flipping out

Have you heard of Threadflip? It's an online marketplace for buying and selling pre-loved clothing and accessories. I recently made it a personal goal to purge my closet by at least half, so I decided to give this site a try. I like Threadflip because their listing and shipping process is really simple. You decide your price (they take a 20% commission) and they provide you with a pre-paid shipping label that you stick on a USPS Priority Box and drop off at your local post office (mine is a block away, so it's really easy for me!). It's like an online Buffalo Exchange, except you don't have to drive to a store, haul your bags of clothes in, or wait in line.

My only problem is that I initially joined Threadflip to pare down my closet, but now I'm addicted to browsing for clothes! I've been able to restrain myself from clicking on that "add to cart" button for the most part, but I couldn't resist these Loeffler Randall rain booties. I've had my eye on them for a while and ended up getting them at a super steal. The day after they arrived, it rained pretty heavily (well, for LA), so I think it was meant to be.

You can check out my Threadflip closet here. You can also see all the items that I've added to my "loves" list - and do me a favor by buying them before I do!
