Swapping Parties: Get Drunk And Trade Clothes ... What Could Be Better?
October 27, 2008
They’re the hottest thing to hit
A swapping party is where a group of about 15 to 20 women gather to swap clothes. They bring three items, all recently dry cleaned and in good condition plus a bottle of wine… and leave with five items that are different than what they brought. Sounds like fun, right?
I recently scored an Ann Taylor cashmere cardi, a French Connection pencil skirt, and an obi leather belt (all similar to the ones above). I traded away a Nine West cropped cardigan, Ralph Lauren sweater dress, and pair of Kenneth Cole wedge boots. Nothing is super trendy, but none of it is way out of style either… and I now have three new faves in my closet!
