It’s officially Christmas week! It’s time to finish those lists, check them twice… and also figure out something to wear come Saturday, Sunday… or even New Year’s Eve! If you’re still questioning what that special outfit could be… I have a fun option for y’all in terms of a super budget friendly way to get a fresh look with ThredUP!
To be completely honest, when ThredUP reached out to me to have me try out their site… I was skeptical. As y’all know, I’m extremely picky as to what I not only purchase and wear/use for myself, but I hold a really high standard as to what I want to feature for y’all on the blog! Because if I didn’t, my content wouldn’t feel authentic and genuine! And I always want my readers to know that the brands I’m featuring are ones that I truly love and would absolutely use again, and with my own money, in the future. That being said, I wasn’t quite sure how I was going to like clothes from a second-hand site as I had never used one before. What would the quality be? Would there be options for my sizing/style? Would they have brands I like/am familiar with? Would I be able to return something if I didn’t like it/it didn’t fit?
Well, when I really looked through ThredUP’s site, I saw how organized the product was featured, how easy it was to search for items, that the descriptions of the products being sold were detailed, and that their return policy was super easy, and how wonderfully affordable it was! So, I got to shopping! And guess what y’all… I LOVE WHAT I ORDERED!
I’ve been on the hunt all of fall for a reasonably priced faux fur vest that hit above the hip and I have consistently come up short! Any faux fur vest I’ve found that I have liked, has been really pricey. Ugh. I even had an expensive option on my Christmas wish list, but ultimately hinted to Santa that it wasn’t a top priority because I just didn’t looooove it enough for the price. But then, I found this beauty featured in today’s post for… wait for it… $22.99 on ThredUP! Aaaannnd… it was brand new, never-worn, with the tags! Such. A. Steal! So much of a steal that I had a little extra room in the budget to score the leopard blouse (brand is Zara) for $16.99, as well! And let’s face it, any form of leopard print is an instant friend of mine! So that’s right ladies, this vest and blouse combo from ThredUP cost a fraction of the price of what a normal faux fur vest would be! Isn’t that amazing?!
Now I can’t recommend ThredUP enough! I love that you can find deals on pieces that are currently on-trend and name brands. I love that you can plug-in your exact sizes when searching for clothes so that you only see options/product that will fit you. I love that you can even find brand new/never worn items! And I also love that if something were to arrive and you didn’t love it (hey, it happens to all of us!) you could easily return it. BONUS: the packaging your clothes arrives in is really cute! I always love that extra special touch with brands!
So with all of that said, I’m super excited to be able to share this outfit and new discovery with y’all today! Not only because I love this outfit (so much so that I’ve already worn it to a Christmas party after taking these photos and I will most definitely be outfit-repeating it again this coming weekend and probably after Christmas as well…), but also because I absolutely love to share budget-friendly style options! This lady may love her designer and high-end items here and there, but I’m all about steals and deals, especially when it comes to clothing!
If y’all hustle, you can score a find or two for yourself for a super reasonable price and get it by Christmas if you order by midnight tonight (December 19th)!
I know how tight budgets can be this time of year (right there with you!) so to know there is actually an affordable option for a last-minute outfit right now kinda feels like Christmas is coming a little early, does it not?! 😉
A big ‘thanks’ to ThredUp for reaching out to not only help me create this blog post but to also making my faux fur and leopard dreams come true! 🙌🏼
Happy second-hand shopping, ladies!
