Southern California has FINALLY started to get some cooler temps and yellow leaves so I didn't want to miss the opportunity to share a few new Fall pieces asap!(i.e. before it gets hot again and I'm back in shorts and sandals)
[Wilfred / Aritzia burgundy ruched front dress [new, $18] Top Shop pink ballet flats [new, $15] T Tahari camel sleeveless long vest [secondhand, $1] Ralph Lauren brown leather handbag [secondhand, $1] Gucci clubmaster sunglasses [new, $140]
Outfit Total: $175
I had really never heard of the brand Wilfred or store Aritzia until I started reselling and saw a lot of other resellers picking up this brand. Aritzia is a Canadian equivalent of Anthropologie that carries a variety of cute clothing and home good brands. I would say the style at Aritzia is more classic and simple than the style of Anthropologie, but similar feel. I've been to the store in San Francisco and I wanted everything! Plus I found out that Meghan Markle shops there often so, yeah, it must be good.
I was actually searching through ThredUp clearance for the Wilfred brand when I came across this dress for $30, and it was used. The price was still over half off the retail price, and I loved the color and the style, but thought I would search Poshmark and eBay to see if I could find any better deals. I came across this beauty in my size NEW WITH TAGS listed for $18. I offered $12 to see if the seller was flexible on the price and she accepted pretty quickly! With the $6.50 shipping cost I got this brand new dress for only $18.50!
When I was putting together this outfit to shoot I had originally thought I would pair it with a cute pair of nude pointy toe bow flats that I recently picked up from a Banana Republic Factory clearance sale. But when these shoes caught my eye I fell in love with the color combo! The burgundy + brown is super autumn-esque but the pop of pink makes it more feminine! You can bet this dress will be paired with these cute flats again.
On a side note, I have been very impressed with these Top Shop shoes! I picked them up in January of this year, and have wore them a lotttt. All over The Netherlands during our trip in March! And aside from that they have maintained their shape and have barely any marks. I have not shopped at Top Shop much in the past, and the prices I've seen of it are similar to H&M so I conisdered a "cheapy" brand. But I picked these up on clearance at Nordstrom Rack for $15 and so far they have been a great investment!
I <3 this T Tahari wool sleeveless, hooded sweater because it is so easy + comfy and I really like how it pulls together an outfit. I originally picked it up for $1 from a Goodwill color tag sale day to resell, but here we are. T Tahari can be found at a number of higher end department stores like Bloomingdales or Neimans, but the reason I think this piece had not been picked up yet was because it had some pilling of the material. However with the help of my handy dandy fabric shaver I love so much, it is in great shape once again! If you also hate pilling you can pick up one up on Amazon for a great price HERE (plus free ship!)
(LOVE the hood)
