NewlyMaid - Why Didn't I Think of That?!?

"You know, you'll totally be able to wear that again!" is one of the biggest lies we will ever hear as women.  I can tell you, from personal experience, that no matter how flattering, pretty, un-hideous a bridesmaid dress is, you will, in-fact, never wear it again.  When 27 Dresses came out, I laughed, because although my six dresses do not compare in numbers, I could totally relate!  I have since, parted ways with four of the dresses, freeing up much needed closet space.  I have to admit that two remain, taking up about two feet of space in Mr. T's closet, (he is an understanding husband!).
You may have heard about this awesome idea already, but I had to share; someone finally came up with a plan to turn those un-wearable dresses into something great!  NewlyMaid makes it easy to find the perfect dress, (that you will wear), while freeing up precious storage space, in four easy steps:
  1. Pull those dresses out of the back of your closet!  NewlyMaid accepts bridesmaid, mother of the bride, special occasion, and prom dresses from most dress manufacturers.
  2. Create an account on and order a pre-paid mailer to send in your unwanted dress.  Don't forget to read the instructions for packaging your dress .  Your package is pre-paid, so you need only drop it off at your local FedEx Kinkos!
  3. You will receive an email confirming that NewlyMaid has accepted your dress (as long as you have followed the guidelines, you should have no issues!), and *poof*, like magic, your special pricing will be unlocked.
  4. Shop!  Shop!  Shop!  You now have access to the perfect little black dress!  Choose from six styles, order, receive, enjoy!
"What happens to my old dress?" you ask?  NewlyMaid recycles qualifying dresses that are 100% polyester.  They have also partnered with Clothes4Souls, which brings clothes, and shoes, to people in need, around the world.

It's truly a win-win for everyone!

  1. I was thinking about trying it but I'm so attached to my clothes. I'm like a hoarder in training.
