Swishing is fast becoming the new shopping. It is a great way to refresh your wardrobe and it is of course FREE! I have been to a few swishing events now and each one has been different. One was a free for all and you could take what you liked, another event was organised with a points scheme.
At lastnight's Tampax event we simply had to bring five items to swap for five items. It was so much fun, there was a flurry of anticipation and excitement before it started as there were just rails around the room so we all had enough browsing time. The only danger was if whatshername wanted the same piece as you!
We also had access to a fabulous stylist Liane who assists Mademoiselle Robot. Liane was great and was trying to get people to swap for items they might not normally buy. I think it is important to push fashion and I thought this was excellent advice. I am guilty of getting too comfortable with my fashion and style choices. For some reason when a woman hears the word FREE CLOTHES something happens...possibly a chemical reaction. All the what's and but's that usually happen in a store go out the window along with reason. So swishing is a great place to try other fashion choices without investing too much in a style. If it does not work you can just swap those unwanted items at the next swishing bonanza. So if you get the chance to swish you must do it. It is a great way to update your wardrobe, meet new people and have fun. Swishing is a woman's version of a sleepover, but far more spohisticated and with champers!
