Free Clothes for Girls

I have posted a few outfits for women that I have received amazing deals on and hope that others are taking advantage of as well through the links I have provided :).

Let us take a look at a few kids pieces from these links and of course I will throw in a Goodwill find ;). Even though I am a little upset at the drastic price hikes that Goodwill has done lately (as well as “retail” upgrades)  in SWFL (and maybe all over, I’m not sure), I can still find a few good deals here and there, just not as often as I used to.

We will start with my daughter. I have picked out my daughters clothes for years, but when she turned 10 (maybe that is a little late to some) she started picking out her own (as long as they were age appropriate, affordable, and not too cray cray). I am incredibly lucky to have a daughter who trusts my taste in clothes for her (for the most part- once in a while there’s a few pieces she turns her nose up at), and appreciates the fact that I think about her (and my son) when I am clothes shopping or just happen to run across a random piece somewhere.

I actually asked some questions that a friend had posted on Facebook, and had my kids answer them honestly. Here is what they said (yes, no. 7 is missing because my friend took that one off since it was about height, hahaha).

DuGreis questions

Alexis questions

They were pretty legit answers even though some are a bit off, they really crack me up with how they think or what they think about us as parents even with such basic questions. But number 10 for Alexis is what I am talking about here. She remembers this about me and what I do for her, and I feel she really appreciates it or this would have not come up in the conversation. It really makes me feel good. Little things make me feel good.

She always has those headphones ;).

About this outfit:

This is a hat that Alexis ordered for FREE off of Poshmark. For free? Yup, you may have noticed me explain how in previous blog posts, but as an overview…….

Download the free app, Poshmark, on your smart phone and sign up as a NEW user. At the time of sign up, enter the code BOJQX for a $10 dollar credit toward your first purchase. Poshmark allows you to shop from closets of regular people across the entire country. Some have very gently used clothes, and many have brand new, never worn clothes with tags attached. You can find amazing discounted deals on these items that run you far less than chain stores even though they originally came from there!! Some people do sell retail items on the site, but we obviously look for the bargains on new and used pieces.

This hat is in excellent condition and it is from Justice, another reason why Alexis loves it so much, haha. It was listed at $8 I believe and she offered $5 and it was accepted. Normally shipping is 4.99 flat unless your bundles weigh more than 5 pounds. I missed out on the .99 first time shipping price because Poshmark does not accept American Express so I had to wait for a Visa. The total still came out to be $9.99, but with her $10 credit, it was free. Was it a waste of $10? I don’t think so. She is in love with it and wears it daily, inside and out, lol. I allowed her to choose an item and this is what she chose!

*******************************************************************************************

Her T-shirt was a NWOT (new without tags) top that I found on the site ThredUP (my favorite site).

Thredup9

Here are a few pieces from a ThredUP shipment for Alexis (all like new).

The picture has no cracking, peeling, missing sequins or any flaws because it is a NWOT top, and it was FREE!!! Sign up (on the web for easier browsing) for ThredUP HERE to get your FREE $20 worth of clothes (5.99 shipping) just for joining with a NEW (never used before device, email, username) account (please do not try to make multiple accounts as your credits will not be valid).

She LOVES these clothes, and she knows that I LOVE saving so that I have more money to put somewhere else for my kids needs or overall family needs. For all of us, it is a blast seeing how our next deal can be better than the first! I feel that I am teaching my kids not to be stingy, but to be smart with money because like I have mentioned before, there is no sense in spending $50 on a pair of jeans when I can get the same or similar pair for $3 elsewhere when the kids are going to outgrow them in less than a year!!! We all probably have access to a washing machine so there really is no shame here.

****************************************************************************************

Top: Justice- ThredUP– $0 (NWOT- not maternity)

Tank: (Hidden)- Dollar General- $2

Jeans: Either Justice, Gap or Levis- $3 Goodwill

Necklace: Free gift from one of her grandmothers for Christmas. A glitter filled bottle.

Jacket: Cant remember brand but I believe we got at a Ross.

Hat: Justice- Poshmark- $0 ($8 offered $5 and used credits so nothing out of pocket).

Don’t forget to visit one of my previous blogs titled “FREE CLOTHES” to find out how you can get your own free orders on gently used clothes and brand new clothes 😀.

If I find more, I will be sure to update for you guys!! Thanks for visiting and don’t forget to pass up these great deals. You can always earn MORE credits/free money for more clothes. It doesn’t stop with your first purchase :D.

How to Dress for Pregnancy

I’m not saying I know everything there is to know about clothes or fashion because I don’t. Is it a dream of mine? Um, yuh, since I was in 1st grade, and won art contests and design contests throughout my school years.

Does it stink that I can’t fill my closet with the top designer names spending thousands and thousands…..and thousands for them? I guess I would have to say a little bit because it does sound magnificent, but it just isn’t practical right now. Maybe one day, but even then, after going through what my family has gone through, it is hard to imagine spending so much on one item even if I wouldn’t miss the money.

Then I wondered, if I do become the fashion designer that I’ve always dreamed of and have been told I would be, would I become one of those designers that for some reason charges over $1000 for a pair of shoes????

NOTE: On the app, Poshmark, you are able to find the TOP designer names at discounted prices because they are being sold by individuals cleaning out their personal closets from home!! Many items are gently used and many are new with tags including, Jimmy Choo, Prada to Abercrombie & Fitch just as an example of the variety. It is such a fun place to browse! Be SURE to check out the link below that explains these awesome places to go to.

Beyonce spent a cool $400k on these diamond encrusted heels. Hmmm….

I don’t know at this point. It is business, but then again, here I am trying to show people that they can look good without spending that kind of money…or even $25 dollars kind of money, HAHA. So, gosh, It’s pretty complicated.

Anyway, today’s “On the Body” is an outfit worn out yesterday to get rid of kids clothes that are too small for my kids. I’ll say it has been freezing in Florida these past couple of weeks. 60 degrees is no joke and then 39 today. Mmmmm, no. Ridiculous, hence the jacket. Try to guess the price of the entire outfit while scrolling through the photos and tell me what you guessed in the comments :).

I picked these jeans up in a “bundle” sale on Poshmark. Since I had credits and funds available from sales, I was able to checkout for no money out of pocket. I got two pairs for $10 plus discounted shipping, but spent $0.

My daughter isn’t too shabby at photos, huh? Thanks, Alexis!! I will be posting one of her outfits soon so you will get more ideas for kids :).

My husband took the dogs out while we were doing our little at home blog photos shoot, lol, so Saiban, our male Pomeranian decided to say hi. Then he took a long time to leave!!

There is nothing wrong with using a Claire’s clutch for your ID, chapstick, cards, cash or other small items you may carry on a quick errand! And at this price, psh, no shame.

These statement necklaces are similar to those more pricey ones found at Loft, J Crew, and other designer stores, but I bet you I didn’t pay near those prices.

I have to say, my hubby makes me feel so small and beautiful, especially during times I think I look like a cow!! Love him and his awesome dimples!

Okay! So, ready for the price tags?! I do think J (my husband) is silently impressed that I have been able to dress our entire family for such amazing prices ;).
