You+She is an online market dedicated to buying, selling, discussion, and discovery of female-founded, romantic brands. We love all things of beauty and we care about the quality, sustainability and ethics of the brands. Over the years, we have been collecting the brands that are beautiful both inside and out. We highly recommend them to you and are providing our support via this secondhand market.
Kait and Yuxi (you-she) met on Instagram and bonded over our shared love of fashion. We have talked about clothing for years and discovered how transformative thoughtfully-crafted pieces have been in our lives. As mothers of young kids we’ve found fashion helpful in our personal journeys. From wearing a soft nightgown while up in the middle of the night with babies to feeling like the Belle of the ball at an event in a romantic gown. Our clothing is an important part of our lifestyle.
After selling our clothing in numerous ways online we decided to create a space dedicated to reselling beautiful brands to the stylish community that we love to be a part of. We hope to create a positive space where people can collect heirloom pieces, chat about clothing, and create friendships. We would love to share our passion by sharing reviews of our heirloom pieces and newly discovered jewels as post or story.
Buying is simple at You+She! We require sellers to price based on the condition determined according to our standards and also disclose known flaws. All transactions are protected by Paypal and sellers pay the fee. Have fun shopping!
