Clothing swaps: a different kind of shopping

Shopping with girlfriends. Sounds fun, right?

Well, of course! Especially when you're shopping with girlfriends who know your style and whose opinions you trust.  That's key.  No fake oh yeah, that looks great! and then you get home and wonder what the heck you were thinking. For me, that was always the challenge of going shopping with girlfriends when I was younger.  No one wanted to hurt anyone else's feelings, so we didn't really tell the truth.

I can't actually remember the last time I went shopping with girlfriends like that. But I'll tell you I've discovered something even more fun - a clothing swap with friends. And it's so much easier on the purse strings, too!

A few weekends ago, some girlfriends and I met at First Wife Studios to enjoy an afternoon of catching up and trying on each others' clothes. With wine, of course. Each of us brought along some gently used (or sometimes not used at all) items to swap and hangers. Sabrina provided the racks, we set up shop and by the end of the afternoon, we all walked away with something new-to-us. I picked up this fun little black dress (among other things).

We had so much fun and so much to swap, that we decided to share these pre-loved goodies with you lucky Hong Kong peeps. We're busy planning for our pop up event this Friday and I think you Hong Kong ladies will enjoy it. Hosts of this event are Jasmine of Dress Me Blog Me, Sabrina of First Wife Studios, Vanessa of VSLawson, Maria of What the Frock, Jamie of Polkadot Boutique, Jennifer of Glam-it by Jennglamco, and me. Come check us out!

Host your own clothing swap:
  Not in Hong Kong? Don't worry! You can host a clothing swap with friends yourself. It's easy! Just choose a date, invite between 7-10 girlfriends over and ask everyone to bring around ten items to swap. Items can include hardly worn, gently used, or even unwanted gifts.  It can be clothing, jewellery, accessories, beauty products, etc. You decide! Get some clothing racks (IKEA stocks them), ask girlfriends to bring clothing on hangers.  Arrange by clothing type (tops, bottoms, dresses, shoes), set out a mirror and you're good! Snacks, beverages and music are a nice touch, too.  That way you feel like you're in a cute little boutique.

Have fun!

I really love everything about this outfit! From the hat to an lbd to the peek-a-boo of skin to the booties. It all equates to perfection!! Plus, the wall! Norbyah, I love when we get together and shoot pics because you're showing me so many more great nooks and crannies to our neighborhood. I love Stanley!

Also, congratulations on making this post to not only IFB but to their highlight--total SCORE!!
