My New Favorite Way How to Save Money on Clothes

This post is sponsored by ThredUp. Thank you so much for supporting Pennies Into Pearls by using my links.

I just placed my first order on ThredUp.com. I bought name brand clothes that I would never be willing to pay the kind of cash those retailers are asking!

But on this order I saved over $700 off retail prices on some amazingly cute clothes! Let me show you my new favorite way how to save money on clothes, shoes, accessories, and jewelry!

 

What is ThredUp?

I really love that you get to shop from the comfort of home and have all your clothes shipped straight to your front door!

My first ever ThredUp haul and I have some pretty serious feelings about it! In this ThredUp review video I am sharing my first reaction to my ThredUp haul try on session. ThredUp sponsored this video and as always, all opinions are 100% genuine and real!
