Mail Call! Shop It To Me

It's Friday, which means it's time for this week's Shop It To Me sale e-mail. Granted, I personally am NOT going out this weekend to snap up a $60 swimsuit or an $80 cardigan, however cute they are. But it's worth keeping an eye on them to see how cheap they get, right? ;) Of course by the time they are within my price range, the only size is XXS or XXXL. Of course.

Also, I thought this would be a good time to talk about clothes swaps. I'm a fan. I am a sucker for a good deal and a clean closet (clean meaning free of items I haven't worn in 2 years); a clothes swap takes care of both in the course of a few hours. If you haven't heard of a clothes swap the idea is that you gather a bunch of your like-minded, stylish friends, each of whom brings an offering of clothes, accessories, shoes or whatever to contribute to the party. Everyone then gets to rummage through (literally rummage - I have seen dining tables messily HEAPED with clothes!) and pick out "new" pieces to take home. Instead of spending crazy money on new clothes, you get to hang with your friends and pick out a few gently-worn pieces of clothes for your closet (the whole 'clean closet' part happens when you pack up a bag or two of unwanted -- or in my case grown-out-of -- clothes from YOUR closet to contribute to the swap). Fun. Green. Cheap. Doesn't get much better than that!

Here are a few of my favorites from today's Shop It To Me sale mail...maybe a friend will bring a suitable replacement for one of them to the next clothes swap. ;)
