ThredUp DIY Denim Unboxing
Thred-Up Denim Box Review
After seeing a ton of unboxings for the Thred-UP DIY Denim Box I decided to try it out on my own. I absolutely love opening up mystery boxes so this was already on my To-Do list. I ordered mine in late January and it arrived a few days ago. Read on to see what I got!
Second pair of jeans that had a crotch hole is this Aeropostale mall brand. Not a huge loss though the color was pretty cute. If the seamstress in me would stop being lazy I'd try to upcycle them into a denim skirt with lace hem. Comps would have been about $10-14 considering their plain cut.
The Decent Pickings
Comps range from $20-45 depending on their style and cut.
Adriano Goldschmied is an Italian fashion designer who focuses on denim jeans. Also known as "the Godfather of denim" and is the originator of “Premium denim”. These jeans are in great condition save for a loose thread on the button. Comps range from $30-50 on Poshmark.

So is it worth buying? I have to say that considering I've paid up to $65 for Mystery Boxes that contain 6-10 pieces it's a great deal. Ten pounds for $20 (plus shipping) is hard to pass up. It's a huge gamble on what you get in each box. Hell, it could come with all crotchless wonders since it's labeled as a "DIY rescue" box.
Though that's the beauty in Mystery Boxes isn't it? The intrigue and curiosity of the unknown. The absolute excitement discovering treasures amid rabble. If you can afford to lose $20 then by all means go for it. Consider it an investment financially as name brands can be expensive and also environmentally because you're saving these from hitting the overflowing land dumps.
But if you're hard up on luck and monetary means then don't take the chance as a box can be a true mess of nothing. And there are way cheaper ways to source goodies like exploring the Goodwill Outlet bins.
If you decide to take a chance I'd love it if you'd consider using my referral link. You'll get $10 if you're a brand new customer to ThredUP and I'll get $10. Everyone wins!
