WHAT TO WEAR TO THE SWAP
THERE WILL BE full-length mirrors but no dressing rooms at the swap, so it's a good idea to dress accordingly.
• Tight-fitting is your friend -- For women, the ideal swap-shopping outfit consists of a tank top and leggings (with maybe a cardigan or skirt thrown on top for style). This will allow you to try on finds without stripping to your skivvies.
• Wear slide-on shoes -- To get to the best items before someone else does, you'll need comfortable footwear. And should you want to try on shoes or pants, it'll be easier if you can quickly remove the ones you're wearing.
• Lose the purse and bags -- You'll be handed a shopping bag when you arrive, so there's no need to bring your own. And if you like to sport an oversized handbag, leave it at home -- it will only slow you down
