Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay Selling Her Clothes for ACLU on thredUP [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
Recently engaged Bachelorette star Rachel Lindsay is selling her clothes for a cause. The Texan lawyer is selling pieces she wore during her appearance on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor on thredUP, a secondhand clothing retailer, and donating all of the proceeds to the ACLU, an organization "that's important to me now more than ever," Lindsay wrote on Instagram. Each of the ensembles for sale, including a penguin-printed onesie and a white jumpsuit, includes an anecdote from Lindsay about when she wore it on the show.
Got cute clothes that remind you of an ex? I do. Today I’m selling clothes I wore on Nick’s season (hello closure and new chapter!) on @thredUP, my favorite fashion resale website. Go to thredUP.com/rachel (link in bio) to shop my penguin onesie, white coat from his hometown visit and tons of other goodies from my closet. All proceeds benefit the ACLU, an organization that’s important to me now more than ever. #secondhandfirst #aclu #charity #foragoodcause
