Recently, I've also purchased for a second-hand e-shop. You heard right, second-hand... I know some people have apprehensions about these type of things, but ThredUp has really good, well cared for products. I really like what came through! Some of their clothing pieces are actually pretty cheap. Each piece that I purchased was around $11.
Topshop, $17.00 Young Hawaii, $3.50
Old Navy, $5.50 BCBGeneration, $28.50

I really, really liked the packaging. Aren't the green dots adorable? The structure was also very stiff and durable, meaning that the clothing inside are well protected!
The quality of the clothes are also super good! I wouldn't actually have thought that it was a second-hand item! That's how good they came to me~ From their site, they have a 12-point quality inspection. Not only do the pieces have to be in like-new condition, they also must have:
- no tears/rips
- no marks
- no fraying
- no odors
- no holes
- no pilling
- no missing parts
- no stains or spots
- no fading
- no peeling
- no hair
- no stretching
I'm really glad to see that they care so much about the quality of clothing they're offering to their users. Other vintage stores don't go through such a process. Sadly, some things come through and they weren't what I excepted... I'm sure ThredUp loses some really cool pieces because they have such high conditions, but I'm also really glad about that. I can be pretty confident that what I get is what I see on their site! These are what I purchased!
Old Navy, $8.00
Calvin Klein, $11.00
$10-of Referral opportunity:
Sorry guys, I know people really don't like it when bloggers or other people try to refer them to a site. I really have that pet peeve too, but I still do it. Sorry!!! Anyways, since I want to be open and transparent with you guys, I'll let you know both the benefits that you get, and the benefits that I get.
When I refer people, they get $10 to spend as they like. When that person spends the $10, I also get $10 added to my account to use as I like.
The good thing is that you can pretty much get a piece free and only have to pay shipping~
Once again, I'd like to apologize. I'm a pretty selfish and stingy person...haha. >___< Hope you don't mind. If you guys don't like these type of things, let me know! I'll stop! :)
