We all know that back to school is stressful for parents and kids, never mind trying to afford all the clothing that goes along with growing children! I won’t lie, I love new trendy clothing and you all know how I love to shop but I am not opposed to buying gently used clothing. In fact, many of the outfits I purchased for my stepdaughters when they were younger were gently used. I love brand names but despise their price tags!
Want to learn how to get the look for less with MoxieJean plus win a gift card for your own shopping spree? Keep reading!
I was recently contacted by MoxieJean asking if I would like to review their site and share my thoughts with all of you. The site was launched by two sisters in the fall of 2012 offering unique, stylist-created looks from favorite brands like Gymboree, Gap, Tea Collection, Hanna Andersson, Mini Boden, Baby Lulu and Ralph Lauren, plus designer brands like Oilily, Mayoral, DKNY, Burberry, and Juicy Couture, all at 75% or more off retail prices.
Did you know from this year’s press release from the National Retail Federation that the average back to school shopper will spend an average of $231.30 on clothes and $124.46 on shoes. For under $25, I purchased a pair of gently used Crew Cuts jeans and a Crew Cuts sweater from MoxieJean. If I had purchased these new at JCrew, I would have spent over $100. Seriously? That is crazy for something my son will out grow in a couple months. I was thrilled with the quality and he loves the outfit. I paired the purchase with an existing checkered button down that he already had. A cute designer outfit for minimal money.
MoxieJean is all about Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – they donate all unpurchased or lightly damaged items to Kid’s Pantry in Chicago. I love that!
Isn’t the outfit cool? My son digs the outfit and really thinks he is the cool one…..
I created this fun video with my son and you have to watch, it made my grandfather bust out laughing ;). He still hasn’t figured out how his great grandson got in the video.
Turn up your volume, it’s a catchy tune!
