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 9



I love the colors in this Lane Bryant dress, even though a co-worker said it looked like peacock colors.

If that's the case, I am going to strut my stuff!

I found this on ThredUP for $10. Couldn't pass it up.

I like the high-low hemline. Plus, I have cute cardigans that match every color in the dress.

Faux leatherĀ 


So… I was told I was too old to wear leather pants. Really? Is anyone too old to wear a pair? 

Found this pair of fix leather leggings on ThredUP for $6.99. They are Forever21 brand and we’re new with tags. To me, it was a great purchase. 

Paired them with this cute slogan T that I found at Family Dollar, on sale for $11.99, reduced from $15. 

A pair of cream leg warmers – Shopko clearance – $4.99 and tall black boots completed the ensemble. 

Lots of compliments. Me-owwww! 

Sweater dress for comfort


Nothing beats leggings and an oversized sweater during winter months. 

I found a light gray cable knit sweater dress on ThredUP for $7.99. It’s Cato brand so I knew I would like it and how it fit. #secondhandfirst is the way to go! 

Since it’s chilly in the office – and the sweater has short-sleeves, I added a blue/black/gray lightweight cardigan. Honestly, I don’t know where I found this gem. 

The blue/black plaid scarf is from Cato, on clearance, for $2.99. Bargain. 

All of that was paired with black leggings and a pair of short black boots from Payless. 

Perfect comfort in a cold winter day.
