Introducing: thredUP Goody Box

The online secondhand clothing retailer, thredUP, has added a new curated clothing box to their list of services. I was really curious about it so I bought myself one to check out! This post is honest, unpaid, and completely my own opinion.

You can watch my review as a video or continue scrolling to read what I have to say about this new curated clothing box.

The Goody

I’ve been a long time customer (and consigner) of thredUP and never have any problems finding styles that I like. So when I found out they started a curated clothing box (that ISN’T a monthly subscription), I was excited to try it out!

Signing up is simple – I filled out a questionnaire that asked about my sizes and clothing needs. Next I paid a $10 deposit as a general service fee. Finally, my box was shipped out to me for free! All in all, it took about a week from start to finish.

Keep in mind that while the box is $10 (with free shipping to and from) you still pay for each individual item that you decide to keep. Each box should have about 10-15 items, with mine being an exception because only 9 items arrived.

The Baddy

The clothing inside my box ended up being a big a let down. I felt like my stylist didn’t take my notes into consideration and I was sent some very questionable items, despite selecting my style as “rocker.” Here are just a few things that came in my box..

Thankfully, you can send back what you don’t like within 7 days by using a free, pre-paid label. However, if you do choose to keep something, your $10 deposit goes toward whatever you keep!

As you can see, my stylist picked some cute things but they weren’t my style at all so unfortunately I sent the whole box back.

The Ugly

Overall I like the concept and price of this box, I just wish the clothes had been more my style.

The idea of having someone thrift for you is very appealing! If you’re also into that sort of thing, I would highly recommend looking in to Redbird Vintage Box which is a monthly subscription box full of vintage clothing & accessories. They’re higher priced but the attention to detail is worth every penny! You can see what I’ve gotten from them in the past by reading this post or this post.

I will still remain a loyal thredUP customer but I think their Goody Box service still needs some more time. After I returned my full box, I got an email from the Goody Box customer service department and asked if I would let them try again – free of charge. I decided to go for it so be on the lookout for a follow-up!
