Many things probably sound more appealing than cleaning out your closet: Perhaps a root canal or being trapped in an elevator with screaming Justin Bieber fans. But what if you had a professional by your side to help you curate what to part with and what to hang onto? Now imagine you got paid for it? That’s a real scenario, thanks to The RealReal, an online service that raids the world’s most fashionable closets to give its members access to previously owned clothing, jewelry and accessories from some of the world’s best designers. Consignors get paid a high percentage of the retail value for each piece they part with, and just starting, real-life stylists come straight to fashionable Dallasite’s homes to help rummage through closets and clear out the castoffs. And as a member of The RealReal, you can use the money you make from clearing out clutter to scoop up amazing fashions from Chanel, Lanvin, Balenciaga and more at dazzling discounts. Whether you’re consigning or buying, it’s a fabulous service, with all the convenience of online commerce plus the comfort of in-person, stylista service. And men’s accessories are now available in a weekly sale called Real Men Mondays. Sign up at therealreal.com or call 855.435.5893.
