ThredUp: Designer Brands at a Discounted Price


Have you heard of ThredUP? I discovered it a couple of years ago. It is a great place to buy and sell new & slightly used designer brand clothing and accessories.

I have purchased items as well as sold items through ThredUP. I love the cost savings of having a higher quality item without the huge price tag. There is something in every price range. Inventory changes out quickly so you need to keep checking back on the website to see if the products/brands you are looking for become available.

I have sold items on ThredUP as well. It is a great way to make a little extra cash with items you don’t use and are just sitting around not being utilized. I have sold several handbags and scarves just recently. Who couldn’t use a little extra cash?

ThredUP is free as there is no fees to belong to this site. You just sign up with your email address. I have provided a referral link. If you sign up for free to see what products ThredUp has for sale through this link, I will receive $10 and you will receive $10 off your first purchase.  ThredUP Give$10, Get $10

The ThredUP Give $10, Get $10 is applicable to you as well! It is a refer a friend reward. Every time you refer a friend and they purchase something within 30 days of referral, they will receive $10 off their order and you will get a credit for $10 towards your next order. What a great way to share the love!

Items are brand new with tags or slightly used and will be noted as such. They do check for authenticity of items as well. Check it out! Maybe there is something available that you have been waiting for!

Scarves and Pashminas Haul

027 028 031036I scored some awesome deals on end of season items. I got some awesome scarves and pashminas for next fall/winter.

I purchased some of these from Thredup; American Eagle; Ann Taylor, Ralph Lauren; Express; Forever 21; Club Monaco; Banana Republic; Paula BiancoJ. Crew; and Christopher & Banks.

This first photo shows the awesome pashminas. (Two in pink, one plum, and one black and silver)

The second photo shows the awesome cashmere scarves I purchased. (One brown, one royal blue, one pink, and one charcoal, gray, and white)

The third photo shows some knit and acrylic scarves. (Royal blue, aqua, blue, peach and coral, and black)

The last photo shows come awesome scarves I picked up at Christopher & Banks. (Hot pink, black infinity, and hot pink and white)

I will not be keeping all of these for my own personal use. I will donate half of these to charity along with the winter scarf/hat/gloves set I picked up and blogged about in a previous post.

The sales are just too great to miss and pay it forward to those who need these items. Some are warm weather scarves and some are accessory scarves.

I have donated all but 10 scarves already to charity this year out of my personal wardrobe.

I am trying to keep my wardrobe to 10 scarves or less. Anytime I purchase a new one I will add one from my existing collection to charity.

Thredup…New Bag Addiction

My newest bag addiction comes via and I thought I would share my love with all of you. I saved almost 400 bucks on a Tory Burch bag new with tags. Check it out…new and used items for women and children.








Here are a few other awesome handbags I scored from Thredup for a fraction of the retail price!
Can you say “Score”? Whoop Whoop! I saved almost $1500 total off retail price for these handbags from Thredup.



These are both Rebecca Minkoff Purses. The red one is new with tags and the brown one was marked practically new and I don’t believe it was used at all. Perfect condition!





The pink bag is a Steve Madden bag that is new with tags and the tan/taupe bag is a Juicy Couture tote marked practically new and shows absolutely no wear.





These two are probably my favorite handbag scores from Thredup. The black/charcoal gray purse is a brand new Tory Burch purse which makes me a very smitten kitten! LOVE IT!

The turquoise is a Kate Spade marked as practically new and I can’t see any use or wear at all.


I have a bag addiction, I can admit it. I just like to be organized and prepared. But in all fairness, I did donate 14 purses to charity last month and almost as many to charity this month.

I did bid on a Rebecca Minkoff bag at a charity auction for Feed America and it looks like I may be top bidder, so I will be adding just one more bag. But that is it…I will get rid of one bag for any new bag I add to my wardrobe. It is good to have a plan.

Drink More with a Life Factory Water bottle

life factory


I am trying to drink more water and I thought maybe I just needed a better water bottle. I do not use plastic so I was on the hunt for a new glass water bottle. I ran across this 22-ounce reusable glass beverage bottle from Life Factory. It comes with a protective silicone sleeve and work-out friendly straw drinking cap. I love the shape of the bottle in my hand. I love the bright colors of the sleeve which should make it easier for me not to misplace.

The straw cap is spill-proof which is another added bonus. I love the fact that it fits in the cup holders on the treadmill and in my car. With warmer weather approaching, I am excited to have a water bottle that I can throw in some ice cubes or frozen lemon slices without any hassle. The straw cap is medical-grade silicone (non-plastic) straw.

I do own a glass water bottle with a silicone sleeve from Starbucks, but the shape of the bottle and the wide mouth opening caused lots of spills.  On this one, the non-slip silicone sleeve offers secure grip and helps protect against breakage.

I love that this bottle is reusable and I will not be filling up the landfills with plastic bottles. It offers health aspects as well. Obviously it aids in healthy hydration. The bottle and cap are BPA/BPS-free with no phthalates, PVC, or polycarbonates. This was the most important factor for me when I was researching water bottles and anything for food storage for that matter. I love glass…glass is best.

If you chose to put this in the dishwasher instead of hand washing, rest assured that the bottle and the sleeve are dishwasher safe and don’t need to be separated when washing. The cap and straw are only top-rack safe.

I purchased mine on Amazon. I love Amazon they always have such great deals. So many choices in color….but I chose the hot pink color, raspberry. The color makes me happy and I choose to be happy.

It costs about $20-25 as they are available in different sizes. I went with the biggest one because I feel I will drink more this way and I won’t need to keep refilling a smaller one.

This is one of my new favorite things so I thought I should share the love.
