If there's one thing you should know about me and shopping, it's that I absolutely hate paying full price. I am always on the lookout for a better deal. Before I commit to buying something, I make sure to scour the internet for any possible way I could get a better deal. I love buying secondhand clothing, especially if it's a brand that I already know and love. I'm one of those people that prefers to shop online than in store, so thredUP makes all my wildest consignment dreams come true!
ThredUP is a site that offers like-new brand name clothing at crazy affordable prices. Did you know that thredUP customers have saved $40 million by shopping their site instead of retail? That's amazing!
While thredUP has a lot of merchandise (which is a great thing!), their website makes it so easy to find what you want without digging. With fall coming up in a couple months, I had the chance to grab myself a few items to keep wearing throughout the summer and autumn. Since I love wearing dresses, I filtered my search with 'dresses', and then also my size. I was able to find so many cute things, it was hard to narrow it down on what to get ;) The convenience really helps to save me time and energy, since each item is unique and I don't want to fall in love with an item that I know won't fit me.
I ended up finding FOUR dresses that I love for UNDER $50! They are all in amazing condition, and I love the colors of all of them. I can wear them in the summer, but they can totally be made into fall clothes by adding a layer or two. I saved 76% ($144.04) just by shopping on thredUP! I'd say that is an AMAZING deal! I've been saving my money for an upcoming trip, and I am definitely taking these dresses on that trip :)
Here are the four items I got:
top left: In Style dress, originally $24. 60% off retail for $9.49
top right: Lumiere dress, originally $119.00. 81% off retail for $21.49
bottom left: Sara Morgan for Haband dress, originally $24. 70% off retail for $6.99
bottom right: Forever21 dress, originally $23. 65% off retail for $7.99
grand total of $45.96!
I'll be posting about the red dress and the green dress with more details soon. I love them!
The only thing I love more than shopping is saving on shopping ;) And here's some good news - you can save even MORE by using the discount code WOW40 at checkout for 40% off your ENTIRE order. If you like brand name styles for less, pick secondhand first with thredUP!
