“A lot of my friends will call me and say, ‘Can I come over to Kyle’s closet to borrow some stuff?'” says Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards. Well now, they can — for a price.
Richards is the first celebrity seller on HipSwap.com, a new site that’s billed as an eBay-meets-Gilt and full of fashion and home goods. Sellers upload photos and videos of their items, name a price and take 96.5 percent of the profit. Available now in Los Angeles, Seattle, Dallas, New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Austin, Washington, D.C., Phoenix, Miami and Atlanta, the site also offers home delivery in the Los Angeles area (with plans to expand soon).
Richards’s offerings for the site include an Aiden Maddox gown she wore on season two of Housewives ($260) and a faux fur INC jacket ($75). Proceeds from the sale of her 13 items (six of which are still available) will benefit breast cancer research. If you miss out, not to worry — more celebrity sales are planned in the months ahead.
