What does it mean to you?
Maybe it means cleaning house.
Exchanging your warm winter clothes for sandals and t-shirts.
Maybe it’s a process of letting some things in your life go, in order to make room for new things.
Maybe it’s about shaking things up and trying new things.
Maybe it’s about shedding your usual thoughts or trappings of life and trying on something a little out of the ordinary.
OR MAYBE IT’S JUST ABOUT NEW CLOTHES!
This past weekend, I went to my very first clothes swap — #stitchswap (click the link for photos).
For a $5.00 donation (all proceeds going to charity) and one article of clothing, I had access to mounds of clothes.
I made out like a bandit.
Three super cute bags – check out the photos – Yes, I took that flowered one home with me!
Two deliciously pink scarves
Six blousey blouses
One poke-your-eyes-out-cute sweater
Two pairs of perfectly fitting jeans (including a pair of black skinny True Religion jeans!)
WHAT DOES ALL THIS HAVE TO DO WITH YOU?
April 24th from 3-5pm
It’s All Yoga is hosting their first ever #SwapAsana!
WHAT IS #SWAPASANA?
It’s a clothes swap being held in a yoga studio.
Swap in the place where you do asana (poses)… ok, maybe not the best name for it, but it makes me giggle every time I say it.
What’s the little # for?
That’s a Twitter thing. If you add a # to your thing’s name, it makes it easier to search. So if you are on Twitter and talk about #SwapAsana – be sure to add the #, so we know who is in the conversation.
Ok, back to the details.
WHO: You and all of your female friends
ALL SIZES are WELCOME! We are trying to share the swap-asana love with all of our friends. So bring yours – we can’t wait to meet them!
But, what if I don’t live in Sacramento?
If you are close enough to drive, I think it’ll be worth the time. Snacks, cool women, the CLOTHES….
WHAT: Bring a $5 donation and at least one article of gently used clothing to swap for a new-to-you piece for your wardrobe
WHEN: April 24th from 3-5pm
WHERE: It’s All Yoga at 21st and X Streets in Midtown Sacramento.
WHY: It’s eco, it’s affordable, it’s awesome to get “new” clothes!
Leave me a comment if you have any questions. I hope you all can make it!
Today’s yoga brought to me by ME. A home practice is in order.
Today’s music is Rhett Miller – Self-Titled. A fellow Rhett fan is in town, so in her honor we’ll be listening.
