Ladies Clothing Swap

We did it again! 

I can't even tell you how much fun a Ladies Clothing Swap can be. It's a big dress-up party for all your favorite friends, and everyone goes home with some "new," FREE stuff!

Everyone was encouraged to bring tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes, bags, jewelry and even intimates.

A clothing swap is the most budget-friendly and ECO-friendly way to update your wardrobe. Reduce and reuse!

You know the drill! Go through your closets and purge! Bring over tops, bottoms, coats, scarves, jewelry, accessories, purses, shoes, and anything else (lingerie, I dare someone?). If it hasn’t been touched in a year, it’s time to offer it to someone else.

We’ll try to make it fair. You get to leave with a few nice things if you brought a few nice things. If we have your size. And taste. Uhh, just keep your expectations low and let’s stay friends.

There might be margaritas involved.

We’ll have a room to try things on, mirrors, and friends full of advice.

Whatever is left will be donated to the Strong Foundation, a homeless shelter for families in downtown San Antonio.

We played Loaded Questions again to be certain everyone had a chance to be embarrassed.

I asked my friends how it was going through their closets and purging the things that don't fit or they just don't wear any more. Everyone had a different experience!

It's a personal thing, and sometimes difficult, to let go of your clothes and offer them to other people. Clothing often has sentimental value because of where or whom it came from, or where it's been with you!

We also hesitate because many of us hoped to be a different size at this point in life and we're just not! This group is all moms, and our bodies and lifestyles have changed. It's something we have to accept over and over again! It affects our schedules, careers, and even wardrobes.

My sweet, beautiful friends.

A clothing swap makes a seriously fun party. Give your friends about a 2 week notice to prepare. Send inspiration, like from Jennifer L. Scott and her 10-item wardrobe, or my review of my own capsule wardrobe

Best of the best!
