“What I love about thrifting is the creativity and how you can explore different sides of yourself through your clothes.” – ThredUp
If you follow me on Instagram, you have probably seen a polka dot package, or two +, from ThredUp in my instastories. Basically, it is an online clothing thrift store where you can buy, or sell, gently used brand name clothing.
Since I have been selling and purchasing for awhile, I asked if they would like to collaborate so I can share this great way to get second hand clothes, and get you a special discount code for first time orders (see below). In exchange for writing this post, they did provided me with a credit for some of the items here. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.
I’ve been thrift clothes shopping for years….cause I do love me some clothes (regular mom clothes- not super model stuff). Whenever I tell people I got something at a thrift store, I generally get the same reaction –
I never find anything at a thrift store. It’s too overwhelming. If I do find something, it’s not in the right size. The smell bothers me.
All the things that people tend to have trouble with in a typical thrift store are solved here:
- Shop From Home (no strange smells)
- Brand You Want
AND HERE’S THE #1 THING I LOVE ABOUT ThredUp:
It saves your sizes, and desired brands, so every time you are ready to shop you will only see the stuff you want to see. No more, I love that but it’s not in my size. Or, showing you stilt heels when you wear tennies.
You can search for handbags & shoes & dresses, oh my!
Here’s a recent package I got:
I started with the scarf and went from there. Blanket scarves are often thought of for the fall but they actually work really well in the spring when temperatures are up one minute and down another.
OUTFIT SHOPPING TIP – Start with one key piece and build around it.
One of the easiest ways to clothing shop on a budget, is to buy #secondhandfirst. Bonus – It’s less wasteful.
