Clothing Swap Benefitting NOLAFC
Saturday, May 11, 2013 from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM (CDT)
Baton Rouge, LA
Nothing to wear for your next party, dinner date or a casual summer day with friends?
Get togther all the clothes you once loved (and your besties) and come join us for the first Clothing Swap benefitting NOLA Fashion Council, hosted by Think Twice Style and NOLAFC.
Anything from that maxi dress you've instagrammed 5 times, to jeans that just don't fit since your juice cleanse, or the sweater in your closet that is so last fall (hey, trends come back around) - any high-end or boutique items will work!
Leave the dirty or damaged stuff at home. Think about the clothes you would share with your best gals, if you wouldn't share it, don't swap it.
Tickets are: $20 in advance/$25 at the door/best friend passes $30 for two
Bring your own bag and get AVEDA goodies at the door!
Drop off at Kenneth Brown Design between 2-4 p.m.
The swap starts at 5 p.m.
The fun doesn't stop there - special door prizes from local boutique favorites will go to a few lucky shoppers that evening!
Not only will this be an enjoyable night for you and your friends, filled with shopping and cocktails, it's also for a good, fashionable cause. A portion of the proceeds go to the NOLA Fashion Council. NOLAFC is the leading organization supporting designers in the South and produces NOLA Fashion Week twice yearly.
And lastly, NOLAFC and Think Twice Style will donate all of the left over garments to Dress for Success and other chairtable organization.
Swap 'til you drop!
