Trade It in! Your Bridesmaid Dress That Is
If you're like me you've been in your fair share of weddings as a bridesmaid or maid of honor and own your share of ugly dresses. And even if they're not ugly, they're 'wedding-esque.' Here's a way to trade in your old bridesmaid dresses for a new little black dress. Sounds like a great idea doesn't it?
Send that worn (but not damaged) bridesmaid dress to NewlyMAID and get a little black dress (that you CAN wear without looking like an escapee from Bride Land) for approximately half price. NewlyMAID then upcycles your old bridesmaid dress.
What is upcycling? Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products (your bridesmaid dresses) into new materials or into new products with a higher value or higher environmental value. NewlyMAID will either donate your dress to someone who will wear it again or they will upcycle it by repurposing the fabric to create other products. A total win-win situation.
How do you trade your bridesmaid dress for a new little black dress? Browse through NewlyMAID's selection of 'little black dresses' and choose your favorite. Choices include sophisticated dresses for daywear, evening wear and anytime wear. How can NewlyMAID afford to do this? All the dresses they offer are made by The Dessy Group and are shipped direct from the manufacturer, allowing them to offer you significant savings because no retailer is involved (and no retailer markup.) The price of the dress also includes a mailer to send in your old bridesmaid dress.
So yes, you have to pay for the black dress. But you get a quality dress at about half the price you'd pay in a department store. Good deal? After all, that bridesmaid dress is likely going to sit in your closet until your niece needs a Halloween costume so... why not trade it in for a new dress that you can wear and wear often? And let NewlyMAIDupcycle your dress instead of letting it take up space in your closet?
