Here at swap.com, we celebrate consignment everyday with the core values of who we are. The average American throws away 70 pounds of clothing and other textiles annually. This leaves 85% of textiles in our landfill.  What a waste! Our CEO Juha Koponen, wanted to make an impact in improving this epidemic. That meant creating the best online consignment store ever (that’s us). We want to ensure that you save your pocket books and the environment, all while looking fashionably great. With that in mind, consignment has multiple benefits. Below are 7 reasons why shopping secondhand is beneficial. (more…)
Not only is faux fur on trend this season, but there are so many benefits to owning faux fur over real fur. Did you know that faux fur is easier to clean and lasts longer than real fur? Faux fur is also less expensive and you don’t have to worry about how you store it during the warmer months. The best part is that we offer hundreds of fabulous faux fur items on Swap.com just like these one-of-a-kind staples.
If you are new to owning faux fur, this luxurious black faux fur coat by Donna Salyers is the perfect item to start with. I guarantee you will want to wear this one on so many different occasions. Need a coat to throw over a formal dress for a winter wedding? Or, a coat to go with your long sleeve, silk blouse and jeans for dinner and a night out? Maybe you wear sneakers and leggings during the day but want to add some pizzazz to your look when you’re running out the door? This coat is one that should belong in everyone’s closet!
Didn’t go to fashion week? Me neither! Luckily you do not have to attend the shows to sport the latest runway looks. Most of the looks on the runway are pricey, like over $1000 pricey, but on Swap.com you can find all of the top trends for less. Bright colors, statement prints, eye catching fabrics – these stand out trends for Fall 2018 will not disappoint.
This silk leopard tank by Banana Republic retails on our site for only $5.90! This tank is the perfect underpinning for any solid colored cardigan or jacket. I would personally wear this tank with navy so the silver sheen really pops! Animal print can be loud (no pun intended) especially printed on a dress or on a pair of pants. Sometimes the best way to show a flashy trend is through layering. However, if you are looking to stand out for a night out on the town, then this tank will do just fine solo with your favorite pair of jeans and heels! (more…)
No one is as good at saving money as thrifters are. We all love a good deal, and what better deal than a free pair of shoes? We’re giving away a pair of black, leather booties to one special thrifter on our Youtube page this week.
This isn’t just a regular pair of booties. The leather is real, so it’s incredibly soft, almost like butter. Also, the shoes have a tall platform, and they’re comfortable to walk in, making them perfect for taking on the workplace or the town in style. And the most impressive fact about these shoes: they retail at almost $400. Hello, luxury.
How can you win?! Head on over to our Youtube video and guess the brand of the shoes in the comments of the video. The first person to guess correctly by Friday, January 12th will win the pair of shoes.
