thredUP haul and shopping tips

Thanks to a few of you lovely ladies, I had referral credits for thredUP!! Thank you (you know who you are!) for using my referral link to try thredUP. I hope you loved what you got. And I’m loving my latest thredUP haul!

 

5 tops, 1 pair of flats, and sunglasses

 

I love a good top, and lately I’ve been buying up everything I can wear with leggings and skinnies and still feel like all the important parts are covered, know what I mean? I’m also into long necklaces as opposed to shorter statement necklaces, so the tunic length is appealing to me. 

 

all tunic, all the time

 

And in case you think neon shoes (new with tag, might I add) is a bad idea, I totally plan to wear them with 4 out of the 5 tops I bought. 

neon can totally be versatile

Seriously… these sunnies. Outside my tortoise shell comfort zone, and I love them! Love that Vince Camuto! 

   

In case you didn’t read my first post about thredUP, you can here, but read these shopping tips, first.

  • MINDSET: You need to think of this as a boutique consignment shop. Everything has gone through an inspection process, but these are previously owned items. Look in the description of the item to see if the item is in excellent condition or shows minor signs of wear. I have been pleased with the condition of all my purchases.
  • URGENCY: If you see something you love, get it NOW because it probably won’t be there tomorrow. You can put items in your cart and they will be reserved while you shop, but your cart will empty after a few hours (I’m not sure how many, but I know sometimes I go back to my cart and it’s all there and sometimes it’s not). For this reason, if I like something, I put it in my cart right away, then edit my cart at checkout, and I don’t wait to checkout for too long. If I have to stop shopping before I check out, I set an alarm on my phone to go back and finish shopping, or at least release the things I’m not going to buy so someone else can have them.
  • FILTER: Definitely use this feature to find clothing/shoes in your size. There are TENS OF THOUSANDS of items on the site and you’ll be browsing for DAYS if you don’t filter. I like to choose my dress size, waist size and shoe size so at least I’m only seeing items that will fit me. Make sure you check include equivalents because there are many European brands and their sizing is different.   
  • SEARCH: I’m so glad this is possible on their site. Have you ever been on a site where you can’t search keywords? Nightmare. And when there are thousands upon thousands of items on their site, searching keywords is a good idea. So if you want to see if thredUP has “gladiator sandals” or a “Kate Spade purse” or a “fringe dress”, you will not be disappointed!

If all of this has gotten you excited about thredUP, here’s a little something to start you out on your retail journey – $10 credit to use on your first order (and I’ll get $10, too). You have to use THIS link and you have to be a new customer. Happy Shopping!
