So, I am really excited to share today's post with you guys on how to shop smart on designer duds. I know a lot of us want those designer items but can't really afford them all of the time. And on the flip side, we have things we know we could really get rid of because, despite how much we love them, we just don't wear them anymore (I am certainly guilty of this... I tend to hold onto things for sentimental reasons).

But anyway, back to the point. Today I have partnered with my friends over at thredUP, the largest online resale store that buys and sells women's and kid's high quality fashion, to share this fun springtime look and how you can shop smart for designer items too.

I found this outfit while shopping there and it contains some of my favorite retailers up to 90% off the price I would normally pay (I am wearing a Soft Joie dress, Madewell bag, Michael Kors scarf and Old Navy denim jacket - all brands I shop with regularly)! And in total, I saved $325.04 (originally I would have spent $444 but I only spent $118.96)! That's a huuuuuge savings, you guys!

thredUP makes it super easy to shop smart and by your fave brands too with their search tool and filters. But what I was most happy with is that these items were in perfect condition (in fact, some were even brand new)! All items are personally inspected by the thredUP team and arrive in a super cute polka dot box all clean and folded like I had just gotten them from a store.

If you're looking to get rid of some items that you don't really wear anymore, definitely order a thredUP clean out kit to fill and place on your doorstep for pickup. I am currently going through my closet to collect items to send into thredUP. I don't want my clothes ending up in a landfill somewhere harming the environment. Plus I'd prefer my clothes going to a new home where they will be loved and worn. And if it's better for the planet, then I am all for that!
