Shop Your Favorite Bloggers' Closets
Reselling, thrifting, and consigning are big deals in my household. My family and I spend a lot of our free time scouring Goodwill for the best deals, listing our treasures on eBay to send to new homes, and frequenting consignment stores for name brands for less. There's a certain kind of rush that one gets when she finds the perfect addition to her closet for a fraction of the cost--I even labeled it my "strange addiction" when I first talked about it almost two years ago. This phenomenon is not new; in fact, it has become so popular these days because everyone is looking for a deal! While this rise makes shopping for unique treasures a little more difficult (I can't even begin to tell you how busy our local Goodwill is at times!), it also gives everyone the opportunity to buy and sell previously-loved items with ease. While my parents are experts on eBay, it does take a lot of time to learn and master the art of selling on that website. Plus, sometimes it can be hard to weed through the listings and land on those quality name brand items. How can you find the styles and brands you, your friends, and your favorite bloggers wear without purchasing full-price?
Enter Bloggers Closet.
Lauren from Style Elixir worked really hard to put this amazing website together and it seriously blows me away. Bloggers can create their own online "closets" where they can showcase and sell their pre-loved items in a smart, efficient, and easy way without the stress that other online stores can bring. You won't find crappy photos on here, either! These bloggers show their styled items so you can really get a feel for what these pieces actually look like on.
Of course, you don't have to be a blogger to purchase items--which makes it really fun for everyone to participate. You can search by blog, style, color, size, and more.
In an effort to simplify, clear out my wardrobe, and hopefully make a few extra dollars, I've created my own closet and filled it with some pre-loved goodness. You'll find a lot of Banana Republic, LOFT, New York & Co. and more with a wide range of items from which to choose.
Check out this LOFT blazer I'm selling--BRAND NEW with tags!
I hope you'll stop by and visit my closet and the other bloggers' closets. It's a great way to shop good quality items easily and it's even fun just to browse for inspiration. I just sold my first two items this morning, so act fast if you're interested :) I'm looking forward to browsing myself!
