Dallas clothing swap - with wine!

Now that my moving day is fast approaching (August 21st, and all weekends before then are booked!) I am taking stock of my stuff and resolving to only pack and move the things I really like since N's house lacks walk-in closets and I don't want my clothing in multiple rooms.

This means I need to get rid of things that I only consider wearing and all shoes that hurt my feet.  It's a new day for me.  For real this time.  Goodbye studded Bandolino slingbacks that hurt like hell, and that skirt that I accidentally had hemmed too short. 

I'm going to be hosting a clothing swap.  If you're in Dallas and want to participate, shoot me an email and I'll send you the evite.  Here's how it will go down:
Bring all the clothing, shoes and jewelry that you don't wear and would like to see go to a new home.  To me, this is the stuff that's just a little too nice for the Goodwill bag but not worth the hassle of selling.  We'll have signs to separate things by size, and everyone who brought something can pick through the piles and take what they want.  At the end of the night, you can take your stuff back home or leave it for me to take to Goodwill.
If you do want to sell some of your stuff, like designer jeans, bags and shoes, you'll mark them with the price and your name and we'll have those on a separate table so they're clearly not for the taking.
Sound fun?  Sound like something you'd like be be a part of?  Let me know and I'll work to set a date/place that's right for everyone.  So far it looks like it will be a weeknight in August.  Email cardiganjunkie@gmail.com if you want details.

As Tim says in his book, your closet should be the happiest place in your house.  It's time to clean it out and leave the items you love and bring home new ones that make you look great!

  2. Yay! I'm thinking everyone needs a couple of weeks to actually get the closets cleaned out and then we'll set a date and buy the drinks.
