How to Update Your Fashion for Less with Tracy’s Closet
While I love fashion and buying new clothes, I also love saving money even more! Since we moved to Texas I’ve learned to love “thrifting” as my sis-in-law calls it. By thrifting she means purchasing clothing and accessories second hand for a fraction of the price! Some of my new favorite outfits are ones that I bought second hand—and you’d never even guess unless I told you that I had! For example I bought my blouse, necklace, and shoes all second hand in this picture I had snapped yesterday! (notice the Wyoming desert in the background–and pardon my squinty eyes! I should have been wearing my new Firmoo shades but that’s a different post….)
While hitting up the traditional methods, like garage sales, are some of my favorite ways to be a Fashionista for Less they are also very hit and miss. I also always bemoan the fact that there are no “search functions” in “real life”. You all know how much I love shopping online so when I heard about Tracy’s Closet which combines two of my new loves—buying fashionable clothes for less and doing it online—I had to check it out!
Right now they’re in early beta—which means that although the don’t have a ton of inventory, it’s growing quickly! I’ve found everything from darling purses, gorgeous shoes, and must have accessories to staples like sweaters and jeans. It’s going to be hard to choose how to spend my points!
A big bonus of the site is that you shop through points—which you earn by posting items that you don’t want any longer by snapping them with your smart phone and also through inviting friends! Unlike many other sites you get a percentage of your points from posting right off the bat—so you can start shopping as soon as you start clearing out your closet! The rest of the points will be awarded to you once your item sells. Plus there are no seller fees! I also like that they have cool little tags that show if things are new, been worn once, or vintage.
