Stuff Poppy Ate, an Addendum:
21) Amy's favorite jacket. RIP, favorite jacket.
This jacket was a Target find -- one of those great "I want something exactly like this but do not want to put any effort whatsoever into shopping for something like this" items you randomly spot on a rack on your way to pick up some paper towels. It was perfect. I wore it constantly in the fall and last spring, dressed up, dressed down, you name it. I LOVED this jacket.
(Good thing I also really, really love that dog.)
My first instinct when seeing the dog-shredded sleeve was to check and see if Target still sold it. And indeed, they do. For $40. I did not remember paying $40. And I did not particularly feel like paying $40 all over, again. Spending another $40 would mean that technically, I spent $80 on a faux leather moto jacket from Target.
(Don't try to argue with my brain logic here. It has very specific views about how money works.)
Thankfully, thredUP to the rescue.
(thredUP, in case you haven't checked it out yet, is the largest online resale shop where you can find just about everything from every brand for up to 90% off. )
I figured it still might be a longshot to find a similar jacket, but I was also in desperate need of some new jeans and other fall/winter staples. (I lost several favorite sweaters and scarves to cat claws; am sensing theme here.)
Here's my haul:
TWO pairs of Adriano Goldschmied jeans. One bootcut for $37.99 ($167 retail) and one skinny for $27.99 ($125 retail). One pair of black J Brand legging jeans for $37.99 ($189 retail). An embellished v-neck sweater by Miss Me for $20.99 ($71 retail) and cozy infinity scarf by 14th & Union for just $7.99 ($15 retail), and...
A faux leather moto jacket by Big Chill Vintage for...
EIGHTEEN NINETY NINE.
All told, I got $621 worth of clothes for $151.94. AND I didn't need to leave my house or deal with a store or a dressing room or like, other people.
(Dear Internet, one cat for sale, slightly used with tags.)
