reduce, reuse, recycle: {b*tch & switch}

this weekend, a bunch of us girls are going to get together for one of our "bitch & switch" parties.  here's how it works:

1.  clean out closet
2.  bag up clothes {cream of the crop only}
3.  assemble at someone's house {potluck, bring a snack!}
4.  swap clothes!
5.  go home with some "new" clothes & the rest {not swapped} goes to goodwill {or take it & sell it at crossroads}

it's a fun way to reduce your closet, weed out some great stuff that you just never wear & invigorate it with some "new" pieces from your fashionable friends.  {you know you've been coveting your best friends sweater, maybe she's sick of it!}  we've had several & i have some great finds from the parties.  it's also a fun reason to get together--we usually do a simple snack potluck.  we need energy for shopping!  we only bring the "cream of the crop" to swap {no one really wants your old pajamas}, and someone volunteers to take the "leftovers" to goodwill, or one can always bring home & sell it at a crossroads or someplace similar.

Hi Christina! Thanks for stopping by today and for your comment...are you anything like me and still lusting after wedding blogs even though your own wedding has passed? I find I'm living vicariously through other brides to be now :)

Wish I were in the SoCal area so I could join your swap---my wardrobe is in desperate need of refreshment and I could use a bitch session myself! Snag something extra good for me, k?

xoxo!
