#FashionFriday Thredup Haul

2017-12-01 14.24.31

I’ve been trying to thrift more clothing lately. Not only to save money, but one of my cousins who has always worked in high fashion has recently begun to be an advocate of thrifting. Apparently, fashion is the 3rd biggest pollution industry in the world! Anyway, I’ve decided to try Thredup They recently had a 40% off deal that I just couldn’t pass up. First of I gotta say it was incredibly easy purchasing the clothing, plus I actually trust the site to have quality control and make sure everything was of good quality. I always get nervous buying clothes online and I think buying used/thrift clothing is even worse.

The brown Maurice jacket is really comfortable, not as warm as I was hoping it would be. I love the zip up and the giant buttons. I have a thing for giant buttons! Since we moved here to Idaho winters are colder so I’ve been looking for warm jackets that don’t drain my bank account.

I really love the star burgundy Zara cardigan is really warm, almost warmer than the jacket. It is also the most comfortable cardigan EVER! Okay, that may be an overdramatization since I have not worn every cardigan, but it’s close. It is a bit chunky but I love it. There are also 2 small pockets on the front for carrying small things if needed.

The Gloria Vanderbilt Kakis are exactly what they are. There seems to be some slight fading but it’s not so bad. there is zipper at the knee so you can make them shorts on warmer days.

The pink and black Annabelle dress is gorgeous, I bought it especially for my company Christmas party. It’s slightly thinner than I thought it would be and I hope it is not see through. If it is, a slip should suffice!

What do you think of my haul? Have you ever tried ThredUp?

Fashion is important no matter where you go!*


I like clothes, I think we’ve established that in the years I’ve been blogging. Gym clothes are no exception. I need to look stylish while being comfortable and sometimes that is a super hard thing to do. No only do the clothes have to fit, but they have to absorb sweat, not be see through (surprisingly this is hard to find.  So when offered to try these black Dawn Raid Capri workout pants I sort of jumped at the opportunity.

This capris do run small so it was a little discouraging when I had to order a size up and it still being slightly smaller than expected. The one pleasant thing I will add though is that the pants are not see-through so squatting and yoga will not be a problem! They are a magnet for lint and hair so if you are particular about being lint free you may want to bring a roller. With 2 cats and a dog I am quite used to having some sort of hair on me at all times (sometimes I is my own sooo…)

The pants are a very dark black that has yet to fade from washing, I am able to stretch in the pants despite them being tighter than I am used to. They are actually super comfortable and softer than I expected. Despite them being advertised as high waist, I found them to be more of a medium waist. This annoyed me a bit, but I got over it. Overall, these are comfy, stretchy and opaque, exactly what workout pants should be.
