Secondhand Summer Dress & Online Thrifting
I officially no longer know what season it is here. The calendar tells me it’s winter, and I was wearing boots, scarves, mittens and a winter coat last weekend…but this weekend we had weather that hit 80 degrees Fahrenheit! This left me scratching my head over how I should dress, as I had only unpacked my warm clothes since we arrived in Argentina.
However, sifting through my summer wardrobe I was excited to pull out this dress! Not only had it not wrinkled while it was being stored (huge bonus points for not having to iron it, haha), but it was a nice reminder of just how awesome shopping for it was. This was a dress I had found secondhand on thredUP, which is an amazing online thrift store. (This dress was only $13 and looked brand new when it arrived!) But don’t worry, I linked to some similar floral options at the bottom of this post, and thredUP has so many cute secondhand, floral dresses available too! (Click here to see them.)
I’m not a very good thrift shopper, as I generally don’t have the patience to sift through racks and racks of clothing to find what I’m looking for + get it in my size. However, thredUP makes it so gosh darn easy to shop secondhand for us lazy shoppers who prefer shopping from the comfort of our couch. You can sort the clothing available by your size, price range, colors, brands, etc. I love it! (And you can get 15% off your order if you use code PCKGHDFC.)
I had worn this cute dress for trying some of the local cafes in the area and walking through some of the lovely parks here in Rosario. We also went out for dinner to get steak with our friends (again). I swear I’ve eaten more steak in the past couple months than I have in my entire life. Haha. But when in Argentina….
And this park, where I took these photos, is HUGE. It’s Parque de la Independencia and there’s a little lake in the center of it, where you can rent paddle boats (you can kind of see them in the photo below). There are also cafes, a lot of street vendors selling food, ponies and llamas for the kids to pet and ride…and lots of Pokemon to be caught. Haha. We’ve really been enjoying this park. (Expect many more photos from this park in the future!)

I love thredUp!! i found that store earlier this month and it’s all i ever do. if I’m bored in a lecture you can usually find me scrolling through it . it’s been great to help me pick up some cheap warm clothes, and if you order off the app for a limited time there’s free shipping!
Hi, Lexi!! I’m so happy to hear you love thredUP too! I hope you’re enjoying college! That’s good to know the app is offering free shipping right now. I don’t actually have the app…I’ll have to download and see if I can find some goodies. 🙂 Thank you for the tip!
