Date Night Look Under $100

Every day I am becoming more and more open to receiving the great abundance of the universe.

Shopping secondhand can be so satisfying; in a world where a single item under $100 is considered a deal, I was delighted when invited me to the challenge of putting together an entire look for $100.

If you aren't familiar with, they are an online consignment shop, home to hundreds of thousands of items, some new, some vintage, all at huge discount.

Since I knew Sean's birthday, as well as Valentine's Day were fast approaching, I decided I would go for a date night look. I started by searching for lace dresses, and finally decided on this one by Free People, which was new with tags for $40. Since I didn't actually own a simple black coat, that was the next item I started searching for. By using the search modifiers, I was able to easily narrow down size and color options to find a great Lauren by Ralph Lauren cashmere blend coat for $35, which left me with shoes, the biggest challenge. I looked and looked, and it took me a couple days, but I decided to take a chance on a pair of vintage Andrea Pfister pumps for $12. And then, because I took too long to find the shoes, someone else bought the coat! There being no shortage of black coats, I settled on this H&M wrap coat for a mere $16, bringing the grand total of my look to $68.

It's always worth it to shop secondhand, give clothes a second life, get some unique items, and get unbeatable deals! If you are ready to give a try, you can get 20% off your first order and free shipping!

  4. Such a pretty look! And I loooove finding great steals like that!

  5. What an amazing look for such a great prize! I love the dress and heels you chose! I haven't tried yet, but with those prices I need to!

  6. The fact that this whole look, including a cashmere blend coat, came together for under $100 is nothing short of miraculous - particularly considering that I spent more than that on the last one item of clothing I bought...! While I tend to only go for secondhand handbags and generally prefer my clothes new, I have to say you have me very tempted to start investigating!

  7. I can not believe you put this together for $68!! You look amazing! Love the dress and heels!

  16. It's a beautiful dress Lydia! I love those shoes! The price for clothes nowadays is super crazy! LOL They keep going higher and higher. Same for shoes. Swap sounds like a wonderful service. I buy second hand and don't think twice about it.

  20. What a bargain of an outfit! It's nice that the site is so easy to shop, second hand shopping often takes a while if you're hunting on racks for something specific. This is a beautiful outfit too.

    Hope you are having a lovely week :)
