A few weeks ago I received the cutest polka dot box in the mail. It was full of several fun finds I picked up from thredUp. If you remember and shopped the very first thredUp website then you really owe it to yourself to head back over there and check out everything they have done to make it even nicer. I have to say that it was truly a joy to shop and I was surprised at just how many great finds there were at excellent prices.
When it comes to back to school shopping for me (I work as a school counselor) I truly hate it. Here’s the deal, I don’t like to spend money and I want to make sure I buy versatile items so that I can pair them accordingly in order to stretch out my wardrobe. What that means for me is that there is usually no money left over for the fun splurge items. You know, we all have a few of those items we see that just do not seem practical but we really want. So, when thredUp contacted me about checking out the website and seeing what I could find, I was thrilled at the outcome!
thredUp has all of the brands that I love like: LOFT, Banana Republic, Gap and Free People. When I did a quick comparison, the prices were significantly less than the stores. thredUp says that their clothes will always be up to 90% off the original price which makes me happy. What I also noticed is that their prices are even better than some of my favorite boutique consignment stores. Win/Win!
For $100 I purchased: 1 Banana Republic blouse, 1 LOFT dress jacket, 1 LOFT blouse, 1 Banana Republic 3/4 sleeve shirt, 1 LOFT cocktail dress, and 1 black peacoat from LOFT. That’s a lot of stuff for $100! The best news is that it all fit because I knew what size I wore in those brands of clothing.
