My favorite Frugal Fashion Finds from ThredUp
My favorite Frugal Fashion Finds from ThredUp

Disclaimer: ThredUp gave me a discount coupon to get some my favorite frugal fashion finds in the post. However, I’ve been a ThredUp customer for several years and use them regularly. Also, it’s also part of a challenge where a group of us bloggers wrote about some of our favorite things.  Be sure to check the links for that, below!

David and I recently went on our “honeymoon.”  When we married nine years ago, we blended two families. Four kids and juggling ready-made family schedules didn’t lend well to a newlywed vacation.  Besides, we flew from Minnesota to Florida so we could get married surrounded by our closest friends and family.  After buying six plane tickets, a second trip was really out of the question.

Isn’t that the way it frequently goes, though? We were finally able to make that trip – just the two of us – after ten years of being together.  We visited Epcot Food and Wine Festival at Disney World and had a fantastic time! This year marks Epcot’s 35th anniversary, and Disney put out 35 booths from all over the world.  We dined. We wined. We got hot and whined some more.  Ha! We are Floridians, though, so we can take it.

Also, since I am the family shutterbug, I am always behind the camera taking photos. Therefore, very few pictures exist of David and me together. So, he suggested that we invest in Disney’s PhotoPass and that I leave my DSLR behind. *GASP*!  My first thought? I want some new clothes so I can look good in our photos – but I didn’t want to trim the vacation budget to do so.  Then, I remembered ThredUp.

Favorite Frugal Fashion Finds – AND a 50% off discount

ThredUp is one of my favorite places to shop for clothes. I get designer clothing (like BCBG) for pennies compared to the original price. ThredUp specializes in reselling pre-owned women’s and children’s clothing on a consignment basis.  However, everything I’ve ever gotten from them appears brand new.  Some of my clothing orders even arrived with tags.

ThredUp is always my first recommendation for frugal fashions.  Also, if their low prices on high-quality clothes don’t intrigue you, how about a 50% off coupon? Just enter WOMENS50 at checkout to get an unprecedented 50% off your first order (Expires 12/2017).  Also, when you sign up, you get $10 credit! Already a ThredUp customer? I got a code for you, as well. Just use WEHEARTYOU20 for 20% off your entire order until May 2018.  Also, if you use their app to shop, you get free shipping on any order. I am not sure when that offer expires, but I’ve been taking serious advantage of it.  Look in the footer of ThredUp’s site to download it from Google Play or iTunes.

Another place I like to find frugal fashion at our local thrift store. The Waterfront mission feeds homeless people in our local area and provides them with temporary shelter. Lastly, check Amazon for cheap clothes. I have seen new garments there for as low as $1.

So, what did I get?

By the way, these clothes would not be nearly as cute without David by my side to make them look good! I got mostly summer clothes since Orlando celebrates summer persistently. However, I’m ready to start checking out some of ThredUp’s women’s fall Boho styles, too.  Or, some of these T-shirts to go with my jeans and denim shorts. Hmmm…. My shoe collection is a little barren. Maybe some fall boots? I could use some frugal fashion finds for fall – or maybe even the Christmas holidays!

Disney Studios

I just love this top! It’s stylish and comfortable.  I’m also in love with the embellished details.  Honestly, I felt like I was wearing PJ’s all day. Typically, this set would cost over $50. I got it for $17 total.

Magical Frugal Finds for the Magic Kingdom

Check out the detailing on this beautiful Boston Proper halter top! The exquisite beadwork draws attention. It usually retails for $48. Since I am short, I frequent Ann Taylor’s Loft line. At $55, these shorts are generally out of my price range, but I got them for $12.

I’m also not going to complain about the shoes. I practically stole them at just $7.   If you’ve seen my shoe collection, you know I didn’t need any more shoes – but that phrase should be stricken from the English language in my opinion.

Even Tinkerbell thought this was a magical day!

Animal Kingdom

I wore this Tramp top I got from ThredUp for just $4.99. Now, that’s a great deal! It is sheer, so I layered it over a spaghetti strap top I got on Amazon. I picked up the shorts at the thrift store for about $5.  ThredUp has many great fashion tops at great deals.

Epcot Food and Wine Festival

Ok – ignore my walking shoes in the photos below. According to Fitbit, I walked over 20,000 steps a day. On our last day, my dogs were barking, and I opted for tennis shoes instead. However, David loves this Max Studios top. I was reluctant to try it because I don’t wear yellow wear usually.

Yet, ThredUp has a no-hassle return policy. If I don’t like it, they will give me store credit and even pay for the shipping to return it. But, I ended up loving it – and decided to keep it. The shorts are also keepers.  I got the Max Studios top for just $10.99 and paid $4.99 for the 2.1 denim shorts. That’s insane pricing on Max, by the way.

Recap

I love my new frugal fashion finds! I cannot believe I got an entire wardrobe for just $57 before tax! That’s crazy! ThredUp carries women’s sizes from XXS to XXL. They also sell specialty sizes like Maternity, Petites, and Juniors. They just added jewelry to their accessory line and started a high-end Designer category for brands such as Coach and Kate Spade. Be sure to check their children’s clothes, as well.

I am totally stoked by these frugal fashion finds! I love saving money on clothes!

    This post had me feeling a little homesick and looking to book a flight into OIA ASAP. Every time I go back home to Orlando, I always make sure to do some shopping. You can truly get some name brands on the low. I took shop at LOFT and always seems to find 40-50% off at the store.

    • Alicia Taylor

      October 23, 2017 - 9:20 am

      I didn’t get these in Orlando. I got them to wear in Orlando. I love shopping there, though. Now, I live in a small town where the most fashionable item is an Alabama Tide or Florida Gators cap. LOL. That’s why I love Thredup. I have options I wouldn’t ordinarily have.

  • Krysti Jaims

    I love everything you got! Very trendy and such a great price too. I’ll be sure to check them out.

    Congrats on the great trip out there. They have a festival like that at the California Adventure park for Disneyland out here. It’s always a lot of fun. But I would love to visit the Epcot one in the near future.

    • Alicia Taylor

      I have never been to Disneyland – but I really would love to.

    Those outfits are perfect! I was born and raised in SW Florida, living in SE Texas now, so I am always on the hunt for nicer-looking sleeveless shirts since it’s hot almost year round! I love all of these that you shared!

  • Candy Rachelle

    You have a beautiful tops. You look gorgeous to it. What I really want the most is the first one and the 2nd one. Perfect for outfit for summer.

    • Alicia Taylor

      October 23, 2017 - 9:22 am

      Aww! Thanks! Well, they are perfect for summer – but I live in Florida, so I’ll probably wear them year round.

    Looking sassy and having fun at Walt Disney World, way to go! I have heard of ThreadUp but haven’t been convinced just yet. Ann Taylor Loft is great here in Orlando we have great finds at the outlets too.

    • Alicia Taylor

      October 23, 2017 - 9:23 am

      Yes – I used to love shopping the outlets. We have those same outlets up here in the Panhandle, too. The prices on ThredUp are better than the outlets, most of the time.

  • Joline

    October 20, 2017 - 9:49 pm

    These are great finds! I love finding designer pieces for a fraction of the price.

  • Rose

    I do shop our local thrift stores. I have heard of ThredUp but haven’t checked out the selectionary and prices yet.

  • Brittany Giles

    None of these outfits were really my style but you look amazing in them and who does not love a good deal!

    • Alicia Taylor

      October 20, 2017 - 3:10 pm

      The wonderful thing about ThredUp is that they have 1000’s of styles to choose from. And thanks!

  • lucicoo

    October 20, 2017 - 12:34 am

    Super cute outfits. I going to have to check out that website to see if there is anything there that I like.

  • GingerGoose Boutique

    October 18, 2017 - 9:42 pm

    These are some great finds! I am so happy to see that more and more people are jumping into the online consigning. I’ve been thrifting since I was a teen and you can find so many great things and awesome outfits!

    • Alicia Taylor

      October 20, 2017 - 3:12 pm

      I’ve been thrifting since I was a kid, too – I’m 46 now – and still do it. I’m glad online is an option – and strongly encourage it.

    How ironic! I’m also married (third time’s the charm!) to a David, and we also never had a honeymoon when we got married about 11 1/2 years ago! We did go to Punta Cana in November 2013 for my middle daughter’s destination wedding, but we would love to go back by ourselves for a proper “honeymoon” without “kids” and family around!

    I love all your outfits and would wear them myself! I clearly need to check out ThredUp – I get their emails all the time and have yet to go to their site and check them out! Thanks for the incentive and the discount codes! 🙂

    • Alicia Taylor

      October 20, 2017 - 3:17 pm

      You are very welcome! and yes – that is Irony. David is my third husband (not sure I said that in my post, though – if not – more irony.) And yes – you definitely need a honeymoon without family. While your trip sounds like it was probably amazing – it wasn’t focused on you two as a couple.

  • Via Bella

    October 18, 2017 - 2:15 pm

    Can you reuse the 20% off code for any and all orders before May 2018? If so, that would be awesome!

    • Alicia Taylor

      October 20, 2017 - 3:17 pm

      Honestly, I am not sure! I don’t suppose it would hurt to try. If I can, I am going broke before Christmas! LOL

  • kristin

    October 18, 2017 - 1:52 pm

    ThredUp is so fun! I’ve sold with them a few times and love that they reduce our impact on the planet!

    • Alicia Taylor

      October 20, 2017 - 3:18 pm

      I’ve never sold with them. How was your experience with that?

  • Cynthia Salgado

    October 18, 2017 - 2:45 am

    The outfits are awesome and you guys make a very cute couple! I hope me and my husband can be that in love after 10 years! We didn’t have a honeymoon either, but sometimes that kind of thing can wait! By the way, love those photos with Tinkerbell and Remy, would love to do that!

    • Alicia Taylor

      October 18, 2017 - 12:15 pm

      We had an absolute blast – and thank you! We actually dated in high school. He joined the Navy and we both found different relationships. It is refreshing being back together. Every day is new and fresh.

  • Bree

    October 17, 2017 - 9:52 pm

    Wow that’s definitely smart shopping! I love good deals on clothes. All of your outfits are very cute! I especially like the yellow top. It looks like you guys definitely enjoyed your trip together 🙂

    • Alicia Taylor

      October 18, 2017 - 12:15 pm

      We had an awesome time – and thanks! I like the yellow top, too! My birthday is this weekend and I may wear it then.

  • Alecia

    October 17, 2017 - 6:27 pm

  • Nicole Aguilar

    October 17, 2017 - 5:24 pm

    I love all these looks, super boho and summery. I think the first look is my favorite. You pull it off well!

    • Alicia Taylor

      October 17, 2017 - 5:31 pm

      I’m a sucker for Boho, but usually restrict it to fall. I do love summer clothes almost year round, though!

  • adkinsdomain

    October 17, 2017 - 4:13 pm

    It is so important to shop around and find deals so as not to pay full price. Great money saving tips. I think it is awesome you share sales and codes with people to help them find the deals.

  • Liz Mays

    October 17, 2017 - 4:01 pm

    It’s awesome that you were able to find so many cute outfits for such good prices. I could probably use a wardrobe update!

  • Milena Barrett

    It’s October and I think I should buy everything you just showed because it’s a freaking sauna in Morocco; You would seriously think it’s still summer.

    • Alicia Taylor

      October 17, 2017 - 3:52 pm

      I live in Florida and it’s hot and humid here year-round. However, I’m pretty sure Morrocco has us beat!

  • Pam

    October 17, 2017 - 1:13 pm

    That is a lot of clothing for that amount of money. I love them all and they all look great on you. What a great find. I will have to try ThreadUp out.
