Sail Away

dress – ralph lauren old / bracelet – kjp / shoes – clarks old, belt – c/o ll bean

I remember seeing this dress years ago from Ralph Lauren and never pulled the trigger on buying it. While I don’t advocate buying excessively, sometimes there are things that stick out to you that you didn’t buy and wish you did. This is one of those items I wish I bought, but thankfully Poshmark is the place for second chances!

I’m the last person on earth to discover Poshmark, but I’m definitely addicted. There are items I didn’t buy and regret, so I know when I can remember them years later that I probably should have purchased them. I love being able to search Poshmark and buy the items I regretted not buying now for a fraction of the price. This sailboat dress was purchased for $20!

This L.L. Bean belt above is my new favorite accessory! Made of thick rope and leather, it’s the perfect accent to any dress for summer. It compliments the sailboat dress perfectly, but would also make more of a statement on a plain dress. I look forward to wearing it often throughout the season.

Is there anything you’ve regretted not buying? I still have one more thing that haunts me – a hunter green j crew puffer vest. It was on sale but I didn’t buy it because a friend of mine just got a different green vest and I didn’t want to seem like I was copying her. That’s definitely not a good reason not to buy something! I check Poshmark every so often but am still searching for the exact one. 🙂

    Love the dress, Robin! What a lucky score to find it on Poshmark. I once read a quote that said something along the lines of “Nothing haunts us like things we didn’t buy” It’s so true! I am still kicking myself for not buying this plaid J.Crew vest. Maybe I’ll start searching Poshmark, too! xx Rox-Anne Celebrating This Life

      YES! This is why I love poshmark, I’ve bought maybe 4 things that were once shopping regrets. I hope you find your vest!

    I totally know how that feels! It’s the pieces that haunt you that you wish you would have bought the first time. I totally understand!

    What a cute look!! I love finding treasures on eBay or poshmark. It’s even better when someone compliments your outfit and you’re able to say you got it cheaper…that’s one of my favorite things!
