Trade It In!

It's the debut of the ChloƩ dress! This dress was worth every amount of traded clothing at Crossroads Trading Co. . I entered the store with a bundle of clothes I didn't wear anymore and walked out with my very first designer dress.

The idea of trading clothes is ingenuous! How often do we leave clothes hanging in our closet that we haven't even touched in months - even years? Get down and dirty and make the cuts - clean out the closet and trade, swap or send them to a thrift store.


In my experience once I've traded in my "I haven't touched these in forever" clothes, I don't even miss them - all I know is that I now own and twirl around in a beautiful and wonderful ChloƩ dress.

Ahhh I agree, swapping clothes is a very good idea! One person's trash might be someone's treasure!

wow you're so lucky, it's a lovely dress. I wish more stores did this, ever since I saw Jenny do it on GG I thought it was a great idea. The boyf does it with his games, it saves so much money. Maybe I will open a shop to do this when I'm older...

This is such a brilliant idea! I wish someone did that here in London...
Your blog is superb by the way.

The dress with the blazer-like jacket is a very nice juxtaposition. I especially like the outfit with the chunky necklace.

Crossroads!!!!!
