totally torn


A Fashion Huntress first: nighttime photos! I got home a little too late for daylight photos, so I gave night photos a try. As promised in my last post, here is the Tory Burch dress I got from ThredUp. Of course, right after I took these photos, one of the buttons fell off the dress completely (photo below). Talk about a fixer upper…I feel like Charlie Brown at Halloween.

Blah! This dress was definitely not the “nearly new” quality it was listed as online (see my last post). But, I’ll fix the button, and with a cardigan, you definitely don’t notice any seam issues that I couldn’t fix myself. Sigh. Not a dream come true, in the end. But, it photographed well in the dark. Just don’t look too closely. 😉

Dress: Tory Burch via ThredUp ($10, retails for approx $700)
Cardigan: Banana Republic ($18 marked down from $70)
Tights: Nordstrom Rack (approx $5)
Shoes: Not Rated via DSW ($50 marked down from $75)


You can read my full review on ThredUp in my last post, as I mentioned. As follow up, the team was not able to find the shirt I had initially ordered that didn’t ship, so that was a bummer. And, this dress ended up with the broken button after I wore it once. I don’t think this changes my overall opinion of their site, I would just say buyer beware and be prepared for returns, if needed!

  1. oh no, what a bummer! i had hoped you would at least get the Marc Jacobs top. 😦 i have never tried buying thrift clothes/items online, i think this was pretty much why… i guess i fall into the category of people who would trust more of what i can actually touch & see. :p but anyways, i can’t wait to see the other successful items! this dress looks gorgeous and just as you said, you can pretty much cover up the faulties or fix them. 🙂

    1. Yeah, so I have to post an update that the Marc Jacobs top was apparently already sold…so I never even got it! Total downer- but I will post the Milly jacket, because it’s great. Overall, I was definitely wondering if it’s really worth the hassle of returning items, etc. It’s a little easier to rely on yourself when inspecting items!! 🙂
