For my last Thrifty Threads post, I wore a pair of Aldo tribal print wedges I scored from my Sip & Swap event. It was a great afternoon of exchanging our amazing clothes we no longer wanted. As soon as GangStarr Girl pulled the shoes out of her bag, I knew I had to have them. I was lucky enough to grab them first and they make a serious statement and I didn’t even have to pay a penny for them.

One question I’ve been asked is how to host a clothing swap. Though we went all out with our swap {private venue, giveaways, specialty cocktails, etc.}, you can certainly host your own party.

Following a few easy tips will guarantee a perfect clothing swap party and a quick way to update your wardrobe.

Over the holiday, something crazy happened. Well, not crazy as in weird, but crazy as in awesome.

While home in Jersey, I saw a large trash bag in the attic and being the nosy person I am, I opened it up. And to my surprise, a ton of great purses were inside. When I say great, I mean mint condition designer and vintage handbags.
