  • I thought it was so refreshing that she wasn’t flashing all the high end brands that she was pairing with the thrifted finds. I could tell it was an intentional choice and I totally love how un-materialistic she has become esp. in this society.

  • Thank you for this! I’ve recently been learning about ethical and sustainable clothing buying options, so this video came at the perfect time for me. 💕 Also, I just love that for all the years I’ve watched you, you’ve embraced your adorable, quirky self.

  • Thanks for this opportunity to try ThreadUp at a discount Ingrid. Unfortunately, when I filled my cart and tried to check out, it would not accept my order because they didn't accept my Canadian postal code. Help! 🙂

  • Hey Ingrid! I love this video! You are so cute! I would LOOOVE if you could include the makeup you used! It looks so great! THANKS!!😘

  • Amazing video! Your recent content about style and clothing has been so inspiring and I'm so glad to see you talking about the environmental side too! And also your happiness just shines through and that makes the videos so nice to watch!

  • Love Thred Up. I’m lucky to be just a couple of miles from their PA warehouse, so they have a small retail store there!

  • Love that one of the non-profits they work with is Girls Inc! I teach a domestic violence prevention program (among other similar outreach programs) for them and it makes such a huge difference to the girls. We also collect business clothing for the high school girls and gift them interview outfits when they start looking for internships and for college admission interviews.

  • This video was so well done! I love the mix of thriving tips with the styling ideas ❤️. I will have to try Thred Up because I want to get into thrifting. I just hate digging through all the clothes in person.

  • Love you Ingrid! PS . IDK why during the 2nd outfit I just got the random idea that your walking out of frame look a like a lot to the wey The Grinch walks lol

  • thank you for showing a wider range of price points in your thrifting this time!! i always enjoyed your previous ones, but it's just nice to see you wearing old navy haha.

  • I LOVE thredUP! It's like all the fun of thrift shopping but I'm on my couch drinking wine instead of spending a day going to a bunch of different shops.

  • I really enjoyed this video, great looks for affordable prices!!! Can you please take 2 minutes and share the lip colors that you wear here!! You are so well put together!

  • I so feel you on being more fearless with clothes as you get older. I've always loved fashion, but now I pretty much only care about how what I'm wearing makes me feel and not about what other people might think of it. Awesome feeling.

  • I have frye boots in very good condition size 7 that I’m going to list in Poshmark shop @aneema under $90, Madewell and other nice brands like Madewell, free people, Topshop check it out.

  • Hey Ingrid can you do an update video and how its been since you came out lesbian on youtube and how things have been with your faith too etc. Also how can straight people like myself help in this process:) thanks!:)

  • Can I just say, I find so much joy in watching your style! The idea that less frivolous spending actually taps you into a more "personally styled" wardrobe is so key, and you do it so well! I would love to hear how you think your style has evolved since you moved to New York!

  • Honestly, I’ve never had success on Thread Up. I use Vinted regularly and find way better items on there. I’m willing to dig to find the gold on Vinted, which is why I think I like it the best. It’s also the most affordable. Poshmark is good too to find specific items you’re looking for like items from a specific brand and style, but I don’t use it as regularly.

    Thought I’d share in case anyone was interested.

  • So good to see you looking more glam and spruced up. LOVE how you've styled these (especially the first two 😍)

  • I’ve been interested in looking at thredUP!! I’ve really been trying to buy less fast fashion this year, and buy less in general, and it has felt so good! But when I do need to buy, I’m trying to be very selective

  • I’m so glad you are taking a conscious stance in shopping in general. So many of the long-time Youtubers did not evolve with their audiences and I just grew out of their rut.

  • Great video, but here’s the thing with thread up…That Old Navy jumpsuit was 25$ second hand. I could buy it new in store on the clearance rack for 8$.

  • I buy nearly all my clothing (and many other things) thrifted and half of the reason beside reusing, uniqueness and quality is because it’s economical. So though I love the reusing nature of this, man, a great deal is still paying $45 ?? 😧😧

  • That was so much fun to watch! Colors really do look good on you, Ingrid! / I really enjoyed the whole concept of this video. If you are wondering if you should make more videos like this one, I am sure many of us would be happy to see them ! xx

  • I honestly never liked second hand shopping because I found the stores disorganized and stuff everywhere opposed to a retail store where they have all the same shirts on the same hooks, etc. I am trying to be more sustainable and have started going back into secondhand shops and I just had to learn patience to be in there!

  • i particualry was so excited by your shoes, and especially your white pointy flats… those could be very harmful if you kick somebody…
    even though some guys would love to try it…hehehe

  • OMG!!!! your 6:57 pointy flats, showing your toe cleavage , and pointy at same time !!! OMG.,.. theyre damn hot… just staring at your cleavage make weak guys like me would dream to go down and kiss your cleavage ending up with the pointy tip….. im serious..sorry no offence .. its my real feeling

  • these conscious shopping videos are my favourite videos you make! i purchased some skirts on thredup following this video – thanks for the inspo 🙂

  • I LOVE that Old Navy jumpsuit! The way you styled it actually reminds me of an outfit I wore obsessively as an early teen so I'm now filled with so much nostalgia! 🙂 You've inspired me to find that jumpsuit (or a similar one) so I can recreate that outfit, with my current, more "grown-up" style.

  • I’ve been binging your “Ingrid Dishes” segments on Pop Sugar, and I wish you would do more cooking videos! I love watching them and want to try all of them! You have a knack for cooking, and I’m always looking for new recipes that my husband will enjoy.

  • I never find such cute things on there! This gives me hope lol. You look amazing in those outfits. I died over the first three 😍

  • I'm so in love with that first outfit! And insanely jealous of your beautiful apartment. I live in NY and girl I know the apartment hunting struggle. Hope you're doing great, keep up the great videos!

  • One thing that I worry about when secondhand shopping is if I wear my new thrifted clothing, will I bump into the previous owners? 😂😂 maybe it’s just my social anxiety

  • I CANNOT GET OVER how much I love that you are a YouTuber that switched from hauls of new clothes to second hand shopping. I know there are youtubers that started their channels second hand, and the youtubers that bought new clothes and still do it.. but you've exposed way more people by going from one to the other!! Props to you.

  • i really appreciate how descriptive your "show more" section is
    the red outfit gives me cruella de vil vibes!
    the way you really styled each outfit, down to the lipstick color, shows how dedicated you are with your videos and your attention to detail
    i like how excited you are to talk about the pieces you found, it makes me more excited too
    i love your style Ingrid! you look amazing in the pieces you chose

  • One thing that always stymies me (when shopping online) is determining the weight or gauge of a garment. Is it your experience that most vendors provide that info? So many times, I've purchased a shirt/blouse, only to find, it's wayyy too thin. Thoughts? Any tips?
