When I was in middle school, I organized a clothing swap for three friends and myself. Unfortunately, I was a rad 5’9″ in 8th grade, and the rest of the girls, well, weren’t. So they might have scored some sweet new threads for free, but I don’t remember any great takeaways.
However, this has not diminished my love for the IDEA of a clothing swap–you bring stuff you were going to get rid of anyway and trade it for NEW stuff. In my adult life, I participated in a swap at the CrossFit gym and walked away with a few steals–including a Marc Jacobs wristlet!
Point being, in the entire city of Austin, there must be other hip 5’9″ chicks:
Plus you score free drinks, cupcakes, and all the dancing you can handle.
I really think this is one of the coolest events Austin has ever seen, and I can’t wait to see how it goes down (what if I get in a fight with someone over another Marc Jacobs wristlet?!) It’s gonna be absolutely amazing, so come swap it up!
