My Sista's Treasure
My Sista's Treasure the annual swap party of the year. Started in 2006 by Davina "Dayvee" Sutton as a social event among friends, it quickly became the spring season's private fashion event among Atlanta media personalities and socialites.
Do you know how a swap party works?
1. scan your wardrobe and pick out items that no longer work for you
*pick out things you won't be ashamed to share with your girlfriend...not the stuff that belongs in the trash
2. bring those items to the event
3. at the designated time, rules for the swap will be announced.
when given the O.K., you get to search through all the goods the guest have brought and pick out one item.
4. the swap is usually operated in several rounds, with tie-breakers and other games played in between.
At the end, you should walk away with a handful of new additions to your wardrobe and it didn't cost you a thing.
Swap parties are great for giving you the adrenalin of shopping with out ever pulling out your credit card.
