Every day, I’m thankful to the Universe for finally providing some high-quality, easily accessible second hand shopping online. eBay only takes you so far before you lose all of your time and mind in the endless pages of listings. thredUP gets rid of all of that boring, not-clothing stuff and leaves you with consistently photographed, clearly sized products. I could go on like a 13 year old girl who just found out that Ryan Gosling was a thing, so if you want that, please let me know and I’ll fill your inbox.
Yes, I even have their iPhone app, like a true evangelist. (Don’t worry, their Android app is right here!) And despite the fact that they’ve handed me some shopping credits to do this post, I downloaded that app weeks ago and approximately zero people have asked me to mention it. I regularly browse it nightly TV-veg-out-sesh, during the commercial breaks.
Anyway, the challenge they gave me was to see how many gems I could find in thredUP‘s vast and wide inventory for under $100, total. If you’ve ever been on this website, you know that there are literally thousands of products under $8, so please imagine my giddiness and elation upon completing the long division required for me to realize that’s a lot of clothes.
As I mentioned, the challenge was to find as many gems as you could for under $100… I ended up spending $62 and getting five outfits out of it. I mean, at least five, but five with no repeatsies.
You probably recognize this first outfit from my recent review of JORD’s wood watches. This sweater is by Anne Taylor LOFT, and is my new summer favorite. It’s pretty darn sheer (obviously) and light, but the fabric and bold color makes it more exciting. I liked it a lot with this high-waisted skirt (which was already mine), I’m excited to try other pieces with it! This linen/cotton blend knit top was only $4.99.
