My First (Of Many) Clothes Swap




Well- what a blast we had last night!!I hosted my first ever Clothing Swap and invited ladies that had mentioned to me that they were interested in attending one. I also invited my friend Krista Jefferson to talk to us about her Just One fairly-traded jewelry business.  


I can't say enough how fun it was. We munched on veggies and chips, chatted, drank some wine and shopped for FREE clothes! That is pretty much my idea of a perfect night.


In case you have never heard of a Clothing Swap- it is exactly what it sounds like. You get to clear out your closet of all the items that you no longer wear and swap them for 'new-to-you' items that you will wear. It's the old "One (wo)man's junk is another (wo)man's treasure" concept...



Here are some photos of the fun:

I wish that this sequin dress had gone home with someone. It was so cute.

I highly recommend a Clothing Swap to all my readers! It was a great night to connect with friends, to meet some new ones, and also to give our closets a facelift. Win-win-win.
