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!
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.
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.
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.
