By now you probably all know how much I love vintage and thrift shopping. When it comes to any type of shopping, I'm old school and I prefer to do so in person rather than online. When it comes to second hand shopping, this is even more true because I like to inspect for imperfections, feel the fabric and try the clothes on for fit. A few months back, Thred Up gifted me with a credit so I could shop for some second hand finds. I scored 2 cardigans and 2 dresses (one of each I'm wearing in these photos). All of them were brand new and still had the tags on them! I decided to share some pros and cons of my experience with Thred Up in case you were ever curious about the app and how it works.
First, a little bit about the app if you're unfamiliar with it. Thred Up is an app and website where you can shop and sell second hand items.

Overall, I am happy with the pieces I scored from Thred Up. I think it's a great way to thrift shop if you prefer online shopping. I would definitely order from here again, but for the most part, I think I'll just stick to scouring the vintage and thrift stores here in NYC.
