"Naked Lady Party" A-K-A Style Swap!

I know what you're thinking...
"What is a "Naked Lady Party?"

Let me explain so you can rock one of your own!

A "Naked Lady Party" is a STYLE SWAP!!!
It's when (clothed) ladies get together with their unwanted fashion goods & swap them for others' unwanted fashion goods. There really isn't much nakedness going on...the name is just for fun :) We had private areas to change which I highly recommend.

At ours, each person brought at least one bag of clothes/shoes/accessories - more was welcome, of course! I gathered some girls' bags before the swap a few of us organized some things the night before. Then when guests arrived on the night of the swap, they placed their goods in the appropriate spots while others snacked.  There was a table for accessories, a spot for shirts, another for sweaters, an area for footwear, a place for pants & a closet full of hang-up items. It could have been more organized, but our group was rather informal & small. We also had mirrors up around the house...for obvious reasons. We even had some small ones on the floor for shoe-mirrors, which was helpful.  
After about 30 minutes of waiting/organizing/snacking, WE DUG IN!  With our 10 ladies, digging in was FUN! For a larger group it might be wise to take numbers, then take turns & set a limit of how many items to take & try on at a time. These rules are helpful for a larger group of ladies.

It was seriously like a bunch of sisters getting together to play dress up!


I would hear of these parties when I was in college & thought they were SO genius! Here I am ten year later & have finally arranged & been to one! 
  I swear I couldn't sleep that night because I was so excited about my "new" wardrobe! And from what I've heard, I'm not the only one who felt this way! There's already talk of holding another one for FALL!

 So many laughs!! And so many stories of where different garments came a proposal...or why certain clothes were being let go. Lots of bonding & girl talk going on too :)

 So what do you think? 
Are you ready to clean out your closet, invite some friends over & host a NAKED LADY PARTY of your own?!? 
It's something to think about :) Have a great weekend!!!

  1. I totally want to have one of these! I was just thinking about how I was getting tired of some of my clothes. Thanks for the idea, I'm going to email my friends about it!

  2. I have been wanting to do something similar with a swap-o-rama-rama party (with sewing machines etc. for alterations)... maybe someday!
    PS- thanks for your sweet comments on my Spring Shirt Refashion!

  3. love it I can imagine a good time for all come see me at

  4. Love the idea of this! How Fun! Thanks for your sweet comment on my elmo bags! I am your newest follower! I would be thrilled to have you share some of your craftyness on my {Homemade By You} link partys on Wednesdays! Glad I found you!

  5. I have never heard of this! I think it would be a lot of fun. I'm not sure my friends are enough of the same sizes to make it work though. LOL Who knows though? I'm all about planning parties these days. this would actually be great for my new blog, All Grown Up Parties, so keep us in mind:


  6. Thanks for following!! I'm glad someone else loves the chopper as much as I do. I would die without it! We eat that salsa at least once a week in the summer if not more and so I end up using it so much!!

    Also this chicken pot pie is SERIOUSLY amazing. My aunt is an awesome cook and she has great taste as far as picking what would taste good. I couldn't believe how easy this was. I had to hide it away in the fridge because I wanted to eat the whole thing out of the pan :)

  7. That's a great idea! My small group at church does something on a VERY small level, but I love it! Come share!

  8. Looks like such fun! THanks for sharing!

  9. Wow, what a beautiful house to hold such a fun event! :-) You ladies are all such beautiful women! So glad I have gotten to know you ALL!!!
