While our first love might be DIYing and making things ourselves, there are some things we like to leave in the hands of the pros — like, the dress. You know the one, we’re talking about, right? You can wear it to work and rock the meeting, slip on sexy heels and sashay to a date and (accessorized in every way) it’s been your plus one to more events than you care to Instagram. Sites and apps like Rent the Runway let you borrow that dress for the night, but now thredUP is giving you an affordable option to hang it in your closet 4ever.
ThredUP is an online consignment shop that sells ***flawless used clothes and now with today’s launch of the X Collection, they’re adding high-end fashion to an already impressive roster. The X Collection will feature pieces from coveted fill-my-dream-closet designers like Alice + Olivia, J Brand, Kate Spade, Rag & Bone, DVF, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Tory Burch and more.
After a quick browse, we spotted this pretty DVF frock and a Rebecca Taylor silk dress — both for $113.
There’s a section marked New With Tags where we instantly found ourselves eyeing this $99 Tucker dress and a fresh off-the-rack Cynthia Steffe silk dress for $134.
Marc by Marc Jacobs is currently featured in thredUP’s brand spotlight, where you can find a collection of pants and dresses for around $100 and tops (some less than $50!) that would pair well with jeans from the new premium Denim Boutique.
If you’re looking to unload some lightly or never worn designer goodies from your own wardrobe, thredUP will let you earn up to 80% of the item’s sale price when it sells. If shopping is still more your thing, sign up today and get 20% off of your first purchase.
