Do You Know Your BFF’s Style? Take the Goody Box Challenge!

share this:

Who wants to play stylist for a day? We’ve challenged our staffer Cass to see how well she knows her coworker and friend, Joanne’s, style. Cass took our style quiz and ordered a custom Goody Box for Joanne. You can try this with your friends too—it’s like a fashion show right at home!

Whether you’re shopping for yourself or a friend, our Goody Boxes are the easiest way to thrift. You can pick items yourself or have thredUP’s styling team hunt for you, have it shipped for free and only pay for the stuff you love! Oh, and returns are free too. Just tell us you or your friend’s style and we’ll do the rest. Holiday unboxing parties? Yes, please.

Check out how Cass styled Joanne and what they have to say about their styling experiences.


Cass’s Style Notes:

Do you feel like you have a good grasp on your friend’s personal style?
Yes! We like a lot of the same styles—my goal with this Goody Box was to push Joanne to try out these styles that she is always admiring from my closet.

Why did you pick these items for your friend?
I was aiming to find Joanne cute and comfy WFH outfits. My personal trick is to always wear a top that makes me feel good or a pair of printed pants (elastic bands only!!). Joanne and I moved in together recently, and she always compliments how nice I look for WFH. I wanted to pick out unique pieces that would make her feel good and look good for WFH too! Joanne is super stylish, but is hesitant when it comes to statement pieces. I wanted to challenge her with outside-the-box styles that I know Joanne wouldn’t typically pick for herself.


Is there anything in your friend’s box that you would want to keep for yourself?
I reallllly loved the Joie floral pants! I actually tried them on myself. They were super comfy and perfect for everyday wear.

Joanne’s Verdict:

How many items did you keep from your Goody Box? What was your favorite item?
I kept 3 of the items: the striped jumpsuit, the Madewell floral romper, and the J.Crew gingham one shoulder top. My favorite item was definitely the gingham one shoulder top.

What item surprised you most in your Goody Box?
I was surprised by how much I loved the J. Crew gingham top. When I first saw the top, I felt both the pattern and style were much bolder than what I would normally opt for. It was definitely something that I would’ve thought was too trendy for me if I saw it in stores. However, once Cass styled it for me with some simple high waisted black pants, I fell in love with the whole outfit!


How will you wear your new items?
The new items are cute and comfortable enough to WFH in or to wear for my virtual happy hours. They’re a pretty good upgrade from all the tech tees I’ve been rocking for the past few months. I can also totally see myself throwing on some of these items for an outdoor brunch.

Do you feel like your friend has a good grasp on your personal style?
Definitely! Cass knows the general style I like (basically her style), but also pushes me to be a little more adventurous with fun patterns, colors, and trends.


How did it feel to open a Goody Box and not know exactly what’s inside?
It was very exciting! I’ve been anticipating my Goody Box ever since Cass first told me about this. I didn’t know what to expect, but I completely trust Cass’s judgement when it comes to anything fashionable, so I knew I would love the items inside.
