I got a little overexcited shopping this month. I was on a spending freeze for almost 2 months so I guess I should have known it was coming, AND I'm really proud of the deals I found. I have been really obsessed with stripes, so I stocked up on more....because you can never have enough stripes, right?! Okay, maybe that's just me. I also tried finding a few more basic pieces. I only spent full price on one top in that whole collage! I couldn't help myself. (I'll let you know which one towards the end)
Everything I bought below was from an online site called ThredUp.
ThredUp is basically an online thrift store. They buy and sell gently used clothing from top brands. I love Express clothing but can't really afford to buy it at the full price, so this has been a great option for me. Every top above is from Express. The only thing I bought that wasn't from Express was the striped skirt on the bottom left.
Here is what I paid for 8 tops, 1 jacket, and 1 skirt from ThredUp:
Express camel sweater - $8.49
Express red and navy baseball tee - $7.49
Express b&w dolman top - $12.49
Express blue and black top - $10.49
Express red & white henley - $7.99
Express berry top - $8.49
Express grey top - $9.49
Apt 9 skirt - $8.99
Express jacket - $18.99
Express b&w striped top - $9.49
Subtotal - $102.40
Free shipping & 20% discount TOTAL: $81.92

I'm really happy with that total and the amount of stuff I was able to find! Obviously the Foo Fighters top was the full price item. It's been a long time since I paid full price for anything, but it was worth it! I bought my husband tickets to see Foo Fighters for our anniversary, and I have to buy a tee shirt at every concert I go to. It's tradition! And also why I have a whole dresser drawer full of band shirts. haha! Ooops!
