Jumpstart your Capsule Wardrobe
If you are just joining our second-hand summer capsule wardrobe challenge here’s a list of resources to inspire and help you on your journey!
Unfancy– Caroline breaks down what a capsule wardrobe is in a clear and thoughtful way. She also has some great style inspiration on her blog.
Into Mind- A great 10 step series on clarifying personal style with an emphasis on minimalism and responsible fashion.
Project333- An awesome post on the power of less to keep you inspired!
Cladwell- A fun and easy to use tool to help you build and make the most of your capsule wardrobe.
ThreadUP- A super easy way to sell all those clothes you’ll be purging. (They send you a clean out your closet bag in the mail and you can send them your stuff to sell without having to pay shipping!) Also, a great place to find second-hand treasures.
Poshmark- Is a social platform you can use to sell the cast offs from your closet (and earn serious cash, I sold an old dress and made $40 last night!) + Find new-to-you pieces from the closets of women across the U.S.
Swap-a-roo- Similar to Poshmark, another social media forum to sell and buy second-hand goodies.
Goodwill- Give them a call and they will come pick up all that stuff that’s gathering dust in your closet and sell it to use the profits to benefit the community.
Facebook and Nextdoor trading groups - Are also be a great way to use the net to find new-to-you clothes and pick them up locally. You may even make a new friend in your neighborhood!
Local Thrift Stores: In Indianapolis, City Thrift and Value World are a couple of great options. In Birmingham, try Sozo Trading Company or Lovelady Thriftstore.
Local flea markets- Can also have some surprisingly great finds!
Clothing Swaps- One fun way to purge old stuff and find some new favorite items for your capsule is do consider getting a group of friends together and doing a clothing swap.
We are NOT experts on capsule wardrobes or shopping second-hand, so this is not an exhaustive list! As a matter of fact, we would LOVE for you to point us in the direction of other great resources that should be added!
