New clothes, guilt free


I just acquired a whole new wardrobe. Three jackets, five shirts and four pairs of pants. All free. All preloved.

Last week, I hosted a clothing swap. Six women attended, each with a stack of hand-me-downs. We drank wine, ate cheese, grapes and pie, and tried on each other’s clothes. It was the greatest thing. Everyone had items they were either sick of or that never quite fit. What made it work so well was that each woman was a slightly different size and body type, so there wasn’t any silliness over who got which item. Disaster pants on one woman worked perfectly on another.

It was such a great way to refresh our wardrobes without going shopping. Another swap has been planned for February…. though, I may push for December… or maybe next week…
