This past weekend I hosted a Sip & Swap with the ladies of O So Chic. If you were one of the ladies in attendance, then you know we had a great time and if you couldn’t join us, check out the recap.

We sipped on cocktails provided by Ciroc and swapped our gently used {but fab} clothes and accessories. Besides Ciroc, our other sponsors included Golden Krust Bakery, Handbag Heaven, HavaianasHappy Scarf and Housing Works. After swapping clothes for two hours, we still had a ton of clothes left over, but they all found a good home, as they were donated to Housing Works, which isn’t just a chain of thrift stores but an organization that supports those in NYC who are homeless and/or living with HIV/AIDS.

Whether the ladies were a size 2 or 12, they all walked out with at least one bag of clothes and accessories.

Sip & Swap Event

If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, then you have the dish on the Sip & Swap I’m hosting with O So Chic on Saturday, 4/28. Well, if not, then I’m excited to announce the second annual Sip & Swap. Last year the ladies of O So Chic hosted this event and this year we decided to collaborate.

Don’t know what a Sip & Swap is? It’s exactly what it sounds like. It’ll be an afternoon of sipping on cocktails {courtesy of Ciroc} and swapping clothes. Great, right?

Bring your clean, gently worn clothes, shoes and accessories and you can swap them with other fashionable ladies. Any clothes that haven’t been swapped after the event, are being donated to the thrift store, Housing Works.
