I’m Down With Upscale Resale (+ Giveaway!)
Wita has a pretty fab wardrobe, and I say that without being all look-at-me-and-my-awesome-taste because, well, the majority of her closet is filled with hand-me-downs. Yep, adorable hand-me-downs are responsible for about 60% of what Wita wears on a daily basis. In fact, Wita’s wearing at least one hand-me-down in each of the above photos.
I love me some hand-me-downs, but I realize not everyone is in the position to receive them. The next best thing? Resale.
I’ve become more and more interested in resale over the years, mainly because it’s insane how quickly kids grow out of their clothes. From the mouth of Sharon Schneider (CUTE PIXIE ALERT), “I love organic, well-made clothes, but as a mom who tries to avoid conspicuous consumption and who wants to raise my kids to be socially responsible, I have often lamented the cost and waste of baby clothes.”
Sing it, sista. So Sharon and her sister Sandra started Moxie Jean.
Moxie Jean makes it easy for busy moms to buy and sell high quality, like-new kids’ clothes any time. Founded by moms, Moxie Jean takes pride in offering only immaculate clothing that moms will be truly thrilled to receive–and back it up with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Moxie Jean makes it quick and easy to grab everything needed to dress kids from birth to size 8, from play time to Sunday supper and even special occasions like weddings and holidays. Every order includes a free, postage-paid Moxie Jean Mailer Bag to send in the clothes your kids have outgrown and receive credit toward the next size up, or those interested in selling clothes can request a free bag through the website.
I checked it out myself, and first off, can I just say THANK YOU MOXIE JEAN for building a website that is clean and easy to navigate. I’ve seen some real doozies in regards to resale websites – something to the effect of MySpace vomiting on Craigslist. Not good, my friends. This one is so clean and lovely and just, yes. Secondly, good stuff. I’m especially found of the Designer Room. In fact, I found this pretty Isabel Garreton party dress for Wita there.
Now, someone invite us to a party!
