Here's a fact about me: I love a good bargain. You've probably heard me say that a countless amount of times, so it really shouldn't be that much of a surprise. But seriously, I'm all about functionality & affordability. That's why I was pretty excited when an opportunity to partner with thredUP* came about. ThredUp is an online store with like-new clothing from brands such as Michael Kors, Free People, Kate Spade, & more.

I have to say, I was pretty darn thrilled to get six items for $60. Here's what I got: Zara Basic Casual Dress, High Sierra Short Sleeve Button-Down Shirt, Kohl's Kimono, Mustard Seed Casual Dress, Carrie Allen Long Sleeve Button-Down Shirt, & Erika Short Sleeve Button-Down Shirt.


I waited patiently for the polka dot box to arrive & when it did, I strolled excitedly to the mailbox, gently picked it up, ran home, & opened it immediately. Everything was packed carefully & quite cutely, I might add.


As with anything in life, some of these pieces fit me like a glove & others not so much. That's just what happens when you buy clothes online. I've come to accept that not everything is going to look spectacular on my body type. However, I can already tell which of these garments will be on high rotation in my wardrobe. 


The Carrie Allen Long Sleeve Button-Down Shirt called my name ever since I first spotted it online. I tried it on & fell in love with it even more. The palm tree embroidery & embellishments are nothing short of amazing.


ThredUP mixes cost-effective, like-new clothes with the added convenience of never even having to leave your home. That sounds pretty swell to me. I'm so happy to have some new versatile items to add to my wardrobe. Stay tuned for upcoming outfit of the day posts!
