IMG_3754 Last month, I teamed up with Glad®  to host a party like no other. Perched at the top of the hills overlooking Los Angeles, I invited some of my most stylish friends and fellow bloggers to join me for a night of fashion, fun and food.

I knew my friends had great taste and great wardrobes, but honestly, I didn’t realize how great until I saw the amazing new duds everyone got to go hoem with. While I didn’t take home anything from the swap, except some fabulous jewelry from my girl at GROCK LA, I was shocked by how many designer and trendy items the girls left with. (Um, PS. If you ever host a clothing swap, don’t do what I did and leave the swap to everyone else. Leave your “hostess manners” at the door and get in there and get the goods too!)

Here are some pictures shared with me of their amazing “scores.”

A clothing swap is really the perfect opportunity to host a party where clean up is simple: Guests got to swap, sip, (eat), and shop. They loaded up their “new” clothes and accessories in  Glad®  ForceFlex® Black Bags and took them home. All the items left over was taken by the Glad clean up crew and donated to Goodwill. This was upcycling at it’s best! Our clean up crew came equipped with Glad® ForceFlex® Black Bags: Extra-strong bags with a unique diamond texture that stretches around objects to help prevent rips and tears. This bag stretches and can be stuffed with just about anything making them the perfect solution for the leftover hangers and some of the shoes that didn’t find a permanent home.

Speaking of clean up, I had a super fun surprise in store for my guests.  Check out this video! 

Stay tuned for the full video coming March 10th!  Follow the #TrashCrashers adventure on Twitter @getglad and join me MARCH, 6th at 10:00AM PST for a twitter party!

All Glad® Large Trash Bags are available at retailers nationwide. For more information, visit www.glad.com.

I am a GLAD Trash  Ambassador and supplies for this party, including GLAD products were provided to me by GLAD.  My Trash Crash party experience is my own.

    Can you please let me know when there's another clothes swapping party coming up? I live in Santa Barbara, but at the clothes swapping parties here there aren't as many nice things to swap as at the LA events..........I often feel like I'm the only one who brings nice things, not things that are "Loved too much" =) Have a great week!!!!!!!!!!!
