Shopping #secondhandfirst with ThredUP

I have to admit, I don't usually shop for used clothes now that I'm done growing and I can still fit into the same clothes that I've had for years!!  However, when I was asked to check their company out, I did.  And what as the first thing I found!?

A J Crew skirt that I had wanted so badly 2 years back, but had sold out in my size before I could purchase it!  This beautiful skirt was given the second chance to find a loving home, and I was given the second chance to add it to my wardrobe!!  So, even though I don't typically shop #secondhandfirst, my experience with ThredUP was a fantastic one!!

I also got this classy little black dress!! 

Y'all may not know this, because I try my best to wear color on the blog, but my favorite color is actually black {how Gothic and depressing does that sound?}  I have no less than 6 LBDs in my closet, but the truth is that any dress-loving girl could never have too many!!  Plus, I found this gem for only $6.99!!  And just look at how flattering that silhouette is!?  Even with the cost of some cute black wedges, a dress for only $7 from ThredUP could fashionably dress you for under $40!!

And last, but not least, I found this top!! {though, I did buy it thinking it was a dress}  I wouldn't normally wear a top this long, because I am so tall for a girl (5'7"), and I feel like this length of top messes with my proportions even more {which is why you will RARELY see me in a tunic style top with leggings, just FYI}, but honestly, when I added the thin gold belt, it made it look OK again, especially since that also had a slimming effect LOL + I always add heels!!

But really, we aren't talking about the individual pieces themselves... I'm trying to tell you what ThredUP has to offer!!

Take Home Points:

1. ThredUP is even good for those of you that don't usually shop second hand!  Because, guess what!?  I found a skirt I had actually really wanted 2 years prior, in my size, and for only $11!! Plus, they have a bunch of goodies with the original tags still on, if you're patient enough to hunt for those!! {which I'm not}

2.  I got 3 items, plus tax and $5.99 shipping, for a whopping $28!!  And since the skirt and shirt could technically be worn together, I got 2 outfits for $28 **Holy Moly that's a steal**

3. How did I accomplish that you may ask!?  Well, they CONSTANTLY do 30 or 40% off!!  So my advice would be to NOT buying anything from them unless they have one of those promotions going on, because, like Loft, they will do it at least once a month! 

4.  They also have a "closet cleanout" program where they send you a prepaid bag, for free, that will hold a laundry basket full of clothes!  And they pay you for the clothes they want!!  Gently used, name-brand stuff {just like everyone else, but this is better because you don't have to wait in line like at Plato's Closet, for instance}!  I just shipped mine 2 days ago, and will update you through my Instagram story {@ademurelife} on how it works out!!!

Y'all have a fantastic rest of your week!!

These clothes were given to me free of charge by ThredUP, but all thoughts are my own!
