One thing we pride ourselves on at M.M. is that our clothes are made to last. Not only are the fabrics the best of the best, but the styles themselves are timeless. That said, we can’t predict how your personal style (or need for certain clothing) might change, and sometimes, we all have to say goodbye to a dress that no longer fits, even if it’s still in good condition—but we don’t want to just throw it in the trash. That’s why we decided to launch M.M.LaFleur Second Act.
Much like thredUp (which we’re huge fans of—more on that in a minute), M.M.LaFleur Second Act is a marketplace where you can buy or sell gently used M.M. pieces to other adoring M.M. customers. We love the idea of having a resale marketplace on our site, because it means present and future customers get to enjoy even more M.M., whether it’s new or second-hand. This is something our community has been asking for for a long time, and we’re so excited to finally have a great way to offer it.
With Second Act, we simplified the listing process and made it easy to sell clothing online. Instead of having to take garment measurements, write about product details, orchestrate an elaborate photoshoot, or respond to questions about the pieces, the platform utilizes photos from our product catalog and offers up prewritten descriptions. You only need to answer a few questions about the condition of your garment, including photos of any irregularities, such as stains or damages. Once someone buys your used clothing, you ship it directly to the buyer.
We still recommend using thredUp to resell all non-M.M. clothes you no longer have a need for, and we believe in this mission so deeply, we include a pre-paid thredUp clean out kit with every M.M. order. You can send them your bags of clothes knowing they’re not headed to a landfill.
