I told you all last week that I was trying to find a way to sell some of my clothing items.  I have lots of stuff that I hardly wear.

Example 1: My feet shrunk half a size after having HJ.  I use to have a high heel obsession.  They are cute shoes, but they don’t fit.

Example 2:  Although I am back to pre-pregnancy weight (eeks, 2 more pounds), shortly after having HJ, I lost a lot.  I kept holding onto those size “00” things thinking “someday”.  But duh.  Except for that short 1 year, I haven’t fit a size “00” over my thigh in 16 years.  So, goodbye beautiful new jeans!

Example 3: I can no longer get free drinks off of having my ta-tas popping out of a top.  Maybe if I really tried I could, but I don’t have that level of self-confidence anymore.  Boobs, stay in the shirt.

Example 4: My bedroom is considered the master bedroom.  With a walk in closet.  There is not an inch to spare in there.  I am quite certain it is supposed to be shared with 2 people.

This led to me giving vinted a shot.  And now I am in love with it.  Basically, I upload pics of items I am willing to part with.  Then, it gets added to “my closet“.  After that, it sort of takes on a pinterest vibe.  You are able to look at the feed, or search for certain items/brands.  You can follow people and/or like items.

Simple, huh?

So far this week, I sold:

-A swimsuit- 2 years back, I forgot to back a swimsuit for a weekend at the lake, this was the only one in the store.  Even though it was always too big, I held onto it for 2 years.

-A top-the shoulders made me look like a linebacker

And I swapped a sweater dress for a cute pink striped top from the GAP.

Hopefully this will help me clean out all my clothes that no longer fit!  Out with the old, in with the new :).

    I love a lot of your clothes, but I haven’t been able to fit into a 00 since before I knew that was a size, haha! You did introduce me to it and I finally found a pair of inexpensive brown sandals, so thank you! Now, if only they’d get here…

  2. Sounds like a very cool web site and idea! :)
