Dress – Le Chateau *hand me down*  //  Tights – F21  //  Hat – made by my mom  //  Boots – Locale
Zebra necklace – Lustre from Montreal  //  Gold Necklace from Ten thousand Villages

I love it when my mom cleans out her closet.  She comes down with garbage bags full of great clothes.  It’s like a fun shopping spree for free!  The best kind, of course. Though we may not be the same size, I always find some fun tops, sweaters, and even the occasional dress. *like the one above*

That’s something to consider when swapping, you don’t have to be the same size.  My mom is shorter and she’s got a little more junk in the trunk.  So I don’t usually get pants because it’s hard to lengthen pants and get the perfect fit, but because she likes her clothes more fitted, and I like a lot of things looser and more flowy I still end up with a great haul.  Something to think about when debating a clothes swap with your friends too – you don’t all have to be the same size. 

Now the issue is how to get a bigger closet.
