I just love the concept. All I have to do is pay $20, and a stylist will hand-pick a box of clothes specifically for me… and then conveniently deliver it to my house. For the past two years, Stitch Fix has been a wonderful part of my life and I have happily recommended it to all of my friends (and you, dear blog readers).
But recently, I’ve had a little beef with Stitch Fix. I mentioned in my July review that I was going to take a little break from my monthly subscription. Frankly, I wasn’t happy with the personalization I received, I didn’t like the items selected for me, and even basic pieces were so damn expensive. So, I hit pause for a few months.
In October, I scheduled another Stitch Fix box specifically for my trip to San Diego. I was meeting my husband out there after his company meet-up, and would be introduced to his colleagues for the first time. I wanted to look appropriate… and Stitch Fix failed me. It failed so hard that I didn’t even take photos or write a review.
Am I done with Stitch Fix forever? Not quite. In fact, I scheduled another box for next month because I have another occasion that calls for a stylist. But my recent rocky experiences DID lead me to search out other options.
Friends, this is where I tell you about my absolute new favorite place to buy clothes… for cheap. You have been warned.
ThredUP is my new addiction. It’s contagious, FYI. I know this for a fact because my mom and sisters now have polka dot boxes arriving on the daily too (this is why I warned you). ThredUP is exactly nothing like Stitch Fix, but it sure has filled that void in my life!
Doesn’t everyone have a need for pretty boxes of clothes to show up on the doorstep?
ThredUp is a site that sells used/practically new/new with tags designer clothes and shoes for women and kids. I’m talking Kate Spade, Prada, Nike, Betsey Johnson, Tory Burch, Coach, Janie & Jack, Hanna Andersson, etc…. for 60-80% off the retail price.
I just bought a Gap wool winter coat, with tags, for under $20. My mom bought a pair of Coach flats that still had the stickers on the bottoms. I have purchased two pairs of Nike running shorts for $8 a piece, and you can’t tell they have ever been worn.
Did I mention they carry maternity clothes? Like, cute maternity clothes? That’s amazing news for you preggos out there, because I remember all too well how UGLY maternity clothes can be.
Inventory changes pretty rapidly. I look at the thredUP app like three times a day, and always see new items (I have a problem, I know). So, if you see something you like, save it in your cart before someone else snags it up!
Oh, and here’s the best part…
If you’re new to thredUP, you can click through the banner above or any of the links in this post and receive $20. That’s like free money, people. Make an account, get $20 in credit applied to your cart. Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy.
Get to it, friends. Buy yourself something really nice with your free $20!
And remember – I warned you. Not my fault. 😉
You can also sell your practically new clothes to thredUP! I’ll write about that side of the site another day (spoiler: I wasn’t impressed).
*I was not compensated to write this post. I just really like to share my new favorite things with all of you! However, I will receive a small credit if you make a purchase through one of my links. All opinions are my own.
