Happy Wednesday, everyone! If you all remember last year, I did a post on Schoola, an online clothing consignment shop that gives 40% of proceeds to schools. Think of a hybrid of an e-commerce online thrift store and a fundraising platform for schools to raise money to support their school and creative programs within. I have partnered with them again for a fun Fall campaign and wanted to share some exciting news with you all!!
I am excited to announce that Schoola has now partnered with some amazing brands this year including Athleta, Pam & Gela and many others. Unlike before, these designers are all new-with-tags and ready to shop on their website. The same shopping concept is still there but now you are able to shop brand new in addition to gently used. And like before, with each and every purchase, 40% of the proceeds to back to either the Malala Fund, which raises money for education for girls all around the world, or to a school of your choice. If that right there wasn’t enough to get you to start your Fall shopping, these designer items are MUCH cheaper than buying from the original retailer.
The outfit I featured is probably one of my favorites so I decided to shoot a day to night version to show just how versatile Athleta products really are. I wore this comfy sweater out for errands but really needed to dress things up a little for a night out in Austin so I paired it with some faux leather leggings and a cute hat to top things off! This sweater is beyond cozy and it even has my favorite thumb holes in the sleeves! I was sold!! And ladies, it’s only $32… That’s 75% off retail!!
I guess I shouldn’t say I have favorites because this LBD was another one of my favorites. I am a HUGE fan of Pam & Gela so when I saw this dress online, I had to get it!! It’s only $66, down from $165 and is a perfect essential for Fall! I would definitely recommend sizing up as it was pretty form fitting. I wanted to show the versatility of this stunner by pairing it with and without a leather jacket. That way, you can easily get wear out of this dress as we transition into the cooler months and once we get into Fall, throw on some OTKs and a leather jacket and you’re good to go!
If you know me, you know I’m a sucker for great tees and anything casual, for that matter. I mean, who doesn’t stock up on great tees?! Another Pam & Gela score, this top is on sale for $38 and even comes in black! If you’re not familiar with Pam & Gela, they are the gals that brought all of us Juicy Couture and those ever-so addicting track suits that we lived in for years!
Now, who’s ready for mega cozy?? Joggers are one thing that I absolutely obsess over if they fit me correctly and these Pam & Gela pants were winners!! There are only a couple sizes left (S and M) so act fast before they are gone! I know joggers aren’t for everyone, but let me just tell you how versatile they are. First, you can easily wear these as super comfy lounge pants while watching a movie, curled up on the couch by a fire. Sounds dreamy, huh!? You can definitely dress these pants up as well. I threw on a black tank and tennies and ran around Austin, but if you throw on a leather jacket and a pair of heels, you’re ready for a night out on the town!
I urge you all to check Schoola out and request a bag to start cleaning out that closet and help a child gain that creative freedom they are longing for! It gives me hope for some of the less fortunate children out there who don’t get access to creative classes!
