How to Shop on thredUp, Part 2

It's no secret that I love thredUP. Last spring I wrote a post about how to shop and save on  thredUP, and I thought I'd create a follow-up post for my new readers, and to show off some of my favorite  thredUP finds. This past year I've gotten many of my favorite things in my closet from them. I've heard time and time again comments about the cool pieces I've found, but also how hard it can be for others to find anything "good." 

I think this is such a bummer, because there are gems on  thredUP just waiting to be found! Today I thought I'd share some tips with you all to help make shopping on  thredUP easier for you.

First, once you're on their website, it's best to utilize the column on the left-hand side.  You can search specifically by your size, it will also do size equivalent. If you select "medium" it will also bring up anything else that is size 8-10. I often find some really cool things simply searching by size.

Another way to search is to add in favorite brands and stores.  It'll save these for you too. When first shopping on here I only bought brands I was familiar with, as I was concerned about fit.  There has only been one time in which I've gotten something from  thredUP that didn't fit. Returns are easy and you'll get a refund on your card within about two weeks. 

I do like to search by brand though, as I know what to expect when I get clothes from a brand I know.

The third way to search is to enter a "key word" in the search box.  I found my favorite cream sweater, leopard print skirt, and denim jacket this way.  Before buying full price or in a store, I like to see what thredUP has. It's saved me a lot of money!

On the left there is also a way to search by category of clothes too. Say, you need tops, you can just search them in your size, etc. 

 thredUP has perks for users too. If you sign up using this thredUP link, you'll get $20 off your first order and I'll get a $20 credit too. Much of what I've gotten has been free because of this! 

Here are a few of my favorite thredUP finds:

                             Lumeire Dress                                                   J.Crew Dress

                                Merona Skirt                                                 Gap Denim Jacket

                            Everly Blouse                                                      Ann Taylor Sweater

This Kate Spade bag and these Betsey Johnson shoes

These clothes for our little girl. They are all Gap, Janie and Jack and Gymboree and they cost $5-10 each and most had tags!

So, what are you waiting for! Give thredUP a try, I promise you won't be disappointed!


  1. I guess I missed part one but I will make sure to read it now. Between you and Laura, you two are experts for ThredUp. I plan on joining in. Question for you, when you ship your clothes to them, you pay for shipping them there whether they take them or not, right?

    You have found some nice clothes for them and all those baby girl outfits are adorable. Didn't know they had stuff for kids, too.

  2. I love ThredUp! I have gotten so many great pieces from them!

  3. I need to try ThredUp! I've only heard good things about it.

  4. Wow!! this site seems super addicting!!

  5. Thanks for this. I really need to look into threadUP. It looks like they have some amazing selections.

  6. I've been hesitant about ordering from Thred Up but I really should give it a try. You've gotten some wonderful pieces I see!

  7. I can never seem to find anything in my size that I love, and the same with handbags. Sigh! Maybe the key is to check there more often?
