ThredUP Box Reveal


Trying to teach this old journalist some new work-related skills/tricks, so I shot a video about my latest ThredUP bargain.


Dress challenge, day 11


How many black dresses can you have?

Not enough.

I grabbed this one at Old Navy for $9 and paired it with a red cami, from Cato, which I snagged for $6.99.

I like the flexibility of this outfit, especially for shoes and accessories.

Dress challenge, day 10


So…have you ever purchased a dress and then thought 'why did I buy that?'

That's how I felt about this number from Target … until I wore it.

It's like a little slice of heaven. Soft. Comfortable.

Best of all : clearance-priced at $9.

I paired it with a silver necklace that came with a shirt (purchased on clearance) and a cardigan from Maurice's. Cardigan was marked down to $24.

Shoes are from Gordmans, $9.

Multiple compliments today. 😀

Dress challenge, day 8


Oh, I like the contrast of colors with this dress.

It is kind of dressy for the newsroom, but it's also summery and cool on a hot July day.

Dress comes from Cato. Lined and features a built-in stretch belt to create empire waist line. Empire waist.

Original price: $29. I paid $19. Bet you're green with envy, right? 😉
