Yay! I am featured as well as Kathryn Finney, The Budget Fashionista and Loren Silber in a Daily News article about clothing swaps, Frugal Fashion: New Yorkers Learn To Look Good For a Lot Less. BTW, love the new word “recessionista”!
“People used to do swaps where it was one thing for one thing, but it’s a lot more free-form now,” explained seasoned Brooklyn clothing-swapper Nichelle Stephens, who posts info on upcoming public swaps in NYC at fashionswapandmeet.wordpress.com.
“Public swaps offer more diversity,” she adds. “Items are sorted by general categories, like pants, dresses and skirts, and once you’re done putting out what you brought, you can take as much as you want.”
