Swap Parties And How To Throw Them

May 18, 11 Swap Parties And How To Throw Them

Are you in desperate need to update your wardrobe, but the state of the economy doesn’t permit you to splurge on anything beyond a new pair of chancletas? Don’t despair, chica, you can revamp your entire closet without spending a single dime. How? Look no further than your circle of amigas and throw a swap party! That’s when everyone brings a selection of items they no longer wear, or fit in, or whatever and trades with everyone else’s stuff. Carmen Ordoñez from Viva Fashion Blog gives us a few tips on how to make sure your swap party is a hit:

  • Encourage your friends to bring a variety of articles. Everything from dresses, shoes, purses, pants, tops and accessories are welcome. Especially if they are in a wide range of sizes; there needs to be something for everyone!
  • It may be implicit, but it never hurts to remind your guests that all items must be clean and in wearable condition. No holes or stank of mothballs, por favor.
  • It is a good idea to request that everyone bring a minimum number of items to give the swapping some sort of balance.
  • Arrange everything by categories, making it easier for everyone to browse through the loot.

Don’t forget the cocktails and the music. It is still a fiesta!
