Do you ever see something designed/created/developed and think to yourself “how the hell did I not think of that?!”. It’s something so incredibly genius, but it’s also so simple & basic that you’re beating yourself up for not having done it first. You see it, & it’s just duh…
Ya, that’s how I feel about Depop.
What the hell is Depop? Um, hiiii… it’s only my latest app/shopping/selling obsession.
You know that app Instagram? Well it’s that, but for shopping.
Like I said, pure effing GENIUS.
I downloaded it about a week ago after seeing a few of my fave European bloggers were all about it (those Euros, always one step ahead!) & I am hooked.
The process is pretty straightforward: you post a cool picture of the item your selling, use filters to edit it all pretty, & share it live w/ a description of the item + how much your selling it for. Then, this is where it gets fun- people start liking your pictures, commenting/asking questions about the item, offering swaps (if they have something you want on their Depop profile, you can trade!), & buying your pre-loved gems!
It’s so quick & easy it’s almost a joke. Plus, you get to keep your clothes in your possession while you’re waiting for it to sell. I don’t know about you guys, but there is nothing more I hate than going to my closet to look for something & realize I got rid of it. With this app situation, if I change my mind, I can just delete the picture & hang it back up in it’s rightful place.
…& lastly, the best best part of all, nothing on the site sucks. You don’t have to scroll through peoples nasty old undergarments to stumble across one gem, it’s all rad vintage stuff/ designer pieces/ sick art/ coffee table books/ vintage cameras/ etc. etc.
Some of my personal fave pieces currently up on my profile include these H&M patchwork skinnies I just added today after A LOT of serious convincing by my sister that I had too pare down on my denim collection, this moon phase beanie that would be great for Fall/Winter, these never worn MIA limited edition suede boots that are just a teensy bit too small on me (**tear**), this super sick vintage polaroid camera, & these FCUK snakeskin slides (worn once!!!).
So… are you gonna download it? If so, be sure to follow me cause I am adding new stuff on the daily :).
P.S. Depop did NOT sponsor this post, I am just really excited about it (can you tell?) & had to share!!
