I want to introduce you to a concept called Thred Up. Now we all remember our Platos closet days when we would sell our clothes and spend hours in the store for new ones. Thred Up is an online consignment shop for gently used items. The best part is they have a designer section here, so no more digging through clothes. I scored this top and bottom under a $100 for both when originally the price tag rang up $220ish for the top and over $600 for the skirt. Talk about insane numbers and what a deal! I was browsing around for a new skirt, y’all know this girl loves me some skirts, and I cam across this designer skirt in white. Oh boy the new price made me giddy. The material online looked great but it was nothing compared to the actual quality of the skirt when received. I kind of can’t stop wearing it. I paired it with a fun yellow silk blouse that also was found in the Thred Up designer section. Of course since these items are on consignment, they don’t have any left. Sorry ladies, I snatched these goodies! I did find a similar skirt and a similar top to duplicate this outfit.
 
I also found a link for you first time Thred Up users to receive $10 off your first order. You can create your own link after signed up to pass along the treat. http://www.thredup.com/r/XO7BLP
  

This outfit was shot at the stunning Chateau Cocomar, a wedding venue near and dear to my heart. Isn’t the background stunning? These pictures do not do the venue justice. I use to work at Chateau Cocomar as a wedding planner a couple years back. It was every girls dream job. To the staff to my brides, I enjoyed every minute of it. The castle was also the wedding venue Ted and I got married at in 2012 (we were the first Saturday evening wedding). SOOO many memories have been made at this venue and lifelong friendships. I especially owe my life to the owner Karen Martin who has allowed me to have such a stunning wedding and believed in my little 19 year old self to start working there. She is such an inspiration to my life! It puts a smile on my face to know my journey at the castle so I wanted to share!
