I love Clothing Swaps and here’s why: 

  1. COMMUNITY – We need it now more than ever
  2. ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH – yay sustainable fashion
  3. BREAKING HABITS – this is a low-risk opportunity to try clothes you haven’t been willing to spend money on. Get ‘em. Try ‘em out. Fall in love with new styles!

On that note, did you hear Asheville is having another City Wide Clothing Swap? I organized Ashevile’s first city-wide swap & fundraiser and it was awesome. 

Last fall, Alexis decided to do another one. She picked my brain and knocked it out of the park!! I cherish the pieces I found and can’t wait to see what I find this time.

Use code: marisol10 for 10% off your ticket price.

If you can’t make it, consider contributing anyway by purchasing a ticket (especially if you live at a distance) or donating clothes locally. They are fundraising for reproductive justice. BABES, we need this. 

If your not local, have you thought about what it could look like to have a city-wide clothing swap in your town?? I’m sure Alexis would pay it forward by offering some of her best tips for a successful event. And of course, I’m always here to answer your questions, babes.
