The withering stares and judge-y commentary of certain consignment-shop clerks are notorious, so it’s no surprise that some women choose to unload their clothes elsewhere—like new members-only cyber­market Bib & Tuck (bibandtuck.com). Founded by childhood friends Sari Azout and Sari Bibliowicz, pictured, the site lets users trade in their never-worn and gently used clothing and accessories for “bucks,” or credit toward other users’ castoffs. It’s simple: Just upload photos of the items you’re ready to relinquish, set a price, and when other shoppers have “bought” your goods, use your accumulated bucks to shop for theirs. Because Bib & Tuck is populated by more than 1,000 handpicked stylists, fashion bloggers, and designers, every visit feels like raiding the closet of your chicest friend: Recent offerings included an oversize Alexander Wang camel-hair coat (100 bucks), a sequined Phillip Lim dress (220 bucks), and suede cap-toe Manolo Blahniks (250 bucks). Membership is by invitation only, but the first 50 readers to sign up with the code NYMAG get full access.
