Last week I went to my first ever clothing exchange party! I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it was so much fun. Each person brought 5-10 items (clothing, jewelry, shoes, purses, etc). Even though people were different shapes & sizes, it seemed to work. There was something for everyone.
Some people brought clothes that were too big or too small. Some brought items that they were given as gifts & didn’t want. And others just brought clothes that they were sick of. I have a habit of buying clothes and then never wearing them, so many of my items still had the tags on them.
We then drew #’s to decide what our order would be. I picked #9, so I had to go last but I still had a chance to steal.
We then went in order picking one item each round. Every item could be stolen twice; however, at our party only 3 items were stolen, because most of the girls were too nice. Some people tried on the clothes, others just picked & hoped it would fit.
The evening was accompanied by wine & dessert. Seriously, it was so much fun! Wine, dessert, & clothes… that is my kind of evening! (Bonus: Do you spy Daryl from the Walking Dead?)
