Thrifted

Clothes-swappin’

Bee and I had so much fun yesterday! We were invited to a clothing swap held by fantastic and thrifty Elizabeth of La Vida Desconocida.  We showed up with 6-7 bags of clothes between us, having leaned on Elizabeth to host after our recent wardrobe purges.

We organized loosely by item type: dress, skirt, pants, jacket, sweater, shirt, shoes, accessories, housewares. Then, a very polite free-for-all ensued. Many a “if you don’t want it, I’d like to try it on” and “oh! this might look better on you!” were heard.

Here’s the official Crab and Bee haul. It must be noted that there were three sister swaps, a tank and jeans that went from me to the Bee, and then a shirt that went from her to me. I laid future claim on some items that I’m hoping she gets tired of, and vice versa.

Our combined haul!

If you haven’t already, I highly suggest starting up a clothing exchange with some fun ladies! It’s an extremely pleasant way to spend a morning and a good excuse to down some mimosas.

  1. I second all of that! Clothes swaps are a great way to purge your closet (all items not taken are donated) and get some new pieces for free. Also, there's no shame in drinking a bottle of champagne while you do it… which is actually how much I had yesterday. With juice, so it's legit. Thanks for helping make the swap great, ladies!

  2. That was a truly glorious swap!!! Along with various sister exchanges, (and obviously staying firmly within the color guidelines of my closet) I found some really great shoes and a useful blazer! Currently, I am happily ensconced in some sister-pants. I can't wait for the next swap!
