I just cleaned out our closets and mailed off another bag to ThredUP, and I was excited to see how many of you were signing up to do the same! It’s so much easier to have a closet with only pieces you love to wear. Here’s the trick though: once you get a little store credit at ThredUP, and you start to look around on their site, it’s obvious that they really are the LARGEST online consignment store. There’s so much stuff to weed through that finding a winner can feel like hunting for a needle in a haystack. Since we want to keep our closets edited, and not continue the buy and purge cycle, it pays to be really picky. So, I thought I would do some of the digging for you and share some of my favorite pieces that are currently for sale. As of posting this, they are all available and up for grabs!

Here’s what I would put in my shopping cart today:
- $44 J.Crew Denim Jacket. A wardrobe staple in a long-wearing fabric that gets better with time.
- $43 Joie Short Sleeve Silk Top. I love this top. It’s unique and feminine, and could go with jeans (especially flares that are coming back in style) or with a slouchy trouser or with a pencil skirt. Originally $218!
- $50 Tucker 3/4 Sleeve Silk Top. Similar to the blouse I bought from thredUP. See it here.
- $43 Joie Short Sleeve Silk Top. Doesn’t this shirt have such a flattering neckline? With skinny jeans and ballet flats, you would have such a classic, pretty outfit. I also saw this same shirt in a pretty wine color, which would be great for fall.
- $32 Asos Maternity Dress. A simple sheath dress for pregnancy, with a pretty sleeve and back. I’m thinking about this one for holiday parties, paired with a black turtleneck and black tights, since I’ll be about 100 weeks pregnant by then.
- $35 Asos Maternity Dress. Asos has a really good maternity line, so it’s a good brand to search on ThredUP. This dress would be so fun for a holiday party with a statement necklace and heels.
- $30 Madewell Jeans. I get a little nervous to buy denim without trying it on first, but Madewell is known for their jeans. This is a low-commitment way to try out a new trend, flares without denting your wallet or sacrificing quality.
- $9 Gap Kids Jeans. I’m definitely getting these for our new little guy. Baby Gap jeans have been a go-to for us, and this is a size I know we’ll need for baby #3.
- $36 J. Crew Jacket. J.Crew makes such durable outerwear, and this jacket is perfect for fall. I love the color, bomber-jacket style, and pockets. It would go so well with an oversize flannel shirt and leggings.
- $45 Madewell Cardigan. I have this cardigan in black and it’s one of my favorite cozy pieces to wear at home or out. It has side vents and a longer back hem.
- $57 Milly Cocktail Dress. A lot of women send in their special occasion dresses and shoes, so if you have a fancy holiday party or wedding you can find a gorgeous outfit for 70-80% off. I like this dress for New Years’ Eve (it is a $300 dress!).
- $43 Equipment Long Sleeve Silk Top. This top is always compared to Everlane’s silk shirts, but at retail it runs $220 so this is a steal!
In general if you’re shopping ThredUP, keep in mind that they don’t spend the time or money on steaming the clothes. My rule is to stick to fabrics and silhouettes that will keep their shape – silk blouses, dresses, outerwear, and the occasional sweater. If you want to try denim, they have lots of fancy brands and you can return them within 14 days if the fit is off. I avoid most cotton because it stretches out. People send in a lot of past season clothes, and some of that can look really dated, but I like that you can find some timeless patterns that are out of stock now.
Anything here that you would buy? I’m totally up for doing these little “in my cart” style posts if it’s helpful or if you have something specific you’re on the hunt for!
