Sheila of Style Agent 909 issued the invitation to her Clothing Swap Party earlier this month. It’s a great idea, especially for those of us who don’t get to go to real-time swap parties. I’m excited to see who attends and what they bring to the swap table. You don’t have to attend Sheila’s party or be a blogger to trade items (individuals work out the mailing details between them), but she suggests giving swap party attendees first dibs.
Before Sheila announced her party, I’d already taken a load of clothes to the consignment store, but I’m still losing weight and trying to edit my single closet into a less confusing and more cohesive selection. Anything offered in this swap is likely never worn or worn only once, and it either didn’t suit me or is not my size anymore.
What would I be interested in swapping for? Bracelets/bangles for small wrists, old costume jewelry, simple dresses or tops with lots of mix and max potential (size S or 4/6/8), a pleated skirt, unopened tights (S/M), a petticoat (crazy wish, huh?), wide or obi belts (S/M), square scarves (fascinated by them but can’t find one to thrift), or surprise me.
Here’s what I’ve got right now (but I plan to copy this post to a Swap Stuff blog tab above to add additional clothes and keep the swap opportunities going, thanks for a great idea, Sheila!)
