A couple of weeks ago, Margaret and I wandered down to a fundraiser clothing swap that was held at her church. The event was put on to raise money for a family that is trying to adopt. Entrance to the swap was $10 unless you brought clothes, in which case it was $5. It seemed like there was a good turn out! There were at least 20 or so people there when we were there, and I'm sure more came later. There's nothing I love more than getting to shop without worrying about cost. I just picked up whatever I liked with no worries! I ended up with a cute green dress (which I will blog soon) and a fur vest. I've been looking for a fur vest FOREVER. In fact, I'm sure they're not even in style anymore...that's how long it took me to find one I liked.
Margaret's prairie dress. She better blog this one.

Margaret actually ended up going home with a few things too, one of them being a shirt dress that I donated! You can see her wearing it in this post. She used it to demonstrate a VERY useful style tip.
Have you guys ever done a clothing swap? It's LOADS of fun. This is my 3rd one to participate in, and I've enjoyed them all. I encourage you all to try it sometime. It doesn't take a lot of work, and it doesn't always have to be a fundraiser. You can just get a group of people together and all bring the clothes you don't wear anymore. You'd be surprised what some people are discarding! I guess it's true that one woman's trash is another woman's new favorite dress...or something like that.
