Brand Next Door: Fashion Project

Tuesday, June 3, 2014

If you're a shopaholic like me, your closet is likely exploding with clothes, many of which you haven't worn since 2008 *cough* my original "real person" interview jacket. About twice a year, I take a few overflowing bags to consignment and anxiously watch them evaluate the things I was so excited to buy and now regret. I take as much or more to the Boys & Girls Club donation bins across the street from my apartment. Yep, super convenient. 

Not anymore. Fashion Project has come along and made it all so much easier - I send them my clothes, I pick the charity I want their proceeds to go to, FP sends me a $40 Nordstrom gift card for every five qualifying items and we both do good.

So many recent reports say Millenials - who hold much of America's disposable income - want to be connected to each other, to good causes and to awesome fashion. Fashion Project accomplishes all that. If you want to get Nordstrom GCs just for donating your awesome, gently-used stuff to people who will love it just as much as you do and pick the charities who will get 55% of its proceeds, I encourage you to check out Fashion Project. It's easier than selling through a phone app (no bartering!) and less awkward than over-using your peripheral vision to supervise someone checking your Trina Turk for lint and wrinkles. Real talk.

I'll be ordering my pre-paid bag...as soon as we're done with the wedding :). 

Who can resist Nordy bucks?

Fashion Project is social, too:

Hope you have a sunny week. I'm traveling to the east coast for work again and will be slow-posting until after the wedding festivities conclude, so thanks for bearing with me as I finish up the pre-reqs for my MRS degree ;).
