As the spring season nears, you might be wondering how to update your wardrobe in these times of hardship. Maybe you have your eye on something new, but it won’t be in your closet until it hits the clearance racks. Yet, you are BORED with your clothes. How does a fashionista look fresh without breaking her wallet? By swapping, of course! Clothing swaps are becoming every season’s latest trend, ranging from a cozy swap at a friend’s house to posh events complete with champagne and facials. Any way you do it, swapping clothes saves your budget and the environment.
Bay Area folks, you can green your wardrobe without much green in your pocket. This Saturday, February 28th, start your spring cleaning early and swap out your closet at Swap! Not Shop! a clothing exchange hosted by Homeygrown.
