Your beloved wardrobe is no different than a prized collection of baseball cards or coins. I do not blame you for having trouble parting with your clothes, especially those with sentimental value. Up until now, cleaning out your closet has been quite challenging, it is with great pleasure to introduce you to thredUP, the simple solution to making room in your closet!
When your closet begins to overflow, request a “Clean Out Kit” to your doorstep and begin packing away your once loved fashions. Send back the bag with the included prepaid shipping label, and begin earning cash for the pieces you are no longer wearing. Professional buyers set the asking price, similar to a high-end consignment shop, however you have one week to make adjustments as you please. When consumers shop your goods, use the money to purchase gently used styles for yourself on the thredUP storefront, or transfer the funds to your PayPal account. If items in your kit do not sell, reclaim your possessions or allow the hire-ups to donate your garments to a good cause. If this is not “cleaning out your closet made easy,” I do not know what is!
Over the weekend I took this pair of Alice and Olivia shorts for a test run. These babies are valued at over $150, and I scored them for just under $40 at thredUP. They were beautifully packaged and in excellent condition – it doesn’t get any sweeter than that! I styled them with the same white blouse from last week’s post “Denim Shorts and Flatform Sandals.” If you look closely, you’ll notice that the top looks completely different. That is what happens when you wear it the correct way the second time around! I forgot to affix the ruffle over my biceps in last week’s post…oops. Anyway, I polished off the look with a pair of lace-up gladiator wedges and a contrasting blue purse. After wearing out my cognac gladiators last summer, it seemed very fitting to welcome the spring with a new black pair.
My shopping experience was pretty stellar at thredUP. In addition to Alice and Olivia, other notable fashions include those by: Free People, Michael Kors, BCBG, Trina Turk, and Tibi. The next time your closet reaches maximum capacity, request a “Clean Out Kit” and save yourself the hassle. I plan to do so as early as next week, and will report back on the process. Happy Spring Cleaning, or should I say, Happy Spring Shopping?!
