FEBRUARY & MARCH FABFINDS

FEBRUARY & MARCH FAB FINDS - BETWEENTHERACKS.COM

The people that know me, know that I hardly ever spend retail on ANYTHING. I admit, I’m addicted to brand-name clothing, but I still wear a variety of brands, from Forever 21 to Alexander McQueen. If something is a little more trendy, I tend to not spend as much. However, why would I pay $30 on a pair of jeans from F21, when I can spend that (or even less) on some J Brand jeans that are better quality, and last longer? Why spend $20 on a rayon shirt, when I can spend $20 on a silk shirt instead? Que the bargain-hunting addiction; it takes a lot of time and patience, but in the end, there’s nothing like that feeling of scoring a great deal!

I’ve decided to do a monthly series to show what I purchase every month and how much I pay for it (I am a little behind, so I’m combining February and March this time). Since I live in a small town (about 45 minutes to Fort Worth, and 1.5 hours to Dallas) with not a lot of shopping, I mostly shop online through Ebay, Poshmark, and outlet websites such at Hautelook and Gilt. Every once in a while we make the trip to Nordstrom Rack or consignment stores, or I’ll stop by my local Goodwill. I also sell my old clothes on Poshmark (you can find the link to my closest on the right of the screen), which helps fund new purchases as bargain-hunting tends to make my closet fill up fast, and I have too many impulse buys that I don’t wear! I will also try to find the original item, if it’s still available, and link to it in case people are interested (I use ShopStyle Collective). So…here’s what I found the last couple months!

    Completely off subject but I just read you are located near Dallas. I was born in Mt. Pleasant and have family that live in Dallas and the surrounding area. I know how scarce the shopping can be. And that Vince fur vest was totally worth the “splurge”. I am in the market for something similiar myself. = )

    1. Ah really?! How cool! I am in Granbury (about 30 minutes southwest of Ft Worth) and we just moved here a couple years ago. Some of the consignment stores in Dallas are great, but I don’t make it up very often, and they are mostly overpriced. And thanks for the reassurance on the fur vest!! I had been eyeing it for quite a while because its more practical here, and a friend of mine bought one and I was completely obsessed. If I happen to see one I’ll tag you! I see them on ebay occasionally for decent prices too.
