If you seek a winter wardrobe refresh, the enjoyment of rugging up in a new coat can be experienced at a lower cost economically and environmentally by buying vintage. Engaging in the sharing economy through clothing hire (think UBER, AirBNB) can allow you to hire/rent a show-stopping coat for a special night out.
No more last-minute, regrettable, "I-only-got-to-wear-it-once" purchases. A longer garment life-cycle. Less landfill. Reducing consumption. Buying less - but still getting those new outfit feels.
How it works: Buy a dress (or coat or maternitywear etc). Trade-in the dress (like a trade-in car) for another one. Get 80% of its value as a store credit discount towards your next item/s. Store credits are good forever. So essentially you get to wear say, your $500 dream dress for a $100 (20%) hire fee. You are welcome to keep the dress for as long as you like. We only ask that you care for it in the same way you would if you borrowed a dress from a friend!
