Guys, I am finally a real fashion blogger because I have a blanket scarf outfit to post!

Kidding aside, I really enjoyed wearing this cozy scarf I swapped with Justine of The Thrifty Girl's Guide. Head over to Shaped by Style to see more of this look.

How to Host a Clothing Swap

I hosted my first clothing swap back in high school. I don't even remember what gave me the idea, but I had a few friends come over with some clothes they wanted to get rid of. We sat in a circle on the floor and held up our unwanted garments, trying to "sell" them to the others in the group. We giggled, tried things on, convinced each other of what to take or what to keep, and generally had a blast.

Since then, I've hosted a number of swaps — some with friends, and some with total strangers. I'm in the midst of planning another one, so I thought I'd share a few tips with you if you'd like to plan a swap of your own.
