What I Actually Bought #001
Dear Gentle Reader,
Welcome to the very FIRST edition of What I Actually Bought.
Why are we no longer a resale marketplace?? During the 1.5 years of working on our platform, we came across a very unique insight from our very own users (you!!). Across the board, you cared more about learning what our Sellebs (sellers) had in their closets rather than owning those exact items from their closets. Most of you were coming to our platform for INSPO on what to buy and wanted to know what was hot 🥵; you came to Selleb to access fashion intel from those with fabulous taste rather than to hit “add to cart” 🛒
In response, we present and welcome you to…wait for it….
✅ Selleb 2.0 ✅ !!
The NEW Selleb will be ALL about getting/sharing inspo from those you admire, and we are starting with friends. If you find yourself curious about what your friends and friends of friends are buying (and loving and hating), you’re in the right place. As this is not a wishlist or paid-to-influence platform, users will be asked to show proof of purchase via receipts. In a nutshell, we’re currently building a receipt-based platform. Just you wait! In the meantime, we’ll be sending out a weekly newsletter. It will be a rundown of new finds, favs, sales you can’t miss, outfit inspo, and everything in between.
For this edition, we’ll be sharing recent fav purchases, items on our mind (we’re in a spending moratorium rn as we are allocating our $$ to building product… so pls get them on our behalf!!), and sales you need to pay attention to this week. Let’s talk prod.
If you signed up for this newsletter, you’ll also get EARLY access to our new product once it’s ready. It’s also a waitlist of sorts… enjoy!!
***this week’s list is exclusively from The RealReal — let’s pls take advantage of their mis-pricing & obscene discounts as buyers because well, we’ve all been fleeced as sellers. Major flops below, many of you can probs relate. ***
Ugh should have just kept our shit…
The Row Bag: This must be some kind of joke… Run don’t walk!!!
Theory Layered Blazer: IDC how hot it is, it’s always blazer season. This cute layered blazer from Theory is literally $30. Cheaper than at the Salvation Army. Theory is heavily discounted on TRR, so again, take advantage.
Unravel Project Jeans: Can lace-up jeans make a comeback already? We’re planning on christening their return with a pair like these. Also a great deal.
Selleb Sisters xoxo
