Given that most major cities already recycle paper, batteries, and unsold copies of Get Fit with Jim Belushi, it’s odd that they don’t recycle the latest designer fashions, too. Today’s deal reverses this trend: for $25, you get $50 worth of upscale resale clothes at The Wardrobe Boutique, a recycled women’s clothing store on Spring Garden Street.

Fashionistas, fashionmongers, and fashionable fishmongers with an eye for quality will be happy to discover a bevy of designer items among The Wardrobe Boutique’s open, airy shop space, including Coach handbags and Michael Kors coats, often for under $50—a price that would prompt ghostly scoffing from the walls of most traditional retail establishments, accompanied by a discharge of ectoplasmic mucus. The average cost of purses is $10, while dresses middle out between $15 and $20; coats average $25. The Wardrobe Boutique doesn’t accept cast-off flip-flops and threadbare bathrobes; they vet each incoming item for quality and state of repair, ensuring that whatever you do purchase will be in fine fettle. In addition to being a treasure trove of low-cost, high-end threads, 100% of the store’s proceeds benefit The Career Wardrobe, a non-profit organization that provides women in transition (moving from welfare to work) with professional clothing and appropriate interview attire to land the job they need.

New clothes sustainably purchased can spruce up a slumping wardrobe while simultaneously comforting a sensitive conscience, a move known in the mixed-martial-arts world as the double-headed anaconda clinch. Whether it's glittering evening attire for crashing the Academy Awards or a sensible pair of walking shoes for running away from security, all manner of ultra-fine finery and accessories can be found in The Wardrobe Boutique.

This Groupon is not redeemable on the handmade items in the store, only the recycled fashions.

Reviews

Though it only opened in September, Fox 29 has featured The Wardrobe Boutique, and the shop's executive director, Sheri Cole, told Philadelphia City Paper:

  • “The boutique has an upscale atmosphere, just like The Career Wardrobe, where clients receive a personal shopper," she says. "Our clients do not receive cast-offs. We are about improving women's self-esteem, and making them feel confident and ready for the next step of their lives." – Felicia D'Ambrosio
