Anyway, here's my price list (though it's not accurate due to the whole missing pants issue, and as you can see, those pants were the bulk of the cost):
These aren't the exact same pants, but they're close, in case you're wondering why I am so obsessed with $150 pants:
I did go and consign with them this time too. They make it sooooo easy. You literally just put the items you're consigning (clean, like new) in the prepaid mailing bag along with any items you don't want to buy, with a little form you fill out, and then a week or so later, they email or text you an offer on your item(s). What's great is that if you think they're not paying you enough, you can opt to have them send it back to you for a mere $2 per item. I've only had one item that I thought they were NOT paying me fairly for, by the way, that I chose to have returned.
For those who are new here and want to see what my other Material World shipments have been like, here's Box #1, Box #2, Box #3, and Box #4. I prefer Material World over Stitch Fix because the price points are similar, but I get designer and premium brands with Material World, and honestly, the items being consigned actually makes it better for me from an environmental stand point. I mean, I know, there are a TON of things I do that are killing the planet anyway, but I read a quote somewhere that went something like this: "We don't need a few people reducing their carbon footprint perfectly; we need billions of people reducing their carbon footprint imperfectly." (I'm sure I'm bastardizing the quote).
Basically, it's okay if you're only doing a few things to cut back. Maybe you recycle and do your best to conserve water or are one of those people that ACTUALLY remembers your reusable shopping bags at Trader Joe's. Small efforts multiplied by millions or billions, will yield large results. So no, I'm not going to give up meat and I don't drive an electric car, but I can find other ways to be less wasteful (all of my appliances including my air conditioning are the highest level of energy efficiency you can buy, for example, so I'm not using as much, and I have switched to buying about half of my produce from local farms).
But, even if saving the environment is not at the top of your list (I'm not here to judge you for it, by the way), saving money on designer clothing is definitely rewarding in its own way! If you're already a fan of subscription boxes like Wantable and Stitch Fix, I highly suggest you check out Material World. Even in spite of this snafu, I have nothing but good things to say about them! (And you don't have to use their service to consign with them, by the way).
See you on Monday!
