My New Favorite Place to Online Shop
The LOC Collection
I’ve seen other bloggers post about thredUP for years and was excitedly intrigued when thredUP reached out to partner on a blog post. I dove into the site before agreeing, and it took about 35 minutes of being sucked in deep to searching the category of “Women’s Dresses” and seeing how low the prices are for like-new or even “new with tags” items for me to become a fan.
Not only was it exciting to see what was available in my size and style, but I also stumbled across items that I used to own (or still do!) that I love! There’s a particular Lou & Grey sweatshirt that my sister loves but I bought it about 3 years ago and I FOUND IT on thredUP in her size! I texted her immediately and I’m pretty sure she scooped it right up.
thredUP is the largest online consignment store offering high-quality clothing for women and kids. They carry top name brand and designers for up to 90% off retail, and are adding new items every day. When I was browsing, I could really tell they were thinking about the consumer when they decided how to organize the online store. You can search by broad or extremely specific categories, and you can even search just by brand. Huge racks of clothes in hundreds of brands would always turn me off from shopping consignment, but there’s none of that stress here.
My sister is getting married this summer, so I have a handful of springtime events to attend for her, like bridal showers and girls’ weekends, so I had those on my mind as I shopped. I also wanted to pick up a few nicer items for my boys since they tend to lack in that department. Being 2 & 3 years old they are pretty active, so I dress them pretty casual, sporty, and comfortable. I needed to have a “staple” dressy outfit that could get them through the spring.
Let’s start with my new favorite Sunday styling for me and the kids, shall we? Well, let’s actually start with how much money I saved on each item because almost every single one of the items you see below were “new with tags” and in excellent condition.
I’ve been eyeing the bomber jacket trend on other style bloggers I follow, and I was so thrilled to find that lightweight black and white stripe one by Juicy Couture. It was originally $348.00 and I got it for $79!
Is it just me or do my kids look 5 years older when they are dressed up in collared shirts?
I also found some great spring and summer dresses that I can wear to my sister’s bridal shower and so many other places. A cinched waist looks best on my figure, so I was looking for exactly that. On that note, that’s another thing I liked about browsing thredUp. When the current trends don’t always work in your favor, like the short and boxy shirts that seem to be everywhere right now OR the crop top, you can be sure to find classic, wardrobe staples that transcend any season.
The dresses I found were from J.Crew Factory, Madewell, and Broadway and Broome, which was a brand sold at Madewell for a time.
(Stripe J.Crew Factory dress was $20.99, down from $70.00; The green Madewell dress was $53.99, down from $179.00; and the Broadway and Broome dress was only $16.99, down from $143.00!)
I also found a really cool vest that I couldn’t pass up from BCBG Maxazria that was originally about $650.00 and I got it for $127.99. That’s crazy savings.
Since this first box was delivered, I’ve now been searching the site for some shorts. I’ve found that Madewell shorts fit me pretty well, so if I can find some like-new or gently used on thredUP, I’ll be a happy girl.
