Depop seller who sold Sabrina Carpenter her birthday dress is ROASTED for dramatically hiking up her prices - including listing 'vintage' Forever 21 shorts for a staggering $300

People on social media are aghast at a re-seller asking $300 for Forever 21 shortsThe Depop user wants hundreds for cheap 'vintage' items from the 2000s The same Depop seller sold Sabrina Carpenter her vintage Cache birthday dress 

Re-sale sites often try to profit as much as possible on vintage items, especially as Y2K fashion is all the rage - but one re-seller is now in hot water after significantly marking up her prices.

On TikTok and X (formerly Twitter), creators are poking fun at the Depop seller jbeescloset for the high prices she's requesting for 'vintage' items from the early aughts that were likely originally purchased for around $20.

Shoppers on social media are aghast after realizing the re-seller, who sold Sabrina Carpenter her 'vintage' Cache birthday dress, is attempting to get hundreds of dollars for a pair of 'rare vintage' Forever 21 shorts.

Commenters wondered if the items were really 'vintage' and questioned who would pay such high prices for clothing from mall chains.

Everything kicked off when US-based TikTok user Jules shared a video about how Sabrina Carpenter's stylist bought a yellow Cache minidress from her Depop shop for the popstar's 25th birthday party.

Most commenters simply adored the dress, with one writing, 'Dress is giving How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days,' in reference to the hit 2003 romcom.

However, one person proclaimed 'Cache is NOT vintage,' although vintage is technically clothing more than 20 years old, as another wrote, 'Vintage Cache *cries in millennial*.'

After one person asked how much Jules sold the yellow dress for, another super sleuth said, '$1,110 according to her Depop. Insane considering she paid $50 for it originally. Depop sellers are such a scam (coming from a Depop seller myself).'

Danielle Vermeer, who's behind the Teleport app, which is 'TikTok for thrifting,' tweeted about the conundrum and described 'Gen Z vs. Millennial descriptions on resale sites.'

'Millennial: sequin shorts I wore to the club with Jeffrey Campbell boots in 2011 = $15,' Danielle wrote on X.

Danielle joked Gen Z described the same shorts as 'vintage RARE Forever21 sequin leopard print shorts similar to viral vintage Charlotte Russe shorts = $298,' which is the exact description for the shorts in question.

The same sequined shorts originally sold for $22 according to a posting on the resale site Poshmark, where they're available for $15 instead.

Danielle explained that after more commenters went through the Depop seller's past purchases, they found that she was buying items and re-selling them for much more money - even though she claimed the items came from her own closet.

Jules bought blue Hollister shorts for $35 only to re-sell them for $93, which is a 166 per cent markup, as well as pink Hollister shorts she bought for $10 and resold for $88, which is a 780 per cent markup.

Jules is also selling Abercrombie & Fitch plaid pajama shorts for $98 and a dress from the same brand for $138, while a white ruffled skirt that couldn't have cost more than $50 at the time is now $135.

A Bebe mesh top is going for an eye-watering $198 and is described as 'Bebe vintage white sequin crochet vintage mermaid core tank top,' as opposed to a going out mall top.

Content creator Justine shared a video where she remarked, 'Y'all need to stay safe,' while calling out Jules and her high prices.

Internet investigators found out that the seller bought her own Forever 21 shorts after the controversy and re-posted them on her burner account to avoid dealing with people who were mocking her high prices.

Commenters had a field day calling out the 'vintage' seller.

'My thing is you can price whatever you want for something, doesn't mean anything until someone actually buys it. Technically you can mark as sold on Depop so we don't know the actual price it sold,' one person shrewdly pointed out.

'Depop isn't thrifting. Thrifting directly benefits a charity. Even the really bad ones (like Goodwill). This is just resale (like a Buffalo Exchange),' a commenter explained.

Another person said that the leopard shorts are all the rage again - and even a hit with one of Sabrina's backup dancers.

'One of the dancers for Sabrina (performed at Coachella) wears the leopard short. Idk if she bought them though,' one eagle-eyed Sabrina fan said.

While it's unclear where Sabrina's dancer procured her vintage Forever 21 shorts, they're certainly a hit 20 years later.

DailyMail.com has contact Jules for comment.
