Last night I hosted a Ladies Clothing Exchange and lemme tell ya, it was a good time! Have you ever been to one? Some gals call their parties "Naked Lady" parties... where you bring all the clothing, accessories and shoes you don't wear anymore, and switch with other gals at the party. It's fun to see what people are willing to give up, just because they're bored with it, it doesn't fit right or they just decide it's not likeable any longer. The win in this situation is that you're gaining adorable, stylish duds without the cost of thrift store prices. And... you get to party! Definite win.
The result last night was lots of fun gals with a ton of fun clothing. Some of the ladies left with garbage bags full of new-to-them clothing... which I consider a win. I myself found a few items I'm excited to wear (included the coolest sweatshirt I've yet to lay eyes on).
If I had to do things differently, I would have served alcohol. I'm not gonna lie... it's more fun to "shop" when I'm loosened up with a little red wine. I had the party in a location different than my home, which prevented me from bringing alcohol... but next time, I think it needs to happen.
All in all, a Ladies Clothing Exchange is probably one of the easiest, most fun parties I've yet to throw. I see another one happening within the next six months... so don't throw those clothes out just yet... save em' for a party!!
