Checks & Leather




A few stressful weeks and rent-a-truck later, it feels good to be back in LA! It also feels good to have located and unpacked most of my clothes, although I’m sure I’ll unearth a few stragglers here and there. It also made me realize just how much crap we’ve accumulated over the years! I mean, we’re two people and a dog…why do we have all this stuff? Even the dog had his own giant box full of junk. I really need to unload some clothing items I don’t wear anymore but am not quite sure where to do it. Where’s your favorite places to sell secondhand clothes and accessories?

Also, watch company Daniel Wellington is offering 15% off with code ‘alteratnsneededand’. The watch I’m wearing is from their new smaller sized Dapper series, which at 34mm, is great for small wrists!

    Moving is hard work, but it’s nice to downsize your stuff. I usually sell my nicer second-hand clothes on eBay and send my less nice stuff to Thredup. Some people swear by Poshmark, but I’ve never sold anything on it, only bought.

    Hey Kelly,

    I’ve been a long time reader of yours. You can sell your second hand items on Poshmark and on!

    have a nice week!

    For Designer items, I love using The Real Real. The service is super easy to use.

    Ebay for others, but I’ve also heard good things about Thred Up and Poshmark.

    Hauling around a ton of clothes is always, always my least favorite part of moving. I try my best to actively thin out my wardrobe anytime a move is approaching, so it’s getting better, but the struggle remains. Thanks for sharing, I really like the way that watch looks with the leather jacket.
