Hi! We’re Kelly and Laura – the co-founders of dresst™. We’re so excited you found your way to the closet.
dresst™ was born out of passion and necessity. Having both worked in the corporate world for 10+ years, we found ourselves trying to keep up with the style Joneses. We won’t tell you exact numbers, but between the two of us, we owned north of 400 items. A shocking amount of clothing. And yet we were still spending upwards of $4,000 per year to add more clothes. And all we ended up with was a closet full of clothes, and still the constant problem of “having nothing to wear.” Turns out, most Canadians in our demographic are just like us.
If this wasn’t alarming enough, each year the average person throws away 81lbs of clothes and the fashion industry contributes 26 billion lbs to landfill waste. We knew there had to be a better way to preserve our pocketbooks, help be better towards the environment, but also stay on trend and feel good in the clothes we were wearing.
Enter: dresst™. An online closet where you can shop to your heart’s content, without the waste and without the high-end wardrobe price tag. With a quick monthly shop, you can refresh your look, reduce your environmental footprint all at a reasonable, affordable price. That $4,000 per year on clothes used to get us maybe 20 new pieces to add to our wardrobe. Now it allows us to wear 120 new pieces across more than 3 years.
So, it’s like we said: passion and necessity. We believe that feeling and looking good doesn’t have to mean feeling guilty at the same time. Our hope is that you love the closet as much as we do. Happy shopping, ladies!
