Hosting a clothes swap | Lifestyle

If you’re looking for an excuse to have a girly night in, hosting a clothes swap could be the perfect thing for you. You could end up getting rid of a load of things you don’t want, and getting a load of amazing new things to boot. I went along to one organised by Rock on Ruby a few months back (Post here) and met so many lovely new blogger friends and some amazing new pieces of clothing, so I would defiantly recommend a blogger one. If you need an excuse to host a clothes shop, take a look through this post:

You Get Lots of New Clothes
Clothes that are old news to your friends will be brand spanking new and exciting to you. You should end up with lots of lovely new clothes, and you won’t need to spend anything at all.

You Make Space
As you’re clearing out your wardrobe to swap, you’ll make space. You might not make as much space as intended if you bring back bundles of your friends old clothes, but you can forgive that if you love everything you come home with.

You Get Rid of Clothes You Don’t Want
I can never be bothered to sell my clothes on sites like eBay, but they do my head in when they’re strewn all over the place. This is the perfect opportunity to get rid of them and make sure they go to a loving new home.

It’s an Excuse for a Drink
You didn’t think I’d just suggest you got together to swap clothes, did you? It’s a great excuse to have a drink! Why not try something fancy, like Australian boutique wines? You could even serve nibbles to go with the wine, like cheese and crackers. If you’re trying to keep the budget low, then you could always just buy vodka and crisps.  

Have a Good Catch Up
We don’t catch up enough these days. Well, I don’t know about you and your friends specifically, but I know how busy everybody is. Everybody has their own stuff going on; work, boyfriends, family, kids, and everything else. This is a great excuse to have a good catch up and find out what’s going on with one another.


A Brill Alternative to Going Out
Although having a good girl’s night out is essential every so often, this is a good alternative. Girl’s nights out can cost a lot, from the hotel rooms to the new outfits. This is the best way to spend time together, have a drink, a gossip, and get new clothes on a budget! You’ll hardly spend a penny!

No Need to Travel for Shopping
A clothes swap is like shopping. The only issue with shopping, is that you usually need to travel to go somewhere worthwhile. No need to travel very far for a clothes swap! Simply pick an appropriate house and away you go. Everything you need is right there!

You can’t need anymore excuses to hold a clothes swap, so get planning yours now! Pick a date you’re all free, put it in your calendar, and have fun swapping your clothes. If you have any other ideas, please leave a comment below.
