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 thredUP...got 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.

Over the summer I had my first exposure to thredUP and I’ve been hooked since!

thredUP is basically on online resale shop.  You can buy, or sell, like-new women’s and kids’ clothes.  And I can honestly say that the clothes are in excellent condition.  (My husband was even surprised at the quality!)

Saving the best from this week for the last!

For me, one of the coolest things about thrifting is coming across top designer pieces.  This Diane Von Furstenberg dress from thredUP immediately caught my eye.  In perfect condition for around $40, it was one of the first items that made it into my cart.  (You can’t even get this dress that cheap from ebay.  I checked.  It sells for $139 there.)

But, another factor for me is wearablilty.  Can I wear it more than one way, or for more than one occasion?  The top pictures show a more casual side.   The bottom pictures show a dressier version.  The dress itself is a loud piece, so for both occasions, I just let the accessories play the supporting role.

Who doesn’t enjoy a comfy pair for pants for work?  My trick for not looking sloppy?  Make sure to wear a structured top…a pointy heel helps too!
