What I’m bringing to Swap Til You drop Part deux

I struck a deal with myself when I began “the 365 day challenge”. I said self, for every item of clothing picked up at a thrift store or a swap, you must donate or swap out an item from your current wardrobe……….Well let’s just say I didn’t really keep up my end of the bargain with myself and now I’m bursting at the seams with two rolling racks of clothing.

Although everything is organized by category I could afford to purge a few items

I have a bag of clothes already started in the trunk of my car so I thought I would put a little pressure on myself to pull at least 10 items from my closet this evening to add to the growing bag. Surprisingly enough I was able to pull 16 pieces of clothes and shoes. By the time Saturday evening rolls around I hope to have at least 40-50 items to bring to the swap. Buy the way. I’m not participating in the swap 🙂 ok ok, unless I see a really spectacular pair of shoes or a purse I must have.

Below are a few of my items:

#1 size 6 sheer plaid skirt. Its cute on, Its been worn once
