Pink and Stripes with thredUP

I recently tried thredUP for the first time. I think I'm a little slow to jump on the bandwagon, but ordering online and I haven't always gotten along.  I never know what size to order, of if it'll fit right. However, I feel like I'm getting to know my body better, and the way specific brands fit, so when an Instagram friends shared a 40% off code with me I decided to take a chance. Honestly, I feel silly for not trying it earlier.  Like-new clothes + great prices = right up my alley.

When looking at thredUP, I immediately liked that I could search by my size and choose special brands to search as well, like my favorites such as GapMeronaLoftJ.Crew, and J.Crew Factory. I could also just choose to search tops matching my size and brand, or dresses, etc.  

 thredUP also let me search for a special item. I've really been wanting a leopard print skirt and ended up getting this one for $3.  Today I'm wearing another find, this brand new Gap blazer, which I picked up for $12.  If you're interested, there are a bunch of other cute Gap blazers available too.

The last piece I chose was a cute eyelet tank from J.Crew which set me back a whole $3.  Overall, I'm really excited about the shopping possibilities.  If you haven't signed up yet, you can sign up here to get $10 off your first order and I'll get a $10 referral credit too.  

Today's look was inspired by Andi at Just Another Smith. She wore it yesterday and I was excited to try it, being I'd just gotten my thredUp box and couldn't wait to wear the blazer.  I wore this with Grant to go the the movies.  I love the $2 summer movie special here and it's a nice treat for Grant. Are you wearing shorts today? Link up with Andi and I down below. : )

  8. Thred Up is the best! I find so many good things on there! But you are right about fit, after a few items that were not actually my size, I stick to brands I know!

  9. ThredUP is great! I love that they are partnering with bloggers right now. It's a neat concept and way to spread how awesome they are. I also really like twice clothing. Same kind of online thrifting design.

  10. I'm getting more and more tempted to try ThredUp. I am nervous for the same reasons you mentioned, but I think if I stick to the brands that I know, I'd be okay on sizing. Anyway, this looks like the exact same blazer that I got. Too funny! I love this look with those shoes!

  13. I am a thredUP junkie. I send them so much stuff that I've almost bought something that I actually sent in, hahaha. I got all of the women at the post office excited about it; they were writing the address down in their phones. Ahhh. Awesome. Anyway, pretty colored blazer!
