The Big Blogger Clothes Swap

You might already have seen this floating round blogworld but if you haven't, here's what it's all about.

The Big Blog Clothes Swap
 
 
Janet from over at Words That Can Only Be Your Own and Steph from over The Wardrobe Angel are organising a big blog internet clothes swap.

The idea is that people sign up by sending in their details and then Janet and Steph will pair people up to swap some things - clothes, shoes, accessories, bags or any variation of the above really.

I love going to swishing events (if only there were more of them locally) and this year I'm doing the whole 'buy nothing from the high street' thingy so taking part in an online clothes swap sounds like a fabulous idea.

Here's what Janet has to say...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I've wanted to run a clothes swap for ages but was intimidated by the amount of work I'd potentially have to put in - and the fear that, after all the work, no-one would turn up. So I put the idea to the back of my mind, until I was chatting to my soon-to-be-sister-in-law, Steph, on Twitter recently and had a brainwave: what would happen if we tried to organise an internet clothes swap?

I'd seen Steph in her guise as The Wardrobe Angel, run individual swaps for her own clothes, and looked on in envy at Donna's regular frock swaps (envy because none of her dresses would fit me) and I started to think about trying to do the same thing, but on a bigger scale. Gathering together as many bloggers, and blog readers as possible, pairing them up according to clothes or shoe size, and letting the swapping commence.

And so her it is: the big blog clothes swap!

Want to take part? To sign up, all we need is the following, emailed to either jbistheinital@gmail.com or info@wardrobeangel.co.uk, by the 9th February:

Name:

Address:

Blog address and/or social media:

Clothes size (if you need to split this for tops/bottoms, do):

Shoe size:

Swapping preferences (for example, Do you want to swap only one item or more? Do you have specific clothes preferences, e.g. dresses only? Would you be willing, or prefer, to swap shoes, bags, accessories, etc?):

Steph and I will wade through the responses and pair you with someone of the same size. You can, if you wish, then use social media to get to know your partner and their style, or you can just hope for the best!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sounds like fun? Pop your details over to Janet or Steph and who knows what you'll end up with... :-)

  1. That sounds like a magnificent idea but are you really going to be giving away your beautiful dresses?? How will you choose!
    No one would want my tat. Sad face.

  3. This sounds like a great idea. My WI held a swishing event last year and it was so popular we've had to organise another couple!

Thank you very much for all your lovely comments; I do have every intention of replying but sometimes life with a baby gets in the way...
