Five years ago, I sold my first batch of used clothes from my closet to ThredUP. ThredUP is an online thrift store that buys and sells clothing and accessories.
I enjoyed my selling experience with ThredUP so much, I started buying clothes from them and I’ll be honest here: I have NEVER been disappointed!
I’ve purchased regular clothes for work and weekends, but have also purchased workout clothes and travel outfits (including thermal tops for my Iceland trip that keeps getting postponed).
So far this year, I’ve already purchased a pair of Ugg boots and a Kate Spade purse. Not only have I saved hundreds of dollars on these items, but I’m also supporting a business that’s eco-friendly. I get to buy and wear cute clothes without contributing to environmental problems caused by fast fashion. I am telling you… ThredUP is the best and this is NOT sponsored.
What is a ThredUP Goody Box?
A Goody Box is a box with 10-15 items picked especially for you — in your style and price range — delivered to your doorstep.
Keep what you want, send back what you don’t want. The $10 styling fee will be applied to any item(s) you decide to keep.
How does the ThredUP Goody Box work?
I started by taking a quiz to give the stylist an idea of the kinds of things
I might want in my Goody Box. The quiz asks you about your style and desired price range. It also asks if you’re looking for specific items and
what your specific style is.
There’s a place for you to put notes if you have specifics. You can also share any Pinterest boards you may have that would help the stylist. If you use the “favorites” feature in your ThredUP profile, they will also look at the items you favorited to guide their choices.
For my Goody Box, I wanted a mix of professional wear (I said i was looking for an oversized blazer even though I have nowhere to wear it) but mostly comfy clothes to wear at home. I picked the mid-level price range.
What was in my ThredUP Goody Box?
There were 13 items in my Goody Box! I was so excited to open it and immediately loved some of the items I pulled out. Here’s exactly what was in my box:
- Michael Kors pullover turtleneck sweater, camel | $20
- Tahari blazer, black | $27
- Lucky Brand corduroys, wine | $21
- Hollister cropped quarter zip, mustard | $16
- Gap Body henley, gray | $16
- Michael Kors dress pants, black | $15
- Philosophy Republic leggings, black pebbled | $15
- Calvin Klein leggings, black | $15
- Ann Taylor Loft v-neck tunic, gray | $15
- Maurices knotted top, gray | $15
- Adrienne Vittadini scoop neck top, white | $17
- Good American jeggings, white stripe | $38
- Cuddl Duds active shirt, black | $16
I kept about half the items, including the Good American jeggings (I was sooo excited for these), Adrienne scoop neck top (a great basic), Calvin Klein leggings (they have metallic branding on the ankles that I couldn’t pass up), Ann Taylor tunic (so soft and brand new), Hollister quarter zip (love everything about this top), and the Lucky Brand Cords (these will be so cute for fall).
The clothing I kept totals out to be $123 and they’ll apply my $10 deposit, for a total of $113 — YES. If I would have purchased these same items from a store, it would have cost $486 — I mean… wow!
I honestly loved this Box and the entire process. I will definitely be ordering another one soon!
