Sustainability with DesignerShare

Happy Monday, DS Darlings! In honor of Earth Day (which was yesterday), today’s post tackles a more serious issue: the intersection of sustainability and fashion. It should come as no surprise to anyone who reads Vogue, Elle, or any mainstream news outlet that we are in the middle of an environmental crisis. There are literally islands of garbage floating in the Pacific ocean. Terrifying, right? You probably also know that fast fashion chains like Forever21, ZARA, and Old Navy greatly contribute to the tremendous amount of waste that has accumulated worldwide. However, we believe that everyone deserves to look and feel their best and dress how they like. Fast fashion provides accessibility to lower income people so they can also look their best. Not everyone can afford to invest in a designer capsule wardrobe. How do we solve this...

#WhyIRent with Julie Chez

Why do you love renting out your items? I was at first a bit terrified. Fashion is my “thing”…and my pieces are like my treasured pieces of art! But once I popped that first rental cherry, I realized I was in good hands. I have rented out several of my most beloved bags, and have had zero problems! What is your favorite part about DesignerShare? Putting my fashion addiction to good use! It’s also a genius system for experiencing a great piece for a fraction of the cost. In the world of social media it can be way to easy to wear a great dress only once! How would you describe your overall style? I love my ruffles with a side of rock n roll. I adore feminine details like puffy sleeves and full skirts. I adore leather pants and bomber jackets. Boho chic has also been a favorite too. I love it all…hence the “shopaholic”...
