{May 2, 2009}   Clothing Swap Party

          Last night’s clothing swap party was a huge success!!  I spent a wonderful evening with friends and the night was super cheap (I brought a bottle of $7 wine).  Basically a clothing swap party is when a bunch of ladies bring all of the clothing that no longer fits them or they no longer want and they trade.  It is a simple concept that keeps clothing out of landfills, out of your closets, and you get a bunch of clothing for nothing!!!!  Although we invited over 15 ladies, only 4 of us showed up, which in hind sight was a perfect number.  However another girl did donate clothing to our party but was unable to show, we but clothing aside for her. We actually range in sizes from size 5ish – 13is yet it was still a huge success! 

          Here is the bounty that I received from the swap ~

  1. Pair of knee high chocolate brown boots
  2. Brown purse
  3. 35 bangle bracelets
  4. Shell Belt
  5. Jean Jacket
  6. Black pants
  7. Red printed tee shirt
  8. Shorts
  9. Jean skirt
  10. Pink and Black Dress
  11. Pink Hippie Poncho (WOO WHOO)
  12. Green Hippie Poncho (WOO WHOO)
  13. Long Black Dress (I think this is my favorite thing)
  14. Brown Hippie Shirt
  15. White Hippie Shirt
  16. White Skirt
  17. Chocolate Brown Pencil Skirt
  18. Black Light Sweater
  19. Blue Tee Shirt
  20. Sky Blue Tee Shirt (Most comfortable tee shirt I have ever put on)

The only thing I wanted that I didn’t get was a brown honey colored sweater, but it is promised to me next swap!  I would recommend this to anyone and everyone!  It is a night of fun and everyone takes home something!  Remember, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure.

Glad you had so much fun! I am changing my annual party to a two-times-a-year fiesta because I love it so much.
