I recently tried the online consignment store Twice for the first time.

I heard about Twice from a reader, and after checking out the site knew I wanted to try it out to see if it could be a great source of inexpensive quality clothing that I could share with my readers.
I of course waited until I could get great deal and that deal came Friday when they had a free shipping code available and I had $20 in credit available to spend thanks to two generous readers who had signed up through my links and enjoyed $10 off their first order in return.
I have used ThredUp several times now and love the new with tags section, so I decided to see what Twice had to offer in their NWT section. I was pleasantly surprised to see Twice also offered a large selection of new with tag clothing.
I picked up a pair of Gap dress pants for winter. I found a pair in my size for $15.95, on the Gap website currently a similar pair is selling for $41.97 on sale or $69.95 full price.
Working with those figures I saved $26.02 when compared to current sales.
I ordered the pants Friday evening and received them Wednesday. Considering mail doesn’t move on Sundays that means it took just 4 shipping days for me to receive my order.
The pants are beautiful and fit great. I would show you a picture of me wearing them but my kids have yet figure out how to take a good picture of mom, I am usually blurry or really tiny.
This is the first time I have dared to order pants from an online site simple because my curves and height are hard to fit sometimes. However I know Gap pants fit me well because I own a pair of their jeans and the Twice site made it incredibly easy to figure out if the pant size matched my figure by listing all the necessary pant measurements like inseam, waist and hips right beside the picture of the pants.
I will order from Twice again, in fact I will order more than Twice (sorry I couldn’t resist the pun 🙂 )
