Material World

If you're a lover of high fashion, but only for a fraction of the price then Material World is the place for you! Material World is an online luxury consignment shop that is redefining the way the fashion industry works. They encourage their consumers to support fashion sustainability by understanding that every decision made is essential. For example, cleaning and storing your designer shoes properly so they could once be resold in excellent condition! 

One of their main focuses is to offer services that support a circular economy.  Material World created a subscription called, Material Box, which can be received either monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly. A Material Box is a curated package with five items that are tailored to your style. Almost all of the pre-owned designer pieces are always half the price of retail. After filling out our questionnaires, a Material World stylist picked out five incredible styles that were sent straight to our doors! Fortunately, they do not charge you upfront; only after you decide to keep a style. Before receiving our Material Box, we assumed that the items would either be out of style or out of our price range. However, when we received our boxes we were shocked at how amazing all of the pieces were and how even more amazing the prices were. Most items even had all orginal tags still on!

As bloggers and fashion lovers, we buy so many new pieces that we end up never wearing or giving away in a year or less. After this experience, we learned that the fashion industry is the second largest polluter right behind big oil! How crazy is that? Therefore, we love any idea that supports fashion sustainability! We are working towards changing our perspective on shopping, and the Material Box is a perfect place to start.
