Holidays are expensive! Not only are you spending more on delicious holiday food for the masses but you’re also spending more on the ones you love the most. You work hard to provide for your family and friends especially when it gets closer to the holidays, but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to look and feel your best when it comes to all the parties you have planned. And thanks to thredUP, you don’t have to sacrifice anything to look fantastic at that special event.
I’ve talked about thredUP before but I continue to be surprised with the amazing clothing I can find at a fraction of the original price. I’ve shopped fall looks, winter looks and wedding season looks, and now it’s all about holiday looks! With Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, that means I’ll probably have 4-5 different parties. And even though I’m not huge into social gatherings, I will always be talked into it knowing that food will welcome me in. And with that many holiday parties comes just as many holiday looks. But who the hell wants to spend hundreds upon hundreds of dollars on multiple fancy looks that you won’t be wearing weekly? Not me! Luckily thredUP has thousands of secondhand holiday and cocktail dresses to help you find a look for every party! That means you can buy multiple dresses at the same price you’d buy just one dress at full retail price!
thredUP is the largest online thrift store where you can find more than 35,000 brands for up to 90% off the original retail value. They have some of my favorite brands like Express, White House Black Market, Zara, J Brand, Alicia + Olivia, and Nicole Miller. But they also have amazing high-end brands such as Gucci, Prada, Stuart Wietzman, Fendi, DVF, Kate Spade and so much more! And they make it incredibly easy to filter by size, color, price, and style so you can find what you’re looking for as quickly as possible.
thredUP is all about their customers so they work hard to triple inspect each item by hand to ensure all the clothes are like-new! I’ve purchased multiple dresses from thredUP and most of them even had the original tags still on them. When you place your thredUP order, you’ll receive a confirmation email with details of how much you save, then all your items will arrive neatly folded and packaged in thredUP’s signature polka-dot box. Plus thredUP offers free shipping on qualified orders and easy returns if you’re not completely happy with your item.
When I started searching for my own holidays looks, I quickly searched cocktail dresses and my settings were already saved so all the dresses in my size quickly popped up and before I knew it, I already had 3 perfect holiday dresses in my cart. My first dress was a quick find because it was so unique and incredibly affordable! This maxi lace Sage cocktail dress was originally $39 and I got it for only $18.99! Then I found an amazing ¾ sleeve striped Diane von Furstenberg dress marked down for $395 to $87.99. That’s saving $307!! Think about how much you could buy for your holiday party spread with $307! And for my last dress, I found the absolute cutest Sandro fit and flare dress marked down from $300 to $66.99, saving myself $233. And since I had saved so much, I decided to splurge on an amazing pair of heels that I knew would look great with many different winter looks! So I found a pair of stunning black and white checkered J. Crew heels for only $60.99! You know how much they originally cost? $268!! On this one order, I saved $767. Take that in for a moment. That’s so much freaking money! You could buy so many gifts for your friends and family, you could donate that money, you could buy a plane ticket to go see your family for the holidays…you could do SO much with all the money you save with thredUP!
With these three dresses and these amazing pumps, I will be able to dress up no matter what party we have on our schedule. I can throw a winter coat over a dress or dress it up with a velvet blazer or wear a pair of black leggings underneath to stay even warmer. And then all I have to do is style the dresses with jewelry and clutches that I already have in my closet. Boom. Holiday looks for all the parties are conquered! Shopping at thrift stores in the past was always a nightmare and searching through all the racks and shelves that were never actually organized made it close to impossible to find that one unique item.
