Saturday, November 14



I hosted a clothing exchange last night so it's nice to wake up this morning to a house 5 bags of unwanted clothes lighter. Clothing exchanges are sort of perfect; everyone wins - you get rid of clothes you don't want and you get free clothes you do want and you also get to hang out with a bunch of friends! I am not sure how other gals do their exchanges but the ones at my house are sort of like a giant, free for all, grab bag deal. We throw all the clothes in big piles and everyone just sifts and sifts, tossing cool finds to the group or keeping them for oneself. Add some wine and some music and it's a pretty awesome way to spend a Friday night!
