How to Have a More Sustainable Black Friday

Learn how to turn your Black Friday into ♻️Green Friday♻️ by saving money AND the planet today!

Did you know the biggest shopping day of the year also has a big impact on the Planet due to higher production and shipping? When Black Friday deals drop there’s no reason we should drop our love for Earth too. Turn Black Friday into Green Friday by shopping the Curtsy way. Here’s how to find great deals that make a small impact on your wallet and the Planet. 

👋 Shop second hand (*cough-cough* CURTSY)

Spend Black Friday right by saving money AND the planet when you thrift shop. What’s your favorite online thrift store and why is it Curtsy 😉? There’s no better place to #extendthetrend and shop looks you love without all the guilt. Plus, every day feels like Black Friday with daily deals on the Curtsy app.

🛍 Support small & local 

This year it’s more important than ever to shop small, because many small businesses are feeling the impact of the pandemic. Show your support by shopping locally at a boutique or online at Etsy. Small shops offer just as great of deals as the big guys.

💚 Shop eco-conscious brands

We see major red flags when a brand is afraid of commitment (to us and the Planet). This weekend shop responsibly from the below list of eco-conscious brands we admire.

Girlfriend-collective (30% off everything)
Galerie.La (Buy one get one 30% off all clothing)
Able (25% off site-wide)
Naadam (40% Off)
Wild cosmetics (25% off site-wide)
Pact (25% Off)
Parade (40% Off)
Whimsy and Row (Up to 75% off )
Tentree (up to 50% off)
Levi’s (40% off + free shipping)
Aday (up to 30% off select styles)

✔️Keep calm and shop smart 

Impulse buys are fun, but knowing you took your time to find the best deal on what you actually need can be even better. This year make a list of what you need before you start shopping so you don’t gobble up every sale you see.

👯‍♀️Shopping in person? Buddy up!

Have plans to add fresh finds to an IRL shopping cart? Invite a wingman to your in-person adventure and carpool from store to store. Plus, don’t forget to bring along your reusable tote for your new items. The Planet will thank you!

How to Save the Planet 🌎 (and some $$$) This Fall

ICYMI…It’s 🍂Fall Y’all🍂 and don’t we love it! We fall hard for PSL, Fall scents and gourd-geous fashion at Curtsy. We know you have a long list of 🍁 faves, too. And, just because we want it all for Fall, doesn’t mean we can’t still show our love for the planet 🌎. Scroll along to see how you can live your best life, but make it eco-friendly this szn. 

  1. Thrift Your 🎃 Halloween Fits 🎃 

We love showing off our creative and drop-dead gorgeous style during Halloween. But, let’s creep it real 👻, we wear the costume to a few parties and then next year we want to be something completely different. That makes costumes the perfect thing to thrift. Feeling spooked because you don’t have a costume yet? Shop our Curtsy Curated Halloween list that we’re always adding Spooky Selections to 🎃 👻💀!

  1. ♻️Reduce and Reuse♻️ at Starbies: Show the Planet Some TLC When You PSL ☕️

Fall has you going to Starbucks on the daily. No judgement here, we love Starbies a latte too! What’s even sweeter? Getting buzzed on pumpkin spice and everything nice, but make it sustainable! Cancel single-use cups by popping inside your favorite Starbucks and filling up your best reusable mug with your Fall drink of choice ☕️ (our new favorite: apple crisp macchiato). Plus, you get a tiny discount for being so thoughtful. Win-win!

  1. Get Fresh with Cozy 🍂 Fall Trends 🍂

The Fall forecast is a 100% chance of cozy. And when you snuggle up to Fall trends you give off major Hot Girl Fall vibes by literally saving the heat 🔥. Cozy up your closet with trending cardigans and sweaters on Curtsy. You’ll feel so cool and will stay warmer this szn in your hot looks.

  1. Major Closet Cleanout 🧺

Bring in fresh Fall vibes with a style refresh. Sell last year’s wardrobe on Curtsy and then get some new Fall fits. Have items you can’t sell? We love organizations like The Bra Recyclers and Project Beauty Share where you can donate your pre-loved goods and do a ton of good 💚💚💚!

  1. Tote Up on Your Trader Joe’s Haul 🛒

Ready for another Fall Trader Joe’s haul!? Don’t forget your reusable tote tho! Need a tote refresh? We got you. Stock up on reusable totes on Curtsy.

  1. 🧖‍♀️Spa Smart 🧖‍♀️

Top Trends To Fall For 🍁

It seems like just yesterday we were planning our Hot Girl Summer and picking out the wildest bucket hat to go with our sunnies 😎. Don’t worry, you’re still hot as ever, but it’s time to trade in your cropped fits for cozy looks, because Summer is officially coming to an end. 

Don’t be too sad. With Fall comes its own fresh scents, dreamy vacations and fashion goals 🍂. That’s why we’re here to give you ideas on what to list or love on Curtsy to get you ready for the season. These Fall fashion trends are soon to be at the top of countless shopping lists.

1. Oversized Leather Jackets

Leather jackets are a wardrobe staple, but for Fall the motto is definitely the bigger, the better. We can’t get enough of the many shapes and styles to fit any mood. Maybe go for the trench for a little mystery or the bomber style for a little classic-cool? You get bonus points if your jacket makes you feel like a rebel who can conquer it all, even though we know you have a heart of gold 💛. 

2. Baguette Bags

If we learned anything from pandemic life, it’s that we don’t need much to get by. Grab your essentials, pack your baguette bag, throw it over your shoulder and go. A baguette is small, but the statement it makes is huge. Especially if it’s in luxe fabrics like suede or leather and creative shapes like the half moon or ruching.

3. Red

This trend will have everyone stopping in their tracks to obsess over your style. Red doesn’t just stand for love, it’s also for the passionate and bold. The color is a statement choice on its own, and when paired with eye-catching styles can bring an edge to any fit. Red is just the beginning of the major color story for Fall that is saturated hues like siren red and emerald green.

4. Cargo Pants

Utility is the name of the game. We owe cargo pants to the Y2K trend that we’re all still coveting. Complete the look with a fitted and flirty top to balance the loose silhouette of the pants.

5. Long Sleeve Sets

We saw sets crop up in summer and we get the feeling that they are here to stay. To get set for Fall, take your pick from long sleeve sets that can handle the cooler temps. Top your look with a fitted blazer or cardigan and finish off with coordinating pants or midi skirt.

Ready to trend? 💃🏻 List your Fall items on Curtsy now.
