The three lovely ladies you see above, @gwenbell, @srslyliz, and @sarahjbray, are hosting a clothing swap and fashion evening In Boulder Colorado on September 12th.

Gwen explains how the clothing swap works:

You show up with those items of clothing needing a new home (you know the ones I mean, the ones in your closet that you bought and thought you’d love but don’t) (it stands to reason that if it was once rad to you it might be rad to someone else).

You come ready to have fun. You try on clothes, swap, remix your wardrobe with some ultra-fashionable ladies.

To find out more about the event, including how it works, how it got stated, and who it benefits, check out Gwen and Liz’s sites.  While unfortunately none of us Chics will be able to make it to this fabulous event, we will be covering it here on Academichic so be sure to check back for a full report on what promises to be a fantastic evening of fashion, clothing, and fun and latter for  a DIY post on how to organize your own clothing swap.

    Too bad it’s not happening where I live!

    Can’t wait to see your coverage, was thinking about doing it with some friends.

    Thanks so much for spreading the word. You rock!

    Thank you for covering this event, Academichic! I can’t wait and I know that Liz and Sarah are stoked, too. Would be so rad to see this type of event spring up all over the nation – imagine the possibilities! I look forward to seeing where other folks take this – they are really straightforward & fun to organize (helps tremendously to have fellow co-enthusiasts).

    I’m so mad this isn’t happening by me! I’m also looking forward to your article on hosting our own clothing swap. I tried posting some items on Flickr’s Wardrobe Swap Shop with no luck. Hopefully a room full of friends will help facilitate the swapping process.
