3 Reasons to Second Hand Shop with ThredUp


I’ve been poppin tags long before Macklemore only had $20 in his pocket. 

Thrift store/second hand shopping was a way of life for me growing up. It was also a necessity during my college years. I love clothes and shopping, but I also had to pay for boarding, books, and tuition. Second hand shopping gave me the ability to shop without breaking my budgets.

Here are three reasons why I love secondhand shopping and why you should try secondhand shopping too!

1.   Save Money
Secondhand shopping is incredibly gently on your budget. You’d be surprised how far $30 -$50 takes you. This embroidered Ella Moss dress was originally $198 and I snagged it from ThredUp for literally $24! That’s a $174 savings. There’s no way I would have bought this dress for almost $200…so I was so excited when I got it at an 87% discount!


2.   Stay on Top of Trends
Trends these days come by so fast that it can be hard to keep up with them – especially keep up with your budget. Instead of trying to keep up with every trend out there, I select a few that work for my style.



One of my favorite trends this season is embroidery. I love the embroidered bomber jackets and shirts making their way through the fashion scene. I specifically had this trend in mind as I was going through ThredUp. When I found this embroidered dress, I knew I needed to have it. It wasn’t the typical embroidered flowers or birds, but the patterned embroidery really caught my attention.

Here are a few trends to watch for this season when shopping secondhand:

  •                                     Camo or leopard prints
  •                                     Off the shoulder tops
  •                                     Bell sleeves


3.   The Thrill of the Shopping Hunt
I love secondhand shopping both in person and online. I love finding new treasures especially if they are affordable! I honestly get so excited finding a great deal and refreshing my wardrobe for the season.

To me, secondhand shopping is such a fun way to shop and save. I recently discovered and collaborated with ThredUp for this post. I absolutely love their site because you can find both designer, casual, work wear, accessories and more on their site. I didn’t realize that I could secondhand shop from the comfort of my own home! ThredUp is now one of my go to places to find great secondhand items.
