In high school your friends had clothes that you would borrow, then you had things that they would borrow from you. As we got older the thought of wearing our friends things was not as appealing. Fast forward to 2010, we have a bad economy, money is tight, and all over you are hearing about swap parties where friends gather at one’s home bringing things that they no longer wear, or can fit…..(I will leave that alone) and offer them up to another friend at the “swap” for free. I think it’s a great idea and am planning a swap of my own with my friends. If worried that someone will notice that you are wearing your friends dress they probably won’t, but to be on the safe side you can shorten it……dye it (using RIT), add a belt, scarf, jacket and you have a new addition to your wardrobe for free!
P is for parties , Christi Bennett has great pictures of her swap party that looked liked a lot of fun, and gave loads of inspiration. Check out her blog to see all of the pictures. I will be planning my own swap event, lol! If in Atlanta area and you would like to participate contact me.
