You remember when I bought clothing last summer and after one wear it was already falling apart right? Swearing off cheap clothing means buying better quality and more expensive clothing… or so I thought. That minty green shirt I purchased last summer was around $20, and I just managed to update my entire wardrobe for about $15 per article of clothing. How you ask… Kijiji.
I spent $400 on clothing in February.
I probably shouldn’t have but I found an ad on Kijiji for 22 items (all Anthropologie) for $400. Now if you know and love Antrhopologie like I do you will know that tops usually range from $60-$120, dresses $150+ and skirts $80-$200. The girl that posted the ad was a former Anthro employee and was exactly my size. Well, not exactly… 2 of the skirts are too big on me but that’s okay, I can either re-sell them or get them taken in. I met her at a Starbucks near my house and frantically tried on all
22 26 items (she threw in 4 extra items at no cost) UM how could I say no?
I’ve been scouring Kijiji for deals since I’m hoping to buy a lot more clothing second hand. For a couple of reasons:
- it’s cheaper
- there are less toxins
- it’s a more sustainable option
2 of the tops even still had tags on them! (one for $98 and one for $88)
Here’s what I got for $400:
- 5 skirts
- 5 cardigans
- 2 dresses
- 14 tops
I’m in the process of doing another closet cull and throwing out a ton of stuff since I’m adding 26 new pieces and I really don’t have enough hangers for everything. That being said I haven’t decided if I’m going to keep everything and if I don’t I will likely re-sell.
When I costed out each piece was a little over $15 which is pretty damn good for Anthropologie!
Hello new wardrobe!!!
