Give Back and Get Some: Fashion Project



Have you guys heard of the Fashion Project that is in partnership with Nordstrom?  Well as of two days ago I had never heard of it.  Pretty much it is an online consignment store that people like us can send stuff to.  

It started in 2012 after the cofounders, Anna Palmer and Christina Rizk, found a brand new Alice and Olivia jacket at a local thrift store under a pile of discarded items.  They thought what would happen if they could maximize this jacket's resale value then donate some of the proceeds to charity and voila the Fashion Project was born.  Oh and they did graduate from Harvard Law so the founders are pretty legit. 


Well the exciting thing about this project is that for every 5 items you send in, you get a $40 gift card to Nordstrom.  The items just have to be in nearly-new or great condition and exceed $50 in original price, don't worry there is a list of brands that are accepted on their site so it's pretty easy to figure out whats acceptable and whats not.   

So if I haven't already convinced you, 55% of the profits of the items sold get donated to the charity of your choice #winwin.

See below for exact steps - I know I have already gone through my closet about 5 times looking for items to donate (really wish I just didn't make that trip to Goodwill last week...)

  17. Hey, great post! In response to your comment on my skincare post; Prescriptives is an AMAZING line! (I've been using it for 8 years now.) It's wonderful because it was formulated by doctors and dermatologists, everything feels amazing on my skin. Granted it's different for everyone, but I promise you'd find something you love. Their serum (super line preventer xtreme) is the BEST! Feels amazing for all skin types, it's literally life changing :) ha! Hope that helped, xo
