Summer Shopping Challenge

09 Jul 2014 Permalink

ThredUP has been my favorite online resale shop since I was introduced to them last summer.  They’re basically an online thrift store…minus the hassle that of thrifting!

This summer I was lucky enough to participate in thredUP’s shopping challenge – $100 budget to see how many great pieces I could find!  I was almost tempted to blow all the cash on one designer dress (from their lastest X Collection), but I found 5 items to mix and match with what I already have in my wardrobe.

Here’s what I found…

I especially love the two Calvin Klein pieces.  This dress retailed for $140…I got it at 78% off!  And the skirt still had tags on it.  Yes, tags!  Besides for the awesome price, the items fit perfectly!

Anyway, here’s how I’ve been wearing my thredUP pieces…

Calvin Klein skirt from it at 76% off retail!

I haven’t had a chance to wear the Enzo Angiolini heels yet…but they’ll be used at an up-coming date night soon!

All of thredUP’s inventory is hand selected.  It’s in mint condition, too!  My husband didn’t believe me when I told him that these items weren’t brand new (well, minus the skirt)…that’s how great the pieces are!

Have you given thredUP a try?  I’m such a fan!  Make sure to click on their link from my sidebar so that they know Knocked Up Fabulous sent you.

    I definitely agree! ThredUP has some excellent quality clothes for reasonable prices (talk about almost 80% savings!). I love that some of the items also have tags in them and yet are really affordable 🙂

    Those are great finds. I especially love that dress. I haven’t tried ThredUP yet, but given my love of thrifting, I obviously should!
