No matter how you felt about her final rose ceremony (#TeamPeter forever), you have to admit that Rachel Lindsay survived her stint as The Bachelorette with admirable grace and compassion, despite having to deal with some of the darkest moments in franchise history.
And if her pitch-perfect response to a racist contestant and playful Twitter presence weren’t enough to make her your favorite Bachelorette ever, this might be: Lindsay is selling off a bunch of her clothes from her time on Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor on ThredUp, and 100 percent of the sales (not proceeds — yes, there’s a difference, and most celebrity closet cleanouts go the nebulous latter route) will go straight to the ACLU. Even better: ThredUp will match every dollar.
Hosting Lindsay’s wardrobe sale is a smart move for the online consignment store, considering how many fans follow Bachelor Nation fashion. Lindsay’s sale marks the first in the company’s “Shop Her Closet” series, which will partner with celebrities to sell their clothes for a great cause. It’s just one more new innovation for ThredUp, which recently expanded into brick-and-mortar stores and luxury consignment.
Fans of both Lindsay and the Bachelor franchise should recognize most of the pieces up for grabs, which range from $14.99 to $399.99; most are under $100, which is not a bad price for a piece of television history.
From Lindsay’s white bodysuit she wore during her one-on-one date with Nick in New Orleans to her fantasy suite penguin-printed onesie, below are a few of our favorites from the sale.
“I do think this season of The Bachelorette took a step forward, but it also highlighted that there are still close-minded people in the world,” Lindsay said in a press release. “I’m thrilled that the clothing I’m selling on [ThredUp] will support the ACLU, an organization close to my heart that fights against hate and ignorance.”
