Clothes Swapping Party

I am very excited to tell you about the Clothes Swapping Party I hosted last Saturday. I ended up with a few lovely new items and shared some laughs and prosecco with great friends.

Hosting such a party is easy to do and inexpensive. Here is a list of reasons why having a Clothes Swapping event is such a fantastic idea:

 

1) You get new clothes for free

We’ve all done it, bought that skirt or that dress that looked amazing on the mannequin but not so amazing on us. It’s natural, we all have different body shapes, while mannequins - is safe to say – all look exactly the same. Knowing and loving your body shape will stop you from making future purchasing mistakes, but in the meantime, you can give those unsuitable (yet absolutely gorgeous!) items to some of your lovely friends who can wear them better.

 

 

2) You get rid of clothes you no longer wear, need, like etc.

I highly advise you to host a clothes swapping event particularly after you’ve had a wardrobe assessment / overhaul. So instead of fretting over when to take all those bags of clothes to the charity shop (I for one struggle, as I don’t have a car and the only charity shop situated at walking distance from my house is currently closed), just have some friends over and give them away. You’ll be left with a lot less bags of clothes to cull.

 

 

3) It’s a great occasion to bring friends together

We all do it, promise to get together an life gets in the way. So sometimes it’s best to add an extra incentive for bringing friends together and hanging out. We’ve spent the first hour or so catching up on the latest, nibbling and eating prosecco and them started rummaging through each other’s clothes. It was the best fun we’ve had in ages!

 

4) Because we like clothes!

I know it’s silly, but we’re girls and we like clothes. Scattered all over the living room, bags, shoes, hats, jewellery, anything you can think of. I managed to even fall back in love with some of my own clothes, which I guess it’s a good thing.

 

 

5) Because your clothes go to people you love :)

As much as I like clothes, I hate waste. So if I find myself in the situation of having too many similar items, as much as I love them, I’ll try to limit myself to the minimum and to give away the excess. It makes me happy knowing that clothes I really liked (like the black Diesel boots below!) go to someone I also really care about. It just makes me smile.
