Saturday Kayleia and I had a lot of fun attending our towns annual frock swap. The week before the swap you bring in cloths you no longer wear and trade them for points. You then buy a $10 ticket for the swap (proceeds go to a local women's shelter) where you can exchange your points for "new to you" clothing.
I traded in:
I went home with:
|1: Bridesmaid Dress 2: Express Pants 3: Gap Jacket, 4: Anthropologie Shirt 5: Target Sweater, |
6: Abercormbie Jeans
|1: Vintage Dress 2: Boden T-shirt 3: Gift Bag 4: ? Shoes 5: ? Belt 6: Nine West Shoes|
7: Banana Republic Shirt
I also participated last year where I got this skirt. It's proven to be a low cost way to add different things to my closet - such as a pink shirt or snake skin flats, which are unusual picks for me. The red dress was an amazing find, vintage 100% silk. Once it's hemmed it's going to be a ton of fun to wear. On top of all that it is an easy way to support my community.
