Treat Yo Self: Gifts Under $100
After saying a long goodbye to the challenging year of 2020, it’s important to reward yourself for the the little things- even if it was just as small as surviving the year. Hopefully after the long holidays you are left with a little spending money for yourself. We here at 2nd Street have pieces ranging from all prices, so let’s take a look at some them — all marked under 100 dollars!
This piece could be overlooked because, let’s face it, the shirt could use a quick go-over with a steamer. However, this is a simple fix, and for a shirt that will offer great reward for the future buyer. This shirt effortlessly sparks joy! You can’t help but picture yourself somewhere on a tropical island enjoying a fruity cocktail. One can dream, maybe after COVID will we be able to visit remote tropical paradises, but for now I guess there’s Florida (depending on how you look at it). The colorful flamingos dancing around cute little rhinestones placed delicately in the water. This shirt is one of a kind and can be yours for sixteen dollars.
Next, we have these vintage patchwork denim jeans. These straight-legged pants have the perfect cut made to accentuate any booty. And what’s more these pants have a cute quilted butt to draw even more attention to those curves. Their jeans are casual cowboy cotillion and would match perfectly with a pair of cowboy boots. You’ll be able to giddy up into the night ready to line dance with your perfect partner. These jeans can be a part of your wardrobe for sixteen dollars.
While at the Costa Mesa location, I was browsing the vast Anti Social Social Club section and came across this gem. While they had many collaboration pieces with different brands such as A Bathing Ape, Rimowa, and Dover Street Market, something drew me to this hoodie. Mostly the colors but I also liked the bold large print on the back. A simple piece, but a nice basic addition to have in your closet. This hoodie is selling for eighty-nine dollars, so get out there and grab it!
What we have next is a simple asymmetrical denim skirt. While it does show some signs of wear, there is a simple solution to fixing distressed white clothing — dye it! Grab some inspiration from dome of your favorite the die of airbrush accounts and get creative. This skirt is literally a blank canvas ready to be made into one of your favorite items in your closet. Everyone will ask where you got your skirt, and you’ll be able to respond blissfully that you made it yourself. You can buy that satisfaction for the low low of twenty three dollars.
The following piece can be found in the “Staff Pick” section. This denim duster had some weight to it so during these unprecedentedly cold months in California where it can be 95 degrees one weekend and 46 and rainy the next, one may need a heavy coat — you literally never know. This Machine coat has super soft suede arms and patches throughout the jacket that added a bit of color and texture. When equipped, it take on the rain with a sleek half-and-half hood — you’ll be drippin’. This coat could be yours for seventy-nine dollars.
We’ll be sticking with the cold weather theme for this next one. These new beanie/hats have really taken off as a trend this last year and, hey, I’m not mad at it. This plaid edition is no exception, and it will keep you warm and stylish through the winter. Don’t ask me what to do with it when it warms back up to 100 degrees again, since it has no bill and therefore no use for the sun - just pack it away till next winter, I suppose. This cozy little cap could make its way home with you for the value of twenty three dollars.
The next item may seem a little off hand, but Crocs are here to stay baby. These worn in shoes are perfect for all you people who took up gardening and plant moms and dads alike. Can’t you see yourself watering the grass, replanting your new succulents, recycling coffee grounds into your roses, all while not worrying about your feet getting dirty? Everyone loves a new designated shoe just for a specific purpose. So grab yourself some gardening footwear for five dollars (so basically free).
Thank you for joining us on this range of prices and items. You can really find anything at 2nd Street. There’s dope pairs of pants for five dollars as well as the high fashion pieces for hundreds of dollars — whatever you’re feeling, trust me, there’s an option for you. Lastly, know you are supporting the planet and recycling every time you choose second hand fashion over fast fashion.
