Need to freshen up your wardrobe or your kids’ wardrobe for spring and summer? Have your kids grown since last summer and you need to buy clothes for them for this summer?
I highly recommend checking out thredUP — especially if you’re like me and don’t love the process of having to go to multiple stores and shop for clothes! thredUP is the world’s largest online thrift store and is a great way to help you afford the brands and designers you might not normally be able to.
thredUP sells high-quality, practically new women’s and kids’ clothing and accessories, with a range of great brands to choose from at up to 90% off the original retail price! They have a HUGE selection of items — from baby clothes, kids’ clothes, and clothes for women.
I’m always impressed by the variety they offer and just the sheer number of items they have available on their site at any given time. It’s WAY more than you’d find at your local consignment sale!
Now, if the thought of them having so many different options to choose from feels like it might be overwhelming to you, I can guarantee you that it won’t be because their search features are so incredible. You see, they allow you to search by what types of clothes you are looking for, what colors you like, what brands you prefer, and/or what price range.
This allows you to really find exactly what types of things you are looking for quickly and efficiently — and saves you lots of time and frustration having to wade through pages of pages of items that aren’t your style, aren’t in colors you like, or are out of your price range.
I love getting great deals and shopping secondhand, but honestly, at this season of my life, digging through racks at the thrift store or going to garage sales just isn’t really my cup of tea. So I love that there are options to shop secondhand clothes online. thredUP is one of my favorite online sites to buy secondhand clothes.
thredUP prides itself on the “unboxing” experience. When you receive your thredUP box, all of the clothing items will be hand-folded with cute thredUP tags attached to each. The items are wrapped in nice tissue paper and delivered to your doorstep in an cute polka dot box.
We’ve ordered many, many clothes from thredUP over the years and many of the clothes we’ve ordered have been items we’ve worn over and over again.
One of my favorite ways to shop thredUP is to search for deals on high-quality brands I already know that I love and adore but would never pay full price for. For instance, you can choose from popular brands such as Lululemon, Gap, J.Crew, Express, Forever 21, H&M, Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, Anthropologie, and many more.
You can often find name brand items that are in like-new condition (or even new with tags!) — for up to 90% off the retail price! And my favorite thing is that they have lots of items for $5-8 each — and if you use the 40% off coupon code (below), you’ll be able to find some amazing deals!
Note: thredUP also offers an easy way to clean out your closet. You can check their website to see which brands of your secondhand clothes they take and what the payouts are. Simply order a thredUP Clean Out Bag, fill it with items you no longer want, and place it at your door for pick-up.
I needed to freshen up my wardrobe for spring/summer, so I ordered some new and like-new items from thredUP two weeks ago. I was so happy with some of my finds!
These J. Crew shorts were just $17.99 (originally $65!) and this Express Sleeveless tank was just $11.99 (originally $40!). Both of these fit me so well and are in great condition. I can dress them up or dress them down, depending upon the occasion. (See how I wore the Sleeveless Top today here.)
I love this purple Black Saks Fifth Avenue Sleeveless Top I found. It was just $16.99 (originally $60) and in excellent condition. I actually wore this on Sunday for Easter!
In all honesty, I wasn’t sure what I would think of this top, but I went ahead and got it because I knew that thredUP has a great return policy. If an item doesn’t fit you, you can log into your account within 14 days from when it’s delivered to say that you want to return it. You can then opt for free shipping if you want store credit or simply pay the price of return shipping to get a refund.
The purple Black Saks Fifth Avenue Sleeveless Top is perfect to wear with my very favorite find… these American Eagle white jeans!
I’ve told you all how jeans are a struggle for me. I’m short, but not petite. Small, but not tiny. So finding jeans that fit without being too long, too short, too loose, or too tight is a constant challenge. I have a few pairs that I wear over and over and over again.
So I was thrilled to find these American Eagle white jeans for just $14.99 (originally $50) in excellent condition. They fit me like a glove! They are a little long, but look cute when rolled at the hem. My only complaint is that you can see the pockets through them, but if I wear a longer top, you won’t be able to.
I already know that these will be jeans I will be wearing again and again and again this spring and summer!
