Clothing Swap

"A clothing swap is a type of swapmeet wherein participants exchange their valued but no longer used clothing for clothing they will use. Clothing swaps are considered not only a good way to declutter and refill one's wardrobe, but also are considered an act of environmentalism." -Wikipedia

On Friday my girlfriend and I hosted one of these at her home. It was a huge success! Everyone who came went away with many great pieces. It was a fun night with the girls...I totally recommend it.

 Here is what you do: 1-Send out invites telling the ladies to bring a bag of clothes they want to 'swap' and a bottle of wine. 2-Have food and tables to set the clothes out on. 3-When the ladies arrive tell them where to lay out their clothes and then come back to mingle, eat and drink. 4-Once everyone has their clothes on the tables say go and everyone can run in to look and take the clothes. Ours wasn't quite as aggresive as I was hoping but it was still a good time. 5-Once everyone finds what they want it is fun to  show off what you ended up with.

Thanks to all the ladies who came! xoxo
