My thredUP- Online Thrift Store Review
Do you enjoy shopping secondhand clothes in stores because you get a thrill out of finding your favorite brands at discounted prices? Maybe you are in the mood for lounging around in your pajamas, but you want to refresh your wardrobe with the newest trends for summer season. You can have your cake and eat it too! Now you can shop secondhand clothes from thredUP, the largest thrift store online.
Really? There’s an Online Thrift Store?
If you’re wondering how does thredUP work. I’m here to share my experience and the run down on the process and my thoughts on the quality of the clothing that I purchased. thredUP offers a wide selection of clothing, shoes and accessories for women and children (boys and girls). There’s hundreds of new arrivals with each browser refresh, so there is always something for you.
Thrift Store Shopping Made Easy
After having a baby, my goal was to revamp my summer wardrobe with bold prints and pieces that are effortlessly chic without compromising comfort. I was on the hunt for the perfect a-line dress that complimented my physique. thredUP’s large selection of dresses and the option to narrow my searches, according to dress style and print types, made the thrift store shopping process seamless (compared to searching through disorganized racks in-store – which can sometimes become daunting). I laid my eyes on this Zara floral print ruffles dress that is the perfect blend of my bohemian/chic style. According to thredUP this dress was in “excellent condition. You might mistake it for brand new!” Also, the cost was 1/3 of the retail price. What a deal, as I quickly added it to my cart to hold for 24hours.
Vacation Ready Secondhand Clothes
My shopping adventures continued as I browsed through the denim, and tops collection. With BBQs and summer trips in store, I knew I had to find a new pair of high-waisted shorts that were more fitted than the oversized mom-style that I currently own. Remember I wanted to add more prints to my wardrobe? I found the perfect lightweight GAP floral button-down in the perfect pink shade. Thank you thredUP for the $30 that I saved from this secondhand find. By the way, the top and shorts were listed as “like brand new” – which upon arrival was the case.
Was Each Item as Described?
Every item was as described upon arrival. They looked brand new, and smelled fresh (which I know is something you question when ordering secondhand). The thredUP team ensures each clothes are ready to wear out of the box!
Wondering How I Styled My New thredUP Finds?
I cuffed the sleeves of the Gap button-up shirt and wore tucked into the high-rise shorts to accentuate my curves. I added an edgy touch to my look with the Shoe Mint flats, that I also purchased from thredUP. I love that you can easily go from a casual day look to dinner with friends by swapping the flats with red H&M heels (also, purchased on thredUP).
thredUP has proven to be a great way to shop high quality clothes at an affordable price. They truly have reinvented the thrifting experience and I would not have it any other way.
In collaboration with thredUP – All thoughts are my honest opinions.
