Drop #17

 Hi friendssss ——

August is upon us and for a lot of us it means one thing: Back-To-School Shopping!! Of course school supplies shopping is infinitely exciting too but the sartorial kind is where our heart’s at ;)

It’s like 95 degrees and we have to start envisioning ourselves in autumnal outfits….a welcome respite from crop tanks and frayed denim shorts? Again, Selleb Sisters here reminding you that secondhand shopping need not be about scrolling endlessly on apps — we’ve done all the curating for you :)

In this week's drop, we are making a segue into fall - still some summery pieces but get excited for longer sleeves and hemlines….We also have 2 new Sellebs on this drop, one of whom Chloe met on her last trip to LA. His father also happens to be a professor at Stanford… what a small world <3 <3

Finally, a reminder that you can still buy items from your fav public figures in the “BUY NOW” Section HERE.

DROP SCHEDULE THIS WEEK: Friday 8/12 @3PM ET

LINEUP:

@mitchell: NEW SELLEB ALERT!! The comedian himself. Check out his casual wear this round. We got a few signature items from his videos coming your way but you gotta wait a bit for that.

@tashafranken : NEW SELLEB ALERT!! She’s a Pilates guru whom so many friends of ours follow and swear by! Check out her closet this Friday.

Chloe & Claire xx

 

Drop #16 

Guysss ——

What an amazing weekend for the Selleb team!! One for the books, to be sure… We got to see so many new (and old) members of the Selleb fam and what a treat it was to hang with you all on a sun-kissed July afternoon - over style, snacks, and spritzers in one of the most splashy stores in all of NYC!! Felt so blessed. A HUGE shoutout to Edie Parker for the warm welcome into your gorgeous space and thank you so much to all of you for stopping by to learn about Selleb and support our business. Hope you will check out our drops every Friday :)

So this week, we are testing out a drop without the auction functionality, which means every item will be available for immediate purchase at a fixed price. Some of you wrote to us asking if you could buy outright; we will test this option for Drop #15 on Friday :)

Hey Selleb Fam --

What an emotional weekend. Being in NYC, we definitely felt it: the buzz of solidarity and even momentary solace seeing everyone come together on the streets.

The show went on at Selleb HQ on Friday despite the heavy heart. Happy to report that the auction for our Deca-Drop, our first-ever celebrity novelty drop, went extremely well. There seems to be a lot of Rubik’s Cube aficionados out there :)

Drop #10: DECA-DROP

Hi Selleb Fam —

Can’t believe this is our 10th DROP!! It’s also the first day for our NYC summer interns :)

Ok, so being numerology enthusiasts that we are, we are trying something special for our Deca-Drop. This week, we are dedicating the entire auction to a special new Selleb:

Timothy Huynh aka SoupTimmy

Who is Timmy? He is a Rubik’s Cube artist hailing from Tampa, Florida. We all have a friend (or a brother - guilty as charged) who is obsessed with solving cubes as fast as possible. Well, for Timmy, it’s more than speed (although he holds a Guinness Book of World Records for that too). It’s also about creating art with multiple cubes of all configurations. On Friday, we are auctioning off some of his T-shirts and novelty items. This will include his old cubes and 2 custom commissions (winners will be in contact with Timmy and get to choose a design of choice!). Check here for examples of his artwork using Rubik’s Cubes.

DROP SCHEDULE THIS WEEK:

Friday 6/24 @ 3pm ET - Sunday 6/26 @ 3pm ET (2-DAY AUCTION)

See you on Friday!

Happy 10th,

Chloe & Claire xx

DROP #1:

SELLEB LAUNCH: THURSDAY, DECEMBER 9 @12PM EST

Hi friends!! You are receiving this email because not too long ago, you became one of the O.G. members of the Selleb family by signing up for our beta launch :) We are beyond thrilled to let you know that after months of love, sweat, and tears poured into our startup (a huge shoutout to our amazing, tireless intern, Georgia), we will be ready to roll out our platform in T-1 week! Mark your calendars and get ready to bid on Selleb’s FIRST EVER fashion drop as we welcome these 5 influencer rock stars and tastemakers:

As many of you already know, Selleb is a resale platform where you can shop the closets of your favorite celebs. What you may not know is how it all began…

It was always secondhand fashion that spoke to Chloe and Claire, your founders and sisters of Selleb. It became their preferred and sometimes the only option when looking to zhuzh up their well-worn closets. It was more affordable for sure, and vintage, by definition, always felt one-off, rare, and therefore infinitely cool, not to mention sustainable. In search of these pre-loved gems, the diamonds in the rough, they spent countless hours scouring bricks-and-mortar and online sites. Along the way, they were dazzled when chancing upon items posted online by Aimee Song, Chiara Ferragni, and Wendy’s Lookbook. Sure, you could mimic the celebs’ wardrobe pairings and sartorial techniques, thereby “stealing” their style — but the act of owning that EXACT piece? Unmatched exhilaration and mystique. So when your sister founders triumphantly snagged Kendall Jenner’s Alexander McQueen sweatshirt at a one-time internet sale in 2015, they wished that there was a single platform where they could easily, frequently score outfits of ALL their favorite celebs…plucked DIRECTLY from their closets. They wanted to harness and replicate the emotional experience of owning the REAL deal over and over again. Hence, the Selleb seeds were sown…

Fast forward 6 years, and here we are, celebrating the fruition of Selleb and a dream realized! Welcome to a shopping platform where each piece you buy has a unique story to tell, where scarcity is prized over abundance; history celebrated over tabula rasa.

That’s a little background about us and our personal fashion philosophy :)  But without further ado, let’s talk about the launch day coming up. Here are some Dos and Don’ts:

  1. Don’t be fashionably late! The inaugural collection will open promptly for bidding on December 9 at 12PM EST. You will have the opportunity to bid on items for 3 days -- the auction closes on December 11 at 12PM EST. 

  2. Register to snag! When the site opens, create an account with us (with the same email address you used to sign up for our waitlist). You will only be able to bid once you have created an account.

  3. You snooze, you lose! You will receive an email every time someone outbids you, so you have the chance to submit another bid.

  4. You got mail!  All winners will be notified by email and have 12 hours to check out! (If you miss the 12-hour mark, the shopper who submitted the next highest bid will be able to purchase the item). 

Do email us at info@selleb.shop with any questions or problems you may encounter on the bidding day - hopefully it will be a smooth ride for you :) We can’t wait for you to take a peek at the closets of our first round of Sellebrities. Let the stargazing ventures begin!

Fashionably yours, 
Chloe & Claire xx
