The Glory of thredUP
I recycle, I frequent thrift stores and second hand shops. Quite frankly, I would rather reuse something than to buy it new, plus, it's cheaper. I've been doing this my whole life. So when I found myself searching through thredUP, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and selection of clothes at my finger tips!
I've been on the hunt for a new pair of jeans ever since having Adler. I've gone up a size, and have one pair of jeans I've been wearing on repeat for two months. As I flip through Pinterest I am constantly drawn to the 70's inspired fashion. Bells & high waists are on my radar. I love me some good flares and bell bottoms rock my socks off. I searched "bell bottom jeans size 6" on the thredUP app. The heavens opened, cue the harps, so many glorious options! Jeans from all sorts of name brands (brands that I typically can only afford to window shop). The prices were amazing.
Once I found jeans I couldn't live without I searched "Free People tops." I zoned in on this glorious deep V bohemian sweater. Perfect for nursing in. Mine.
I ended up purchasing a pair of Hudson Jeans for$33.49 & the Free People pullover sweater for $29.99. These items would sell new for $295, without including shipping. Each item had a description of the garments condition, both of my items were "Practically New." The cost? A total of $63.48! That's a $231.52 savings. Say what!?
The jeans fit perfectly, like butta baby. They appear to never have been worn! Holy hell, why haven't I done this sooner!
Needless to say, thredUP has changed my life. I can go and purchase clothing for my husband, my two sons & myself all while saving a sickening amount of money.
Have you been eyeing a particular style of jean? Do you thrift? Where is your favorite place to purchase preloved items!?
Peace & Love my friends!
