Come enjoy a night of guilt free "shopping" and contribute to two great causes!
WHAT IS A CLOTHING SWAP?
A clothing swap is a great way for us to put our new, nearly new or gently used wardrobe items, that we no longer wear, to good use!
THE RULES OF THE SWAP:
Please bring a maximum of 5 clothing swap items, as detailed below, and one pair of Jeans (optional) to the event with the intention that someone else will take them home and wear them. *Take the time to go through your closet and determine which items are not right for your color tone or body shape. Be sure the item is worthy to pass along to one of our group of fabulous ladies!!*All items must be new, like new or gently worn. Should be clean and pressed. We want to simulate a true shopping experience!
*Items can be for any season. Summer pieces are still fine and Fall and Winter are great!
5 CLOTHING ITEMS:
*Not required, but helpful if you bring the 5 items as noted below.
• Bring 3 clothing items in any category -Chic, Moderate, Expensive
Chic – inexpensive items, less than $40.00, costume jewelry.
Moderate- any clothing items priced between $50.00 - $150.00. Moderately priced jewelry. Clothes from the Gap, JCrew.
Expensive- any clothing items or accessories valued over $150.00 - $200.00. Designer.
Bring 2 accessories: -purses, jewelry, hats, belts or shoes.
*How it works:
You will be given a color coded ticket for each category item you bring, and one Jean Swap ticket if you bring a pair of jeans. You will "shop" in each category “boutique” and select an item for yourself. If you bring 2 chic items and 3 expensive then, in turn, you can shop for 2 chic and 3 expensive items. Continue shopping each boutique until your tickets are gone!
Bring a couple items to donate to STRIVE New Haven and help women who are seeking employment with appropriate career clothing. You can bring one gently used purse, pair of shoes, a suit, slacks or a blouse. Thank you!!
