Closet Clean Out: There’s An App For That
How do you know it’s time for an official closet clean out? You’ve got an overflowing closet stuffed full of things you no longer wear. You love fashion and love to be recognized for your style and flair. You have a voracious appetite for a beautiful new piece — but nowhere to put it! And you really want to do more to lessen the burden on the planet. myWardrobe really wants to help you with your next closet clean out, and here’s how we’re going to do it.
Get your wardrobe in shape!
There are 2 benefits to cleaning out your closet periodically. First, you gain space. With more real estate, that just means you can focus on acquiring pieces that are truly missing from your collection, and second, you’ll feel great! We all know how awesome it feels when you do some spring cleaning and rid yourself of old or unused items that are no longer needed (by you!)
One woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure!
That stuff you never wear? Make a big pile… then break down that pile into three separate piles; high quality (sellable), good quality but not sellable (donation), and worn out (recycling). Take that pile of sellable pieces, once cleaned and hung, and snap some pics of each item and upload them onto myWardrobe Online. Once the posts are approved, they’re up for sale! Now head back to listings to look for the key pieces you’re missing…
The best stylists will tell you, you have to start with the basics.
Having good quality basic pieces that can be worn in different ways is the start to a very versatile wardrobe. Establish that you have all the basics first, and then expand your wardrobe from there — make sure you have some good neutral pieces to complement the basics — and then add in the fun and not so necessary pieces that make a great fashionista. Search for items that inspire you, ‘like’ them, follow the seller so you can see the rest of the items they have for sale. You can see the items you’ve liked under YOU in messages. If you have a question about a piece, you can message the seller to ask for more details. This way you can create your own following and expand your network!
For women who love to thrift shop & buy vintage, myWardrobe Online is a great resource for finding high quality second hand clothing without having to search the racks. Easy access to a wide variety of styles and brand names goes hand in hand with saving money. The Kudos you’ve earned from selling those great pieces from your closet? Now you can spend them on your next great find! It’s a win-win situation!
Help the Planet in 3 Easy Ways
If that doesn’t make you feel good, you can rest easy in the knowledge that you’re helping the planet in these 3 ways. By keeping good fashion in circulation, you’re helping reduce the amount of waste going into the landfill, and that’s worth celebrating! The less we buy, the less pollution we create. By slowing down the fast fashion industry we can reduce air and water pollution considerably, and save millions of litres of clean water every year. Buy better quality and that means you can buy less. By purchasing quality items, rather than pieces that aren’t built to last the season, you can curb your consumption and save money at the same time!
