Sharing my wardrobe with others who live my items as much as I do!

Why do you love By Rotation?
Gives me an opportunity to share items that I rarely have a chance to wear. I hate the thought of having lovely clothes just sitting in my wardrobe not being worn much! Plus it's a great way to make a bit of extra money. By Rotation makes renting easy - the platform is really straightforward to use.

Your most rented item: The Vampire's Wife red velvet dress. I’ve now bought an additional size in the dress, as it is so popular. It’s also one of my favourites.
How much is the item's RRP: £1200
How much ££ have you made from the piece: £1200 + a little extra
Any memorable moments with the piece: It’s been worn for all sorts, from weddings to birthdays and it's very popular at Christmas due to its stunning red velvet!

Why do you love By Rotation?
By Rotation is an amazing way to earn side income. I've now stopped spending any of my salary on buying new clothes, the only money I use to buy anything new is what I earn from By Rotation. It's also changed the way that I invest in pieces, I have stopped buying fast fashion and now only buy quality pieces that I know can be rented out and pay themselves back over time.  Also, the By Rotation community is the sweetest, I receive such lovely notes and messages from women on the platform.

Your most rented item: Leslie Amon orange dress!
How much is the item's RRP: £380
How much ££ have you made from the piece: £650 & counting! Renting out my Leslie Amon dress has not only paid itself back, but has also made me nearly £300 in less than a year. If last year I was to invest that £300 into most shares on the stock market, there’s no way I would have received that level of return on investment!
Any memorable moments with the piece: This summer in Ibiza dancing to the early hours with my closest girlfriends.

Why do you love By Rotation?
When I started using By Rotation, I was in a long term relationship with my boyfriend, between LA and London. It was quite hard for me to bring large amounts of clothes every time I flew over to London, but I’m that kind of girl who always loves wearing an extra outfit wherever I go! That’s how I came across By Rotation and started rotating on the app - the community aspect is incredible, I can just pick up new outfits from women in my area within 24 hours! I’ve made a few new friends too, I love @charliemay - she’s my angel!

Your most rented item: My For Love & Lemons lace gown
How much is the item's RRP: £328
How much ££ have you made from the piece: £435.3, more than the dress RRP price!
Any memorable moments with the piece: I wore this for the first time at my friend’s wedding when I came to England for the first time!

Why do you love By Rotation?
I love the personal feel and sense of community with By Rotation - it really feels like rotators care about your items and treat them like their own.

Your most rented item: Daily Sleeper feather black party pyjamas!
How much is the item's RRP: £260.00
How much ££ have you made from the piece: I've rented it out 28x times and have made around £600!
Any memorable moments with the piece: I confess to owning two pairs. I was in the process of switching to a pair with press-studs and got a plea from someone going to Paris to help her out for the occasion. She had her heart set on the Sleeper set for a birthday meal, luckily I could rescue her wardrobe dilemma and make her weekend.
