It’s official, my daughter has started raiding my closet, grrrr (you could win a $250 shopping spree!!!)

Zoey is pissed. Pisssssssssed. I got to order a bunch of stuff from thredUP (the most badass online consignment store!) and I only bought stuff for myself and I didn’t get anything for her. How dare I think about myself for the first time in seven years!!

And now she is insisting that I share it all with her. “Uhhhhh, no, it won’t fit you.” But she’s claiming it doesn’t matter and that it’ll look great on her anyway. I’m like duhh, because everything looks great on a cute seven-year-old girl. Seriously, I can order her 9,000 pairs of jeans online and every single one of them will look good. Grrrr, it’s not fair.

Anyways, I decided whatever. If she really wants to try on my new clothes, why not? So we had a little “Who wore it better” photo shoot. Drum roll please. Badadadadadada, now introducing the clothes I got for myself and not Zoey, but damn does she look good in them.

(make sure to keep reading so you can see how to enter to win a $250 shopping spree from thredUP!!)

Ohhhh Zoeyyy, look out. It looks like you have some serious competition in that last one. Did we have fun? YES! Will I ever get to wear any of these myself? Probably not. So I kept a few other things secret from her. Shhhhhh, don’t tell.

Anyways, in case you can’t tell, this is sponsored, but I only promote products I really like, and I LOVE thredUP. They are the largest online secondhand shop for women and kids with high-quality clothing at up to 90% off retail price. I can afford a lot of stuff I couldn’t ordinarily afford, and it was sooooo much easier than sorting through the racks at a consignment store with my little moochers in tow. They even tell you the condition of each item and sends in a cute polka dot box. See!

I know, I know, you’re like shut up already and tell us how to win the $250 shopping spree!!! So here’s what you need to do. Just hop on over to thredUP and pick out an item you like, copy the link to the item, and then leave the link in a comment here or on my Facebook page (or both!). I’ll randomly pick one lucky winner in the next 48 hours and I’ll reply to your comment. Make sure to check back in a couple of days to see if you won! (Here’s the legal mumbo jumbo if you want to read a long boring contract.)

And even if you don’t win the contest, you still WINNNN!!! Because thredUP is giving Baby Sideburns readers an extra 40% off their first order! Wahooo! The first 100 people to use my code BABY40 will get the discount! (Applies to new US customers only. Discount up to $50)

P.S. Look who has officially stolen my dress already. And she ordered chocolate ice cream. Grrrrr. I’d be super annoyed if she didn’t look so damn cute in it, chocolate stains and all.

If you liked this, please don’t forget to like and share it!! Thank you!!!

  1. You just found our best kept secret: ThredUp – love them! I almost shop them exclusively now and their customer service is equally fantastic. Buy stuff for Zoe and your little guy too! The kids love getting their own polka dot box every now and then 😛

  2. Jacalyn E Zaleski

    This dress because it looks like the most comfortable thing in the world!

  3. Woot woot…my dogs keeps chewing up my pants so this would be awesome.

  4. Love this casual dress. Unfortunately, it wasn’t in my size.

    The first time I ordered from ThredUp was when my daughter had a jacket she L-O-V-E loved!
    I couldn’t find it online anywhere and came across this site and BAM, there it was in another color. Perfect. Thanks for reminding me of this great site, it’s been awhile.


    I keep seeing thredup in my newsfeed on FB but have been hesitant to give it a try…maybe it’s a sign that it’s meant to be! lol

  6. Maternity Wear. I wish thredUp was around when I was pregnant with my 1st.


    I could get into a lot of trouble on this site. Thanks Baby sideburns..

  8. Thanks for the chance! Pictures were too cute!

  9. You all wore those dresses beautifully, even dad! LOL!!!! I love reading your posts, your kids just kill me! My fiance even likes hearing about y’alls shenanigans haha! If I won that gift card, I would expand my wardrobe past sweatpants, the occasional jeans, and tshirts (most of which are my fiancé’s lol). I’d totally put this in the cart first, my very first and only “little black dress”! I could see Anthony’s face now! Haha 🙂


    We’re going on a cruise and this would be a great dress. Dressy enough for a nice dinner, but still casual.


    I *LOVE* thredup and found it thanks to you!! I have sent a couple of bags worth of clothes thanks to a 75lb weight loss over the last 12 months – still have 25 more to lose!! I stalk ALOT of items on their site but have not yet been able to get anything. Thank you for telling us all about!!

  12. I have been wanting to check them out! Keep hearing about them all the time. Now it’s a must! 🙂

  13. I’ve been looking for a good trench coat, but I’m too cheap, I mean frugal, to buy one full price! 🙂

  14. These jeans because I love Old Navy but the closest one is almost 2 hours away.

  15. I want this dress for my daughter’s wedding this fall!


    This could be an exciting and much needed shopping spree for this mommy. I hardly ever buy myself anything. Can’t wait to hear the winner!!! ♥️

  17. SOOOO many things to love, but this is just the bees knees!!! LOL

  18. I’ve been on a search for plain black flats that aren’t a million bucks:

  19. Mallory Sanstra

    Oh pick me! As a momma of 5 I never get to buy anything for myself.

  20. Wow! I’ve never seen this site. Thanks for helping destroy my bank account…(please let me blame it on you)

  21. Thank you for introducing me to this awesome site! I’m definitely going to spend some time perusing all the items and I love how the website is so user friendly!

  22. Krystal Mehrhof

    I had such a hard time picking! I generally have difficulty finding clothes that look good on me but I’ve discovered the wrap type style is cute and doesn’t make me look pregnant (I am not!). Much to my surprise, they had a lot of options! Thank you Baby Sideburns!!

  23. I LOVE this dress! 🙂 The colors, the flowy fabric! I’m so ready for summer!!

  24. Shelley Simpson

    I have been seeing posts about thredup for a while but finally checked it out today. Such cute stuff and great prices!

  25. Jessica Nicholas

    I kinda love this shirt for the summer – it’s bright & cute & just blousy enough to hide my belly lol


    I have been wanting a pair of these for a long time to work out, aka chase my rugrats and clean house, however they’re expensive…even used and with a discount. I have been using Thred up since you first recommended it and it’s a blessing for my family of 5!

    P.S. I love your blog and have both your books and believe they are a mandatory gift for every new mom!

  27. It’s a shame everything’s in the US, what about us in the rest of the world 😑! My girls (17&13) have been stealing my clothes, shoes, make up, hair straighteners etc etc for years now. I have 3 pairs of hair straighteners yet whenever I go to use them they’ve all gone. They even take my perfume AND NOT THE CHEAPER ONE I USE EVERYDAY! 😡It drives me insane! It’s even worse since I lost over 125lbs. So now I’ve given up, I don’t bother buying them any clothes, as they hate anything I buy for them, (I have bad taste…..supposedly😳) and just buy myself clothes knowing if I’m REALLY lucky, I may get to wear it once *sigh*😂.

  28. I am crushing HARD on this little yellow dress from J. Crew! So cute and springy!


    I could wear this everyday! Even on my boring stay at home mom days 🙂


    This is definitely 10 thousand times easier than taking the kids to the store for used clothes, what a great idea.

  31. I really love the color of this dress and I could totally be relaxed and comfortable in it. I could even add a cardigan though, and wear it to work.


    I haven’t had a car for years, & I’ve been battling depression without any insurance, so I haven’t been able to get to work, but I finally got a car a few weeks ago, and I’ve finally been able to start seeing a doctor, so I’m about to have to start looking for a whole lot of work clothes soon (I hope)! This will be an excellent resource!

  33. Cute dress! Not something I would ordinarily pick out but for this price it would be fun!

  34. Looks like I know where a significant amount of my free time (what little I have) will be spent…

  35. Oh no, this new site is dangerous!! Hubby will not be happy 😂

  36. Jennifer Painter

    Oh man….this site is amazing! One more place to get me in trouble 😉

  37. OMG I now know where to shop for maternity clothes without spending my whole life savings! I absolutely ADORE this dress and it is perfect for me since I’ll be spending this 120 degree summer 8/9 months pregnant (we really didn’t think the timing through on this one!) So I could really use the giftcard since ya know, apparently its illegal to run around . Even if it is hotter than the surface of the sun

  38. I will never in a million years be able to afford a brand new Coach bag and I love them and have been wanting one forever.

  39. I found the most expensive item on there because why not? It’s originally $3,100 and selling for $624.99. It’s a bedazzled tiny purse that reminds me of an easter egg. Clearly, this needs to be added to your collection.


    Love thredup and would love these shoes. Would buy them if I win. I’m a teacher and I attend every prom because I film them. I’ve created a fashion police show for my students and I’m always looking for cute things to wear without spending a ton of money. Would be amazing!


    I have never used thredup but I am definitely going to look into it. My kids need some new clothes!! Thanks for the chance to win!


    I definitely think Zoey looks adorable, but she does have a little competition from Daddy Sideburns 😂

  43. I’m so excited about thredUP. I love these tanks like I love sunshine.

  44. Bleh I’m so fat after having 2 kids in the last 3 years. Need more pretty things!

  45. Megan Joseph on March 22 🙂
    Never heard of the site…but what a jackpot!

  46. The site isn’t loading for me 🙁


    I’ve been watching this for months and it was finally discounted! (Yes I’m cheap and get The Mom Guilt very easily)

  48. We must be blowing up their website… Can’t get on … selected a few items … I’ll go back later!!

  49. I’m a sucker for Foxcroft shirts. I didn’t realize they made sweaters, too!

  50. kmduckworth2015

    I LOVE ThredUp. LOVE. That’s where most of my wardrobe is from, at this point, and pretty much all of my kids’ stuff too, especially my little girl.

  51. Rebecca MArion
    I also love Schoola for my little girl to keep her from stealing my stuff!

    Thus white romper looks super cute. Maybe I could pull it off if Nebraska would hurry up & warm up!!!

  53. Samantha Riggelson
  54. I need a new tote for work to schlep my shoes and lunch around….I think this would work

  55. What a great place to stock up on work clothes for my new job! Thank you!

  56. I was leaving the house with my six year old and saw a smudge on her cheek that looked like…mascara??? She’d found mine and applied it so well that I never would have known except for the smudge! The borrowing starts early! She can’t fit these boots yet though, I am safe to get these!

  57. Love this dress. Just wish it came with a free babysitter so I could wear it out on the town!

  58. This is a gorgeous dress that would be great for special occasions.

  59. Yay! Shorts! Because I’m a mom in hot Houston where it’s summer 9mo+ out of the year and my kids want to be outside every day eeeeek!

  60. Awesome site, Now I can shop for designer clothing when I’m hiding from the kids… thanks for all the laughs, I’ve been reading your stuff for about 5 years now!

  61. OMG where has this site been all my life, I hadn’t heard of ThredUp until I saw your post! Their selection is so unique and their prices can’t be beat! LOVE this Marciano
    Silk Dress, so pretty! ❤️ Thanks so much for the chance!

  62. love thredup I hope I can still find good things now that it’s becoming more popular!

  63. Alyssa K Glover

    I’m looking for a new job and post maternity need a new pair of interview pants!
