Having the Gracious’ Spring Fling Soiree (find all the details about the Spring Fling here) coming up, I needed a classy, but fun dress to wear. I have heard so many good things about ThredUp, so this was the perfect opportunity to shop the online consignment shop.
After browsing on the website, I decided on this gorgeous Betsey Johnson silk dress that was 80% off retail, bringing the price to under $35! Besides scoring an amazing deal, I also carried the vintage theme on by wearing a thrifted dress to a vintage furnishings store event. Perfect!
I love the classic A-line silhouette of this dress and its sweetheart neckline. The cute pink and green floral pattern truly pops on the black silk, as it strikes the perfect balance between sweet and daring. I wore this dress with a black faux leather jacket (not pictured) and pink suede lace-up sandals, which picked up the pink from the dress pattern.
A soiree is not the only event I can see myself wearing this Betsey Johnson dress to, as I would wear this dress to a summer wedding with some sparkly jewelry, or a jeans jacket for a casual dinner date. In the cooler months, I would pair the silk dress with black tights and a wool cardigan to transition it into my fall and winter wardrobe. The possibilities seem endless and I am excited to incorporate this gem of a dress into my outfit rotation.
ThredUP is the largest online consignment and thrift store and makes it incredibly easy to refresh your wardrobe on a budget. The way it works is you browse their huge inventory of brand name clothing, and accessories, which are up to 90% off the original price. Once you picked your items online, ThredUp sends them to your doorstep in the cutest dotted packaging.
And if you think we are talking about moth-eaten, out-of-date silk blouses with shoulder pads, think again! Each item is hand inspected and certified for quality, which assures that only the best clothing items are offered to you, meaning if an item doesn’t meet the highest quality standards, ThredUp won’t accept it. All items are “Practically New,” which means that they are free of ANY defect and function just as they did when they were originally purchased. And since ThredUp wants you to love your purchase, it even offers a return policy, in case your clothing does not fit perfectly. Try to return something to your local thrift store, I dare you!
Besides the great value and excellent customer service, what I appreciate the most about ThredUp is their commitment to sustainability. Buying and reselling used high-quality clothing relieves that recycling guilt we all have by lightening our family’s carbon-footprint. Moreover, ThredUp encourages us to live in a more collective, sharing economy and become a more conscious consumer one order at a time.
Happy online thrifting!!
