I’m on a tight budget now but I also need to expand and update my professional wardrobe.

I wear the same few tops every week and don’t have many options for work-related events.

Yesterday, I attended an event and seriously, didn’t have anything to wear.

Seriously! And there were pictures taken of me. =(

So I checked out ThredUP, an online consignment shop. I bought from them last year and still wear those items today.

If you don’t know, ThredUP sells gently used, designer clothes for women, juniors, and kids.


It’s not 100% perfect to buy clothes online because they don’t always fit right. From my last purchase with them most of the items fit. And the ones that didn’t fit ended up fitting later when I subconsciously lost weight.

You can return items if they don’t fit. However, some sale items are final sale only.

With a $10 off coupon, I was able to get 3 tops for only $22.89! And that includes shipping! You can find tops as low as $4.99.

There are even designer purses like Coach for $50!

The only thing I had to watch out for was overspending.

I had to remove a cute pink wool J. Crew blazer from my cart! But I went back to get it after I earned $40 in credit. Yes! It’s my favorite blazer now.

I wore it when I was in the studio audience at CreativeLive and got compliments!
