Ready for a Fashion Swish Party? Swishing is the party version of a free, second hand, clothes swap! It is a fun and organized way to clean out your closet, get together with good friends, and trade out your unwanted clothes.
The first Swishing Party in Tega Cay is Saturday Sept 7th , 2013 beginning at 7 PM at the Lake Ridge Club house in the Lake Ridge subdivision of Tega Cay.
The event organizer is “Educated Fashionista” Christy Strucker who is a new Tega Cay resident, a former Mrs. Kentucky America (2009) and Mrs. U.S. of A Globe (2005), Owner of Motherstucker.com where Christy blogs about vacation ideas, family friendly food suggestions and Savvy Style.
In Christy’s blog, she explains the rules of a Swish party as:
- ….. When everyone arrives, it is essentially a free-for-all. You can wait for everyone to get there if you have punctual friends, but don’t wait for too long. Consider a ½ hour “browsing” time before the swish opens…
- Generally, whoever claims something first has dibs. If there is a conflict between people as to who gets a piece of clothing, each person models the item for the group, and the group votes for who it looks best on. Another rule is that you should never feel obligated to take something unless you love it.
- Remember no scratching, spitting or fighting.
- At the end of the party, each person will go home with treasures and wonderful finds, but there will also be lots of leftovers. Whoever hosts the party is responsible for taking all these items and donating, upcycling or selling to consignment.
Any items that get left behind this Saturday will be donated to Appalachian Children’s Home, a state-licensed institution and emergency shelter for boys and girls under 18. See more in this weeks Fort Mill Times Article
