I’m a clothing swap fashionista. Thankfully in New York City I have plenty of opportunities to get my swap on. I’ve written about how clothing swaps work here on Hot Mama Daily, so hopefully you’ve had a chance to experience this recession busting way to shop.
This weekend I went to a clothing swap in Brooklyn at an outdoor art and event space called the Brooklyn Yard. The swap was well-organized with garments hanging on clothes pins; a DJ spinning funky new wave and hip-hop beats; and vendors selling Mexican food, beer, and fruit.
I brought a bag of unwanted clothing in good condition and came home with a blue Ikea tote full of cool finds including a brand new pair Xhilaration “Tonia” wedge sandals from Target with the tags still attached. The celery green shoes came out last spring and retail for $19.99, but I got them for free! I don’t wear heels, but these funky wedges have certainly inspired me to try.
