It's New to Me No. 3

Welcome to the third addition of It's New to Me.  Each week, we will post an online outfit that we were inspired by.  Then we'll show you the outfit we thrifted.  Sometimes it will be an exact copy of the outfit and other times it will be a similar outfit.  We'll give you the rundown of the online or store pricing and then show you what we paid for our outfit.  Our goal is to show tweens and teens that you don't have to spend a lot of money to look great. We hope to encourage you to "shop green" and thrift whenever possible.

This week, our inspiration comes from this outfit at J. Crew.

  1. Good job! You've made an outfit that's maybe cuter than the original.

  2. Adorable, and I agree- cuter than the original. Now I want to find some ties!
