How to Affordably Upgrade Your Fitness Wardrobe + $250 Giveaway

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

I’ve teamed up with thredUP to bring you this blog post. I love thredUP and have used it for years now. Try it for yourself and use code CAKE40 for 40% off your first order!

You guys have definitely heard me rave about thredUP quite a few times on CNC in the past, so it’s no secret that I’m a huge fan and regular customer. I use it to sell like new clothing and pretty much Quinn’s entire wardrobe is from thredUP. (Not even kidding – I was on thredUP every other week when he went through a “knee slide” phase because all of his pants had holes in them, and he desperately needed new ones!) Clearly, thredUP has become one of my go-to resources for toddler clothes, especially seasonal items, like winter gear and special occasions (remember Qman’s birthday “3” shirt?), but even more so for activewear and athleisure apparel for myself. I’m always on the hunt for new cute workout gear and love scoring the best deals, so I’m excited to partner with thredUP again to bring you this post and share more of the brand’s awesomeness. Never heard of thredUP? Oh, you are in for a treat!

thredUP is a huge online thrift store that both buys and sells second clothing – but with none of the hassle! Seriously. When friends in real life ask me about thredUP, I always tell them how easy it is to use. I typically shop from my couch after Qman goes to bed and my order arrives, right to my front door, just days later. There’s even free shipping on qualified orders, if you spend more than $79, which is usually pretty easy for me to do because I just keep finding more and more awesome deals to add to my shopping cart!

thredUP resells clothing from more than 35,000 top brands and designers for up to 90% off the original retail value. Simply search by your favorite brands (like Lululemon, Gap, J.Crew, Express, Forever 21, H&M, Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, and Anthropologie) and filter by size, color, price, and style to easily find what you’re looking for. thredUP triple inspects each item by hand to ensure all the clothes are like-new, many are even brand new with tags – and they add 15,000 (!!) items everyday so there are always new finds to score!

And then there’s the selling side of thredUP, which is perfect for selling maternity clothes, workout gear, and barely used kid’s clothes – they outgrow them so fast! It’s super easy to sell on thredUP – just go online to order a free “clean out kit,” fill the bag with the items you want to sell, and pop it in the mail. thredUP takes care of the shipping! thredUP keeps you updated on the progress of your consignments (via email notifications) and then you can use what you earn to purchase clothing/accessories right from their site or they’ll send you a VISA gift card in the mail for the same amount. Personally, I’m a fan of the credit option! 🙂

Speaking of credit, I recently cashed in some of mine to upgrade my workout wardrobe with a few new pieces. Once I placed my order online, all my like-new items arrived neatly folded and packaged in thredUP’s signature polka-dot box. It’s quite exciting to receive it in the mail!

My order included six new items (all workout/athleisure clothing) from thredUP and saved a whooping $466!! Awesome, right?!

Favorite pieces from my order…

Like new Zella tank (originally $45) for $17.99

New with tags Gap Fit pullover (originally $89) for $23.99

Like new Gap Fit Active Tank (originally $54) for $16.99

Like new Marc New York hoodie (originally $238) for $50.99 <— totally obsessed! 

One of the tanks that I ordered wasn’t quite right, so I returned it to thredUP, which was a piece of cake – I just printed out a shipping label and dropped in the mail. Easy-peasy!


Here’s your chance to win a $250 shopping spree on thredUP! To enter, just leave a comment on this blog post with a link to an item that you love on thredUP. I will randomly pick a winner next week. Good luck!
