My First Clothing Swap!

I participated in my first clothing swap this past weekend. I admit when I was first invited, I thought, “Clothing swap? What the heck is that?” The idea of meeting random people and taking their clothes seemed foreign to me. But guess what? Clothing swaps are awesome and I have been missing out!

If you haven’t been to one, I highly encourage you to invite some friends over, open a bottle of wine (or two…) and ask them to bring their unwanted clothing and accessories. I left with 13 “new” pieces of clothing, plus a few bottles of OPI nail polish. Score! I was so excited because these clothes were all new to me and I didn’t spend a dime on them. I threw them in the wash immediately upon arriving home and have already worn a piece or two.

My absolute favorite item I left with was this dress.

I am thinking about hosting my own clothing swap in a few months. Friends, wine, FREE clothes. It’s a win-win-win!

Have you ever been to a swap? If so, what kind?


  1. Oh my gosh, I have never heard of those- genius! Love the dress!
