UPDATED TOTAL: $86.06

I feel like I got a lot of great items for spring and summer so I am pretty shocked at that total. I did have $10 referral credit to thredUp ($10 off first order here) and $30 through Twice ($10 off first order here) so I was able to get some great thrifting deals. I was really excited about my jean shorts and lace top. I thought they would be great items, but didn't want to spend a lot. With my credits, they were amazing deals! The white and black v necks, white tank, and yoga pants are all replacements for items I have and found on sale at Target (with a coupon of course!).

I've gotten rid of most of my short sleeve shirts so I ordered a few tops through thredUp. I really like them all. They are a bit out of my comfort zone, but totally remixable so I think you'll see them a lot this summer. I still have a purse on my wish list, I have my eye on these sandals, and I really want a navy gingham shirt, but JCrew Factory's are back ordered! I am debating this one from Boden. The cuffs are so cute! I also took a chance and ordered some distressed skinnies from Gap, but they are on back order until July so I didn't include them in this post.

P.S. I just realized this is my 300th post. WOOHOO!! (technically it's showing as 299 because I had to take down my Saltine Toffee for a bit due to massive amounts of spam comments, but I'm counting it anyway.)

*The thredUp and Twice links are my referral codes. If you make a purchase I will receive $10 credit.

  1. How do you like Thread up and Twice? I haven't tried them yet, but may have to. I also have seen that Wal-Mart stripe shirt all over the place and am amazed by it's popularity and affordability- and of course now I want one too. :) Great post!

  2. I have been buying things from them for about 6 months now and overall I like them. thredUp is a little cheaper, but Twice is all name brands so you kind of pay for that. Twice's shipping is super fast and they have free returns which I love. I've gotten some really great deals from both places!

  7. I've seen the Target gingham and it's super cute! They just don't have it in my size. Maybe they will get more in. Fingers crossed! :)

  8. Awesome ThredUp and Twice finds! I've gotten some great deals through ThredUp, but I hadn't heard of Twice until you mentioned it a while back--just downloaded the app!
    I really like that striped button up from Wal-Mart!

  9. There are similar button ups from Gap and Banana Republic for like 3x that much! It's a nice lightweight that will be perfect this summer, too! And I loved that extra credit for downloading the Twice app! :)

  11. I can not believe you got all of that for that price! I am so impressed!! I hate to admit that I have never heard of Thread Up. Is that a resale site? I live in a small town where there is no thrifting. I need to head to a bigger city to do some resale shopping(: Susan

  14. It is! Even though I have lots of resale stores nearby, I still love thredup and Twice. It saves me so much time! You can search by size, color, type of clothing, and brand name!

  17. Congrats on snagging all these pieces at sweet deals! The general hue of everything is so bright and spring-y! I need to spend some time on Twice or ThredUp when I need a specific item...if I go just to "browse," I'll get in trouble! And congrats on your 300th post- so impressive!

  20. Sometimes I get lucky and find specific things I am looking for, but more often I will just look generally like for jeans, or skirts, or in this month's case-short sleeve shirts! :)

  21. I know, right?! By July I will have such high expectations they had better be perfect! I'm hoping they come earlier.

  22. Holy cow. I can't even imagine 800 posts! What a milestone! :)

    ReplyDelete

    And jeans back ordered until July!? They most be the most amazing jeans ever!
