becca recently gave me an old dress of hers (pictured left) and I finally got to wear it last week. Clothes swapping is common among our friends. We're all different sizes, and, like most women, those sizes fluctuate. Whenever we get together, at least one person has a bag of clothes. Other people have told me they raid the closets of friends and family.
With holiday parties coming up, now is a great time to shop your friends' closets. Instead of each of you spending money on a cocktail dress, you could swap little-worn party frocks.
I've been waiting Anthropologie's ruffled bra and panty set to go on sale. What it lacks in the sex appeal of Anya's retro ensemble, it makes up for in cute ribbons and ruffles. The set is available in cream and pink, rose and black, or grey and black, but I prefer the dark of the latter to offset the sweetness of the look. The bra was $58, which is silly for a cotton, wireless sleep bra, but the price has dropped to $29.95. That's at least worth thinking about. $30 for panties, however, is still laughable.
