FASHION - Swap, don't shop

I am a big fan of clothes swaps and we've organised lots of successful clothes swaps at our studio over the last two years. Swaps are the BEST way to refresh your wardrobe without spending a penny.

My favourite type of swap is a spur of the moment swap. A couple of weeks ago my friend Jackie who was in need of a clear out and on the look out for a new outfit to sport for her upcoming Paris trip sent a message round on Facebook to myself and 7 or so other friends seeing who was up for it. Two days later, our spontaneous swap was in full swing.

We drank red wine, we had a catch up and we bagged ourselves some new threads. It's the ideal night if you ask me. Clothes swaps for me are more about off loading garments as I struggle to find things to fit me (everything is generally always too short) however I came up trumps this time around and left with a polka dot dress, a slouchy jumper, a soft green cardi and a black pashmina scarf.

I love that my outfit today is a 'swapped' one (minus the shoes and tights). Have you organised a clothes swap before? If not, I urge you to do it now. It's so much fun!
