(WXYZ) - We all have those items in our closet that we just don't wear anymore.
Now, a new app is letting us swap those once-loved items with friends and other fashionistas.
99dresses is like a virtual closet swap, letting you trade items with other people across the country.
The app, that officially launched Monday, allows users to post their fashion items they would like to trade. Based on the value and quality of the item, the poster then receives buttons.
Think of the buttons as a form of online swapping currency. That user can then use their buttons to request fashion that other women are giving away.
Now, the items are free, but you do have to pay for shipping and a small swap fee that is 5 percent of the item's original purchase price.
Each time a piece is posted, it remains live for 24 hours. When the timer ends, the item is awarded to the person with the highest karma rating. If the piece isn't claimed, it will simply roll over for an additional 24 hours.
A karma rating is determined by receiving positive feedback on what you give away. A spokeswoman from the PR firm that represents 99dresses says that the karma system helps build responsibility in the swapping community.
The app is available on iOS devices.
