When you’re hoping for something new in your closet, organizing a night-in with your girlfriends where everyone swaps clothes. Make it a special night-in with a cozy atmosphere and share the cost for some wine and snacks. Have everyone bring a bunch of clothes they want to get rid of to trade.Just remember not to trade your faded pieces for a sequined tank!
