Swap clothes with the stars!
Wednesday 03 March 2010
Wouldn't we all love a whole new set of clothes in time for spring?
But unfortunately not all of us are able to afford a wardrobe overhaul, so the crafty fashionista has to come up with other ways to get her hands on some fresh clobber!
Clothes swapping parties are all the rage, thanks to the wallet-friendly concept of exchanging your unwanted garments for those of other fashion fiends.
So how would you fancy swapping a selection of your fashion favourites for some genuine celebrity items and raising funds for a good cause at the same time? Thought so!
The Skinny Cow® has taken the clothes swap party to a whole new level by teaming up with Kelly Brook to host a celebrity charity Swap Shop, to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
With items donated by the likes of Holly Willoughby, Sarah Harding and Danielle Lloyd – the exclusive Swap shops will give fashionistas the chance to breathe new life into their wardrobes through swapping instead of shopping!
By becoming a fan of The Skinny Cow® on www.facebook.com/skinnycowuk, women will be able to enter into a draw to attend the London and Manchester based events. For those unlucky gals who don’t win an invite to the Swap Shops, a facebook ‘Skinny Dip’ will let women battle it out to win more amazing fashion items and get a new look wardrobe for 2010.
Looking to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care, The Skinny Cow® will be making a donation for every item ‘swapped’ by a celebrity at the two events and online.
Kelly Brook, who is hosting the London Swap shop, said: ‘I love the idea of women swapping clothes to create new and different styles! It really encourages creativity and is all for a fantastic cause. I’ve even slipped a few of my own former-favourites in; I can’t wait to get to see all the different things people bring!’
And according to our well-placed sources, Girls Aloud babe Sarah Harding has donated the gorgeous white designer dress from the original KitKat Senses advert!
We. Cannot. Wait.
