tiny flaw? i see nothing

When browsing ThredUP you may come across an item with an asterisk beside it, noting that the item has a small flaw, the details of which are specified on the page.

This thick, 100% silk Tommy Bahama top was under $20 because of a few tiny pulls in the fabric, and unless you are looking, you would never notice them. Don't let the thought of a tiny flaw deter you from a purchase, ThredUP has a 12 Point Quality Checklist, and style experts that triple check each item. If it's listed, you will be pleased with the quality.

This week I am participating in the ThredUP $150 style challenge. See my other looks here!
