Do you ever think about the power of social media?
I know, that’s an ambiguous question. Sure, sad stories or funny videos go viral on social media daily, but today this tale of the $14.99 sweater seriously shows how powerful and fast social media can be when it comes to the world of shopping! Alright, you’re probably asking yourself what the heck I’m talking about. Let’s get to this story about affordable winter style.
A friend of mine posted on Snapchat that everyone should run, not walk to Walmart. Then she posted a photo of a scavenged Walmart clothing aisle, which the only thing I could see in the aisle was clothing everywhere and a sale sign that had $39.99 crossed out and said “$14.99 Today ONLY!”
Mind you, I had no idea what was even on sale, but somehow I found myself at Walmart two hours later. It’s like it was inevitable for me.
Alas — it was this cowl neck sweater that was on sale. It came in 12 colors, and I quickly picked out 4 colors to take home and add to my wardrobe. It’s seriously soft, and has a cute little zipper accents on the side. I quickly added to my Insta Story a snap of the sweater I had just found. Four friends of mine saw it, and quickly ran to our local Walmart. Two of us showed up to drinks the next night wearing the same sweater. Yep, that happened.
I have never once bought fashion clothing from Walmart, but I think that might have changed now! I really do love this little $14.99 sweater! Have you ever found clothing that you fall in love with from an unexpected place? And have you ever bought into the hype of something you see on social media? Obviously as an influencer myself, I hope the answer to the latter question is a yes!
P.S. A little unrelated, but Anthropologie is holding their Winter Tag Sale. They have loads of new markdowns, plus an extra 40% all sale items, AND free shipping with the code TOASTY1xY3. Score! I just ordered this little trinket dish, this sweater, and plus my favorite candle.
