Fashion Swapping - 2 Easy Ways to Get FREE Fashion Items

Can you still be the fabulous fashionista that you are even in this tough economy?

Of course you can! You simply need to know how to keep your fashion sense alert without your pockets going for broke. One craze that is sweeping the nation with fashion forward women is something called "swapping".

Now, if you've never heard this term "swapping" before no need to fret, I myself am among the few who are still new to this concept. "Swapping" is just as it sounds, you basically exchange items between fellow "swappers".

Items that can commonly be "swapped" include jewelry, handbags, shoes, clothes, belts, scarves, hats...well you get the idea. Pretty much anything that is in good condition that you would be proud to let someone borrow can be "swapped".

Sound too good to be true? Well believe me ladies it's 100% the absolute truth! So how exactly does this work? I'm glad you asked :) There are 2 ways this can work:

1. Host your own fashion swap with close friends and/or family
- Great way to get the girls together
- Exchange items on a smaller scale
- Fun and practical
- Limited to the items from people you know only
- Free
- No minimum number if items to bring

2. Attend a fashion swap event
- Great way to get the girls together
- Exchange items on a much larger scale
- Tons of fun
- Easy, no planning involved on your part
- Swap with lots of people (giving you more swapping options)
- Inexpensive entry fee ($5-$30)
- Minimum number of items required from you to attend (1-5)

Whichever way you choose to participate in a fashion swap keep in mind that you will be updating your wardrobe and helping others update theirs. In addition, most fashion swap events donate left over items and part of their proceeds to local charities.

Let's all do our part ladies:

  • Swap instead of Shop
  • Be Green (recycling your clothes is eco-friendly)
  • Support Your Local Charities
  • Have a Girl's Night Out

And now I'd like to invite you to learn more about Fashion Swapping including where the next event will be taking place. Please go to
