Clean Out Your Closet for a Cause

We here at Eloquii HQ are big believers in the annual “Do I really need this?” wardrobe gut check. Dresses that haven’t seen the light of day in way too long? Jeans that might bring back good memories but that don’t actually get any air time? Your closet should be your happy place, we say, filled to the brim with things you love to look at and to wear. January feels like the perfect month to take inventory and start on the right foot. But before you actually toss anything, we ask you to take a cue from a tradition we’ve been committed to for the past few years: Donate instead of throw. Our favorite organization to contribute to? Dress for Success. You may have noticed we never have sample sales. That’s because we donate our samples to this wonderful, woman-empowering nonprofit. If you’re not familiar, they’re an international organization that arms women with the professional tools and wardrobes to succeed in the workplace. To date they’ve helped over 925,000 women (!).

Great wardrobe, good vibes—it’s a win win.
