Wardrobe Rotation with
New Year, new you, new choices! Isn’t that what the turn of the calendar is all about? Shedding the old of the past and welcoming the new year full of changes and possibilities. At the end of last year, I decided to get a head start on change. Firstly, by the famously frenzied, frivolous, and celebratory month of December, I knew I would be putting a moratorium on any shopping in the new year. It was less about the financial and more about environmental aspect for curbing my habit. And partly because I had begun to feel bad about my barely worn clothes never getting their turn in the limelight – or even making it out the door at all, only to be buried under new trendy things or remain in the graveyard of all those pieces that are“new with tags” and forgotten. To psych myself up, I thought Sprout Collection would be the perfect step to ween myself off a habitual shopping problem. The Sprout Collection is a fashion rental subscription service whereby clients pay a monthly free, select garments to wear, enjoy, then pop them back in the mail. No dry cleaning or shipping and return fees. Wear – return – repeat.

Sprout Collection offers three packages to suit your needs. The Rejuvenate package costing $119 per month offers the choice of four items each month, to be exchanged for new pieces the following month. The Revitalize package coming in at $199 per month is for the woman who does it all and is a lover of fashion. With unlimited access to styles, this package allows the subscriber to stay on top of trends and experiment with personal style whilst being economically and environmentally conscious. For one time rentals, they offer the Renew package, for someone who has a big event or important meeting coming up. Business or pleasure, this option at $79 is great for those occasions that might need a little extra help without the commitment of buying elsewhere.
