Hope you had a great week 🙂 I’m partnering up with thredUP today and I cannot wait to share my looks! I’ve blogged about thredUP before, so maybe you’ve already heard of it, but I’ve been obsessed ever since. If this is your first time hearing about thredUP, let me explain everything!
thredUP is an online store that has the best secondhand fashion. You can find all kinds of brands and designers, always up to 90% off the original retail price. This is an incredible site for fashionistas on a budget, or anyone! I’m always amazed at the items I find on thredUP.
I still love receiving my box because of the cute little polka dots and pretty packaging. thredUP takes the time to hand-fold your clothes, add tags, wrap it up in a nice tissue paper and finish it off with a sticker. They make the experience feel like Christmas.
What was inside of my box?
*J. Crew Jeans, *J.Crew Jacket, *Mossimo Crossbody Bag, *Merona Ankle Booties, *Cejon Scarf, *H&M Belt, *J.Crew Dress, J. Crew Pullover Sweater
If I were to go out and buy all of those items at retail price, I would spend a little over $536.99.
I got all of these adorable items for $146.00! Some of the items still had their original tags on them. I can see why thredUP customers have saved $40 million by shopping thredUP instead of retail. They really make it easy for you to afford brands and designers you might not normally be able to.
I wanted to pick out items that went well together so I could mix and match.
This is one of my favorite pieces in my order. I feel like everyone needs a powerful statement jacket and yellow is a good choice, especially in the fall. This is the J.Crew jacket I got for $37.99. It retails at $148.00! I used thredUP‘s search to find a yellow jacket and this one was the first to pop up. I love that you can choose colors, brands, sizes, and keywords when searching for items. It makes shopping so much more convenient.
The jacket can be paired with so many outfits. I decided to go with a striped theme. I found this adorable J.Crew dress for $19! It retails at $70. I can wear this dress all year round.
I added some accessories to my order to complete the outfit. I found a cute cross body bag for $15 that retails at $37 and a cute $9 scarf that retails at $24!
And a fall outfit wouldn’t be complete without booties! I’m obsessed with these olive colored booties. They were only $8.99…seriously a steal! They retail at $30.
I’ve always been in love with J.Crew jeans. They fit so perfectly and they are extremely soft. The downfall is that J.Crew jeans are pricy! I spend way too much on J.Crew jeans and I need to remember to look at thredUP‘s collection next time! These super comfortable jeans were only $30, which is a STEAL because they retail at $125.
Can you guys tell I’m obsessed with J.Crew? I’ve always loved their clothes and it’s so nice that I can find them on thredUP! This sweater is stretchy, perfect quality, and perfect for the fall and winter months. I’m in love with it! It retails at $80 and I got it for $27 🙂
So what about the clothes you don’t wear anymore? This is the second coolest thing about thredUP. You can order a thredUP clean out bag, fill it with the items you no longer want, and place it by your front door for pickup. You can consult with the website to see what they do and don’t take and what the payout is. It’s a great way to clean out the clutter and make some money while you’re at it.
Buying secondhand clothing and selling your secondhand clothing is so much better for the planet. Every Clean Out Bag sent to thredUP keeps 206lbs of CO2 from entering the atmosphere, saves 17,916 gallons of water, and keeps 24 items out of landfills! It was crazy learning that buying a single new t-shirt costs 5,000 gallons of water, 16 pounds of CO2, added waste to landfills, and added ink to our water supplies.
I hope you guys enjoyed taking a look inside my thredUP box and I highly recommend trying it out.
