Share Closets with Women all Over the United States

There’s a new site, Bib + Tuck, created by Brown University graduate Sari Azout and her friend Sari Bibliowicz, that allows you to exchange items using a simple system.


Published:

My best friend and I have always swapped clothes. We have the same taste, and we’re relatively the same size, so it works out well. We never want to wear the same dress to different weddings, so making a trade saves us both time and money. Sharing closets is an economical way to double your wardrobe, and now you can do so with other women from all over the United States. There’s a new website, Bib + Tuck, created by Brown University graduate Sari Azout and her friend Sari Bibliowicz, that allows you to exchange items using a simple system.

The website allows ladies to take photos of their clothing, accessories, jewelry and shoes and put them up for grabs on the site. Azout and Bibliowicz got the idea for the project after living in the same apartment building and swapping clothing on a regular basis. Members assign a value in bucks for items that they want to trade (the bib part), and when they sell, they use that earned value to purchase another item posted on the site (the tuck part). You never have to spend any money (besides shipping costs). These are not your average frumpy dresses and worn out shoes found at some consignment stores. There are some real bargains on designer goods like Brian Atwood pumps, Herve Leger dresses, Stella McCartney bags and Dolce & Gabbana clutches, plus one-of-a-kind vintage finds.

You have to sign up and be accepted to participate in the site, but it’s an easy and quick process. Once you’re registered, you’re expected to style (or Instagram) the items you will be selling. Take a look at some of our favorite picks for an idea of what you can find. bibandtuck.com
