thredUP Style

I have always loved shopping at consignment, thrift & vintage stores because 
you can find such unique pieces that no one else will have (not to mention the money you save!).  Which is why I'm so excited to share with you today about an amazing site called thredUP.  They are an online fashion resale store that sells like-new secondhand clothing, shoes & accessories for up to 90% off retail prices.  thredUP gave me a style challenge & provided me with a shopping credit - I was tasked with putting together outfits using pieces from their site.  I could not believe how many amazing designers they had (BCBG, Paige Denim, Equipment & Vince, to name a few) and everything in pristine condition...some even new with tags!

In addition to their already expansive store, they just announced that they will soon be adding a handbag shop + launching the new thredUP X later this spring, which will feature an exclusive collection of premium pieces from designer brands like Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch & more!  You can sign up here to receive a $5 shopping credit & be the first to get access to the new site.  Even better, help spread the word & you'll receive an additional $5 credit for every friend who signs up!  Interested in cleaning out your closet & earning a little extra cash?  You can find out all about their selling process & order your first clean-out bag here.

Their inventory is quite extensive so it took some time browsing to find the items I was looking for.  I decided to create 3 separate outfits, using shoes & accessories from my closet to finish off the looks.  I still cannot believe that I was able to buy these 8 pieces for under $200!  Not only does thredUP have an amazing selection & incredibly affordable prices, but their shipping was so speedy & the packaging made it feel like I'd purchased from a luxe boutique.  Everything was in impeccable condition when it arrived and I couldn't have been happier with the items I purchased.  Take a look at the outfits I created and let me know in the comments below which look is your favorite. Don't forget to sign up & check out their site to find your own amazing deals!
