate Dress from ebay = $39.99 + free shipping. This was a stupid good deal for this dress as it normally is listed around $100 resale but I love winter kate dresses and every now and then see them go for super cheap.

Sam Edelman Boots from ebay = $24.99 + $12.90 shipping. This was a lucky low bid that no one out bidded me on but Sam Edelman boot normally run very reasonable on ebay, as oppossed to thrift prices where SE is marked way up.

Moon Boots new on Ebay = $99 + free shipping. These are my most expensive item in the 10x10 and in my closet but I've wanted these boots for a while and had been saving up for them. Winter boots are worth spending on but as these are not sold in my town, the internet was my only option. I found a seller on ebay selling these brand new for what I felt was a reasonable price.

For 10 items inculding coats and boots, this is pretty reasonable! Right now 95% of my closet is second hand which I feel good about.
