Not your average consignment store.

If you, like us, are a sucker for designer fashion but don’t always have the cash to splurge, Upstitch has the solution.

Upstich is a new online platform, allowing users to buy and sell pre-owned luxury fashion.

But it’s not just like any ol’ consignment store. 

To list an item for sale on Upstitch, it must come under a list of approved brands. Think along the lines of Burberry, Hermès, Josh Goot, Acne Studios, Chloé, Miu Miu, Ellery and more. This makes the shopping experience both exclusive and very well-curated.

But that’s not all. What also sets this platform apart is its list of registered sellers. 

Currently, you can shop the wardrobes of blogger, Hermione Underwood; co-founder of Stylerunner, Julie Stevanja; and stylist, Tarra Chong. 

We had a little stalky stalk and found some GREAT stuff like this Ellery jacket and this Givenchy clutch.

Subscribers can also follow their favourite sellers, getting notified when a new piece from their wardrobe is added to the site.

The Upstitch motto is simple: you shouldn’t have to invest in a piece and wear it every day for a year to get your money’s worth. Invest in it, wear it and love it, then sell it to make room for something as equally fabulous.

Accordingly, it's not just the closets of bloggers that can be purchased, us mere mortals can hire out the services of Upstitch. The company will edit your images and help you resell those pre-loved designer items that just don’t get enough wear. A percentage of the sale will then go straight back into your pocket. It’s basically a win-win.

With Upstitch at your fingertips, there really is no excuse not to have a Pinterest-worthy closet all year ’round.
