Hello, again, my lovelies.
So. Earlier today, I posted about my hometown thrift haul! My mom and I visited our local Salvation Army store this afternoon. There, among other items, I found two knit tops. I thrifted this grey striped one:
Well. Tonight I was browsing around on ThredUp, the online clothing thrift extravaganza. I can’t believe it, but I actually found the same Mary McFadden knit top, in electric blue for sale for $32.99. Here it is:
I would have to be fabulously wealthy (which I am not!) to be able to spend $200 on a knit top. I can’t even imagine a universe where I would spend $200 on a knit top. I lack the sort of imagination to be able to envision spending $200 on a knit top. $200 for a knit top?!? Really?!?
No disrespect to Ms. McFadden. I know designers are talented people and deserve to be compensated for their talent. However, it is times like this that I really enjoy participating in the secondhand economy. Seriously. I am going to thoroughly enjoy wearing my two $200 Mary McFadden knit tops, proudly knowing I paid a mere $4 for each!!! I paid just 2% of MSRP for these knit tops!!! 98% savings! Ka-Ching!
Don’t you just love a bargain?
