We all have those items in our closet that we simply find too difficult to give away, yet we simply never wear them.

So what are we to do?

Swap it!

Recently, the Skip Fashion Exchange popped up at the Sandton City Mall in Johannesburg (open 4th -31st July 2017). It offers a unique opportunity to exchange your loved, but no longer worn clothes for premium replacements.

Participants can register their garments in advance at www.skipfashionexchange.co.za or on the day at the Sandton City pop-up store and Skip Fashion Exchange staff will check each item and then facilitate equal value swaps (High Street, Premium or Luxury).

I swapped a pair of Country Road ankle boots (which they valued as Premium) for a dusty pink jacket (also a Premium item). Go do it!

While we were there we snapped a few amazing outfits of those attending, have a look:
