Now that fall is winding down and winter will be here in a matter of days, I can’t help but want to refresh my winter wardrobe! Last year when I lived in North Carolina, the weather was much colder than I had anticipated. Coming from South Florida, I didn’t have hardly any winter clothes at all! So I purchased a few sweaters here and there, and was freezing for much of the season. I pretty much wore my regular year-round clothes and layered like crazy. It was so impractical, and I remember shivering non stop in my classroom where I taught, freezing during carpool, and going numb during recess time.
Needless to say, this year I wasn’t about to let myself go cold. One of the biggest reasons I didn’t updated my wardrobe last year is because I am so cheap! I like my clothes to be good quality and last a long time. However, these type of clothes often come with a hefty price tag, so I can’t just go splurging every time I go to the store.
So I decided to pop over to ThredUp to see what clothes they had listed. ThredUp is an online thrift store with clothes, shoes, and accessories. I shopped there when planning for my trip to Hawaii and found the cutest dress (wore it here).
Here is the price I paid for the clothes, and the price they are originally.
ThredUp price: $14
I literally saved hundreds of dollars by using this website. And the clothes were in perfect condition. I get compliments on both of these pieces every time I wear them! I am officially hooked on ThredUp.
If you’re looking for winter clothes and you’re on a budget, or even if you have a large budget but you want to be wise with your finances, this is the way to go. And don’t feel overwhelmed when you see the thousands of clothes listed; simply plug in your size and your favorite brands, and start looking!
