Since I’ve began to focus more + more on featuring sustainable, socially responsible brands, I’ve gotten tons of amazing feedback from you guys! I love hearing your opinions, having your support and answering your questions. One recurring comment seems to be that often times, ethically made clothing costs more than most brands you can buy at the mall. This is true in many cases, mostly due to the fact that fast fashion is priced so low because of their unfair compensation of factory workers and use of sweatshops. Still, I totally understand the need to buy clothes within your budget, so I’m bringing you guys a solution…borrowing!
I don’t mean borrowing from your friends’ closets [ although that is one of my favorite pastimes! ], but borrowing clothes that you aren’t able or don’t want to purchase. My favorite new way to borrow clothes is via Haute & Borrowed! Here’s how it works…
THREE SIMPLE STEPS
- Select what type of borrowing “membership” you want, depending on the number of items you want to borrow at a time [ side note : you can downgrade, upgrade or cancel your membership at any time ].
- Keep the pieces you’ve borrowed for as long as you want and exchange them as many times a month as you want for new pieces!
- Once you send back your items with a prepaid label, you can pick new ones from brands like Blue Life, The Jetset Diaries and House of Harlow.
Not only does Haute & Borrowed make it easy and affordable to keep your wardrobe fresh, but it also contributes to the greater good. Borrowing instead of buying is great for the environment [ it reduces the pollution and exploitation that comes from production of clothes ] and great for your wallet. Win, win!
For this look, I borrowed a dress by The Jetset Diaries and a necklace by House of Harlow. To borrow my look and check out how Haute & Borrowed works, use code TRENDYCHICKADEE and get your first month for only $19!
