I cannot contain my excitement anymore! So excited to share with all of you our latest obsession - Nuuly. What is Nuuly? It is a clothing rental subscription service carrying hundreds of top designers and labels to encourage you to express your clothing style any way you want. I think this is such an amazing concept. Here are three reasons why I LOVE it so far...
1. Anthropologie, Free People, Urban Outfitters! Nuuly is owned by URBN which owns all of these clothing stores and where all of their clothing options come from. If any of you know me, I would buy ALL of my clothes from Anthropologie, but now I can "rent" their clothes instead! How cool is that? I can snag a trendy coat and not spend the money on something that might go out of style sooner than later.
2. Try NEW things! Ok this is the fun part. I purposely chose 6 items that are edgy and can be styled so many different ways. I love this idea because I think what can hold some of us back on getting out of our comfort zone is that we are all too practical! Why spend that much money on a skirt I may not wear next year, when instead I buy the same darn black shirt that I can wear forever...BORING!!!!! It's weird but I feel like it's Christmas everyday because I can't wait to put something together from my items and then to think that in another month I will get 6 different items that I have chosen. And on a bonus note, I am getting compliments on my outfits as well :)
3. And lastly, sustainability. According to SustainYourStyle.org, "The fashion industry is the second largest polluter in the world, next to the oil industry." What??!!! I had no idea! I personally have no problem "sharing" clothes and if it helps the environment along with helping my wallet, then I am all in! And it is also simplifying my closet. Because let's be honest, we all have way too much stuff!
Here is a quick rundown of how it works. Check out their website here for further details and their FAQ page.

Okay so Nuuly!!
1) the clothes are amazing 2) it supports ethical and sustainable fashion 3) it’s super easy!
Those are my 3 reasons why I love it!!
Let me just explain how I found Nuuly! In my Fashion, Ethics and Consumption class we are learning about ethics in fashion and the ethical/unethical decisions made by retailers and workers in the fashion industry!! We learned that the fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the world, the first being the oil industry! After learning about the incredible pros and cons of the fashion industry, my teacher had two guest speakers come in talking about two separate issues within the fashion industry!
One speaker talked about how multiple designers and brands copy other brands’ designs in the fashion industry! The other speaker talked about how we can reduce the amount of waste we’re producing in the fashion industry! She then talked about brands who are, in essence, recycling clothes! So for example, Nuuly, thred up, and rent the runway! All of these brands are renting out their clothes and decreasing the amount of waste produced from the fashion industry because then customers don’t have to throw away or get rid of their clothes, they can just give them back!!
So after I heard about Nuuly I went to their website and was amazed!! First of all they have amazing clothes by anthropologie, free people, and urban outfitters! All incredibly expensive brands and you don’t even have to pay full price for 1 item and you get 6!!! A MONTH!! So I immediately emailed mama llam and told her about it because she’s in love with anthropologie!! And now we’re here!! You can rent coats/jackets, skirts, jeans, pants, sweaters, shirts, literally anything!! It’s seriously such a cool brand!! My favorite part about Nuuly is definitely all the clothes options and styles! They’re so unique and so fun!! And obviously I’m a big supporter because it’s working toward a more sustainable fashion industry!!!
Pluussss I’m not paying for full price free people clothing!!🎉
