so i know many of you might remember my recent blog post on my tiny nyc closet and some ways i try to make it work being a city dweller with a small space but also an avid lover of all my clothes and the way they lend to self expression. in my post, i talked a bit about how i decide on what’s worth bringing into my closet and also how i try to make room for new things by rotating items and getting rid of things regularly.
following up on that post, i wanted to share a big game changer i discovered a few months ago when it comes to secondhand fashion, and that game changer is called thredUP. have you heard of or tried them out yet? they are the largest online marketplace to buy and sell high-quality secondhand fashion. and, they carry all of my favorite brands and designers like anthropologie, j.crew, kate spade, lululemon and mara hoffman always up to 90% off retail price!
i’ve partnered up with them today to show you a few of the pieces i found on their site recently, and also share a discount code with you for an extra 40% off your first order!
but first, let me tell you exactly why i feel like this secondhand online store sets itself apart from the rest. first of all, everything they receive they triple inspect to make sure every single thing on their site is in pristine condition. many of the things i’ve ordered so far have even come with the original tag still on the item! what i also admire about the site is that you can filter your search by brand as well as by size, color or price. this makes it easy for me to sift through all the pages of clothing (they seriously have so much!) really quickly since i know what brands i love and have an idea of what i’m usually looking for. and lastly, i’ll show you down below what their clean out kit looks like and how it works! but it’s the best part of thredUP in my opinion because they make the process of cleaning out your own closet a complete dream (which is wonderful news for us urban dwellers who have tiny closets and always are trying to find ways to manage that closet situation!)
i scored this darling wool heart alice + olivia sweater i’m wearing here for 79% off the original price and the condition looked brand new! also, this blue and black anthropologie sweater with the faux fur collar i’m holding up and wearing in some pictures below still had the original tags on it (original tags said it was $70, but even with the new tags on, i got it for $25! so, 64% off!)
but the best thing i found were these black 100% leather pedro garcia boots (you can see them below) that still had the price tag on the bottom that showed they were originally going for over $600 but i snagged them for $124. this is extra exciting for me because i struggle to find boots like this that fit over my ginormous calves (like seriously, it is always a problem), so i was extra excited to find these!
here is the darling wool heart sweater by alice + olivia that i got for 79% off the original price!!!! (originally $428, but was $86 through thredUP.)
like i mentioned above, probably the best news for a clothing hoarder like me though, was discovering the thredUP clean out kit which they send to you with return postage already in place, so you can fill it up with your “like-new” clothing that you no longer want or wear and just drop it off at your post office or place it on your front door for pick-up. then, you earn a cash comission from every piece they sell. the clothing items that don’t meet their quality standards are donated to a cause, so it’s a total win win, either way!
here are two big bags i filled up to send in that are full of clothing items i love but just don’t wear often enough or have room for any more. i actually decided while cleaning out my closet recently that i should probably always have a few of their clean out bags on hand at all times. lol. josh is going to be so happy!!!
and a quick close up of the pedro garcia boots because i still can’t believe what a good fit they are and what a deal they were. my calves are also very happy with them. ;)
thredUP is offering an extra 40% off your first order to the first 100 people who use the code LOVETAZA40 (discount up to $50.) if any of you give them a try, you’ll have to come back here and let me know what you think! they also have a huge selection of top brand children’s clothing so if you have little ones, it’s a fun place to browse and shop for the family as well!
thank you so much to thredUP for sponsoring this blog post.
