Head to Toe J.Crew Factory

JCrew Factory | Style Me Thrifty

If you could only wear one brand for the next year, what brand would you choose? At age 24, I probably would have said Forever 21 (I was obsessed). Age 28, I’m sure it was Express. I still love both brands, but at my stylish old age of 32, it’s a total no brainer: J.Crew Factory. I could close my eyes and point at something on their website, and there would be a 100% chance I’d love it. The colors, the classic shapes, the whimsical jewelry. Love, love, love!

The other reason I’m all about J.Crew Factory? Because I can’t always afford J.Crew! Their Factory clothing is the perfect way of wearing J.Crew-esque pieces, without the hefty price tag. Plus, Factory is always running sales (currently it’s up to 50% off everything).

I hope to get one more wear out of the nautical dress this fall, perhaps with a jean jacket and booties instead. What brands are you currently loving?

Wish List Wednesday: Warehouse Brand

September 10, 2014

When it comes to online shopping, sometimes I’m convinced I’ve hit the end of the internet. No more new clothing brands to discover. No more results. It’s just the same brands and the same expected pieces.

Since the shopping gods don’t want me to lose my faith in online shopping, they know exactly how to reel me back in. With a cool clothing brand I’ve never heard of before! How is this possible? I’ve explored the entire internet!

Meet Warehouse. A UK-based retailer featuring on-trend pieces, classic staples, and doable prices. Have you heard of them before? I’d like all 10 of these items, pretty please. (All of which are available on ASOS website, which means free shipping both ways!)

Striped Perfection

September 8, 2014

Black & white striped dress

Every once in awhile, the perfect piece of clothing walks into our lives. Meet one of mine: this black & white striped shift dress. I swear, this dress was destined for my closet.

I was browsing the selection of over 2,000 dresses from ASOS — talk about dress overload! — when this beauty happened to catch my attention. I decided to purchase it to wear for my first wedding anniversary dinner and was thrilled (literally, a happy dance ensued) when I slipped it on and it fit. Perfectly. Bold stripes, a flattering fit, and did I mention it has a neon pink zipper down the back? LOVE.
