As most of you might know, my husband James just returned from overseas. I am usually on top of things, but I was so stumped when having to pick out the perfect outfit for his welcome home! I didn't want to buy something too pricey, but I did want to find quality pieces that would look great for him and feel great on my wallet.
I immediately had a light bulb moment when realizing that hello, ThredUP has proven to be a saving grace! I quickly went over to the sight and found the perfect ensemble in seconds, and y'all I saved over $90 on my purchase! That's the great thing about ThredUP, you get designer and high quality pieces for less, which is why I am a firm believer in shopping secondhand first. I love finding pieces that are more unique and my entire outfit was under $50 which is a major plus.
I knew I wanted to do some sort of romper because I didn't want any flashing mishaps happen. I narrowed it down by size and color and immediately fell in love with this lace romper from AX Paris.
cost: $10, originally $36
Since it was a military homecoming, I wanted it to still look patriotic without going overboard (if you know me, I tend to be a little too much! haha) I wanted to look classy, while still showing my pride in my husband, so I found the perfect deep red heels from Arturo Chiang.
ThredUP has a huge range of clothes and I love that there is a ton of variety when choosing items, especially in high quality brands. ThredUP carries brands like Free People, J. Crew, Tory Burch, Ann Taylor, & many more.
cost: $14, originally $74
I decided at the last second to wear flats, but that evening we went out and I wore the heels and y'all, they were so comfy to walk around in and looked great!
The last finishing touch I kinda had a freak out moment over. I have a weakness for anything vintage looking and I couldn't click 'add to cart' fast enough when I scrolled to this La Regale crossbody bag!
cost: $13, originally $37
I ended up paying a total of $48 and I saved OVER $98!!!! That is unreal. That is a saving of 67%, which makes me super thrilled because I didn't want to spend a ton on my homecoming outfit.

I wanted to be able to finally dress nice for his homecoming because during his last deployment I went super casual. I wanted this time to be perfect, and thanks to ThredUP I was able to find a flawless outfit that was a mix of classy, vintage, and affordable all in one, which isn't an easy thing to accomplish!
